There are two ladies living together in Highland Park, MI (inside of Detroit look it up) along with one of their daughters and her grandfather. One of
them is unable to eat anything, ever. She has a tube that drains her stomach's acid all day long. She has another tube to feed her.
The other has no legs and is literally stuck sitting in the same bed all day every day, and all night every night. She can not even afford a Catholic
Parish Edition to read, and she is Catholic (I will be providing one next time I see her).
They have NO money, and my best-friend's (who is now dead; homicide I will provide link) sister is working two jobs and going to school to provide
what is virtually their only income.
They have no cable , no laptop, no internet, no money, and virtually nothing coming to them for Christmas.
I spent over an hour talking to the one with no legs last time I was out there, and she is praying for a laptop and internet. A laptop and internet
would literally change her entire life. I prayed for her and quoted some vital pieces of Scripture for her in this situation and wrote them down.
The one with the feeding tube and draining tube that can not eat - here is a link to how she lost her son. Take the time to read it this is not a
joke. This is a human being asking you for help. wchbnewsdetroit.com...

holding the door for everyone to get in, and that is why he got hit. He just got an A on his math test, and was going to graduate. If you knew what he
went through growing up in that neighborhood, you would know that this was the last thing anyone thought he would be doing - graduating and getting
A's on math tests. You can imagine how his mother will be feeling this Christmas.
Now you might ask - why not give her the laptop I am on? Because it is so old and slow, and also requires an external keyboard. On top of that, I will
need it to find a better job.
These people are my second family, and my families second family as well. If Masons fix this situation, I will not let anyone talk bad about them in
my presence without me defending them with zeal, and I will likely try to join one day.
A priest has been by, but the Church is apparently unable to help right now.... Considering the area it is in I am not surprised.
If I was a man with access to money and I was aware of people suffering like that I would not be idle. You are now aware of the
