With the state of unrest that is going on with this world, when I read this past Sunday’s newspaper, “Dear Annie” article, my heart just felt moved to share it.  Steve, USAF (retired) wrote to remind us that our military not only would appreciate Christmas cards, but also Valentine cards for our troops and serving military of all branches.  Annie responded:”This is a great idea! Please, adhere to the following guidelines:Do not send cards larger than 8 1/2 x 11 inchesDo not use  glitter or materials that break offKeep messages positiveDo not put valentines in sealed envelopesBundle cards and send in a single large envelope or box.Mail them to:      Hugs for Soldiers                            P.O. Box 2887

Dennis and I are so very proud of our son, Chief Marc L. Helm, who is now in his 18th year of serving the U.S. Navy.  Our grandson, FC3 Cody L. Helm is also serving in the Navy.  These men and women need to be remembered for EVERY holiday.  Please keep all our military in your prayers every day!  I include a picture of Marc at his August, 2019 pinning ceremony. 
Our deepest condolences go to the Belcher family.  Tuesday afternoon, Derrick Belcher went home to the Lord after a long battle following his cardiac arrest early September 2019 per his mom, Tez Belcher who has been staying with us.  The family is from Mobile, AL. 
Yesterday, Robbie French was transferred back to Sacred Heart Hospital for revision of his shunt that had been placed after his hemmorrhagic brain bleed last November, 2019.  Cheryl and Tom Mason, his parents, are very concerned for Robbie as he has remained in his “coma-like” state since early December.  
Chris Hubbard, according to his parents is making great strides in his physical and occupational therapy.  He is to go back to Baptist hospital for hopefully all of his kidney stones to be removed per his stent that had been placed in early December.  The stones have caused a lot of pain, per Kathleen, his mom who along with dad, James have been staying with us.  Chris is staying at Consulate rehab here in Pensacola, FL
Reagan Roberts remains on ECMO and full life support per his sister, Robin who had been staying with us.  Ronnie’s family is changing out as their schedules demand. Dad, Larry O’Neal is flying in from Texas to stay with us for the next week.  Reagan is at Baptist hospital. 
Ronnie Peavy remains in palliative care at Baptist hospital.  His sister, Tonya Walker, and brother, Ricky Peavy were staying with us but had to return to their jobs back in Cypress, Texas.  As they can, they are coming back to be with their brother.  Ronnie is in end stage liver and kidney failure. 
Blessings to all of you, Love Always in His Name!
