Dear Family and Friends:
Our deepest condolences go to the family of Dennis Williams. Dennis, as you recall fell just over a week ago and had a massive brain bleed. After his surgery, it became evident that his prognosis was not what Suzanne, his wife and sisters Donna, Joanie, and Lisa wanted to hear. Dennis, a strong Christian, went home to heaven early Monday, November 25. His celebration of life will be next Sunday, December 8th at First Baptist Church. Please keep his entire family in your prayers.
Christy Taylor, was able to be released to her home this past Wednesday, November, 27th! Christy, who is still recovering from a massive stroke is going to be cared for by her dad and mom. Mom, Sherry had been with us since mid September. Our prayers and best wishes to all of them. This family is from Panama City, FL.
Michelle Fawks also was transferred to Alabaster, Alabama this past week too! Just 52 years young, Michelle had a brain aneurysm early September. She was moved from Sacred Heart hospital to Select rehab, then back to Sacred Heart for an infection and her brain shunt. She is talking, moving all of her extremities, and knows her husband, sons, and grandchildren! She is a true miracle!! We continue to pray for her as she recovers. Dan, her husband expressed gratitude for all prayers. He was telling me they would never have made it thus far without them.

During this period, his kidneys also shut down. He was moved to Select about a week ago for further rehabilitation. He is learning to speak through his “talking” valve, but still requires oxygen through the tracheotomy. He also requires three times a week kidney dialysis. She shared with me the doctors have no idea why he had a cardiac arrest.
