Hurricane Alert & Prescription Medication Concerns

One of the strongest Atlantic storms ever recorded has caused damage on several islands, including Barbuda, Anguilla and St. Martin

 

FOR ALL THOSE ON MEDICATIONS & HOW THIS STORM MAY IMPACT YOU

For years I have warned about the issues that could arise due to any type of emergency that could lead to patients not being able to get their medications for a period thus being forced into abrupt withdrawal. When the FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose, whether increasing or decreasing the dose can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis this is a serious concern. And when you know how many pharmaceutical company manufacturing plants are based in Puerto Rico, North Carolina and New Jersey which may all be in the wake of this storm it could cause even some longer term problems with availability.

 

FOR ALL THOSE IN THE WAY OF THE STORM ON MEDICATIONS

Florida officials began ordering evacuations as Hurricane Irma intensifies to a Category 5 storm. Anyone in the target zone of Irma please be safe and don’t forget your medical directives and medication. See if it’s possible to get early refills due to the storm. People were forced into cold turkey withdrawal in recent hurricanes from their prescription medications because they didn’t anticipate the damage and the difficulties in getting refills after the storms.

Latest Alert from Florida: The state of Florida has ordered all prescriptions to be refilled even if it is not time yet. Basically they said “get all your prescriptions now because the pharmacies have been told to fill them, then get out of harm’s way.”

 

FLORIDA LAW CONCERNING ADVANCED SCRIPTS 

(1) In the event a pharmacist receives a request for a prescription refill and the pharmacist is unable to readily obtain refill authorization from the prescriber, the pharmacist may dispense:
(a) A one-time emergency refill of up to a 72-hour supply of the prescribed medication; or
(b) A one-time emergency refill of one vial of insulin to treat diabetes mellitus.
(2) If the Governor issues an emergency order or proclamation of a state of emergency, the pharmacist may dispense up to a 30-day supply in the areas or counties affected by the order or proclamation, provided that:
(a) The prescription is not for a medicinal drug listed in Schedule II appearing in chapter 893.
(b) The medication is essential to the maintenance of life or to the continuation of therapy in a chronic condition.
(c) In the pharmacist’s professional judgment, the interruption of therapy might reasonably produce undesirable health consequences or may cause physical or mental discomfort.
(d) The dispensing pharmacist creates a written order containing all of the prescription information required by this chapter and chapters 499 and 893 and signs that order.
(e) The dispensing pharmacist notifies the prescriber of the emergency dispensing within a reasonable time after such dispensing.

IF NARCOTIC- Pharmacist MUST get oral RX and permission from doctor for 3 day supply.

(f) A prescription for a controlled substance listed in Schedule II may be dispensed only upon a written prescription of a practitioner, except that in an emergency situation, as defined by regulation of the Department of Health, such controlled substance may be dispensed upon oral prescription but is limited to a 72-hour supply. A prescription for a controlled substance listed in Schedule II may not be refilled.

ANTIDEPRESSANT CONNECTION TO LSD & PCP – ELI LILLY PATENTED LSD 2/28/1956

Someone on Facebook shared with me a website on the “benefits” of LSD to get my response to this website that really upset her. The following is the comment I posted on their site to help them to see how insane what they have posted about LSD having “benefits” is and where it all came from! I thought you would find this information very interesting, especially if you have not yet learned it in reading my book on antidepressants, Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare!

LSD & PCP MIMIC SEROTONIN TO PRODUCE HALLUCINATIONS

First you should know that LSD and PCP produce their hallucinogenic effects via mimicking serotonin. That is right, the same chemical you have heard so much about as a happy, warm, cuddly neurotransmitter that everyone needs especially if you are anxious or depressed!!! So as the serotonin level increases over time instead of an instant reaction like you are on LSD this LSD effect takes place over a period of time as the serotonin increases. So in this gradual process it appears that YOU are the one going insane, rather than the drug producing the instant insanity you get from LSD as it mimics this neurotransmitter known as serotonin.
This site did not even mention that Sandoz initially introduced LSD as a way to CHEMICALLY INDUCE INSANITY so that science could learn how psychosis is created! They have a long list of “benefits” and then list all that it supposedly helps treat as side effects to LSD! So just like antidepressants it causes what they are telling you the drug treats!!!! See why I always have said it sounds like Eli Lilly pulled out all their old marketing materials on LSD, which they patented the end of February, 1956, to use in marketing their new “slow fuse LSD” in the form of their antidepressants Prozac and Cymbalta?!
Find the link to this website I am responding to below my comments and links to additional information and PLEASE remember in sharing this information to anyone taking one of these drugs that they NEED to know how to wean safely off these drugs or it could be disastrous! So share with them our website www.drugawareness.org so they can see how to get the help they need in doing this. It has been my experience that doctors wean patients WAY TOO FAST as they once did with steroids, not understanding the reasons why safe withdrawal must be so gradual.

MY COMMENT ON THE LSD CONNECTION TO ANTIDEPRESSANTS

“Wow! How did you get hold of Eli Lilly’s old marketing material for LSD?!! That clearly is what this is, right? As they patented the synthetic version of LSD for the CIA to be able to have massive amounts to use in their mind control projects in early 1956.
Wow! How did you get hold of Eli Lilly’s old marketing material for LSD?!! That clearly is what you have posted here, right? But  of course missing from your material here would be that Eli Lilly patented the synthetic version of LSD in early 1956 at the request of the CIA. The CIA wanted massive amounts to use in their mind control projects during the Korean war. (Hmmm…wonder if North Korea’s current leader found one of the CIA’s old stashes of LSD which would certainly explain his behavior! Or perhaps he is just using one of their newer “slow fuse” versions which have a strong effect upon Orientals – explained below.)

LSD WAS ORIGINALLY MARKETED TO CHEMICALLY INDUCE PSYCHOSIS


PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL OF THESE SYMPTOMS OF LSD TOXICITY ARE IDENTICAL TO
SEROTONIN SYNDROME WHERE THE SEROTONIN LEVELS BECOME ELEVATED
TO DANGEROUS LEVELS – A SIDE EFFECT OF ALL ANTIDEPRESSANTS…
Also missing is any information on how LSD was used before Lilly’s patent is missing from your post as well. You would think though that most people reading about LSD certainly would want to know that Sandoz Pharmaceutical who first offered LSD (in its natural state – ergot fungus) had it listed as a way to chemically induce insanity so that scientists could see how insanity is caused. Obviously their honest marketing of the drug was a total failure as no one stood in line to take the drug for that reason (Gee I wonder why?!! LOL!)

AFTER ELI LILLY MARKETED LSD IT BECAME A MIRACLE CURE FOR MENTAL ILLNESS

So Lilly with their marketing brilliance and amazing ability to buy medical research ghost written to perfection, (See this example where they bought/bribed the approval of their new “slow fuse” version of LSD, Prozac: (http://www.drugawareness.org/meet-dr-john-virapen-the-man-who-bought-prozacs-approval/) at that point decided to come up with the material you have posted here to promote their latest “Wonder Drug” and had people lining up to take LSD voluntarily! (Apparently all those people lining up to take LSD had trouble comparing the risks to the benefits in order to see the massive discrepancies that showed the drug actually CAUSED everything they were marketing it to treat – or maybe they just never bothered to read the list like patients and their drug pushing/drugged up doctors of today do not read them.)

FAR MORE SPENT BY PHARMA ON MARKETING THAN RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT

Is it any wonder Lilly, as most pharma companies, spend FAR more on marketing than they do on research and development?! $ell, $ell, $ell, is their bottom line! Along with what we MIGHT logically surmise as more sinister motives when considering their history and those with whom they associate.
But now that Lilly has their “slow fuse” version of LSD, their so called “antidepressants” Prozac and Cymbalta, flooding the market over the past three decades, along with all the other Prozac clones (like Zoloft, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, Effexor, etc.) society has been able to witness firsthand how well these drugs produce insanity in normal subjects:  www.SSRIstories.NET! So now Sandoz can use this for their far more honest marketing of LSD as a product to chemically induce insanity.

CIA PUBLICLY REQUESTS A NEW DRUG FROM PHARMA AFTER CONGRESS BANNED LSD – HERE COMES PROZAC!

(For additional information on the similarity between LSD and antidepressants you can find that in my book Prozac: Panacea or Pandora? Our Serotonin Nightmare! with a portion of that  information included in the post below including the CIA’s public request for another drug from Pharma after LSD was pulled from the market by Congress banning the drug.)

48 HOURS ONLY!!! WATCH THE INSPIRING MOVIE “MAY I BE FRANK?” FROM DRUGS TO HEALTH

The Picture Above is Frank After and This is Frank Before

How Frank Ferrante Went From Depressed, Suicidal, Seriously Ill

to Healthy in Only 42 Days!

So many of you were disappointed when I reposted the blog on the amazing transformation of Frank Ferrante in the movie “May I Be Frank?” because the link to the free viewing of the movie had expired. Well today I got an email from Food Matters who are offering a free viewing of the movie for the next 48 hours beginning this morning!!! So I am encouraging all of you to watch it to see the amazing changes one can make with diet and other alternatives in such a short time. Keep in mind that Frank not only had been on Effexor for 10 years, but during the same time period he also was being treated with Interferon for Hepatitis C, and I think he was also being medicated for diabetes. The Hep C was gone in 23 days! You will witness an incredible change first hand and Frank will keep you laughing through most of it.

(WORD OF CAUTION: If you are not accustomed to a NY Italian’s rough language, get ready to ignore it and watch the miracle of Frank becoming who he says is the person he came here to be!!) Our original post on Frank’s story is posted below.

(ALSO BE CAUTIONED THAT FRANK DID NOT COME OFF HIS EFFEXOR COMPLETELY DURING THIS TRANSFORMATION. WE WILL BE SPEAKING WITH ONE ANOTHER SOON TO SEE JUST HOW HE WAS ABLE TO DO THAT AND HOW LONG IT TOOK HIM. PLEASE CONTINUE TO ENCOURAGE THOSE CONSIDERING WITHDRAWAING FROM AN ANTIDEPRESSANT TO DOWNLOAD MY MP3 “HELP! I CAN’T GET OFF MY ANTIDEPRESSANT!” ON HOW TO DO SO SAFELY BEFORE MAKING ANY CHANGES IN DOSE: https://store.drugawareness.org/product/help-i-cant-get-off-my-antidepressant-mp3-download/ )

Have you watched Part 5 of the workshop yet?

If not, click here to watch part 5 now! Then click the link in the upper right hand corner where it says “Watch Now”

There are such valuable insights during this part of the workshop, as we discuss more of the emotional side of cleansing and health journey. We can’t cleanse our bodies without cleansing our emotions, and both are incredibly valuable.

Make sure to check out my fun and inspiring chat with Frank Ferrante. Frank has a truly unique perspective on life and health and has come so far in his journey.

We want to thank you so much for joining us for this workshop, and also want to commend you for taking the time to educate and inspire yourself to live a healthier life.

So now you might be wondering, “How how do I put these learnings into action?” This can be the most difficult part of the path because we often don’t know what to do next!

Our 7 Day Food Matters Cleanse is the perfect next step for you, if you are ready to start rebalancing your body and removing toxins that are holding you back from experiencing ultimate health and vitality.

It’s so easy to let our health be put on the “backburner” and not realise that we are robbing ourselves and those we love of our best self. I often think back and wonder where my father would be today, if he had not taken action and made his health his #1 priority! It’s kinda scary to think about…

ON MEDS: LAS VEGAS DESERT STORM VET SHOOTS DAUGHTER (25) AND SELF

amanda landis

Amanda Landis

Comment from local news media KTNV TV by Ann Blake-Tracy · Top Commenter · Executive Director, International Coalition for Drug Awareness (www.drugawareness.org) at Executive Director, International Coalition for Drug Awareness

“After over two decades of tracking murder/suicides, school shootings, workplace violence and mothers killing their children I can say without hesitation that the answer to this tragedy lies in the prescription drugs the father was taking especially when he was likely being medicated by the VA.

From the article below we read: “Jenice said her husband, who was a Desert Storm vet, had recently been taking prescription drugs and may have been drinking following the argument.”

“I have a current case of diagnosed “homicidal ideation” produced by the antidepressants Celexa and Remeron in a young military man. I am absolutely shocked by the multiple drugs they handed out like candy to him that all interact negatively and then refused to give them for weeks at a time when the FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant, whether increasing or decreasing, can cause suicide, hostility or psychosis!

“The large number of murder/suicides in those you would never expect such behavior from is epidemic and shocking and almost always related to antidepressants or other serotonergic medications!!!”

WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

The FDA also now warns that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis. And these reactions can either come on very rapidly or even be delayed for months depending upon the adverse effects upon sleep patterns when the withdrawal is rapid!

MOTHER INTERVIEWED IN LAS VEGAS MURDER/SUICIDE OF HUSBAND AND DAUGHTER

North Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) — The North Las Vegas woman who watched her husband kill himself, just moments after he killed their 25-year-old daughter is speaking out.

“I just hate that they are saying it was a heated family argument. It wasn’t. It was four and a half, five hours later,” Jenice Landis said.

Jenice said she is still trying to figure out how an argument over housework at midnight led her husband, Greg, to kill their daughter, Amanda then himself Sunday morning.

“I just told him, ‘Greg I’m really not feeling good. I really need to sleep can we do this tomorrow. I know this is a ridiculous argument you are having with me.’ And Amanda woke up and said, ‘Dad, leave her alone and let her sleep.’ That is about all there was to the argument,” Jenice said.

Jenice and her daughter were staying in the same room while Jenice recovered from surgery.
They both went to sleep only to be jolted awake around 5 a.m.

“I woke up to gunfire and flashes and gun smoke. I rolled off the bed and I know that is the only reason I am alive, because I felt gunshots going by me and I looked at my daughter and he had shot her in the chest and her chest was nothing but blood and gore,” Jenice said.

Jenice then said her 52-year-old husband turned the gun on himself, leaving her to wonder how the man she was married to for 27 years could do such a thing.

“I didn’t think my husband would ever hurt one of his children. He wasn’t that person,” Jenice said.

Jenice said her husband, who was a Desert Storm vet, had recently been taking prescription drugs and may have been drinking following the argument.

Police said they will not be able to confirm that until they get toxicology results back. For now, Jenice and Amanda’s twin brother are just working to cope with the loss.

“My daughter was a beautiful creature and her life ended way too soon, and I don’t want people to ruin that celebration of her life that we are going to have,” Jenice said.

North Las Vegas Police are not releasing many details about the murder-suicide or details about the fight, saying it is too early in the investigation.

TOXICOLOGY RELEASED: ANTIDEPRESSANTS AND NEWTOWN SCHOOL SHOOTING???

Adam Lanza

ADAM LANZA

ANTIDEPRESSANTS AND NEWTOWN SCHOOL SHOOTING???:

From the article below you will see that we are now hearing that Adam Lanza’s toxicology has been released and was clear for any alcohol, illegal drugs or prescription medication.

After tracking school shootings for two decades I will say DON’T believe it!!! Why? Take a look at this list again: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpFoivbZH1o&feature=youtu.be

… and here is the direct link to this list where you can read more on each individual case: http://www.drugawareness.org/ssri-nightmares/school-shootings

WITHDRAWAL: The report has no mention of withdrawal or the fact that the FDA has warned that any abrupt change in dose of an antidepressant can produce suicide, hostility or psychosis – all of which we witnessed on 12-14-12 in Newtown, CT. Thus, rather than dismissing the possibility of one of these drugs being involved it should open up even more questions about medical records that have not been disclosed.

NOT THE NORM: As you can see it is not the norm for a school shooter NOT to be on an antidepressant which is why I have learned to continue asking questions until all questions are answered.

TOXICOLOGY TESTING: What you need to know about toxicology tests is that they do not have tests for many newer medications. It takes some time for them to be developed. For instance when working with the family of the Amish school shooter in Lancaster, PA area we found that if we did not know WHICH medication we wanted them to look for that they could not test for it. His mother and I had wondered if someone at work or a friend might have shared with him something they felt had worked for them. (Happens all the time! Or they will even slip something into someone’s drink feeling they are helping them.) But with us having no way of knowing which of all the medications that might be they could not test him for an antidepressant.

GOOD INDICATION FOR TOXICOLOGY: Yet we had good reason to test for an antidepresant in that case. You see 85 year old Sarah Glick (who lost a relative in the shooting) owned a health store there and Sarah has long been a dear friend who greatly admires my work and has had me come and lecture there several times. Sarah called to let me know that the shooter had recently sent word that he wanted to come and try something natural for his depression “since nothing else had worked.” Well obviously anything else he had tried would not have been natural if he was wanting to come and try something natural after using whatever it was he had used previously.

PATIENCE: If there is one thing I have learned from these cases over the past two decades it is that someone somewhere knows the truth and sooner or later it will surface if you wait. I have learned patience. In one case it took over a decade to get the truth but thanks to one of our directors with the International Coalition for Drug Awareness we did. And no, that case is not yet on the list you see, nor are at least three other documented school shooting incidents which are missing from this list because I have not yet had a chance to add them due to so many new cases of antidepressant-induced violence coming in non-stop.

I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which we have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

PLACEBO PERFORMS AS WELL AS ANTIDEPRESSANT IN TREATING DEPRESSION

NIH study

 PLACEBO PERFORMS AS WELL AS ANTIDEPRESSANTS

THIS INFORMATION FIRST CAME TO LIGHT 5 YEARS AGO BUT FEW SEEM TO HAVE BEEN MADE AWARE, SO IN CASE YOU MISSED IT THIS INFORMATION DEFINITELY BARES REPEATING AND WE NEED YOU TO SHARE IT SO THAT OTHERS BECOME AWARE. WHAT IS LEFT OUT OF THE ARTICLE BELOW ON THIS NEW STUDY BY THE NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH IS THAT UNLIKE AN ANTIDEPRESSANTS, A PLACEBO COSTS MUCH LESS, LACKS WITHDRAWAL SYNDROME, AND HAS FEWER SIDE EFFECTS OR AFTER EFFECTS!!!

Study: Placebo performs as well as antidepressant drugs in treating depression

by: Jonathan Benson,

(NaturalNews) The more that researchers truly study the effects of antidepressant drugs on depression patients, the more it becomes painfully obvious that these mind-altering medications are utterly useless. A new study conducted by the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) has revealed that antidepressant drugs work no better than talk therapy, placebo pills, or basically anything else, at relieving depression.

Funded in part by the drug industry, the new study follows the same pattern as several other recent studies that, even though they were not intended to do so, actually expose antidepressant drugs as a scam.

WARNING: In sharing this information about adverse reactions to antidepressants I always recommend that you also give reference to my CD on safe withdrawal, Help! I Can’t Get Off My Antidepressant!, so that we do not have more people dropping off these drugs too quickly – a move which I have warned from the beginning can be even more dangerous than staying on the drugs!

Drug Awareness Big News – What We Have Been Putting Together For You!!!!

WE ARE EXCITED TO LET YOU KNOW THAT WE ARE STARTING A DRUG AWARENESS MEMBERSHIP PROGRAM TO BETTER HELP TO SHARE INFORMATION & EDUCATE AS MANY AS POSSIBLE ABOUT THESE DRUGS…WHAT HAS GONE ON IN MEDICINE & IN COURTROOMS, & IN THE MEDIA SINCE THEY WERE FIRST INTRODUCED. WE HAVE PUT TOGETHER AN ENTIRE LIBRARY OF AUDIO & VIDEO TO TAKE YOU THROUGH THE HISTORY OF THE PAST 20+ YEARS SINCE THESE DRUGS WERE INTRODUCED. (YOU MAY SKIP BELOW TO OPPORTUNITY TO SEE WHAT WE HAVE PUT TOGETHER FOR YOU OR SEE OUR HISTORY DETAILED BELOW.)

HISTORY/BACKGROUND: Most of you know that since 1990 I have been researching serotonin & antidepressants & gathering information from the media & court cases on these drugs. You also know that I began gathering cases involving these drugs at the same time. At a local meeting in Salt Lake City of those concerned about Prozac people begged me to become the local director for the Prozac Survivor’s Support Group. I graciously declined explaining that I did not see how I could spend the time researching & writing my book about antidepressants & do that as well. My world turned upside down the following day when the 20 year old son of a local attorney jumped to his death outside my downtown office window. His dying words to the responding officers included the fact that he was on Prozac. That was the day I agreed to become the Utah director for the Prozac Survivor’s Support Group. In September of that year I testified before the first FDA hearing on Prozac & now am the only one who has attended every FDA hearing on SSRI antidepressants ever held.

When Rosie Meysenberg & I met in 1996 we joined forces in gathering & documenting these cases. We began with gathering a group of antidepressant cases of women who were committing very violent murders & murder/suicides – something that stood out in society as a rarity. Rosie & I continued this effort gathering cases of murder/suicide, parents killing children, children killing parents, school shootings, workplace violence, road rage, air rage, False Accusations of Sexual Abuse, soldiers committing suicide, murder & murder/suicides, female school teachers seducing male students, etc. A decade later Rosie & her husband Gene paid me a visit to gather and consolidate as many cases as possible gathered over the years to began putting together a searchable database of these cases to post on the internet. That database is now located at www.ssristories.drugawareness.org & has been the basis for two major medical research studies so far. Sadly Rosie left us a week ago to join those whose battle we have been fighting for two decades before getting a chance to see in action what she knew we were working on.

Then in 1997 Mark Miller, who had recently lost his 13 year old only son, Matt, to a Zoloft-induced suicide, after only one week on the drug, joined Rosie & I to put up our website at www.drugawareness.org . He did a marvelously impressive job taking Drug Awareness quickly to the top of the charts on the net as so many families searched for answers as to what had happened in their families! This was the humble beginnings of the International Coalition for Drug Awareness. Over the years many have joined us in this battle for truth about antidepressants & their impact upon our society.

Also over the years everyone seemed to expect me to gather the media coverage in the newspapers, magazines & television. It seemed that I quickly became the antidepressant library for the planet documenting the peddling of these drugs to our world. That is what we are opening up now to make available to everyone. Since 1991 I have been doing radio & television shows & newspaper & magazine articles/interviews on the SSRI antidepressants. I have lost track of just how many, but they are all safely tucked away to document this antidepressant age & stand as a witness of all that has happened as a result. We are pulling them all out, dusting off the cobwebs & making them available to our members. More & more will be added each & every month.

DRUG AWARENESS MEMORIAL: We also want you to be aware of the memorial area we made available a few years ago. This is for you to place videos or just pictures of your loved one lost to these deadly antidepressant drugs. If you have not yet put together a video collage of your loved one we do have professionals who will do so for you at a discount so that you too may post your own video. I encourage you to go to the memorial area of our website to see how to go about this. Please allow people to see how much our world has lost with the loss of your loved one – their talents & contributions they would have offered to our world that we will now never see because of these drugs. You understand & feel that loss more than anyone because you were blessed to know them so well. Make the world see what you saw in them so that they can understand too what all was lost when we lost them! I refuse to allow them to remain numbers! I want to world to see them for who they were.  Memorial

Rosie and ssristories.drugawareness.org

For all of you who have appreciated www.ssristories.com I would encourage you to post a quick thank you note for Rosie Meysenberg, our Texas director for the International Coalition for Drug Awareness.  Since the mid 90’s Rosie & I have worked together in gathering cases involving SSRI antidepressants. Those early stories formed the beginning of www.ssristories.drugawareness.org. She & her husband, Gene, put together the SSRIstories website, an incredible searchable database of these cases & then Rosie began to add more and more cases as the search engines became more and more available to us on the internet for news articles. Finally reaching a total of almost 5000 cases. Two major medical articles have already been written with this database as the catalyst.

Now Rosie is battling cancer & for the last two weeks Hospice has been there assisting she & her husband with her care. She is asking for our prayers. Please join us in praying for her. And please send her a thank you for the great work she has done for us all – dedicating her life to documenting these cases for us at great sacrifice on her part.

The following is the link to her Caring Bridges page where you can leave a message:

And the following is the latest update from her sister-in-law:

A word about Rosie
I know that all of you who have been so gracious to write in Rosie’s guestbook, also are probably wondering how she is doing. Hospice has been helping them for the last couple weeks. Rosie is bedridden and very weak. Gene prints all of your messages and reads them to her so keep them coming. Mostly she wants and needs your prayers. We all know and love Rosie so lets be there for her. Thank you so much.

Rosie’s sister-in-law,
Joyce Meysenburg
