Default My Brother-in-law needs positive encouragement

My BIL, Dan had a liver transplant a year and 1/2 ago and it is failing due to other complications. Thinks are not looking very positive for Dan right now and although he is scared to death he is choosing to remain positive mentally. My sister, Jeannie, is scared to death. They have a 17 year old son named Sam.

I would love to ask the favor of as many as possible to send Dan upbeat, positive cards and notes of love and prayer for his health. I still believe in miracles. Dan is my brother-in-law but has been like my real brother for 20 years. Please send something if you can fit it into your schedule. I would mean so much to me personally. This is such a loving and wonderful community.

Dan and Jeannie Smith
18405 Burtfield Dr
Olney, MD 20832

With love to you all. Kittie

I will have something on it's way by monday. I know what it means to need positive reinforcement from others and it feels good to be able to give that.

He will be in my thoughts. I'll send him a card I made tonight. You are very thoughtful to spread the word for them. They probably need all the love and support they can get.

I will certainly add Dan and Jeannie to my prayer list. Cards of encouragement really do help lift your spirits when you are ill and feeling "down". I'll get a card off as soon as possible. Hugs and Prayers for you and your family.

You are all wonderful. My sister wrote in an email today that they were getting cards from all over the country. As many as eight a day. What a fantastic tribute to our community.

Thank you so much for touching my family's life. It means more than you know.
