  • by it was money taken from my family Location: seymour on Nov 16, 2007 at 05:37 PM
    I really think it's a gift from God that they found the lady! In case you actually dont know why the jars where out it is because of my three year old baby cousin was recently diagnosed with Brain Stem Giloma- an Inoperable brain tumor and she is undergoing radiation in hopes for a miracle. The daily hospital, trips, prescriptions, medical procedures and time off work to be with their only has left family in this family in need of our help.
