The third batch of cards came today and once again, I get to get on my knees and say thank-you to all of you and God for laying the desire to help with sending cards to Al.
I don’t know what I am going to do after they stop! LOL. Now each day when I go to the mailbox, he smiles real big, and says, I bet there is a card there for me!
Tonight, he could not open any of his cards. He was too weak, so I tore them open for him, and then he could not read the writing on any of them.
I had an eye doctor appointment for him last Friday, but because of his fall and many hours in the ER, I had to reschedule for this coming Friday. I did ask the doctor about his eyes today, and he said, Well, you know , there are muscles behind the eyes.
Ok, that was just what I wanted to hear. Thank-you very much for making me feel better!!!
Tonight, I want to give thanks to people who Al received cards from:
Sheila and Michael, from Longing End
I will forever remember each of you for what you have done for my brother. He does smile so big when I hand him his cards, which is what I was hoping for.
If there is anyone that wants to still send a card, no pressures from me, just if there is anyone, please email me at
and I will give you a mailing address.
Bless each of you and all others who have been so gracious!

Have you considered “rationing” the cards so they last longer? Then he’ll have something to look forward to for a longer period.
what a good idea!!!!!!! thanks!
Wonderful … but poor postman *smile – Good luck with doctor visit – will be thinking of you both.
thank you my friend, i am anxious to find out the news
That I can understand. Good luck to you both.
I’m so glad that he’s enjoying them! Blessings to you, Terry 🙂 Praying for you both!
it is so nice to see that smile come out!!!! thank you so much!!!
Of course! 🙂
Terry, I hope you don’t mind that I took the initiative, but I tweeted (shared on Twitter) this blog post. Hopefully we can keep those cards coming in. They seem to help both of you. 🙂
Oh thank you Tara. That is a wonderful idea! Let’s hope that it keeps those smiles a little bit longer……………..at first he did not know what to think when he started getting them, but now, he looks forward to the mail! hugs to you my friend
If even one in five people that sends a card happens to forward the request on blogs, Twitter, FaceBook or similar, you can literally have a stream of cards carrying you through several months.
Let’s hope more will do the same. You two deserve something like that. 🙂
thank you and i hope it works for his sake
