UPDATE AUGUST 7 2017 To all my friends and well wishers on HubPages, I thank you all for your friend requests and wonderful fan mail. I am presently not writing new hubs and have not done so for some years due to the illness and subsequent passing of my Mother. I would like to say that she lived with cancer for a number of years and I stand by the hubs I wrote about healing and her healing of cancer. Her told us she was free of her cancer and i accept that to be true. Unfortunately, she was later diagnosed again with a fast growing type of cancer and was gone before her treatment finished.
I am thinking about new hubs but at present have not been able to start again. Thank you all for your kindness and I apologize for not acknowledging your comments and requests.
