    Dear Bishop Curry;
    It seems we not only share a Love of God, for I too underwent surgery for a subdural hematoma on October 30th this year after experiencing severe headaches for several weeks. It is a life changing event as you are now well aware. I know we both can agree that we are living witnesses to the wonderful power of God as he answered all of the Prayers offered to him on our behalf. My Family and I will continue to Pray for your continuing recovery.
