    Dear Bishop Curry, rest well. We all have your back sending heavenward thousands of prayers for healing and good health. Thank you for taking care of yourself.


    As I expected, the surgery was routine. With early detection and prompt surgery, he will have a complete recovery with little chance of the cancer returning ever. Same story with me fourteen years ago. Thanks be to God.
