Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction- Cousin Jane's Stepson Needs Prayers

While we were sending 
SWEET WISHES 
to my cousin, Jane, yesterday
her stepson, Gene, was fighting for his life
after being trapped in his burning truck
that went over a winter snow bank
in Pennsylvania.

People passing by were able to finally
pry him out of the burning truck
but he suffered severe damage  and has had
two surgeries already.
His family is by his side.

He will have a long, slow recovery
so please pray for him and that whole family.
He is Jane's last link to her hubby,
that passed away not too long ago.

I found this online and believe it is the one
that was taken at the scene.
It was the only truck fire I could find in
that area.
Thank you so much for your 
Sweet Wishes for Jane yesterday
and your prayers for her stepson, Gene, today.
God bless you!

Here is part of the email that 
Cousin Jane sent me last night
after you left all your sweet comments
to her.
MY DEAREST DIANA -WHAT A LOVELY TRIBUTE TO ME AND SUCH KINDNESS AND WONDERFUL COMMENTS FROM YOUR BLOG, THANKS SO MUCH -YOU'RE SUCH A BEAUTIFUL LADY 

HA!  As you can see I have HER fooled, too!
