Our little Red Wings fan in the first photo is probably celebrating this morning, as the crew from Detroit defeated Dallas at home last night to move on the the Stanley Cup finals.

I am once again here, asking all you good Pasty Cam viewers to pray for Kevin. It will be a year this Friday, May 23rd, that he had his bone marrow transplant. We just found out last Friday that the Leukemia is back again. It is a strong, aggressive Leukemia, so they are once again treating him with a high dose chemo to try to put the Leukemia in remission. If they get it in remission, they will then proceed with another bone marrow transplant. Please keep him in your prayers that he can once again beat this cancer. Thank you.

Mary... I am so sorry to hear of this update. I wish for Kevin, yourself, and all of your family you would have recieved much better news! Prayers are coming your way from my house to yours! God's Blessings to your family!!

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 10:39 am:

Mary, I am really sorry to hear that Kevin's leukemia is back again. My thoughts and prayer are with him and your whole family that they can get it into remission! {Hugs} Take care, Marianne

Praise the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits-
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases...

By Snowman (Snowman) on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 11:42 am:

Know that your family and Kevin are surrounded by our prayers and wishes for remission. From all the Pastycam family. God bless.

My heart aches with your sad news about Kevin. Every prayer I have is coming your way.

By Serena Sturm (Serena) on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 12:29 pm:

My prayers go out to Kevin!

I had been wondering about how Kevin was doing. All good thoughts coming from here also.

My very close friend who has leukemia had a similar setback, but he is now doing quite well. I sincerely wish the same for Kevin.

Hello Pastyland,
Had something devastating happen here at The Villages Golf and Country Club Sunday morning. An Eightplex condo unit caught on fire, 4 units completely gutted, the other 4 I'm sure will be a total loss from fire, smoke and water damage right next to my home.

I had considerable water damage too, but the firemen saved my home. (San Jose's Best) It seems the pressure from those hoses is so hard it goes right thru the stucco. It buckled the screen and came thru a closed window and thru the roof.

I lost one of my neighbors in the fire and five firefighters were put in the hospital. Only one has been released as of now. It was a very quick moving fire where the neighbors had to run for their lives. They could not save anything.

Just got my power back on today but no gas as yet. It seems there is something going on between the city inspector and the gas company and they cannot get together to get the people's gas put back on. Sounds like Washington - nothing gets done when you need it.

Except for the strong smell of smoke around here, everything is OK.
http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_9303444?source=rss_viewed according to the papers the condo they were unable to access was were they found the body. It is also where the fire started, not in the upstairs unit. The fire was contained in the middle of the afternoon but they were still pouring water on it at 8 o'clock in the evening. The fire department watched it all night long as it kept steaming/smoking.

By kay Moore (Mskatie) on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 06:04 pm:

OMG Bev so glad you are okay. What an awful thing to happen! Are you able to still stay in your unit okay?! Please take care and let us know whatever you are able to do and how you are. Ms Katie et all.

By Pennie (Trolldiva) on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 06:16 pm:

((((((((((((Bev)))))))))))) Glad you are ok! Please keep us updated.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 07:15 pm:

Bev, Will be thinking about you now. I'm so glad you're safe and so sorry for your neighbor. You take care of yourself. How's your daughter doing?

By Laurie B. (Ratherberiding) on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 07:40 pm:

Bev, So glad that you are ok. What a terrible thing to happen.

Mary, Kevin and your family have my prayers as well.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 08:45 pm:

Mary, you know how I feel. You guys are always in my prayers!!!

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 09:14 pm:

Kevin and his family will be in my prayers too.

Bev: I'm so glad that you are safe and sound.

By Beverly, San Jose (Beverly) on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 09:47 pm:

Thank you everyone for your concern. I often think that you save and collect your little treasures for a lifetime, and they are scattered about your home in those special little places that please you on a daily basis that bring you happiness and wonderful memories. . . which one of these treasures would you take if you had no time to decide but had to leave your home immediately? Or do you just carry them in your mind and know that you had them for a little while?

By Mary Drew at Pasty Central (Mdrew) on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 - 10:25 pm:

Thanks for all your prayers and wishes on Kevin's behalf.
Bev, glad you are safe and sound, even though a bit soggy at the moment. To answer your question, in my mind, possessions can be replaced and those that can't you do just as you said, "carry them in your mind". The same with the people we lose in our lives, we carry them in our minds and our hearts forever.
