My mom and a good friend were next to me and each took my hand giving me strength (Mark is in the hospital and could not…

Luckily he has a great sense of humor and through Department of Assisted Rehabilitation was able to receive vocational therapy and now works part-time(all that he has stamina for) at a local Outreach center 2 & 1/2 days a week.…
