Diana Templeís nephew, June 1, 2018

Hello everyone, Please keep Diana Temple and her family in your thoughts and prayers during this time of loss of her nephew. I came down to the beach this weekend to see my sis and family. We were having such a good time until tragedy struck on Sunday. My sis son Michael Pickett passed away Sunday. It is the hardest thing to watch your sis in so much pain and not be able to help her. Michael was like my son and I will truly miss him. He knew how much I loved him and you will never be forgotten buddy. Don't worry about your mother because I will be here for her and your grandmother. Rest in peace buddy because I will see you one day. The service is Friday June 8 at Hudson's funeral home in Durham visitation 6 to 7 service is at 7. Join us to celebrate Michael DeWayne Pickett life. Michael Pickett
His obituary has been posted on Hudson's website. It contains all the information in regards to his service. Thank you for all the love and support over the last few days. We appreciate it more than you know. Cards can be sent to Diana Temple, 1626 Gate 2 Rd., Creedmoor, NC 27522. May Craig, NC District Care Bear

Allyson Lee, April 29, 2018

Hello Everyone, This update on Allyson came from her post on face book. We all need to continue to pray for her and let her know that we all love her and miss seeing her. Her address is Allyson Lee, 302 East E Street, Erwin, NC 28339. Lets send her a lot of cards letting her know she is in our thoughts and prayers. Here is my update. I had the heart cath this morning thus revealing the pressure in my veins were high. So not only do I have fluid in my abdomen, my lungs, heart and all the veins in this area. Everyone is asking me what the next thing going to be to fix me. They do not know, I have so many complications. I will be in here next week getting IV antibiotics to get the fluid out of my heart so they can do the next step. I was told today that the cirrhosis was not only from drinking, it was a defect in my heart. As I sit here and look at my screen the hundred's of people who have comforted me with their prayers, remember this every one of you I truly care about and love. I don't know what to say, I am truly crushed right now emotionally. I can not give up. I won't be able to finish school with my class, I just want to graduate, to have my children proud of me. Ally. Mary, NC District Care Bear

Allyson Lee, April 18, 2018

Hello, This is Corky and I am writing for prayer for Allyson. She will be having her surgery tomorrow and she has been really depressed. This surgery will help the fluid but it has the risk of toxins going in her brain. In her recovery could you send this out so maybe someone will send her some cards or well wishes. My wife has been battling  advanced liver disease for over a year now. Her case has been going on for 5 years but now her body is in a need for a miracle to take over. I can not imagine what she has been going thru. I love my wife and we really need prayer. Thanks for everyone who is already praying for her. I know her Goldwing family has lifted her up. Thank you, Corky Lee
