    Kay and family,
    Just read on the GSU Newsletter and my heart sank but my FAITH began to pray and intercede for you ALL. We were family at GSU/Entergy and raised our kids together and shared so much with them. There are no words to fully express this but there is a GOD who is well able to comfort and give strength to Elaena's husband, children, parents, grandparents , other family members and friends. Please know that prayer works and God is able. Sending love and hugs!
