I NEED A MIRACLE...ASAP!

It won’t be the first time I’d be wishing for something, either would this be the last…As humans, we always wish for one thing or the other. It’s human nature!

Afterall, where I come from, extended families or even immediate ones always have a mixture of both faiths. In the end, we are all families! The deceased, Mr. Brown Cassoma Anthonio was like any other client and I attended to him like I would any other…respect, courtesy and willingness to serv…
