Prayer Request: Singer Etta James Hospitalized
The one and only Ms. Etta James, is being treated at a Southern California hospital for an infection according to her son, Sametto James. As you probably know, Ms. James, 73, is said to be suffering the effects of dementia and reportedly, though not confirmed, leukemia.
Those of us of "a certain age" have enjoyed her sultry ballads (including "At Last") for many years. Etta has been through a lot in her lifetime, she's seen a lot and I'm sure she's helped and encouraged a lot of people along the way. As my late grandmother used to say, "When you're up you're with a crowd, but when you're down, you're by yourself."
Please send warm thoughts her way.
