Today we lost a friend of my daughter's to meningococcal disease. Wallie was just 30 years old. He had a girlfriend, a mum and brother and 3 nephews who adored him. He only contracted the disease two days ago but by this morning the doctors said they would have to amputate both his legs, one arm and part of his face to even have any hope of saving him. Mercifully they let him go and he passed away a couple of hours ago.
Those of you who pray to a higher being, please remember Wallie and his family and friends in your prayers. Those who don't pray, please send good thoughts.
