    Thank you so much for the phone call today and the serenade.  Pay no mind to Jathan.  I loved it.  I wanted to call you right back but I listened to your message on my break at work and had no time.  Donna gave me a ride home today and so I ended up with my mom, dad, and her.  We are going through a very rough period right now and it is amazing that you seem to always call when I need you the most!  You are a friend in times of distress! You know that scripture? I work tomorrow so maybe before I get there I will call you. Please know how much I need your friendship and encouragement. Thank you!
