Charlie (Frog) McMichael lives across the street from me. His wife Kathy call today saying that he is not doing well at all and she called hospice. They are to come in today and it does not look good for him. She would not like to have any phone calls at this time. You may want to send cards to Frog and or Kathy. Definitely keep them in prayer.
