Prayers for super mentor

Jerry Smyth, our monocoque mentor, is in bad health.
He fought a bout of cancer and won but his medication made him sick. He had what appeared to be a stroke but nothing was found with the MRI so it was thought to be a reaction with his meds.
His latest battle is with Bells Palsy. He was doing pretty well but I was told today that he is in bad shape. They don't no if it's the palsy or what.
So if the FIRST community could take a moment and pray for him, I think it will help.

Re: Prayers for super mentor

To Mr. Smyth:

Say the word. I'll go to war for you. The FIRST World has your back.

To my bretheren on team THRUST, in the immortal words of Thomas Paine...
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives every thing its value."

May he live to see these days renewed, and to know no more despair. (King Theoden.)

Note only did he teach our own kids, but started to reach out to other teams as well.
