    • It’s about being positive, reflecting, and praying, Hugh. Understanding this is likely a tough time for friends and family; it is best to keep positive thoughts and pray that she has a speedy recovery.

      Best wishes
      from those who care.

      I cannot understand why you are commenting unless you are able to say something positive or encouraging, you appear to be bereft of any normal compassion or empathy.
      Or…… to put it simply, just shut up unless you have something helpful to say.

    • I dont think Hugh Jampton is religious. Nor do they understand how it works. Or has an ounce of sympathy in his body.

      • Or they’ve never been presented with tangible evidence that prayers have ever made any difference to anything and that such statements on a religious level are utterly empty. However expressing good wishes at least offers a bit of positivity even if again it’ll never achieve anything meaningful.
        Probably the best thing for most of us to do is a few minutes overtime and pay a bit more tax of which a tiny bit might get to the nhs, or donate to the air ambulance.
