A Very Merry Christmas! I am happy to be back home with my wife, children and grandchildren this morning on Christmas Day.
I AM BLESSED! I want to thank my children for taking care of all my medical bills. I also want to say thank you so much to everyone that sent me messages of support, love and prayer while I was in the hospital.
I am doing better today. My journey continues, however… may God bless you all and your families this Christmas. Sincerely: Zex Manatsa.
