    I don't know what to say, other than to offer my prayers and energy to her and John...
     
  3. I sure hope she gets better and when she does, that she'll still be able to create music.

    Rocco overcame a very bad situation about a year ago, and now has a new album out and is back touring with T.O.P..........we can just pray Rana can overcome the same odds!

    Once again the realities of life intervene and put everything else in perspective.

    God Bless Rana and family.

  16. hey all,

    I just got the news from Jauqo and was going to post it here. I was glad to see that the word has already gone out.

    I can only hope for the best and keep a good thought for Rana and John.

    from the low but hopeful end,


    Stew
