If you entered the New Year in good health….

Today’s Public Service Announcement is sponsored by Truitt Law:

Karl Wiedemann, a local lawyer in New Orleans, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. This will create quite a financial burden for his family. He and his wife, Stefanie, and their children will need prayers, support, and financial resources.

At this time of the year, please consider how blessed we all are and try to help out with a donation to defray Karl’s medical expenses. An account to benefit Karl and his family has been set up at Whitney Bank in the name of “Friends of Karl Wiedemann.” You can call or stop by any of the Whitney branches and make a donation.

Thank you for your consideration and prayers for Karl and his family.
