As many of you know, former Cat great Mike Casey has been having some serious health problems and he recently wrote a fan who had written good wishes to him, this letter in response:
I want to sincerely thank you for your kind words. More importantly, I thank you for the many prayers. Bob, I can certainly tell you God is faithful to answer the prayers of His people. You have no idea how many prayers throughout Kentucky are being offered upon my behalf.
I am continuing to get stronger and the infection is under control with progress each day. When the infection is totally healed, I will be placed in the heart transplant unit to wait for my new heart.
Bob, please pass along my gratitude and deep appreciation for all the cards, letters and emails which I have received. My friends, family and the many True Blue Kentucky fans have continued to be loyal even in my time of adversity. This has truly been a blessing to me. May God bless each and every one.
Bob published the letter here and we reprint it here so that Cat fans can know how much their well wishes have meant to a former star for the Big Blue.
