Dear Beloved One,
It is times such as this i value the taste of a 1968 Bas Armagnac grafted wine or a vacation to the Mediterranean just to take my mind off all the heartaches & pains caused by years of conflict within my family.
I will get straight to the point so that i wouldn't take much your time.
I am suffering from pancreatic cancer and the medical team over here in Gabon are doing all they can to prolong my days on this earth. A tumor has grown within my pancreas and my system is totally dysfunctional. I can't seem to eat anymore, and my time is growing nearer as each day passes on.
All my life, i have been charitable with my families wealth; not because i never really worked for it but because i have always had the heart to give to the less privileged so that the Lord can give back to me in his own way. My time is short, i will not be able to continue this journey anymore but i want to give you the responsibility when i am gone to take custody of my inheritance and spread it across millions of charity homes worldwide. I know you would be wondering why don't i contact the charities myself, but my experiences in the past have made me learn that if you put all your eggs in one basket, it would definitely get squashed. There is a need to spread the wealth around, especially during an economic recession where access to capital is slow. I will empower you fully but the decision is yours and yours only to make. I need to rest my fingers for a bit but I expect to hear from you, maybe sometime soon because I canât predict my time anymore.
Mrs. Lydie Francely
