Ruthe's Secret Rosesl
by Joseph Merchant, Jr.
My first encounter with angels happened when I was six years old. I was in isolation at St.
Elizabeth's Hospital in Beaumont, Texas with St. Louis Encephalitis. I was having seizures and
remained unconscious for eight days.

My poor mother never left my side. When I was conscious, the hospital full of doctors ran an endless
battery of tests on me. I told my mother twice during an especially bad night to turn off the bright
lights. She told me no lights were on. These lights were all around the room.
I then asked her who all these people were. There were about six or eight beings in the room. Their
warmth and love calmed me and took away all my fears. The other patient with the same illness died.
That was 30 years ago and I still thank God for my special angels sent to calm and heal me.
