The LAST WISH of a dying woman..><t –

Dear Beloved in Christ. Greetings to you and your family. I am Mrs. Linda Gabriel. A widow to late Mr. Johnson Gabriel of united States of America. I am 56 years old. My late husband was a director with the construction company in US before his sudden death after a brief illness. But before his death, he deposited the sum of$6.5 Million in my name with a bank in Texas USA. Right now i am suffering from pancreatic cancer and presently I am undergoing medical treatment in hospital here in Belgium. My condition is really bad and it is quite obvious that I won’t live more than two months according to my doctor and i have no Child who is going to inherit the fund. I am willing to donate the sum of $6.5 Million US dollars for you to help widows and the less privileged ones in the rural and urban areas and to carry out charity works in your Country and around the World in my name. Get back to me as soon as possible. Yours in Christ. Mrs. Linda Gabriel.
