Strange, it has been but a few short months, I have yet to see your face or learn your name, and still I have come to know you as more than a friend. You are one of a kind, your intellect, humor, and selfless desire to help others when most would be concerned with self is an inspiration and example for us all. You set the bar very high. I have mixed emotions, both glad and sad that you are here, you make this journey more bearable for everyone.
I'll be thinking of you Friday as you cross swords with the beast once again. If thoughts, well wishes, prayers, etc. were enough, you would be healed many times over by those of us here. Please let your wife know that the "extended family" is thinking of her as well. I wish I could be there in person to lend you both a hand or shoulder as needed.
My wish for you is smooth sailing in the days, weeks, months, and yes, YEARS to come. Remember, you can't control the wind, but you can adjust your sails. I know, a golf metaphor would be more apropos, but I like what this says.
Your brother in spirit,
