I see yet still, after being here a year and a half, new guys coming in and being almost brought to tears by the excellent responses they are greeted with when they arrive here. It happened to me in December '06. Scared and chasing around answers I found this site seemingly waiting for me. But it's just the nature of this site and it's wonderful people. Now I'm a veteran here, over a thousand posts, not all useful, but for the most part I care enough about you all that I, like VaFan ~ Cindy says, just want to give back. While worried and with late stage disease I still needed a boost on how to cope with this disease. Enter Walt Whited in September last year. War-eagle Walt. Facing adversity much higher than my own, he brought the highest level of Hope and courage and inspired me to no end. Walt's inspirational story gives us all Hope. My friendship with Walt will add something else tonight ~ a handshake. And probably a tear and hugs. This will be a very blessed meeting of two friends just trying to make the best of things. Wish us well. And I will post pictures and such on my site.
See you tonight, buddy!!!!!!!
