I had the pleasure of meeting Tony in Las Vegas. He took the time to come to my hotel to meet me. We talked about PCa for a little bit but most of our conversation was of the personal variety. He is truly a gentleman. He is a wealth of information and a great supporter to us all at Healing Well. I'm looking forward to the GFMPH in Baton Rouge to meet more of my PC brothers.

You guys have it all wrong. The pleasure of meeting any of you has always been mine.

I really enjoyed Ed's visit and company. Thank you for contacting me, Ed, when you set out. It gave me good time to plan on the visit. I'll see you on the next trip.

And you never know just where I might pop in. :-)

Even though I lost some money at the slots and black Jack, I more than made up for it by meeting Tony.
