Message: Terry, it's very nice to hear from you again, I haven't been on here as much as I would like to be lately. We've lost a few family members and relatives due to illnesses and Cancer too. We are all helping each other get through the bad times though and everyone is hanging on through it all. We lost my Mom who was a poet here too in August of 2014 and since then we lost my older brothers wife Sherry to Pancreatic Cancer this past winter and just last month we lost my younger sister's husband Fred after his second artificial mechanical heart failed leaving no options left for him they had to remove him from his life support system after my sister respected his request not to keep him on a life support system. Both Sherry and Fred fought very hard and long battles against their diseases and they are both greatly missed by our families. I have been in reasonably good health lately considering all the medical issues I have faced from my heavy exposure during my tour of duty in Vietnam to those defoliants they sprayed all over Vietnam called Agent Orange!!! Other than those issues we are doing well as can be expected and trying to enjoy our summer here in Michigan after a very long and bitter cold winter this past season, I truly don't enjoy winter as much as I did in my younger healthier days. Hope all continues to go well for you too Terry!!!
