Mike. I can not say how sorry I am. This is just devastating. I know you have taken care of your family. I know you have thought about this a lot, and I for one respect your decision. Only you can say enough is enough. I gratefully appreciate all of your help for me and others on here. All I can say is, have a safe journey from here on out.
Like so many on this site, I just cannot put into words or get my head around your news.
I have been on this journey for 7 years now, and you have played such a big role on my trip with cancer[/size][/size]i don't even have the words in my vocabulary to thank you!
You have been in my prayers for years, and will continue to be.
Like many others here, I'm at a loss for words to see your news. I somehow feel I know your so well through your writing, maybe even better than people I see every day. You feel like family, and right now I feel the same way I would if an actual family member were going through what you are--shocked and saddened, but hoping against hope for a miraculous turnaround. You are facing what is to come with dignity, nobility, knowledge, and humor--all those qualities that you've brought to us here on the ABCLS forum for many years. When I first signed on here, yours was one of the first "voices" I became aware of. Even though my circumstances were, and are, very different than yours, I've always read whatever your wrote, on whatever topic. Hope you have wonderful travels with Liz. I know you will continue to live your life to its fullest.

Mike, You are my "superman" on this site. I will always be grateful for your kindness and wisdom when I was so scared and unsure what to do next. Go travel with your beautiful wife and keep filling that bucket list. I will always keep you in my prayers. Julie
