Default Bad news phone call..

I got a call from an old military buddy last night with some terrible news. A mutual friend of ours in Nashville is about to the end with brain cancer. I was floored. Truthfully, I hadn't talked to Jeff since he left active duty in 1996 or '97. That said, we had been good "work" friends the whole time we worked in a common area. He did his enlistment, and then went on his way. Apparently, he has done pretty well, and I couldn't be more proud to have considered him a friend. Try to throw some good vibes their way.

He is already in hospice care. I wish the same thing, but unfortunately, it is all but over.

My uncle(retired air force mechanic exposed to agent orange) had large tumor twice removed from his brain. Thought was his son during one visit. He made it almost 2 years after the 1st surgery. Oldest aunt on that side had passed from it back in the early 60s.

Those folks who work hospice are truly angels on earth.

When Mary's Dad was near, they made him comfortable and helped out his wife too.

If nothing else, his illness has brought a few of us together, that I hadn't spoken to in a while. Just got off the phone with another guy I was on AD with, and he is in Nashville with Jeff and his family. I hate that it took a serious illness for a few of us to contact each other, but heck, it's like I talked to them last week. I know at least my sick friend will get a message from me.
