Dear friends, it has been a great two years since my operation but terminal cancer has returned.  The doctors tell me I will weaken this year and without a miracle will not survive 2017. I appreciate your prayers and will hope for that miracle. Looking forward to fist bumps by the guys and very long hugs from the ladies.  Importantly, thank you for all the good memories and your friendship as I face my last hand of the day.
