Dad, Is it really a surprise if you post it on your blog? Only you can make a completely depressing matter into a stand up comedy act. I salute you. Oh, if you haven't noticed, I decided to read your blog everyday, so I don't have to read about how your doing in a Christmas card from a family member. Love you, Hillary

Love the idea of a tape from the "hereafter"...just a few people would have the talent to pull that are one of them! Turning tears to laughter would be a lasting gift to your family and friends. Hope the unviewed tape sits in your closet for years to come!

I don't post many comments on your blog but I read it everyday. With such serious substance you are always a hoot and a half. Your sense of humor is remarkable. I lost my Warrior a few months back and reading your posts really helped me during and after my son's sickness and death. You have no idea how much you help people fighting this beast and I thank you for that. He left this world without a will or any arrangements at all, you have no idea how hard that is on a family. From what I read in your last post you are taking care of business and inserting your remarkable sense of humor I might add. You hang in there young man, what would I do if I couldn't read your posts!!!!! You are in my prayers.

To make plans early is a great gift for the Knights so you did a good thing even though it is depressing. It is all part of life's journey.

It's never to late to prepare, depressing as it can be. Still Dave, I imagine you will have fun doing the tape. Please be sure to include that story you told me once of you and your dad after he had a fight with your mother. That was classic.
And now here's hoping you live long enough to be a pain in the arse.

You are a very funny guy. First you bask in the glory of prayer and evoke the power within right down to the holy foundation of faith. Then you let everyone in on your last party plans. David you are a crack up. I for one love it! And as I always say...if they can't take a joke. Let's laugh again in cancer's face. Again and again my friend.

Wait. Wait. I just got an email from the Augusta Hospital. Apparently they are missing a rather large supply of Percocet. You devil you.
