December 30, 2007


Maybe you typed "Hillary" thinking of me and not politics...but that's just a thought. Hope you guys had a good New Year. Did you get my message? Love you!

Happy New Year David and family.
What would we do without your terrific blog. Brian has been
hospitalized since Dec. 18th so we look forward to getting some
chuckles and words of wisdom. Keep them coming.
Many blessings to you. Sue

Happy New Year to you and your family David! Glad to hear you are eating a little better now. Heck, don't ever feel guilty about sleeping've earned that right for sure.
As I reflect on the past year, I've been very blessed to have met such wonderful people like yourself. Your sense of humor is astounding despite difficult days, and I've presented in my heart, all RCC Warriors with the highest medals of courage for the past year. Good thoughts for everyone for the year ahead.
Take care,

Whew! Sure glad to hear you are up and about! Your blog is something I always, always read to Harry --- I can count on a smile on his face by certain comments of yours (always with the hells, damns and pharts!)- But really (other than those words) I often think "Harry and David think alike" and know you both are just two of the RCC warriors that are some tough dudes! Harry, too, has always seen humor in things, even when the situation is tense. Keep up the good work! Sandi

Well Sir glad to know you are doing okay and enjoying the extended napping. Life is good when we hear from you and know you are okay. Oh the joys of cancer. Never a dull moment. We are heading to the hosp to get Joe juiced up as well. Thank God for the IV's - a meal in a bag you can keep down LOL. Glad we heard from you David. Talk to you soon.
