I wasn't going to post this but have decided it's only fair.
Am going into surgery tomorrow. For me it's very high risk but I readily accept that and am comfortable whatever the outcome. As I told the Anesthesiologist, for me it's a "win-win!" I could live without the surgery but I elect not to spend my final days in a wheel chair where I currently reside.
Know this. I am the happiest I've ever been in my life and am certainly among the most Blessed people on Earth.
To say I shall miss all of you (if it comes to that and of course, someday relatively soon it shall, whether or not it be tomorrow) is an understatement. I love you all equally regardless of where we stood on issues.
I wish for each and everyone of you, a lifetime filled with happiness.
I look forward to meeting you all, figuratively in this venue or in person in another and until such time,
God Bless and God Speed
