I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

A Long Goodbye


Today I am mourning the loss of Danny,James brother..he was a wonderful brother-in-law and we were very close.They both had lymphoma.
James was diagnosed in 2003 with B cell stage 4 and chose not to have any treatment.He wanted to live the rest of his life without sickness from chemo or radiation and it was already all through his body and in his bones.
Danny was diagnosed 10 yrs ago with B cell lymphoma..not as aggressive as James kind.
Danny had every treatment available and lasted a long time.In his 60 yrs he battled polio as well as cancer.He raised a disabled child and lived a life, full and happy.
We spoke every couple of days on the phone and I travelled to Oklahoma to see him in June..Im so glad I did.
Now they are united once again as brothers.Tonight I will have a glass of merlot and celebrate the life that belonged to Dan Taylor...RIP my friend.

I am saddened t hear of your loss, and I also believe your life has been enriched by having had such wonderful people in your life too. I feel blessed having just known about these people, and not having even met them at all.
Huggs and love to you and yours.
