I am so sorry to hear of this crazy detour your life is taking. But, after hearing of all of the other insane stuff you've been through, I'm confident that you will survive to tell the tale. I wish I was going to be at the CDU reunion to connect with my CDU bros and sistahs. But I pray for your body to mend and to continue your role as awesome dad, husband, and friend.
Received word while traveling Italy. You have been in our prayers while staying in convents and visiting Cathedrals. Even lit a candle in the Domo in Siena today. If I thought it would help could even light one at St. Peter's Basilica in Rome tomorrow, but better yet will include your name next time attending the temple.
You will be in our thoughts and prayers as you prepare for another one of your marathons.
"The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong;
But to he who endures to the end".
Keep the faith always!
Hey-- thought of you just now when I read this quote: “One of life’s great rules is this: The more you give, the more you get.”
AND....you've made "giving" your way of life SO the getting is no doubt coming your way! Hugs and love from your big sissy.
Thank you for your blog so we can all keep updated. Julie mentioned your diagnosis last week and we've been anxiously waiting for more info. Your positive insight is not surprising at all and we will be patiently waiting to read all your updates, probably be a best selling survivor book one day. Prayers and aloha from Hawaii! 🌺
Just wanted to take a moment to send lots of love and best wishes to you and all your family - you sound so focused and positive in this blog and I am sure these two attributes will help sustain you. We just never know what's around the corner, do we, all we can do is make the most of what and who we have with us on this journey through life,
Lots of love & hugs
Dog man do!
I'm thinking and praying for you. Your strength and super human positivity I know will be tested, but I have 100% confidence in your Jedi mind trick ability to overcome the obstacles and challenges physically and mentally. I've never met a person like you and knowing you so well, this mutant gene is about to be thrown into the Octagon and get its ass' kicked. A big Bob Marley shout out to you and your family, irie/one love.
Greg, we are so sorry to hear that you have to deal with this. I loved reading your blog; you have a beautiful perspective on this "journey," a loving family and community, and a strong faith to help carry you through. We are so connected to your family through Capitola Junior Guards, and you will all be in our thoughts and prayers. Love and light to you! Elise
I posted yesterday via my iPhone, and talked with your mom yesterday afternoon. This is over-whelming news for all of your family and friends. While we are sad and scared about what the future holds for you, we remain POSITIVE about your ability to fight with all you have!!! Remember your energy and determination in your teens??? Climbing out windows for adventure?? Harness that same energy now! Your enthusiasm for life and love of people will give you the momentum you need!! Stanford and SF have fabulous doctors!
We look forward to progress reports!
Here is a quote I memorized when my closest friend was fighting cancer….it was her motto:
"Yesterday is History,
Tomorrow is a Mystery,
TODAY IS A GIFT,
and that's why they call it the PRESENT!"
Hug everyone and enjoy your gifts!!! Sending love and prayers!!!
Admiration is just a word, but what I feel in my heart when reading your musings about your heart, mind, soul as you work your way through this difficult time, touches me to my core! Your writing is such a gift to us, who stand, hopelessly, on the sidelines. Our prayers are fervent and numerous because we love you. We love how you communicate.
Thank you. Let our prayers and loving thoughts comfort you and your dear family/
