    They think he's got cancer. He's only 49.

    Oh no, sad to hear that...hope they're wrong and can help him...

    are you close?

    We used to be fairly close. He's a good guy. I haven't talked with him much last couple of years though. I don't know what kind of cancer he has--there is just a message on my voicemail. I haven't checked my voicemail in a couple days. I want to call and find out what is going on, but I don't want to wake them up either. I think cancer has to be one of the scariest outlooks there can be. He's got two young children with my sister, a 13 year old girl and an 11 year old boy.

    Sorry to hear that, John.

    Hopefully it's treatable and he can recover. Good luck to him and your family...

    Sorry to hear that.

    Is he the father of that GLORIOUSLY BEAUTIFUL little girl?

    Yes, but probably not the one you're thinking of.

    You made me LOL.

    Please excuse the indiscretion.

    Oh, my. My thoughts are with you and your family.

    Many forms of cancer are highly treatable. I've heard of some people working close to full time during their treatments. I hope he has that kind. Good luck and God speed to him.
