Gail Sullivan said...I just want you to know how much love & respect I had for my cousin Jerry. He always had a smile on his face and love in his heart. I always looked so forward to the family visits to Louisville. I also want to comment on the blog. I think it was so very brave of all of you to put this personal battle with all the pain, hurt, agony,love,compassion and every other emotion a human can have, out here for us all to share. I know it could not have been easy at times but, I'm sure, in good time, it will serve as a tool to help you heal your broken hearts. My deepest sympathy to you and yours, Gail Sullivan

Johnny and Twyla said... It is with a heavy heart that I write you this thought. Kathy, you have been such a pillar for Jerry that I can only imagine how you feel right now. Happy that Jerry no longer has to do battle with this nasty disease, sadness that you lost your soul mate. Life is so fragile and short so the memories we need to keep with us are those which we charish most. I have you and Jerry. I have fond memories or our time in Colorado with Cisco's Optimist Platoon. In this time of sadness may you feel God's comfort and know that Jerry's departure albeit difficult, you will join him again in our heavenly home. I also want to thank you for the labor of love in this blog. Your commitment in sharing your journey and the pain, joy an sorrow. While we have been out of sight, you have not been out of our minds. Johnny and Twyla

Roger Buzard said... He was a man to whom any man could aspire to be. Yeah honorable would be the first word to come to mind Loved and admired there after Uncle Jerry was awesome always. He treated my sisters and I with kindness and respect and never like we were anoying or like he was to busy and he was ALLWAYS busy. I am so greatful to this blog, I am glad he knew I love him and that I was glad to know him. Shawn loved Jerry more than anyone else in the family I think. But he deserved all our love because he loved us all in a way that we knew he did. I will try to write more later a little over whelmed I am sorry for the Family's loss Always here for you Kathy Hug's and prayers to you all

Sunday July 27, 2008

Grady said... Jer' bro', just can't resist the chance to tell you how much you mean to me. In this wondrous slide down the banister of life, you have been my companion for almost 50 years! That rocks! We've tennised, skied, climbed underground (remember that hole in the ground Don took us into?) and done those wild memories of growing up (Trubey and the Diane Marie). You watched me break my neck! (that still hurts), I watched the IRS play games with you and MPA and now we have come to this trial of Spirit...the Love just grows and grows. My dear friend and brother (I am in the family still) I would do anything for you. The best thing I can give is my assurance that you are cradled in the arms of our Loving Mother (most people call Her the Holy Spirit- although some say Holy "Ghost" (creepy title). I know she's the sweetest loving Mother in all creation and she loves you more than she does me, because I asked her to! To any doubters I would ask this question: If you had three people in a family and one was father and one was son, who would most likely be the third? A ghost? Male domination has separated us from our Holy Mother, our "Comforter". I send Her all my love and she brings it into your dreams...healing is in Her hands. I love you so much!

Saturday July 26, 2008

Stacey said... Sweet Jerry, Wrote to you on your email address and saw today that you aren't looking at those. So thankful that Laura is keeping your blog updated.

Much love and healing vibes sent your way. Stacey

Rox said... Hello Whitlow family - I met your father years ago in Denver at his chiropractor. He has always been a wonderful, positive friend to have. His wisdom has helped me a great deal in my own life with my family. He always spoke of his family and you could see the love he had for all of you in his eyes. It was wonderful to see! He is a strong man and has strong support. Keep up the good work and thanks for all your info via the blog. I can only hope my husband, family and friends would surround me with such great love and support when I may need it. Tell him to stay strong and keep making progress. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all-Rox

Patti said... With much confidence, I told you last year that if anyone could beat this-IT IS YOU!!!! I still feel that and feel confident that you are going to be around for a very, very, very long time. It has not been easy for you, I see the pain and tiredness, at times, in your eyes. But, you have what it takes and the support from your family-that it takes.

Stacey said...

Good Morning,

Just read your blog and was sad that you weren't able to go home for the weekend at least. I've done my usual routine, watched the Sunday Morning show, called my dad, working on 5,000 loads of laundry, read the newspaper, general cleaning and now I'm off to Target.

I'm still very concerned about Warren . He will fast tonight and then have some blood work done in the morning. At least it is a start to find out what is going on with him.

So just checking in and letting you know that I'm thinking of you.

March 15, 2008

Julye said...

How are you doing today? Feeling well I hope. I hear your getting guests today for a visit. I just got off the phone with Mom and she told me Ricki & Joe were visiting today. I think it's nice that their making an effort to come and see you. I'm sure you and Joe will have a nice chat.

Kayle is enjoying her morning nap where I would love to be right now. Kayle was up last night for several hours and once I got her back to sleep my stupid cold kicked in and I couldn't stop coughing. The joy of being pregnant is you can't take any medicine so I sat awake hacking my brains out. I'm sure Kevin will be tired and want a nap later so maybe I can get a snooze then.

Take care today and I will talk to you tomorrow.

March 17, 2008

John Harris said... Jerry, I visited your Blog and it sounds negative to me ... probably not to you ... but it sounds like you are giving up to this bull shit ... come on now I am counting on you to whip this shit... Mind over matter has always worked ... and you of all people have that ability ... don't you pull this bull shit of giving up with me ... cause i know you better then that ... sometimes our minds and our bodies get tired and do what they want to do ... not what we want them to do ... so fight fight fight ... and the more tired you get the more you fight and you will win ... and if that don't work, which it should ... then I have no resource but to kick your Doctors ass ... I have beat a few of them already for a lot less then loosing a good loving friend. Come on now I am counting on you ... JUST DO IT ... YOU CAN ... Love John March 17th The life ending story is when you have nothing to look forward to .. to much pain .. depressed with no hope .. no one to love .. no one who cares .. you don't have any of that except the pain so just keep fighting, don't dwell on the dying .. just think of all the things you are going to do when you are better. Plan a nice vacation in your head, and go there with your mind. Do this all the time ... Also keep in mind, this shit didn't come on over night and you can't cure it over night. And I believe there was a "S" on your shirt the last time I saw you. Hang in there buddy, I know its hard, and I know you are giving it your best fight, but I also know it isn't over till the fat lady sings, and I don't plan on bringing her out that way for awhile. And her voice isn't all that good anyway. Hi Buddy .. I was on your blog today and it looks like you are in better spirits. The "S" must have reappeared on the chest .. LOL .. I know you can do it if anyone can, you can. You have whipped all odds in the past, and you can whip this one, I know you can and I am a good friend of GODs and he will let you live ... if you want to ... Oh shit I have to go now lightning is striking all over the place... Just Kidding ... about the lightning that is. Just remember GOD is your Master, God is your Savior, God is great, and GOD can do more things with your mind then you can ever imagine, life is mapped out for you in the beginning, just follow your own instincts to a good and productive life ... and GOD will help you .... If you want to live you live ... if you want to die you die ... I am not talking about your mind thoughts in general ... I am telling you what you really want you will get ... and it is up to you ... Deep soul ... That is what it is all about ...Deep soul ... you have it ... so use it .. Deep soul is ... you take control of your life ... deep soul is concentration on your mind ... deep soul is you believe in yourself ... deep soul is you do it no matter what anyone says ... deep soul is your decision, and GOD will help you through that decision. It sounds to me like you are in good spirits and you can go on from here ... so do it .. love ya and I am always with you ... and you are always in my thoughts.

Hello, Checking in to see how everything is going. Sorry I haven't written in a while we had a crazy weekend as I'm sure Mom told you How are things with you what 's the scoop with you? Are you feeling ok? I heard Mom gave you a haircut. I'll bet you are looking great as always.

All is well her I went to the doctor on Tuesday and had an ultrasound. The baby is doing well kicking and moving around inside. I forgot how cool that was when Katie and Kayle did it. It's almost hard to believe that a little living being is inside me. We got some cool pictures of Kelsie trying to pick her nose. Anyway I'm running about a week behind my due date so it looks like 7/19 in stead od 7/12 for her due date. God I hope the swamp cooler is in good working condition this year or I may just have to move out.

Katie is doing well her grades are good so far. She has been very helpful this week with Kayle and me which is a new thing for her but I hope she keeps it up. I appreciate the extra hands when ever I can get them. Katie has a competition for flag guard this weekend. This one is at her school so I'm excited to see it. Kayle and I had swimming this morning and she was up and ready to go. She splashed and had a ball today. If I set her on the side of the pull she will jump off into my arms now. This is a big step for her.

Anyway that's about all here. I will talk to you tomorrow.

Judy and John said...

John & I just got home from our Wednesday HUG group for church. I spoke about you and how special you were and how I wanted a special prayer for you. It was wonderful. It was so uplifting. I know that the power of God has touch you this evening. We prayed for peace of mind, for finding a donor and for continual uplifting as you go thru these trying times.

We also prayed for Kathy, to keep her knowing that she is never alone and that God is always with both of you.

One person in our group shared that he feels that you will be with us for many years to come and you will have joy in your heart.

Another lady in our group, said that her daughter lives in Las Vegas and she will call her and get her to go in to see if she can be a donor.

We just prayed that a donor would be found and we know that someone will receive this blessing tonight to share of themselves with you.

I love you Jerry Whitlow. Although I don't write often I hope you know just how much you mean to me. If ever you need, never hesitate to call.

Our prayer group will keep you in there prayers and in there hearts.

God Bless You

Jerry and Kathy said...

Wow… thanks very much for your thoughts and prays. And also for Kathy as these are very difficult and lonely times for her. I grow in strength just to be with her. And your message of hope strengthens me as well. Please tell your group THANKS from me and I promise to receive your healing and guidance as we move thru this process in preparation for a stem cell transplant. All my love. JW

Stacey said... This sucks!! Now that we have that out of the way... Sounds like you are at the crossroads and knowing you things will take a turn for the good. Thanks for keeping the blog updated so I know what is happening with you. Know in your heart that I'm thinking of you and always sending healing thoughts your way. You were in my dreams the other day. Nothing big but I remember waking up and smiling knowing that you made a visit to me. I also remember that you looked wonderful. Funny how I only remember bits and pieces of my dreams. Guess I only remember the important parts. I'll keep checking the blog to see what the doctor says.


February 18, 2008

Stacey said... Just read your most recent blog entry....oh it brings the memories back. I went through a lot of the food and vitamin thing with my brother. I can honestly say that I believe it did help him. We are so fortunate to have so much information in our hands via the internet and how fortunate you are to have Laura sift through it all for you. What I read and looked at on your blog is great. I'm with you on believing that the medical approach is not the whole answer. I firmly believe that there is a lot the can work together. What a crazy journey life can be. Thinking of you and wishing you healing vibes! xoxo

Johnny and Twyla said... Kathy and Jerry, you are in our thoughts and prayers. My parents told me one time that the first 100 years were the toughest. God Bless you both and thank you for such a beautiful BLOG site.

Tammy Jo said... Uncle Jerry, I just found out Jared and I will be in Vegas the second week of March. I sure would love to spend some time with you if you are up for company. I pray for you daily and I know God sent you here for all of us who you have made such a positive impact on. I know I am a better person because of you. I love you and will see you soon

Mary said... It’s Saturday night and we are about to go to Red Lobster to meet Jaime’s boyfriends’ parents. He just got back from Iraq . He has a month or so left in the army and then he is out. He is stationed in Killeen, Tx . For the last leg of this journey. I feel like it has been a lifetime since I last saw you. You have been through so much. I think about you all the time and pray for some good news for you and Kathy. Everything is always changing, nothing stays the same. Keep up your strength and keep in touch. Always, Mary

January 21, 2008

Stacey said...

I really enjoyed the article that you posted on your blog. I'm sure that it did hit close to home. It was just like that story in the book that I told you gave me a little more incite to what you are dealing with. I love you and wish so much that I could wave my magic wand and make all of this disappear for you (and the others that are dealing with all of this!).
Glad that you only have today and tomorrow left to deal with the pills.
As always, happy thoughts and healing vibes sent to you.

Kim St. Claire said... Hey There! Sorry we keep missing one another. Playing a lot of catch up since we've been home. Every night this week I've had sales calls, which is a good thing! How did you do in Houston? I haven't read your blog since this are you feeling today? You're my favorite cousin too by the way! Love you to pieces...xoxo

January 9, 2008

Stacey said...

Well it has been 6 days since you posted anything on your blog....are you okay? Is Kathy okay? Usually when you don't post for awhile you are busy with chemo and/or transfusions. I'm back at work and the kids are back in school (thank God). Very busy with inventory, paperwork, taxes and tearing down the Christmas stuff and replacing it with Valentine's stuff. It is windy and cold. No snow. I'm getting an award in February for my expansion of the shop. It is being awarded by the Downtown Merchant Association. They also like how I have my store front painted and decorated. That was a nice surprise to get that piece of mail. Just checking in with you and always sending you healing vibes!

January 4, 2008

Stacey said...

Sounds like you have been really busy and have had a lot of company. Whew! I would be exhausted. Glad to hear that you had a wonderful Christmas. We did. It was quiet and relaxing and after today I'm off until the ninth of January. I'm so happy. Business was good and now it is time for me and some of the projects that have been put on hold. If the weather holds, we are still going to Denver for a couple of days. Knowing you, you'll make New Years a wonderful celebration no matter where you are! Thinking of you always.
Love and hugs,

December 27, 2007

Rachel said...

Thank you for the updates, I can't imagine how tough the battle must be but I am glad to hear you are surrounded by your wonderful family.
I will tell everyone hello and please do the same for me. I always love seeing you and your brothers, Kim and my of course Chet and Mary Helen.
I hope you have a great and safe new year, filled with lots of golfing, friends and family and especially prosperous health.

December 22, 2007

Shawn said... You two look amazing! I'm glad to hear you had a good time (did you find any tall, wealthy, attractive presents for me?). I'll be sure to bug you a couple times during the next week, and I want you to feel free to call me ANY time. I have no big plans so I would love to chat. Miss you so much it hurts =o I hope you're listening to Kathy and taking care of yourself. Love you much

December 17, 2007

Teresa said... I took some time and got caught up on how you are doing through your blog. God bless you for all you are having to go through. You will always be in my thoughts and prayers. If I don't see you before this Christmas, I hope you and your family have a good one.

December 16, 2007

Kim St. Claire said... I'm so glad to hear from you...I wanted check your blog this morning, but it said website error. I have it saved in My Favorites and use it all the time. Maybe other people are trying to access it too. I'll try it again later. Anyway, how are you feeling? Are you in the hospital now? I will try and call you after while! I loved all the pictures you took, thanks for sharing those!!

December 5, 2007

Stacey said... Just a quick note to say Howdy! and to wish you a Merry Christmas. Wow, this year has gone by in a flash. Enjoyed listening to White Christmas this morning. Bought the Buble Christmas CD today. I will listen to it at the shop tomorrow. Hope you trip to Houston was successful and speedy. Thinking of you Always. xoxoxoxo

December 4, 2007

Hutch said... Whit, Heading back for Las Vegas from South Africa and if I read it right, you are on the way to Houston! I got one round of golf in Randpark, just outside of Johannesburg. Beautiful course. Check the picture...some serious greenery there. I think I'll stay put for a few day so will try to call you. If we miss (again) have a brilliant holiday season and only the best in 2008!

December 1, 2007

Aunt Tootie and Rodger said... Wasn't Thanksgiving a wonderful day?? Even the outside elements did not "rain on our parade"! Jerry, it was so good to see you and and your brothers. Just proves distance doesn't affect the love of family. Thanks to you, Tony and Don for sharing with us your time with your Mom and Dad. Rodger and I think they are pretty special people, including one's "up's and down's". Trust your day of travel goes well. Give our love to Kathy. Take care of the both of you and we'll be in touch. Love Aunt Tootie and Rodger

November 21, 2007

Stacey said...

Happy Thanksgiving!! Glad that you both have made it and I'm sure that the folks are thrilled to see you both. Wish I was there to share a pokechop with you all. I still giggle when I think about the first time your dad ask me if I wanted one. I told him thank you but I had already eaten!! Oh what fun. I'm looking forward to tomorrow and just hanging out and eating some good turkey. Things have been really busy at the shop so this will be a nice break before the Christmas madness begins. Tell everyone hello for me.

Love to all,

Novemeber 21, 2007

Alan said... I think Gail said it best.I hope you guys have a wonderful Thanksgiving together. Sure wish I could be there for the midnight stories and (porkchops) try some 4roses, Made here in Kentucky of course. I went by Vivian and Leon's yesterday and had a very nice visit. I thought they were going on down to Fl. Maybe Leon had a turn for the worst? Vickie called with some not so good news that could be holding them here too. I know their thoughts are there with you guys. She was looking forward to the trip. You and the rest of the family are in my prayers all of them. He knows what's needed. Hugs all around

I can well imagine the tall tales being told, and the laughs that go right along with them. Give everybody a big hug for me and tell them I miss them all. As always you stay in my prayers.

Hutch said... Hi Whit! Stopped by the office hoping to see you and the booth at the show. No luck, it's you and me on the golf course one of these days! I still have this bottle of Meerlust Rubicon SA wine for you guys when I can catch up with you. I am leaving for South Africa this weekend and will call you when I get back. Maybe a long way away, but my thoughts are always with you! Keep getting stronger and I'll see you in a few weeks.

Patti said... I am thankful this Thanksgiving, that such a dear friend of mine is ABLE to spend Thanksgiving Day and meal with his parents and siblings. I am even more thankful that his Blog is still on the Internet. I am thankful that my youngest son has found the love of his life and is enjoying their life together in Seattle. I am thankful that I can write this to such a dear friend and share my thankfulness with him. I am further thankful that I know, beyond a doubt, that God exists. Love you my dearest friend of 35 years. Trust you will get through this!!!

Jerry and Kathy said...
We are blessed with more friends than a person deserves. I hope all your family has a wonderful holiday. JW

Rachel Whitlow said.... Hello from the beautiful bluegrass state! I understand you are traveling rather often to tend to your leukemia and i am so sorry to hear that, you are always so full of life and energy and i can't imagine how difficult this must be on you. I hope you are currently at home resting and doing well. I will be in Las Vegas and would love to be able to get lunch or just visit, if you will be in town. I will be there Sat December 1 to Tues December 4.

How are you feeling?

More and more of my customers, who share their health stories with me,

are able to bounce back Peggy, a 60 year old female in great shape,

received a diagnosis of type 4 colon cancer about 4 months ago. They

did not give her great survival statistics. This last week, she told me

she beat it...can you believe that.

Kristy, a gal at work, battled lung cancer for more than 2 years and

today she is celebrating 5 cancer free years.

I don't know why I hear so many stories....Is disease becoming more

common or is the medicine better so now more people are talking about

it....Or maybe I'm just getting older.

I'm an optimist...the medical technology must be getting better.

I understand you are confined to a hospital room. Hang in there, you

will be better in no time.

Mark Van Tilburg said... I’ve been keeping up with your blog. The only thing is I can’t figure out how to leave a response or input comments. This has been a really creative way to keep everyone informed. Although, I assure you that many of us out here would rather be communicating in regards, to another topic. I applaud you both on your personal spirits. We all must face everyday looking at all that we’ve been blessed with, opposed to complaining of the things that we don’t have. The greatest healing comes from within each of our own lives. Negative and pessimistic thoughts will block the flow of healing and the joy of life. I had made a request for the corporate offices of Waffle House in Atlanta , GA to visit your blog to read the comments you had posted about their hospitality. They sent this small gift of 2-logo’d tee shirts to my house and I’m sending them to you. Take good care of yourselves. Receive all my love.

A poem from Stacey... To realize the value of a sister, ask someone who doesn't have one. To realize the value of ten years, ask a newly divorced couple. To realize the value of four years, ask a graduate. To realize the value of one year, ask a student who has failed a final exam. To realize the value of nine months, ask a mother who gave birth to a stillborn. To realize the value of one month, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby. To realize the value of one week, ask an editor of a weekly newspaper. To realize the value of one minute, ask a person who has missed the train, bus or plane. To realize the value of one-second, ask a person who has survived an accident. Time waits for no one. Treasure every moment you have. You will treasure it even more when you can share it with someone special. To realize the value of a friend or family member: LOSE ONE. The origin of this letter is unknown Remember... Hold on tight to the ones you Love…Life may not be the party we hoped for, But while we are here we should dance.

Becky and Cecil said... Hi there, Hope you got back home ok. Had not heard from you, did not know if you got my e-mail or not. Just thinking of the two of you. Hope everything is going well. wont keep you, just wanted to say hey and love you lots. Hugs and Kisses

October 23, 2007

Cousin Gail said... Hi Jerry, I'm so sorry things didn't work out for you with the donor. I hope this change in plans will work out well. The port you may have put in is what Mom had to do. It actually worked out very well for her. She had hers for years. I'm glad you will be with your Mom & Dad for Thanksgiving. That alone will be good medicine. They are the most wonderful people. What great friends you have in Jim and Laura. They sound fantastic. Give the family a hug for me when you get together and know that you are always in my prayers. If I can do anything for you, don't hesitate to email. Love & Hugs,

Jerry and Kathy said...

Nice to hear from you. Dad told me that your Mom had a port in her chest and I've noticed most people in the chemo lounge have that as well. The PICC line was invented at MD Anderson 20+ years ago and they seem to adhere to that more. However, mine became infected this week and was removed on Saturday. I will contact my cancer center today to begin the process but push them in the direction of the chest port. Was pretty easy to clean, flush and change the dressing? Tony is meeting me in Florida to visit Mom and Dad. I'm looking forward to the whole family including Vivian/Leon and Tootie/Roger and Jim/Bobbie will all be in Florida at that time. We'll only be together a few days but I'm certain every minute will count. My best to you and your family and God willing I will make it to Kentucky for the reunion next year... the whole bunch of us. JW

Jerry – sad news. Well, let’s hope we find a way to make the best of it. I find things often work out for the best even though differently than planned.

October 17, 2007

Tom said... Hope all is going well, when do you expect to hear from the other donor? What would I need to do to see if I could be a possible match, if i could help you out I would sure like to be able to do that? Can I just go to the local hospital to give blood and let them know that I want it tested or sent to be tested to see if I can match for a bone marrow transplant? I don't know what the chances of this are but I am willing if it will help.

Godspeed, dear ones.

Kim said... Hi Jerry ~ I just finished reading the lastest entry on your blog. Going home is the best medicine I think. Home is always a wonderful place to heal. Call us when your home and all settled! I love you to pieces ~ xoxo

October 17, 2007

Stacey said... Good Morning,
I'm sure that you are still recovering from your long drive home. I know that it always takes me a day or two to feel normal after driving that long. Well bud, I am at a lost as to what to say....I guess I will just share my thoughts. I was so angry and sad when I read that your donor had cancelled. I keep telling myself that there is two sides to every story but I find little comfort in those thoughts. I don't know or understand how someone could live with themselves knowing that they didn't follow through with something of this magnitude. I'm truly happy for you that you are back home. Magical things can happen when the heart is happy. Sarah and I have had many laughs and fun watching your virtual vacation. I hope that you continue building that. Like my mom would always sing....What a difference 24 hours makes. Keep posting on your blog and know that I'm thinking of you always. (I've had a couple of restless nights thinking of you and the Home song running through my head.)
Happy thoughts and always with love,

October 12, 2007

Tammy Jo said... Uncle Jerry I am so sorry the donor didn't work out. For some reason God lets bad things happen to good people. Don't lose faith we will just need to pray for a miracle. You are always in my thoughts and prayers. I Love you

October 10, 2007

Roger said... Wow!! Well Uncle Jerry... I am sorry the doner dropped out. If anyone can make their life better you can.You have always been an awesome person and I know you will always be. You are a good man... one that I have always admired and loved. you can do anything so go have fun at home AND again I say if there is anything I can ever do gimmie a holler. Love you uncle Jerry

October 10, 2007

Debbie said... Jerry & Kathy--I am sure you both have so many mixed feelings at this time, but you need to know that you have plenty of friends & family that love you both....there is no greater medicine than that!! I am going to agree with both of you that this is a BETTER PLAN for your body----perhaps the other choice was just not meant to be FOR YOU!!I am SOOO glad you are returning to us..and Kathy, we will make sure he takes GOOD CARE of himself---even if we have to BEAT it into him!!Have a safe trip home---See ya soon..

October 3, 2007

Hutch said... Hi Jerry! Back in the country from a long haul down to South Africa. Was very glad to hear you are getting out for some golf! I still owe you a round when you get back here to Vegas. Hit em long and straight! Best Always

September 23, 2007

Cousin Alan said... Well we all missed you guys at the reunion. It was not the same without you. Glad to her you got in a round of golf. Maybe you should play more golf. Oh I gave all your other cuz a hug for you that means I had to hug them 2 times. (haha). some ask for your blog sight I told them I would email them the information and your email. Thanking about you a lot God be with you and your's. Will keep you in our prayers!!!!

September 23, 2007

Becky and Cecil said... Hey You Two, Just thinking about you, and wondering how things are going. Tomorrow is the Family get together. You are going to be missed, but thought of often. Bumpy came in today, we had dinner with Mom and Dad. Mom is doing about the same, doing about as well as possible. Well, I wont keep you, just wanted to say hi. We love you lots and are always thinking of you.

September 22, 2007

Bob and Pat said... Me again, hit the wrong key i guess. Did you send us Houston's rain? Vegas and Mesquite got hammered pretty good thru the night, moving on north into utah. Had no idea your procedure was such a slow process, ultimately it will certainly be worth the wait. Thinking of both of you daily, our prayers and thoughts with you always Lots of Amor

Jerry and Kathy said...
Actually, Bob, you have probably had more rain then here in Houston. I don't think we've had rain here for 7-10 days. Bob, Pat and Robbie, can't thank you enough for keepting an eye on our home while where here. Love JW/KW

September 21, 2007

Gail said... Wow, what a ride for your emotions that must have been with the insurance co. I'm glad that it worked out the right way. I want to send you to a web site that I just really love. It has free inspirational movies. There are 3 that I am most moved by. First is "THE RACE", second is "TO A CHILD, LOVE IS SPELLED TIME", and last is "THE DASH". Everyone of the movies they offer has great music and scenery that i'm sure you will enjoy. Anyway, keep up the fight and know that you and the family are in my prayers. Love & hugs

Jerry and Kathy said
Tuesday was not a day we care to repeat again. And Gail... thanks for the site. I've watched your selections and others as well. JW

September 20, 2007

Roger said... Wow! What a day. I am glad it ended with blessings. Keep me up to date. all our love and blessings

September 20, 2007

Debbie said... Hello my friends-- I am so happy to hear that things are moving forward--that you have been blessed with not just one donor match, but 3---how's that for thinking positive!! Keep your spirits high & when you return to LV, we will raise our glasses high & have a few too many!!! Keep your thoughts positive and a smile on your face & your expectations will become reality for both of you. Love ya both,

September 19, 2007

Weldon said... I was driving to work yesterday and started thinking about you and Scott. I hadn't heard from anyone for a while and I was wondering how it was going. Today I walked through RR for the first time in 3 weeks and ran into Scott. Almost like he read my thoughts from yesterday. Glad everything is coming together for you. I do miss our golf games together and as usual I shoot 81 one day and 92 the next. Still can't figure this stupid game out. Going to try and catch up to Scott for lunch next week. You keep your chin up. I want to get you back out on the golf course early next year at the latest. Love to your wife.

Scott said he ran into you at Red Rock (our favorite place) and you asked about me… thank you… so I thought I’d drop you a line and give you our blog site for you to check on some time when you have time. We live across from Hermann Park Golf Course. All I’ve been able to do is walk over and down the path and collect balls. I now have 8 and I plan to play golf tomorrow with rental clubs and used balls. I hope you’re hitting them straight and often – stay well as this is no fun and the process has not started. I’ll keep you posted. Best wishes. JW
