TODAY MY FRIENDS F/CO DEPARTED MN, TOMORROW MY BRO, WIFE AND BOYS ARE LEAVING AS WELL ....

EVERYONE IS HEADING HOME TO EVENTUALLY GET BACK IN THEIR ROUTINES. I'LL BE LEFT WITH A DIFFERENT DECISION. I FOUND OUT I COULD CONTINUE RADIATION HOWEVER, MY BLOOD COUNTS STRUGGLING TO RECOVER SO I AM NOT SURE THIS IS THE BEST DECISION. FOR ME THE QUESTION WOULD BE WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE? ULTIMATELY, I'LL HAVE A LOT WEIGH, BUT I'LL TAKE MY TIME AND HOPEFULLY MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION. I AM PRETTY DARN CONFIDENT WITH THE LORD ON AND ALL OF YOU ON MY TEAM.

JJ -

Words cannot express what my heart is feeling. You are an inspiration to everyone you touch - even those you've never met. I've shared your faith story with so many people since my days at COG. Your fierce love for God and serving others stretches beyond any known limits.

I can't imagine the struggles you are going through. The battle between what your heart wants and what your mind says is larger than life. God is with you at all times. He is there in a hug, a look, a touch, a tear, a laugh, a whisper, a shout and silence. God is your team. He gives you friends and family to to support you - not just for the physical struggles but for the emotional pain too. Lean on us - through God we will carry you.

I love you -

J'S,

I DON'T THINK I'VE EVER EXPERIENCED THE EMPTINESS I FELT AS I READ YOUR BLOG THIS MORNING. I TRY IMAGINE THE DECISIONS YOU ARE MAKING AND I FEEL DWARFT(SP) BY THEM. I WISH THERE WERE SOME WAY I COULD PICK UP SOME OF THE WEIGHT. MORE THAN ANYTHING I WANT YOU TO BE ABLE TO GO BACK TO YOUR ROUTINE.

REMEMBER MY PHONE LINE IS ALWAYS OPEN.

JUSTIN, I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH. COUNT ON MY SUPPORT IN THE DECISIONS YOU MAKE.

Justin, God has placed you in each one of our lives as a testimony of his glory! I feel so blessed to say I now know you. Luke and I pray for you every single day. I'm glad I got to dance with you at my wedding! It's a dance I will never forget.

JJ,
We need to carry each other. Thru prayers and love that will happen. Kim said things very beautifully!!I don't know her, but sounds like a wonderful person. I'm fortunate to have such a wonderful nephew-that the Lord has given us in you! And spend some time together-I'll be working later and then heading your way!!

I LOVE YOU JUSTIN!!
