The husband of a friend of mine was in a motorcycle accident this past weekend on their ride back from a wedding in Portland. He hit his head pretty hard and is now sitting in Harborview with severe injuries. Things are now so bad that she is considering whether he would want to live if he were incapacitated. I can’t even imagine what a difficult time this is for her and their family. Yet again, I am without the words to properly express my love and concern to someone who suffers. She and her husband have close friends and family surrounding them and an extensive network of people praying hard and opening their hearts to bear some of the burden. Hug your husbands and wives, tell the people you love how much they mean to you. Life is complicated and, often, too short or burdened by sickness and pain.
Most of all, keep fighting, Gary. This world is not ready to lose you.
