My Friend Del
Del told me that he had Prostrate Cancer and was treating it. He hadn't been to a doctor in several years and by the time he had his PSA tested, it was 117. He said it was bad but they were treating it and although it had gotten dangerously out of his Prostrate Gland into other parts of his body, he felt they would be able to control it. He didn't talk about it much, although I quizzed him about it often because at the same time my PSA tests were coming in rather high. Del just enjoyed life and didn't seem to worry about anything much. He was always in such a good and friendly mood. He never met a stranger.
In just a few short years, Del was gone. The Cancer had spread from his Prostate into his bones as Prostate Cancer nearly always does. We visited him in the hospital several times and in a few months he was called to that blessed Campground in the Sky. We only got to know Del a few short years, but he left a permanent impression in our hearts. He was a GOOD guy!! No, make that a GREAT guy!!
Del, Ole Buddy, we miss you and I know your wife Pat misses you very much. However, I know that our Lord called you home for a purpose and you are living in peace. I can see you riding the trails and leading the pack!! We love ya Man!!!
I will never forget "My Friend Del".
I have one request of all my male readers and friends................please get a PSA test every year.
It is a GREAT WEEK!!!
