Bonnie: My condolences to you on Wayne's passing. I was very sorry to hear of the past battles he won and lost with this disease. We both had different challenges in trying to beat this load on our backs during our journey for at least a long term remission. I'm still in the battle. May you have peace and comfort in the coming days.

Love to you and your family Jon.
