Dear Bill,
We met at my job you came in with randy to get the phone. I finally had some time tonight and wow i was amazed by the video. I honestly can say i was moved. I honestly say that iam glad you are a survivor and your helping those in need. my mother has cancer ive seen the trouble that she faced just dealing with the chemo and the aftereffects of the medicine, days in and out she felt like the world and the heavens had opened up and were ready for her, i honeslty can say i was never worried about what life is until i came to realize that i could loose her, thats when i decided that i wanted to move back from michigan and be near her so that i could be there if she ever needed me, although we can never predict the future and we cant live in fear. I came closer to realize that living is more important if you can do something meaningful, although we try to climb the highest peaks, all we need to do is listen to the world around and live in it helping others and we easily surpase those mountain tops. Thank you for sharing this video with me. Honeslty iam glad we met and you gave me this website to view. Thank you for being you. Please continue to pass this along as with your permission i will do the same.
Sincerly,

- Jonathan Ranon
