Please send prayers and good thoughts for my friend, Steve Rogerson. His son is best buds with my son. Steve has always been full of life and energy, wrestling with the boys and playing Xbox with them. He builds guitars as a hobby, and has been planning to start one for me.

He recently found out he has cancer, and is already in a lot of pain. So much, if fact, that he cannot rest, even with strong pain medicine. He went for a PET scan Friday, and they expect results tomorrow or the next day.

Although he and I aren't best of friends or anything, this has hit me like a ton of bricks. Steve's a great guy with a wonderful family. It breaks my heart as a father. I can only imagine how afraid he is, knowing he might not be able to be here for his son as he grows into a man. That would be my greatest fear; not being here to guide my children and watch them grow.

Thanks, my friends.

Prayers, please, for my father-in-law and his family. He was recently diagnosed with terminal cancer, and thanks to the medication, his lucidity comes and goes---he's only periodically "with it." Mr. is looking after him this afternoon while Mr.'s mother takes a break to go to a family Easter gathering. It's hard on the family to see him failing. Thank you to all of you.
