Death= The one part of life you can't escape. We are all going to die at some point....not knowing when is why we don't think about it more than we
do. But some know...some have illness that will take their lives from them. Some suffer long lives waiting for death to come and ease their pain. And
yet some end their lives by their own hands..... If you knew when you were gonna die would'nt you try to live life to it's fullest ? Would'nt you
want to do the things you've always wanted to do ? Skydive, Deepsea dive, ride that bull the man sings about ?
For those on here that know me, the few that read my crap, know Ive been gone for awhile. Not really been on here in a few months....been dealing with
my own death....yea you read it correctly. MY OWN DEATH. Sept 29th I was diagnosed with ALS...simply put I have about 4 to 6 years of life left.
Maybe two good quality years I am told. Been dealing with kids and wife and brothers & sisters dealing with my situation.
It's the hand I was dealt...as my dad taught me " I'll play the hand as best I can" Been thru the gambit, angry, sad, deppressed, no need to
consome myself or my family with sadness....decided to go out kicking & screaming with a smile on my face. Gonna do some things before I leave . Gonna
be smiles all around and laughter filling the air. Ive been giving things away like crazy..to the people I want having them. No ones gonna fight over
my shat when I'm gone. My will reads " I Openyourmind 1262 having a sound mind & a jolly spirit...spent every damn dime I had before I died". I
have picked out a gravestone.It reads " I told you I was sick" And this will be my last OP on ATS.....I'm dieing folks aint gonna spend my time on
ATS. Ive enjoyed my time here on ATS....the people, the people,the members make the site.
So with that folks, go out and live like you are dying.......I know I damn sure am. Peace & I'll see ya when I see ya....PS I aint riding a damn
bull. BFFT...probally not gonna make down to Texas....throw a briskett on the BBq for me.
