RE: Life, Death, Choices.
May the Lord bestow blessings upon you and your wife, hopefully it works for the best in God's eyes.
It is extremely difficult to "face it head on" as one of my best friends told me when I asked him if he was going to accept the current treatments for his pancreatic cancer; his answer was no, he was taking it head on.
All we can do is hold to all good things as people. Best wishes for all things Bradley.
