I knew Gerry had cancer. Myrna (his wife) notified us of that. What I didn't know until today was that it has spread to his spine and that they've changed from trying to stop it to making him comfortable. They are an incredible couple.
Both met after each had already raised a family. Their combined family is huge, boisterous, and loving. Our writers' group loves hearing stories about Cousin Camp and other family occasions. Individually, and as a couple, they are indeed a blessing to the world.
Although I've known them for 11 years, I only met them in person last year in Las Vegas. Our writers' group organized a get-together. It was awesome. Myrna is incredibly kind, Gerry is a sweetie. They parked their RV in the parking lot of Bally's Hotel and Casino. I love that about them.
Now they're concentrating on making Gerry's time as good as it can be. He is determined to live life to the fullest as long as he can. That's a trouper.
I love you, Myrna. I love you, Gerry. God bless you.
