My heart is very :sad2: today upon learning of the death of Mr.Alfred Price-Williams. Many of you know what a special person he was. I am one of the fortunate ones who had the chance to "talk" to him. At the time I began participating on the BOC, someone close to me was dying of stomach cancer. Mr.Williams gave me very good advice and held my virtual hand, though he was going through trying times himself. He had a great love for life, people, animals and nature, and an even greater faith in God. Peewee would occasionally mention his ill health on the board, but it was actually much worse than he ever let on. A few years ago, we all got together and decided to send snail mail cards. This is the response I received from Peewee. I saved it because I knew one day I would want to share it with the rest of you. I don't think he would mind, and I think it shows what a strong and compassionate person he was. "Hey! Thanks for the card! I love you sweetheart. You are good people and it helps me a lot to hear from you and others like you. I am still having trouble but doing a lot better than I was. My mind just has a constant struggle to control and get things out through this body of mine as it does whatever it wants whenever it wants. It seems to be mostly caused by regular old medicines I am reacting to. I still have all my ailments, but I am able to control my body, speech, emotions and all a lot better without my meds. They tell me I need my meds to survive. Vicious circle. It is just frustrating and embarassing to be retarded and know it is happening, but you have no to little control over it. I do have it made. My doctors tell me that I am doing so much better than all the rest with my conditions. Cancers like the one they cut so much of my stomach out to get have regularly come up all over my body, make a little sore and then dry up. I regularly have heart attacks and survive with no treatment as there is none for my condition. Talk about miracles, I got them. God and life are truly great. I have so many blessings. You are one of them. I am through crying. How are you and yours? I hope everyone is well and happy. I watch daylight break and the sunrise often. When I do, I think of all of you. It is almost like you are there with me. It makes me feel good. Yes, you are one of my many blessings. I have never met you and yet I often miss you when I think of you. Thank you so much. Take care. I love you sister." Peewee I loved you too, Mr.Williams....we all did. Gone, but never forgotten. RIP.
