Hello Everyone,

I would like to take the time to thank all the members off the CCB for your prayers and support through my struggle with cancer. Your support for my wife and son has been so heart felt and very much needed.

You've given me the strength to beat this horrible decease. I've used your shoulders and heart till this day and continue to do so. You have my angels and God has heard the prayers. Your gifts and calls have been at all the right times and I can barely get through this post without telling you how much I Love all of you.

My wife whom I'm so proud of has been there every minute and I know it was you there too. I wanted to thank everyone personally for the gifts you've sent and the list of thank you cards is long.

Please, don't ever change. The new members will find out what a family we have here and are all welcomed with open arms, if they choose to stay. Me? I wouldn't change you for a million dollars. Thank You..

Hey Chris,
How about 2 million? /ccboard/images/graemlins/laugh.gif We missed you so we had to help you ole buddy. You would do the same, it's just a great group of people helping each other. Heide must have awfully big shoulders, and you should be proud. Of course that goes without saying.

Remember, Chris, there's more of us out here than you might know. I've been here for you and your amazing woman and child every step of the way, and I'll continue to be here for you if you guys need me.

Welcome back.

Chris, Heide, and Christ, Prayers and moral support is all I had to offer, and if it was of help, I'm happy. I know that if I ever need any sort of repayment, I can indeed count on you and yours. I pray that God continues to bless you, and your family.

My prayers have been long for you and Troy to get through these rough times with these horrible events. My heart aches to see what and why these tragic things happen to good people. God, only knows. The sad thing is that I see people who intentionally try to crush the life out of themselves as others like us are trying to hang on.

Nothing but Love, my dear and close friends,

I want also to remember redwinebluebird, for his yr. long battle with Cancer and tell him if he's still out there. I pray for you also. I don't know where you got your strength but you can lean on me.

Your friend,

C.C.~~ /ccboard/images/graemlins/frown.gif I'm hoping you beat it.

05-27-2003, 05:54 AM
I think Ken my be a little happy about not playing right now. He gets up a bit too early to be staying out that late. One problem, now that Ken will be getting a few more hours rest everyone else better watch out. /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

It is great to see you back on the board and our prayers are still with you and your family.

Hey Chris,

It's awesome to see you back! I've been here since December and have barely had a chance to get to know you, now that your health is back I look forward to doing this. I would like to thank YOU for showing the heart, strength, and courage of an army and for not giving up. So, when will you begin shooting pool again?

Hi Snipershot,

I hope by next mth. I'm still too weak. I went from 179lbs-137lbs. My goal is to maintain a average weight. I have some other things going on but time is the cure, so I'm told. I have complete trust in this and hopefully. I'll be able to get to the table where I belong once more.

Thanks for asking,
