    Sorry man....I havent had the honor of exchanging word with you much through the years, but we have shared the same home for all of it.

    I think you can see by the love and support in all of our messages, that we arent ready to let you go yet. We have unfinished business, we do. We are all going to watch as this team that somehow has brought strangers together, and turned us all into friends, wins a Championship that we will all remember.

    We are with you, in thought and prayer.

Good news... bad news... better than no news. Please keep us informed somehow. We're all with you.

    I hope things go as well for you as is possible and you are able to enjoy time with your family to close out your time here.

    Talk with you when we all get to that great locker room in the sky.

    Keep your head up. You'd be surprised how much a positive attitude has to do with recovery. Who cares what the doctors say? They are wrong all the time. Keep it in your mind that this certainly will NOT be your last post and keep fighting.

    I don't know you very well at all but I've seen your posts and you've been a great contributor to this site.

    Jetssuck, I am truly sorry to hear this. Reading your post brought me back to the moment 11 years ago I was told that I had cancer. I can say to you that the grace, and dignity, and thankfullness you have for the life you've lived is an inspiration for us all. Thank you for giving that gift. Godspeed and best of luck with your surgery.

    This "home" is going to have an empty space missing a very great and valued friend. Your room and shoes cannot ever be replaced in our hearts JS. My heart and prayers go out to you and your family, and just know that for us who have had the privilege of sharing in your posts and your superb contribution to this site, we are deeply saddened and hurting.

    I thank you and want you to know as I am certain all of us feel we are better people for having you in our lives. I applaud the gusto you have lived your life with. If, or when, you move on, we shall celebrate you as one who lived life well. And we shall be rejoined in gladness when it is our turn to join you in the mansion God has awaiting you in Heaven. And as for watching the Dolphins, your going to have one heck of a seat, enjoy. See you upstairs my friend.

    Wow, this is a shock.

    I've known you on the boards for 12 years now.

    God forbid, if I ever found myself in this type of dire circumstance, I hope I could carry myself with the dignity shown in the first post.

    Hang in there and don't give up!

    JS, I am truly sorry to hear about your discovery and prognosis re; your cancer. You've been someone I've felt a strong connection with on Thephins as your principles and mine seem to run so closely together. In fact, I can't remember how many thanks we've traded over the few years I've been here. You were also one of the first to welcome me and friend me on this board. My thoughts and prayers are with you brother. I hope you fight hard, and please keep us all posted on your progress. Prove 'em wrong JS, and live long, and live strong!

    All the best,

    G

    Something like this transcends trivial things like what football team you root for. A very good friend of mine was given a 1 in 10 chance of surviving pancreatic cancer. He said to the doctor, "Well, someone has to be the '1' out of the 10, so why not me?" That was 5 years ago and he has since run two marathons. He remains cancer free.

    I can tell you that this Jets fan will pray for you. Don't give up no matter how dire the outlook is. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Bleh that is terrible news. My wife just lost an uncle to cancer as well, such a nasty disease. Glad to hear you still have a good outlook, and you never know, it is possible the doctors are wrong on the timeline, wouldn't be the first time!

    Hang in there and get the most of everything you have left dude. Prayers that it turns out ok.

    You are in my thoughts JS. You have a remarkable attitude about this. I do not know if I could be this strong in the face of the unimaginable. Spend this time with your family and friends. Make the most of it.

    You have made your mark in this world. Best of luck.

    JS, some of us have known you longer than others. You and I go way back to the DD boards together. Kind of ironic that you finally found a message board that will let you stay, and you end up leaving us. I know you have been fighting this thing for awhile, all the while helping out your fellow phins fans and giving the Jets hell. It has truly been an honor to get to know you over the course of the last decade or so. I am also proud to have contributed somewhat by creating your avatar that is an iconic one.

    I think you have my numbers, if not, I will get them to you again. I am planning on doing something special for you both here, and at the other place.

    Much Love from your fellow Desperado of Filth and Tent of Hater.
