Jim,

I replied to your post on the Gold Nugget Shooting Forum and wanted to add that you were one of, if not the most influential person for keeping my interest in metal detecting so high. As a newbie a couple years back, your patients and kind words of encouragement and guidance really made me feel at home. It would have been real easy to blow off “another” new guy, but you didn’t, I am truly grateful and I will not forget it. Thank You.

You’re in our prayers and thinking of you ,

Dave

Hi Jim, I'm sorry to hear this news. Small cell/Oat cell and squamous are the real bad guy's. Squamous cell is largely do to smoking, it likes to set up in scar tissue. Large cell has been treated with great success. Keep your spirit's high and take any treatment they give you. The Cancer treatment center's of America are great to talk with and willing to help. Also, get second opinions.... Keeping a positive attitude will help a great deal. Did they mention anything about stripping the lymph nodes out ??? Losing the weight will make your heart work less and be stronger.

keep those spirits high, your in my prayers... looking to see you in the bush...

Jim it really sucks to hear that!! About five years ago my mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and it was a very rough time for my family and I. I'm happy to report she's been cancer free ever since.

You've got the right attitude and it sounds like your ready to take this head on and beat it. A strong head like yours will get you through the difficult time you and your family are about to face.

I wish you and your family the best and if there's anything you need just give me a hollar.

Take care my friend, I look forward to BS'ing and having your chicken wings around the campfire after all this is done.

Hi Jim,

I remember when Jim Kreigh and I first met you at the Tucson Gem show during the Main Show in the Community Center quite a few years ago. We three were looking at a gold display with photos from an old mine in Colorado and you and Jim had quite a discussion about the area. The more we talked we realized that we were all meteorite hunters so there was more lively discussion about Gold Basin and the other hunting areas. Jim was so pleased to have finally met you and we hoped to eventually meet up with you out in the field. I am so sorry to read about your illness. As you have read there are many hoping and praying you will somehow beat this.

Thinking of you, Twink Monrad

Jim when you feeling a little better. I'll stop by and show you the L I got the day,

my prayers are with you Jim, for better days and that elusive hunt for the rare space rocks.

Your friend
