First, I want to say thank you to everyone who called, texted, wrote, posted, or sent me private messages about Dicca. It was very touching to me and my wife, Stephanie.
Second, many of you asked what you could do. For me and my wife, your thoughts, prayers, and kind words are sufficient. But, I would say to each of you
FOCUS on the MAJOR
IGNORE the minor
I attach a clip of Jimmy Valvano's Speech at the ESPY Awards (he died shortly afterwards from cancer). Take the time each day to: reflect, laugh, and cry. Never forget to tell and show the ones you love that you love them. Live each day as though it were your last - it just might be. Life is not a dress rehearsal.

One thing that has helped me with the laughing side of the equation is my new puppy from Ali and my Kitty, Freeridin Super Bowl Kitty (Kat), who was, of course born on Super Bowl Sunday.
Here is Kat helping me cover the flowers to protect them from a late snow storm

And here is Kat in her first snow - the next day

So live each day like it were your last. Reflect, laugh, and cry each day.
