So...

I know that I have in the past said at many points that the skin that I was working on at that time would likely be my last, however though it has as of yet not really happened. I suppose my continual designing was really a need to fulfill some creative need within me.

I have begun working on another skin, and I hope to finish it however, I must also identify that over the years I have been struggling with Prostate cancer and have kept this quite private. However, things have progressed a bit more and I want to share with you that sooner or later this will eventually catch me and I will no longer be able to publish.

To those that are my dear friends: I am glad to have known you and will continue to think of you and your families until the last moment I have.

To those that I have not seen eye to eye: I am sorry if I ever offended you. I truly have no ill-will to you know and I cannot excuse my past offenses, I only hope that you can forgive my ignorance.

To Mr. Jones (who had ignored me long ago): The above statement and more is due to you. I truly am sorry sir.

To others that have enjoyed my skins through the many years that I have done this: I hope that you find some pleasure in my attempt at being a designer. If only for a moment in time you have made my day.

Thank You all.

jax,
Sorry to hear of your problem. Wish you the best! Ain`t it funny how health issues put things in their proper perspective? When I went thru kidney failure, dialysis and a renal transplant 15 years ago I realized that the only thing in life that really matters are family and friends. Hope you are blessed with these as I have been!

And your latest skin preview looks super! Certainly looks like a candidate for your best yet.

Keep us posted and hang TUFF!

Well, today's test came out fairly positive a lower white blood cell count is good. I will continue to try and thank you...Yes, my perspectives have changed alot since starting on this road to try to recover. I am doing well and hope to continue to for awhile yet.

Friends and Family are very important...Indeed.

That means you gotta make a prostate skin. (someone had to say it.)
