    Bill, We all live in rooms of experience that some may never enter. I have been in three of those rooms with the big "C" on the door. I have left each one and closed the door behind me. Stay positive and use all the tools in your toolbox to lean into this. Best Hessel

    Bill, fight on, you are one of the few people who have given freely your words of wisdom and your wit keeps us enthralled.
    Time still to finish the Aerokits Fireboat and your JOFFRE tug, which you seem to have almost been ready for sea trials.
    And I count myself fortunate to have actually met you.
    Don't give up shipmate, you are an inspiration to many of us.
    Cheers and best wishes Colin.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    I said to my wife regarding the hundred and thousands of models I have built:

    If there is an afterlife, throw a couple of kits into my grave and I will continue building. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    Bill, so sorry to hear the sad news. I am not a very wordy guy so I just want to echo the words and thoughts that have already been expressed.

    Hi Bill,
    I am sorry to hear your news. But as others have said the doctors are not always right about these things. My late father in law was told he only had a few months to live but he decided to learn Tia Chi and lived another 30 years.
    Cheers,
    Stephen.

    Bill, I turned 80 last month and my wife is right behind me. I don't have enough fingers and toes to count the surgeries I have had. I am very sorry to hear you diagnosis. As we go on there is less and less we can do, kind of like our limits are shaped like going down a funnel. You seem to have a sense of humor which helps distract some of the difficulties you and all of us will have to face.

    All I can say is try to hang in there as best you can, even if it is perusing these interesting discussions on model boats.

    I just looked at your "harbor" and you have an impressive fleet.

    Take care, and I do hope that you will get some better news along the way.

    Sincerely,
    Lew

    This branch of my life in a Senior community, I have.become too familiar with hearing a siren, and wondering if is an ambulance for one of us, or just a Sheriff on a chase. If is coming for one of us, we can only hope for a safe return.

    I canโ€™t offer advice, as every situation is different. I do hope to spend time with my grandsons, so one may wish to help me with my projects.โ€™ But I have found out here that you donโ€™t have to pretend you are happy, as it is okay to have a crummy day.

    Wishing you strength in the days ahead.
    So many ships . . . and so little time . . .

    Bill, I really donโ€™t know what to say. Along with the others here I truly hope and pray the diagnosis is wrong. Please, take care of yourself, get rest, and if you feel like it give us a holler here. One of the other posters regards this forum as a familyโ€ฆ.heโ€™s right, and weโ€™re pulling for you.

    Sirโ€ฆ. May you, family and friends stay strong.
    I watched a good buddy of over 42 years succumb to the big โ€œ C โ€œ. He stayed true to himself all the way. Grumpy, miserable, cantankerous and one of the most stubborn mules Iโ€™ve ever met.

    He did tell me about his legacy heโ€™s leaving behind. The positive influence to nephews, nieces, family and friends.
    I couldnโ€™t help but admire his thinking
    Sir, think of the people youโ€™ve influenced in your life. More than you knowโ€ฆ.
    Fight it.
    Donโ€™t get stressed, CAUSE IT !
