This is Roy.

This is Roy's Map.


Battle of the Bulge:

VE Day:

Did I tell you? Is it not the coolest?

Roy has melanoma, and he has decided to forgo the chemo/radiation in favor of letting the cancer take its course. It's in his lymph nodes already, so he doesn't have a whole lot of time left. I'm not sure if we'll see him again, but I sure hope so. He's a sweetheart. He and I talked about death and hospice and morphine as Brian and his mother loaded up the car. Roy is the first person I have ever met who seems completely at ease with the notion that he is going to die, and soon. Kind of remarkable.
