    Oh, you are making me cry. It is a sweetest story I've ever heard and you are the sweetest man. I wish I would find someone like you, such dedication. Love you, David. Hang in there. We will pray for you and your family. Take good care of her (know you will) and have a great, happy New Year :) Didn't know why you were gone a long time. Love ya, Toquyen

    "..We never planned the journey, it just… lead us, we happily followed, trusting our gut feeling and God..." we learn through our journeys that no matter what, life is always right. How courageous of you to welcome it!! Thank you dear for reminding me to say yes to life! Much love to you and yours!!

    Good God David, If there is any justice in this world or the next and though I certainly know you do not seek pity or praise, I pray that there is a window to forever that has happiness and peace in it. Those of us lucky enough to have had relatively insignificant things to complain about have to thank those like you for reminding us that, after all, it is a wonderful life and it is what we make of it. God Bless my friend...

    I don't know what to write. How dedicated you are and how lucky you are to have each other. This gave me the chills. It's beautiful. That's what it's all regrets. Hard to do......

    Dear David - I was today thinking of you and your wife. Your writing is a testament to love and I'm so happy for your in-between years. I hope the flame flickers for you both as time passes. I am struck by your bravery and hers. My own sister-in-law has traveled a similar road of pain and medications for many years and the toll is great. You are in my prayers. love, Kathy

    I did not know your wife had all these troubles, I knew something was wrong but never really knew what it was! I hope and pray thing will work out, maybe a new super med will come out that will help her! I know your heart David, you'll stay with her and keep your family whole! I admire you for this! We do miss your presence here on the Soup my friend! But I understand your situation is rough and you probably will not be able to get on, that is ok, we still think of you! You'll always be with us!

    David, it is clear you are a wonderful man. Many men would have fled early on. God bless your dear soul. And God Bless both you and your wife and the love you share. hugs, Catie :)
