A few months ago I found out that my best friend was finally returning home, after spending 15 years away from each other (I went to England, Earl went to US and Non went to BKK) we were finally going to all be living on the same wonderful island that we all grew up in. However the bastard that my friend is he came home and told us that he had cancer. A few days after he found out that it was stage 4 and it had spread into other areas of his body. I became so angry at everything, at him, at myself and at the world overall. I lost another bestfriend a few years back and that experienced had traumatized me so much that I started having nightmares everynight for 6 months straight and only ended the day my eldest daughter was born. All the memories of that time came flooding in. I became selfish, I wasnt ready to let him go and the worst part was seeing how hard the news hit his parents. I didnt know what was going to happen, in my heart I wanted so much for him to live. Non and I tried our hardest to put on a mask to cover our fear, however we knew that he knows how much we were worrying about him. After finding out he was stage 4 the news just continued to get worst, he had to go to BKK for his chemo. Now not only is he ill but I wouldnt even be able to visit him regularly. After a couple of sessions he returned to Phuket with his gf and called us to go have dinner at his house. I remembered that day fondly. Finally however there was good news, yesterday I found out not from him but from Non (that bastard was waiting to tell us all personally) that he was free of cancer. I was in tears before I knew it and it felt as if a building was lifted of my back.
All I really wanted to say in this long ass message is that thank you. Thank you for surviving, thank you for never giving up, thank for being the godfather of my children, thank you for giving me a second family and thank you for being my friend. Words can not desribe how much I love you bro. Thank you so much for being able to overcome everything that is thrown in your path. I couldnt be more proud of you. #brotherfromanothermother#friendsforever#nothingcanevercomebetweenus#fuckcancer
