|After retiring in 2004 my wife and I moved to small ranch in very rural south-central Montana. I started a small Pastoral Counseling office and became a hospital Chaplain in Billings. Both of these ministries have been a great blessing. In 2013 I became a Reserve Deputy Sheriff for our county. About 10 months after becoming a part-time Deputy, I was diagnosed with Lung Cancer. This same lung cancer killed both my mother and my only sibling–its hard to outrun your own DNA. In August 2014, in spite of surgery, chemo and radiation, the cancer had progressed and I was made stage IV. I have been on oral chemo pills everyday since then. I still mange to keep up with being a Hospital Chaplain, a rancher and part-time deputy Sheriff, but at a much decreased level of activity and have just now applied for disability.
I have done what I can in preparing my wife to be on her own and am so very thankful to the Lord for the time he has granted me thus far. While there is a fair amount of suffering, His mercy and Grace have been overwhelming. I am also so thankful to my adult children, sons-in-laws and grandkids who help out with stuff.
FWIW, my email inexplicitly occasionally bounces things back. Just try again if this happens.
