Message to my Wife

I just wanted to take a few moments to talk about my wonderful wife Peggy. Cancer has really effected her life over the years and I am sure her first thought could have been here we go again or why me, but I have to tell you I am the luckiest man alive to have her in my life. She didn't say anything like that, she was so understanding and wanted to do everything she could to reassure me and for that I am so grateful and thankful that God brought her in my life. This October we will be married 17 years and we used to kid around and say "17 loooong years", but know I totally realize that its really "17 short years" and appreciate every second I have with her and my son. She has been my rock for so many years and I love her with all my heart and want everyone to know how precious she is to me and also want her to know that this is only a short journey in our lives together and by faith God will guide us through and we will be stronger as a result. I ask her not to worry because I will be fine, especially because she is by my side and look forward to a long wonderful life together.

With Love,
Darren

Darren,
I understand the cruelty of cancer, having lost many family members to various forms of it. But I also understand that prostate cancer is very treatable. Above that, we are praying for a miraculous healing from our Lord Jesus Christ through the stripes placed on him at Calvary. I'm asking God to heal you thoroughly, completely, speedily so that your testimony will be heard around the world. If He chooses to heal you through medical means, then so be. That will be alright as well. Know that my family loves you. Darlene (and Chuck) Miller
