Hi Brian, I just read your comment about waiting for the registry to call. I am going to light a thousand virtual candles for you my friend. If you ever need to reach out to someone please don't forget I am here just like everyone else. Speak to you soon! BTW I couldn't marry someone unless I saw their picture first. Just in case you look like someone from Green Acres!!! LOL

Hi Brian,
Thank you for the nice remarks. It is good to hear from you,but disturbing to read your comments about your health. I certainly hope and pray that you get a call soon from the registry. Those 'calls' unfortunately can take a while. All I can relate to is another fellow you might know...Norm Daly who was on dialysis for quite a while, and on a list. I'm happy to say that they called, and he has had the transplant. Doing so much better. Take Care.
