Default If you can...........

Jordan Terry was a warrior as most of you know, He become ill a year ago from a mole on his back,it was malignant melonoma,which is skin cancer,it spread very quickly,then we found out it was in his bones,but he kept fighting and he was so strong,he was the bravest person i know,he had chemotherapy,he went on a clinical trial,and he had radiotherapy on his body but it was getting worse,On monday 5th january he was very ill we took him into hospital and we found out he had 3 tumors on his brain,and unfortunatly he didnt last 24hours,he fell asllep on tuesday 6th january,he was not in any pain and he didn't struggle. Jordan was everything to me and im very proud of him.He will never be forgotten,he will remain in my heart untill we meet again.
I will never stop loving you jordan u was my rock,my brother,MY WORLD.love your lil sis xxxxxx
Sweetdreams My Soldier.xxxxxx


This is a message from Jordan Terry's sister, this guy i went to school with, in my year, about 150 of us, all boys school from 11-16. He was a friend, not really close but friends, hadn't seen him for a while now but knew he was unwell.

Well anyway, he was one of those kids at school who was hard as nails, lot of fights, getting in trouble and into capers, but he was a joker, and never a bully, always loud, and vibrant. The point being, i had a lot of respect for him at school and all there liked him. He would stick up for people.

Well as you can see, he died recently just a few days after his 23rd birthday. Its the first of my generation that i have known to die. So feel sad, not for me but it just makes you think upon your own life and how not to take it for granted.

It's his funeral tommorrow that i am attending and i just wanted to ask for prayers/thoughts for his family and his girlfriend who are obviously in a great deal of pain.

Thanks

Just to say his Funeral was heartbreaking.

The things his parents, sister and girlfriend all read out were painful but for of praise.

I'll just say that the Priest read out a message from the Doctor and Nurses at St Thomas's who helped to fight the cancer was beautiful and touching. all said how brave he was, and how he took it smiling, in good nature and that all the staff were deeply upset at the news.

Whatever way, he got a great send off, and i was pleased to raise a glass for him and attend the Funeral which really hit me.

And i was not even that close, i feel for his family, girlfriends and close friends.

The thing being the finality of it all really gets me, his gone and thats, thats. Its hard to contenplate sometimes.

Just makes me think of life and how lucky we are sometimes and that we should appreciate all we have. it has really made me ponder some things in life.

See it had got me down on things, so i cannot contenplate how the others are getting on, so just want to say i appreciate your prayers and support for them, even if it is only a small thought.

Thanks


Jon

Death is scarey...

It's inevitable too..

Even when saved and I fully believe in heaven(please God let me in)

I still feel a little afraid sometimes... Not really for myself but just the pain it causes to others..

I'll pray for this family and friends and for you Jon it's probably screwing with your mind a bit at this point.

God bless bro keep your chin up.

Man sorry for your loss....I lost a very close friend of mine in an atuomobile accident. He was only 19, sad part is, is that out of ALL the "close friends" he had, I seem to be the only one that has kept his memory alive. We didnt hang out that much when we were older, we played baseball together as kids, but when I lost him, wow its been over 6 years ago and Im tearing up here at work. Just your situation reminds me of what I went through/still going through, and you'll get through it man, please dont ever forget him. Sorry dont mean to ramble, its just your story struck a chord with me...anyways be strong and God bless.

Its one of those things that has affected me a little bit but i feel guilty about getting sad about it because there are others that are really greiving. I'm sad for them and im sad he had his life.

You know you look through his Facebook and pictures of a young man, and he was determined to fight this "b~@tard " that he called cancer.

I'm alright, it just makes you think.

He has some close friends as well who i know will make sure he isnt forgotten and ill regulalry spare a thought. Good thing is we are saving up for a cause for him as well so there is something being done in his name.

The good thing is that hopefully we can sort out some charity football matches, etc etc and get everyone together.

The thing i guess that hits hard, that the fella was strong and tough, vibrant and this thing sneaks up on you. Don't seem right.

But alas Rest In Peace Jordan Terry, and thanks everyone. Hixo i think its good to remember,ans that you still think of your friend.

Its a funny old life
