This is such a sad time, and such an outstandingly brave thing that you are doing, to wish all your friends, (and I know you have many), a final farewell, before the inevitable happens.
May your passing be as peaceful and painless as possible. Time is now, not on any of our sides !
Like Rick I have known you from Benghazi days, I always remember you with that big smile on your face, as if it was welded there. This is how I will continue to remember you old friend.
