Hi, David and Margaret. Here's a blast from the distant past. With great sorrow I read about the passing of Helen and wondered if there were any way I could send you a note of condolence. Google turned up this site and I see you're on a difficult enough journey of your own, though facing it with intelligence and heart, as I'd expect. But added to your stress is the pain of losing Helen. I am so sorry!

Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is the place to be. You know they'll help you through this. And clearly you have a huge supportive group sending love your way. Please count me as a member.

Dear David and Margaret,

Kirsten and I have been following all the recent events and keeping you in our thoughts and prayers.

We apologize for not having communicated sooner.

Bravo to David for speaking with the local reporter! Male breast cancer is something many men have never heard of. My 21 year old brother succumbed to it in 1969. Thank goodness cancer treatment has made astronomical advances since those primitive days!

We are thinking of you all!

Margaret and David,

Sending healing blessing to you both during this journey you are on together. David, wishes for a successful surgery, recovery and a smooth transition into remission. May you be blessed with many years beyond this health crisis blimp on your path. That silver stream trailer definitely doesn't have enough miles or been to too many rallies yet.

Would bring you down forever,
But you rode upon a steamer*
To the violence of the sun."

Let's share this glory hole!

David - I bet you are stoked about Edgar getting into the hall of fame! Now you gotta get better so you can go to another parade in Cooperstown. Love you bro!

Hello Dr. Engle and Margaret. I'm so happy to be included in the group that has access to this site. I am asked all the time if I know how David is doing, and now I will have the information to pass onto current and former colleagues. The David Engle I know is strong. I saw you kick plenty of ass here in the district, and this situation will be no different. Know that I am thinking of you and send healing thoughts your way.
Sending love to you both,
Carrie Ehrhardt

A timely message, too! 😀

David--our helicopter trip into the Selkirks comes to mind--up in the clouds with the sun, the snow, the rock and the ice--I'm ever contemplating a re-do. What do you think? OK, cancer, hip replacements, all the other crap we have going for us--nothing a little BC mountain air can't do to lighten the spirit, right? Hold that thought! We can go hang out with those long-horned mountain goats!

"And then the pig'll turn around and there'll be this pony."
"Oh no, man, kangaroo."
"And they eat it when they get it home."
"If it's still alive."

We've traveled this road together for a long time, my friend. And we've miles to go before we sleep. Also, you have to write those memoirs.

Reminder: Margaret is in charge. Margaret.Is.In.Charge.

See you soon.
