Help from Startling Places

As many of you read in the last blog posted here, Keith died on January 22 of this year, three months after we learned of his stage 4, very advanced, bile duct cancer.  As July 22 looms ahead of me, arriving on the same day of the week (Sunday) as the day he died, I […]

Keith Goes Home

Dear Friends, I’m writing to inform you that Keith went to be with Jesus yesterday, Sunday January 22nd 2012, at 3:00 pm.  Keith’s last few weeks here on earth were peaceful.  He was visited by many friends and relatives whom he was always pleased to see.  Andrea was holding Keith, her beloved husband of 33 years, when he drew […]

The Worst of Times and the Best of Times

New Year 2012 My pitiful little self-centered mind is about half taken up with what my uncle called “the big C” (or malignant cancer) which is (though I have only seen evidence of it) pretty well eating away on my vital organs as you read this. When I say it is the “best of times,” […]

Christmas Eve

Keith has written several blogs recently.  Due to a week of confusion they are just now ready to post.  We apologize for the time lag. December 24, 2011 This morning our friend Trice took me to a meeting of a group of men.  These men have had such an enormous positive influence on my life […]

I Love You, Daddy

This post is really different for me to write.  It is about the process of making the transition from a life of faith in the God Jesus called, “Father,” to the end of that life in the process we call “dying”. As I am writing this draft, Andrea and I are now in the M.D. Anderson […]

Gratitude and Grief

After several days of medical procedures and tests we were told last Thursday (October 20th) by my Gastroenterologist that the internal blockage that has caused recent discomfort is the result of the bile duct being squeezed shut because of a tumor pressing against it.  The tumor is right next to my liver.  Because of its […]

Finding a New Personality? Or Uncovering the One That Got Buried?

I’m a Christian and am also newly in a recovery program.  But I’m confused about some of the terminology of the spiritual life that seems to me to be more similar to the faith I found before recovery than I had thought, but still different.  My question is:  In the 12-Step program I’m now in, […]

A Message from the Past

How do you deal with sad things like missed opportunities or things you regret in your past?  I have some incidents from twenty years ago that periodically come up in my dreams.  I wake up filled with sadness, but since we can’t undo what happened in the past, how do you learn to live with […]

What Does It Take to Begin?

Dear Keith, I don’t know what the matter with me is.  I have a good job and a caring family, but inside my head when I’m alone I seem to have some sort of secretive and self-defeating mental/emotional disease.  I find myself drinking and eating too much, and masturbating while looking at pornography.  And I’m […]

What Was it About Hank—That Changed Our Lives?

Saturday at Riverbend Church here in Austin, TX, a large number of people gathered to say a formal “Goodbye,” and “We love you, Hank!” to our dear remarkable, unpretentious friend, Francis Leo “Hank” McNamara. It was a strange mix: some 50 or 60 family members; many Austinites who had known Hank since grade school; at […]
