Some of you here have been following the story of my friend Derek, who is going through colon cancer and has decided to stop chemotherapy, and have been sending your prayers and thoughts his way. I thought you might like to read about the "living wake" that his wife arranged earlier this month. I wasn't able to go but by all accounts it was a wonderful event.

He seems a remarkable man, with an amazing wife.
