Better to read the hearsay in your own words than in the words of another telling us you won't be around anymore.
I don't know what to say about your unfortunate ordeal and fortunate recovery so I'll just stick with the simple old heartfelt (no offense...) Gen-X standby:
"Jeez, dude. That really sucks. I'm glad you're not dead."
How fitting, this close to Halloween...
Welcome back...from the dead...
Stay put here. This poor world needs all the good guys we can get for the foreseeable future.
May the Lord God heal your heart and bring new goodness out of this for you.
Gods speed in your recovery. Glad to have you on this side if eternity for a little longer.
Love and kisses, big man.
Nothing could be as bad as the Leonard Cohen song. It's killing me! Okay, point taken, but having lived that one, I know you are exaggerating. Nice try. haha. Having said that, thank you for inspiring an evening of Cohen googling. The Tori Amos cover is down right haunting, by the way. Please take extra good care of yourself!!
I highly recommend the Lloyd Cole cover as well. Could Cohen be any more visceral?
That bad. Oy.
Knowing your way with words, I look forward to what you will say.
While it's a fitting topic this close to Halloween, I'm glad that you're still on this side of the veil to give us the feedback. Otherwise, I'd have to enlist Whoopi Goldberg's help just to talk to you, and that would be a drag.
Here's a hug, Gerard (in the manliest possible way). Glad to have you back.
We'd have missed you all to hell. No rush on that, y'know.
