for Alexander & His Mum

I received this letter from my friend Alexander yesterday at 2:40PM and have placed it here with his blessing:

Greetings Family & Friends,

I hope you are all well.

I am writing to you today because I need to ask you all a favor. My beautiful mother Isabel Richter is fighting for her life against Large Cell Lymphoma Cancer in Maine at the York Hospital, and as of 2:00pm EST they have begun to administer a very hardcore, industrial strength dosage of chemotherapy. Please send her some prayers, positive vibes, or whatever you feel is appropriate to help her out in this very difficult time. For those that know my mum she is a fighter, and even in her weak condition she is determined to try to beat this cancer. So please, if you have a chance close your eyes for one moment and send some good love to her. She is a wonderful person & I hope that the Lord does not decide to call her just yet. And maybe if you all send some energy she might be able to stick it out a bit longer and try to enjoy the remainder of her life here on earth.

I thank you all for taking the time to read this & appreciate the love & prayers that many of you have already sent and will be sending.

Many thanks,


PS- Please let your loved ones know how you feel about them. Family is so fragile and you never know when life will throw you & them into the challenge of your life.

If you are interested. Here is a link to some photo’s of my mother and her battle with cancer.

There are a million reasons I love the internet. One of them, if not the best reason to love the internet, are the notes and stories other people that love the internet sometimes send my way… Receiving these notes and stories is absolutely wonderful, in fact, it downright keeps my world spinning.
