John,
 I am so sorry to read this. Cancer is a relentless foe. I truly hope you are not alone in this fight and even though you indicate the outcome is inevitable, I wish you the strength to not give in. No matter the course it follows I wish for you the smoothest ride that can be managed.
 Having spent time with many people who knew the end was coming soon, I can say it is a very rare person indeed who turns their thoughts and concerns to others rather than themselves. The fact that you chose to recognize Jeff and other forum members speaks volumes about your character in addition to your stoic outlook toward the road you now face.
 I wish you God Speed as you travel the road in front of you. I can sense that your family and community will be suffering a great loss if/when that time comes.
 Be at Peace,
Tom

This is sad news.  While acknowledgement might not be necessary nor required, I must acknowledge that so many times I have noticed you quietly reading topics and knew that "woodyone" was there and I smiled.

My wish is for your peace and courage along this journey.  MM

I want you to know that we are thinking and praying for you.  You have courage, strength, and dignity.  We are here for you.
YellowHammerisms:

Take steps to save steps.

If it wont roll, its not a log; its still a piece of tree.  Sawmills cut logs, not pieces of trees.

John, you sound like a courageous man who is at peace. Having battled cancer, I have learned that courage and peace, along with family and faith, are the pillars of strength which make it possible to face the journey. Though I know you not, I have read your posts and appreciate your contributions. I wish you well and look forward to meeting you on the other side. Charles
