There's a moment in time, when you get news that you really didn't expect....and it startles you like a thunderstorm at midnight. This past week ushered in one of those times. My dad, Dick Neiderhiser, received the diagnosis that he has a very aggressive cancer throughout his body. So my brothers and I are gathered round to talk and be here for support...simply, to be here for him wherever this journey takes him. We know what a great writer and philosopher he is, so Brian, James & John and I thought this might a good avenue for him to share his story, his thoughts, and on the flip side it would be a good avenue for my Dad's friends and family to write to him, share their thoughts and words of encouragement. But this is Dad's story, so I'll let him tell it...Love to all, Cindy (Neiderhiser) Klaus.
