I hate Cancer. Our friend Billy Houckham is not doing well with his battle. His niece was kind enough to write me and let me know that the cancer has paralized him and he is unable to leave the bed. Hospice is now taking care of him. Please, pray for our friend. He has fought so very hard and I know he misses being outside with his camera.

    I have let the family know that we are praying for him and I think they found comfort in that. Billy has been a dear friend to me since I signed on to JPG in 2008. Billy has written a few stories about his battle. I encourage you to visit his page and let his family know that you are thinking of him. Check out his beautiful images and you can see that he loves life and living very much. We just lost Glenn last year after his tough battle with brain cancer. Many of you are fighting cancer now. Many of you have fought this battle and won. You are my heros.
