My Julie

By NDODS    
Firstly, may I take this opportunity to say a great big THANK YOU to all those of you who left such caring words for me to cry and ponder over after yesterdays upload. I was really happy knowing that my now 'extended family' were there for me when I needed them the most. I showed Julie my upload, and she instantly welled up, and called me a 'plonker' wrapped her arms around my frail frame, and said the words that I wanted to hear so very much "I love you so very much, and we are in this together, and furthermore I have no intentions of going anywhere without you". Julie went on to read your comments, and again her eyes filled up with tears.

Secondly a certain member "who shall remain nameless'" asked if I could upload an photography of Julie. This photograph was taken during a French getaway just a week before I suffered my second Brain Haemorrhage, so in many ways this image means so very, very much to both of us.

Hope you all have a great day

Regards Nathan

What i am about to say will not make any sense to anyone else.But knowing Nathan and Julie and respecting a great man,the following applies."You can't break me i'm a Jellyfish"

Look after him Plonky.

Bit slow my end image wise.
