"I refuse to be defined by, or limited by any illness. I will continue to ride horses, scuba dive, skydive, hunt, fish and all other things I love to do. I am not leaving this world until my Savior is ready for me to and I believe at that point nothing can keep me here one second longer and nothing can take me one second sooner. So I will live my life to the fullest and the rest is in God's hands." - David
