Dear Café,

as some remember a couple months ago I was talking about my father who had just been told he had lung cancer.. I'm afraid it has gotten even worse.( I found this out a couple weeks ago) sorry to my Magi friends that I havent told. but the lung cancer has spread and got bigger and they have now found a spot of cancer on his brain. he is no longer working because of it and we had to have an oxygen like machine put into the house.. I hope all goes well. thanks everyone.

Although Daniel ( Magical Odyssey ) has over 600 posts I doubt many fellow Café Members really know that much about him. He is a teen just going on 15 and I doubt you'll find anyone more enthusiastic about magic this side of the equator. My schedule has not permitted me ever attend one of his stage shows (and he has had several to date) but he has always gone out of his way to assist with mine. He has worked as backstage crew and roadie for me several times and has put many past crew of mine to shame. Theatre and the work involved in it are in his blood. His background includes a starring role in a play a few years ago that ran a summer at a local theatre.

He lives in a very small town but somehow manages to get out there to meet and befriend many of the local magicians throughout Ontario. It doesn't take Daniel long to become one of the gang.

Daniel... I'm sure all your fello Magi here in Ontario are rooting for you and praying for your Dad. Some of us have already gone through what you are going through now and the rest of us will some day. You didn't win this group of friends by being shy or afraid of a challenge so keep that in mind during these challenging times. Keep your chin up and stay strong my friend.

Best,

Tim

Hello Daniel,

Kendra and I send our prayers to you and your family, and encourage you to keep smiling and continue to put everything you have into the things which make you happy.

Tim has already mentioned many true qualities which you possess and with your kind of enthusiasm you can go anywhere, do anything and be whoever you want. During times of adversity take a moment to remember your strengths, I won’t make things any easier but it will bring you hope and keep you strong.

Live isn’t always fair and it certain isn’t easy, so we’ve got to make the best of every moment we have and give it our all.

Very Best Regards,

Ryan Joyce

Well he leaves tomorrow for kemo again.

I have another sad story,

There was an older man named Grant who was my neighbor who came to like every public show I had. He would sit next to the stage (closest person) and would allways say I'm gonna figure you out yet daniel.. I used to go to his house all the time and try out my new tricks with him and he loved it! He would allways ask my mom how I did it and she would say she didn't even know! unfortunately grant had a rought time in the last week and past away at 73. I went the visitation today and almost every single one of his family member knew me as the kid that would come over and fool grant. I broke down of course and had to leave. Im hoping on march break to dedicate a show to him. I'm off for a while now... his funeral is tomorrow.

It's always hard to lose a friend, Daniel. Remember what Grant taught you. God has special blessings in store for those who visit the old and infirm.
My prayers and best wishes for you and your Dad.
