...but, unfortunately, "was" is the operative word.
Michael J. Castlebury passed away on Wednesday, September the 24th, from complications related to Stage IV Melanoma. He was diagnosed with the condition, which manifested in his shoulder, while he and I were on a business trip to New Orleans together in June.
The aggressive chemotherapy proved too much for his relatively young (62) body.
Between that and the stresses of getting my Las Vegas trip together, I have little heart to write until I return next week.
See you all then.
