Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do

Don't tell me how much you honor Sijo, if you don't respect his wishes.

ahere's what John Graden sent out:

 Joe Lewis Needs Support
Hi Everyone,
My master instructor Joe Lewis is in the fight of his life. On July 18th Joe Lewis had an operation to remove a brain tumor from his left temporal lobe. 


Upon returning from one month of worldwide business travel, he experienced blurred vision as well as other unusual symptoms. Through medical examination it was discovered that he had a small mass on the left temporal lobe in his head. This mass was successfully removed through surgery on Monday, July 18, 2011.  Our prayers are that the surgery was a life saving procedure.

He is expected to have a complete recovery but will go through a normal rehabilitation period. Those wishing to send get well cards to Mr. Lewis may address them to Joe Lewis, c/o The Nackord Karate System, P O Box 1506, Southeastern, PA 19399.

I am going to auction off my Joe Lewis memorabilia and give the funds to Joe. I'll post the ebay links later today. Please include him in your prayers.
 
 
 
Thank you.
 
Sincerely,
