hi clayton. i'd like to second bishop robinson. in my own case it was something he said that taught me the way to keep going in the face of my own fear. it was during the brief time i was deciding rather to die or transition. he said, "courage is but fear, having said it's prayers." with that i learned that as terrified as i was, if i prayed i could turn my terror into courage. may God continue to bless him and to bless us with him. much love and hope, pj
