Words fail me, as I see one of my great friends fade away.
It hurts like you can't imagine.
I know Andy has days left, maybe less, no one knows.
I went over there today, and just returned.
I helped Cathy get things organized and tried to make sense of some of the parts laying around, and tried to get all the engine stuff together.
As I sat and held his hand, I talked to him, thanking him for everything he has ever done for me, and thanked him for his friendship.
I'm still hanging in there with the can-do attitude, in a distant hope that I can get that car on the ground.
Andy has a few moments of lucidity, and knows the gravity of the situation.
"Thank you. You guys are awesome".
I helped Cathy organize some parts, and she is taking parts to the shop for us. We will have a shortblock done, with a pan by Saturday.
I will still be in attendance for the build, barring the worst situation.
If failure should be the option, so be it.
If you choose to come and help, awesome. If you do not, I understand.
You all mean a lot to him, and I know he loved you all like a family, and considers you all as such.
Thank you to all have donated, prayed, and answered his posts, and requests.
Just so you know- I told him he had to hang around thru the weekend.
