    I'm going to have to print these out and read them when I have time to just let the stories soak in.

    As a cancer survivor myself, this is very eye-opening.

    Wow. I've never met Jerry, but we have mutual friends. This story, and the way he goes about it, is amazing.

    It's a little dusty.
  5. wow...how do you hide tears at your desk? I look like a blithering idiot...then again, I always look like a blithering idiot...

    Jerry is tremendous and Gloria's audio makes you pretty emotional.

    Sweet Jesus, I didn't even do the audio. What a beautiful child.

    What do you mean by a little dusty? Not sure I follow. [I'm dense so that could be the problem]

    "it's getting dusty in here" is a common excuse when one tears up and doesn't want to admit one is crying.

    I want to go home and hug my 3-year-old right now. Read the first two stories. printed the others to read later and share with my wife.

    amazing writing. captures the seemingly limitless bravery and faith of the Strauss family.

    Don't know about you guys, but personally, I think the Seattle Times' web site is miserable. I can't believe this series has no prominent place online.
