Gods Blessings to you and your family. Celebrating the birth of our savior is truly a wonderful time of year if one truly holds a true understanding of what is given us. I’m a Montana person is the US, my family have ranched here since 1864 . We have followed your career in sports and admired you as you reached out and used your fame to help others . I do feel that it is important to heal your own soul so that you may fulfill an obligation to help others hurt by your actions heal through the love of Christ . Brother you can’t waste the talent that God gave you by not understanding the Plan !!! No , I’m in no way a religious zealot . I grew up helping farm and ranch and then moved on to the business career that I excelled in for 30 years . My wife Carrie lost our son to Blastic Lymphoma in 1995 at the age of three and ten months . In 1992 I fought testicular cancer while working full time and staying very active in volunteer activities . Carrie left me in 1998 as it was just too painful for me to continue to to look at life the same as I did before . I moved back to Montana in 1998 still with the same company , it was good to be back closer to family , but there continued to be something lost in my zest for life . Being that Charles Robert was born ill and not expected to make it , touch and go everyday and also not acknowledging he was mine until after birth ( we were separated when I found out that she was 6 months with Charlie ) . With all of this in mind , i did not tell anyone in my family as I did not want them to go through the pain that I was . We got back together for a short time , but soon separated . I miss my son so much , he made such a life changing impact on me in such a short life he lived . I have devoted my life to work and helping family and others . After 30 years of giving my all to my job , I was let go over the phone while on vacation and with my father at the hospital . My company knew that I was with my father at the doctor and they approved my time off ( I had six weeks vacation yet to use ) . Four months short of retirement at 55 years old . Being that I was terminated , they kept all my benefits including substantial stock and future payouts based on longevity …… I missed mentioning that they took over the company four years ago from the company that I worked for all my professional life . The Montana courts have ruled in favor of me claiming wrongful termination against my previous employer .
I’m working at getting my life back in order and dealing with MS . I invite you to come visit my families ranch in Livingston Montana to get a change of thought process
God Bless ….. We can only move forward and do the best we can my friend
