Greetings Everyone,

I hope you are having a wonderful day, week, month, year, life!

I was injured August 30, 1986. I am a Quad C 6-7. So I do have a little bit of experience with this thing called "Paralysis." It kicked my butt the first couple years, but then one day while praying to God for help, He showed me how to handle some of the things that were new to me; like... "pain, emotions (i.e., sympathy, introvertness due to my paralysis, etc.) I cannot say that I am completely used to being a quadriplegic or wish I didn't have to use a wheelchair and could walk. However, life is on an even keel now, and I look forward each day to see what it holds for me.

I use "Dragon Dictate" by Nuance, so I sincerely hope that what I am speaking is being presented to you without too many mistakes, otherwise I could be in trouble.

I attribute the peace and joy that I have every day to the great relationship I have with God (Jesus Christ) my best friend, and also with my other almost as best friend my wife of going on a wonderful "42" years of marriage!

I was 40 years old when I had my accident. I was a nightclub singer, and met a guy named Richie who is getting me into Las Vegas. His best friend was Buddy Hackett's son, who by the way sounds just like his dad. I was going to do the circuit, Las Vegas, Reno, Nevada, so now I sing in church with the worship team. Oh how life changes when things happen like accidents. I will write more later, but it's prayer night at the church so I'm off to pray. God bless you all, your buddy, Gib
