Jan White

I have really enjoyed your tacklebox blog for the past few months - it seems that you have a lot of great friends. I've always judged the caliber of a friend as someone who could take it as well as they dish it out.

My wife's name is Michelle. We just celebrated our 6th anniversary. Michelle's mom's name is Jan. Jan has cancer. The cancer has spread to her liver and she starts chemotherapy on Monday morning here in Denver. Everyone that reads your blog - I don't care if they are Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Atheist, or whatever. I want them all to be thinking about Jan White on Monday morning when she starts this process. I'm sure that you can imagine how hard this is going to be for her and for my family. Call it prayer, call it meditation, call it active thought. I just ask you to ask them to keep her in their thoughts throughout the day - maybe even pass it on to someone they know.

We are firm believers in the power of positive thought.

Thanks - Rich, Michelle, and Lainey Marks


  1. Tontini, take some time out from your busy schedule of gay porn and eating and let's think good thoughts about Jan White for a couple seconds. Those websites will still be there tomorrow.

    Thanks everyone. Jan is my mother in law and she is a GREAT person. If I could take this from her and make it my own - I would. I don't really know what else to say but thank you. I hope to ride with you soon. Perhaps make a trip to the north west. Tell Johan to practice because I don't want my brakes to get too hot...
