I actually hardly know this man. I had a random meeting of him about a month ago in the parking lot at Shop Rite in West Deptford. His wife had gone into the store and I was putting my groceries in the car and he had parked next to me. He made a funny comment, something to the effect “ I wasn’t going to run over you.” We then began talking and had about a 15 minute conversation. He told me that he had terminal cancer and did not know how much longer he was going to live. He told me about his farming interests, etc. I happened to be a nurse so had some knowledge of his condition.
He just seemed like a nice all around guy that enjoyed life, even though I do not know him. I never forgot that conversation.
