Personal reasons



Although we do not celebrate Thanksgiving here, I none the less will be celebrating and giving thanks for what I am sure will be a life well lived @Jedon. Like many others I wish you peace in your new life and feel honoured that you continue pray for us. You are our beacon of hope and positivity and we should all think of your example more often.


I think you have taught us way more than we could teach you about humility.

Your journey has been an amazing testament of faith, courage, and tremendous resiliency battling tremendous odds that certainly did not favor you.

I am so glad you are finding peace where you are at.
I am glad that you get to farm and once again work with your hands.

It wasn’t long ago that your hands had pins in them so this progress is amazing.

You have inspired all of us more than You could ever know!

I wish you all the best for your life day by day. May your load be light, and may peace find You wherever You may go!
You deserve it !!!


Standing by monastery gate reading this all and smiling.
Best day ever … got a family visit and many nice wishes from online family too.
I think this make my parents my offline family :joy:
Can’t be more satisfied :heart:


:joy: you cracked me up with this.


Hey @Jedon Yessss, Soooo happy with your progress, your strength, and your sharing. Thank You again, for giving me more strength, it’s always hard to complain when you know or see someone else enduring. Please continue to share and be an example to us all.
May you continue to receive blessings, and may your pain lighten ever more.




Been awhile, sorry about that

Glad to hear things are lookin up and you’ve found your happy place. That’s very nice to read, happy for you man and hope life keeps lookin up

Anyways interested in seein an update as soon as you have one

Thanks for all the time you’ve contributed to this forum and the people involved in it, you’re all around the best person in this community hands down

All the best,


Happy Holidays to all!
I just got a message from Jedon the other day as he wished me a Merry Christmas. I wanted to let you all know he does not have phone access at the monastery as his phone is kept in holy father office and its forbidden.

He is only allowed to use it on the day of his monthly visit with his parents. So he sent me a quick message and thought I’d share as you all must be wondering as I have been.

He is doing fine…praying, guiding, busy farming and working in the library there.

Sadly he has informed me he will leave a letter at the holy father office in case he dies. The cancer tumor is not healing and still eating at him slowly.

He is at peace finally he said. Wished Rogues and all peace and happiness.



Thanks for the updates, @Bzzinator

I am thrilled to hear that @Jedon was in contact, although I wish there were some better news about the cancer — but I’m happy he’s feeling at peace.

Please pass along our love as always if you connect with him again while he’s visiting his parents. :heart:


A letter? that sounds very ominous. I only knew him a bit, but he was very kind to me. Thank you for sharing @Bzzinator.


Thanks for the update @Bzzinator. I never had the opportunity to get to know @Jedon like many of you, but feel fortunate to have read the inspiring words he has written here. Strength. Gratitude. Faith. Positivity. Perseverance. Truly an amazing human.


His last post was 29 days ago, so I’m hoping his monthly outing is imminent, if he’s well enough :pray::crossed_fingers:


Happy New Year @Jedon and may this year be so much better for you than last year.


I sure miss his presence here.
He is definitely one of a kind.
Thank you for the update.
I’m glad he has peace and hope for a miracle with his cancer.


@Jedon. He buddy just want to make sure we all wished you a happy new year. Hope to hear from you soon. Stay strong


Hi @Jedon

I am not sure why I haven’t posted on this thread yet. It could be an avoidance thing.

I’ve seen a fair few loved ones in the past year go to the hospital for serious things and it has been difficult thinking about such things.

Maybe it’s because I have a bit of difficulty reconciling your happy joyful nature with the content of this thread.

The fact is I enjoy your posts very much: you made me laugh a lot and my wish for you is that you will be back to laughing and making funny jokes 24/7 on this forum, pulling all the heroes you want and fighting solo wars by yourself…

Look forward to seeing your haircut shop buddy

I will pray for your recovery

God bless you
