"A great man is leaving my life today. He fought cancer and nearly won but sometimes your not supposed to win. It's not about the battle but the destination. It was his time and he lived a long life. Even though it was terminal, it seemed so sudden. If ever a man was to make it to happiness it would've been woody. Cancer and all, you couldn't beat his outlook on life.
      Rest in peace Wood, you will never be forgotten..."
