    apologies if posted before but I have just read this in the news today. 24 year old deaf quadriplegic wrote his last letter below.



    By: David Rose
    Posted: Monday, October 8 2012

    today I found out i have pneumonia.

    it not the nice kind either, where you cough for few days then go home and have ice cream.

    it the bad kind where you probably donot go home.

    it kick ass on able bodied people who go gym and can lift cars! so i do not know what going happen to me, i have never been to a gym and have been in 2 comas. although second one was very nice because i had silly dreams, mostly about my best friend kate.

    but in my life i have 3 friends have severe cp like me and got this kind pneumonia. they went to hospital because they have it and never came home. first was girl name tabitha we only 10 year old she was same class as me in special school. that was hard because i did not understand why she never came back i was too young and growing up deaf it hard for teachers explain things like that. i did not understand what happen to her until a few years later.

    when i 17 have friend name john in my rec group. he had bad cough one day and they took him to hospital. i never saw him again. he used to run his motor chair into me and we both laugh. no one do that since john.

    Last was a nice lady name ellen few years ago. she was older than me about 35 and live in place i live and had bad cough one day so they take her to hospital. i miss ellen, she had a nice smile.

    so i am write this today and ask nichole that if everything be fine in a week then trash this and i will write a funny new post with lot of boob jokes in it. but if i not be around in a week then publish this. so if you read this now it because i am not around anymore so there are people i want to thank and few things want to say.

    first of all want to ask if there is sound in heaven. i guess there is but not sure if i want it! here on earth i been happy to be deaf and nobody seem to be very good at describe what is sound, so i have not miss it. but i guess if that part of the deal then i have to take what i get! say a message for me and maybe i will hear it! or maybe angels know asl i bet they do they are pretty smart lol

    i have message for a few other people now.

    mom i love you. best mom ever! nichole you know i love you. best sister ever! thank both you for put your lives on hold so many times for me.

    nichole please be happy. you will not find it in a guy or in alcohol. you find it in yourself and need learn love yourself again. you can do that without my help now. what happen to you is old news and it time for fresh new life! please do what you been wanting do for long time. you know what is that! i will be watching and make sure you do it and be happy!

    i have some good friends name robbie kenny lucinda david (another one haha!) geri bruce maxwell karen chris thomas drew william rose and lot more. you all are awesome people and make me smile. kenny i hope someday you get to see a pretty face. i want you have all my taylor swift music on the dvd and listen to her. i already watch it hundred times so maybe it need someone hear it! robbie can have taylor posters. someone tell him it not really her it just a picture of her. silly robbie.

    Jeez, we could all take something from this guy's attitude, I know I certainly could. Humour, emotion and just bloody brave. I feel a bit humble now.

    Makes you feel kind of small when you read these kinds of things.

    Reading that on the train has got me a bit choked up. Sad but great letter.

    Incredible, evokes both sadness and almost a warmth that someone could write so lovingly about his World, and his friends, that the letter could reach out & affect so many others.
