At 48,being somewhat an atheist (Darwinist) I feel in love,20 years my junior I gave her all I had,love makes you do crazy things especially if your holding your last card, love made me rethink my exit plan.4 years later I reluctantly refused and fought with my Doctors,Yet she gave me a Kidney and 1.7 years later I'm alive,a new life and there is a God after all..
