Hello all,

Re:  Mr. Swayze

Like many of you, I was transfixed as I read Mr. Swayze's last message.  I'm
sorry James, if it seemed that we were in a word contest,
over-intellectualizing over the kind of suffering that is so real for
someone like yourself.  Our $10 dollar words, were not meant to trivialize.
But I agree that we cannot know your experience.  We can only attempt to
empathize to some small degree.  Your input to the debate was very useful.

At the same time, I do wonder what Mr. Swayze's perspective is on all this.
Making these arrangements on a public forum may well be uncomfortable for
him.  Perhaps he's open to our help and perhaps he's not.  How much would a
life insurance policy  cost/month vs. trying to purchase a cryonics contract
outright?  Is there work of some kind that Mr. Swayze could provide in
exchange for considerations offered by a cryonics organization?  There are
lots of questions here that require Mr. Swayze's feedback.  I suggest
someone from Alcor or CI offer to communicate directly with Mr. Swayze to
determine if and how the cryonics community might be of service.

Best regards,

Scott Badger
