Many things are not always equal.

Unfortunately, a brother in law was fully vaccinated, and while in the hospital contracted Wuhan/CCP/Covid and died.

Fortunately or not, we both (one at a time) were infected with something that fit the description and symptoms and except that I now have a perpetual
cough, there were no lasting effects.  I am careful where I cough.

This is good for us because with both have issues that make the vaccines very problematic.  This is something that requires due diligence.

I never had the pleasure of meeting him but was immensely excited to get to sit and talk with him one of these days. A true legend amongst the GMC
folks, I haven't met anyone that didn't bring him up on conversation almost immediately as soon as the GMC topic popped up.

Feels like I and many others have truly missed a bright light in our lives by never having had the pleasure of meeting him.

There are MANY GMC personalities that we all know through this web
presence. Totally difficult to explain to anyone outside of our community.
I tried to explain it to my son and he had no clue. Not sure if I know why
either. But I accept it for what it is. A tight knit family. Just not
related by blood but by a machine. Alex was one of us. We all miss him like
a brother.
