Glads thats over 2 days out of bed the whole off Xmas and New Year new meds taking a bit of gettin used to and a Trapped Nerve which was worse than my RA, I think I mentioned Mark is gettin married on the 15th June to Emma and out of the blue last night he asked me if i would be his Best Man I was speechless all i could say was why me his best friend was the best man from the beggining Fran was gobsmacked or she acted if she knew nothing about it. just watching him go down the aisle would have made me so proud of him theres me just hoping my health keeps getting better, Has anyone else out there heard of something similar I told him i would need a bit of time he looked a bit dissapointed, Would people think he was doing this out of symphathy.MATT

Hello absolutely lovely and no..of course he isn't asking you out of sound like a very close loving family and you must feel great that he sees you as his best friend...what a wonderful thing...enjoy and feel proud. Maryx

Hi Matt, congratulations, our son had his dad as best man, not out of sympathy, but out of love and respect. Go on, you know you want to.

Not from Sympathy but Love of his father. Please accept tonight and with a happy joyous heart. I think this is a great honour to you Matt. xxx

Hi Matt, a very good friend of ours was asked by his son to be his best man. I think that it is a real honour for your son to ask you and you should be proud that you and Fran have brought up your son to be such a loving and amazing young man. Clemmie

You must be so proud that you son thinks so much of you, it obviously means the world to him to have you as his best man, say yes!!

That's wonderful! I don't think it's out of sympathy simply because of the way you've spoken of your relationship with him before - he's chosen the one person who really is his best man. I know I don't know him, but I would lay bets that you're his hero, and there's no one better to be by his side.

Hi Matt, so glad your feeling a little better. Please don't over-think this. My guess is that your recent health scares have made Mark realise how very precious you are to him. I'm sure his request is for his benefit. Please accept. I sense you're worried you might not be able to fulfil the best man duties as well as a robust young whippersnapper but the people that matter know the score and will support and applaud you all the way. Anyone who doesn't isn't someone that matters. xx
