Nichols told AP he'd hoped to stick around a little longer, but the cancer has other ideas, and he has accepted his fate with dignity. He plans to be buried in the church yard-a stone's soft toss from the new clinic. "It's the journey that's counted for me," Nichols told AP. "Sure I'll miss being able to do all those things I'd planned to do, but, gosh, this was so rewarding."
