Looks like you already got the message, but i'll "fifth" the motion not to. I'm sure it would be intended as a gsture of love and support and protection on your part, but ...
I would feel very much diminished in that situation - like i was not enough of a "man" in your eyes to do what should be done. And like you were taking everything out of his hands.
But bless you for wanting to!
"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself... And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second's encounter with God and with eternity." - Paulo Coelho
