            I'm so very sorry. Seeing your friend's picture in mommo's avatar brought tears to my eyes -- such a wonderful smile.

                      My boss lost his mentor (Stan Korsmeyer) that way... one of the most brilliant cancer biologists who was nominated for the Nobel prize multiple times... non-small cell lung carcinoma... never smoked a cigarrete in his life. He, along with, the other 10 million affected by this beast, are an inspiration to all of us.
                      Dadmo, Alreadybald mentioned to me that at the Philly Challenge there will be a Jumbotron showing a tribute with pictures of the departed. I don't know whether you and Bev's family would be up for that, but you can ask Joe or me for the details. I know I have them stashed somewhere.

                        Lost My Dad Today

                        I ask your pardon in advance if otherwise, but since the thread was about losing loved ones I thought it would be appropriate to post this here. In a cruel twist of fate, amid worrying about Andy these past few months, I had neglected to focus on my dear Dad and his compromised health with his bad heart. In the very early morning hours, my mom found him laying motionless on the floor and the paramedics were unable to revive him. He was 63.

                        In public, Vic was a simple and understated guy - at times shy around strangers. But the dad we knew had a wicked sense of humor, and had a knack for singing silly songs about anything and everything. I remember as a young kid watching him shine his shoes and listening to him sing a tune about those shoes being brown, or black, or whatever color he was wearing that day! He worked his tail off trying to provide for our large family with FIVE kids running about. He had his flaws as we all do, but five little ones could drive any man's temper up! And although his heart failed him physically, it was as big and full as any person could have hoped for.

                        I can't seem to show my emotions around my mom right now as my siblings and I are trying to be strong for her. She has always been a pillar of strength...afterall this woman battled Stage III fibrosarcoma and beat the odds. It's difficult to see her like this - so fragile. Thank you for letting me type this in tears and thank you for reading it. I will take some time away dear forum family, to attend to my homefront. So be well and lovestrong...we hope to do that for my mom.
                        Maria

                          I wish I could say something to ease the pain. All I can do is say I'm sorry for your loss and mean it.
