    Well, we got the news today. Another friend down with invasive (and inoperable) cancer. Brain, lungs, lymph nodes, etc.. He's in his early 60's and retired a few years ago. he's the husband of one of my wife's teacher friends. A good ole Hokie.. Massive headaches and system upheaval beginning just a week or so ago. No prior symptoms or warnings. Wouldn't have done any good anyhow.. A few weeks or a month or so.. That's it.. Ron

    Thoughts and prayers for your friend and his family. I hate cancer for what it took from me 9 months ago. The last picture we took together. Thanksgiving 2010.

    Sorry to hear. My uncle fought brain cancer for nearly 2 years before it finally got him. He was miserable the whole time and I wouldn't wish that upon anyone.

    All this really puts so many things we say we love in perspective. For it is not the things in this world that are the most important, but the friends we surround ourselves with and those we love.

    We will be praying for those who need healing and for the people in their lives as well.
    Peace my friend...

    And Hokie. So sorry for your loss.
    Prayers for you to find Peace.

    Regards.
