We've lost so many so far this year. Julie became a dear friend that actually lived about 10 minutes from me. I miss her spunky attitude. Terry and I PM'd a lot towards the end. Along with Terry, I still think a posting from Gaelen will show up. Blake (Buckwirth) also lived close by and educated a lot of us about cancer in the lymph nodes. I don't have the dates for when any of these people left us, and I know there are so many on the board who where extremely close to these people. Then there are all the people whose caregivers came here who lost their loved ones. Hopefully, some of you will post info on these strong people who shared their lives with us and encouraged us. We cannot forget these people! I still love the photo of Jules white water rafting - her last great family trip just months before the brain tumors showed up. My wish is as the years go on, the yearly memoriam list gets smaller and smaller.

My husband, Joe (age 36), passed last week after just being diagnosed in April. These message boards were a great source of information and comfort over the 4 sometimes short, but other days long, months of this journey.

I pray that they find a cure for this evil disease so no other families have to go throu this hell.

I'm so sorry to hear that Jessica. Please accept my condolences. It really sucks when cancer strikes a young family such as yours.

I see on the blog that Joe was (also) a victim of the evil Signet Ring Cell.

Thinking of you all.

Best Wishes,
Paul

Very sorry for your loss. I had tears in my eyes as I looked at your blog.
I'm just a dude who still can't believe he had a resection and went through chemo (currently 7 years NED). Is this real life?

We all still miss him, and love him dearly, and will never forget him or that impressions what he left behind on our lives!
After 8,5 years living with CRC, Pete passed away on 17/4/2012. We had lots of quality time, we said our goodbyes! I am at peace because he doesn't suffer anymore! He is now better off with the Lord! We will surely miss him very very much!!

I am too very sorry to hear of your husbands passing at such a young age and the number of months he has is not fair at all. I see you joined the club in April of 2012 but never posted until today, is that correct? Know we will and always
be here for u during the tough times ahead.
