I'm thinking of all of them, too, just allow me name some who were closer friends
Lisa.
Dianne.
Lohidoc (Marc)

But I'm thinking of all of them; many were (are) the husbands, wives, sons, daughters of many fellows who post here.
They live in our hearts, forever, untouched by anything that is not love.

KarMel. KarMel was so kind to me when I first joined this forum. She opened up to me about her being a physician and about going through the death of her mother during medical school. I continue on following her strong footsteps in honor of her and my father, and hope they've met in heaven.
