I am glad there will be this thread to come back to and read when I want to be close to him and it is a great legacy for everyone. I am sure you all help him as well during his journey.
Couldn't agree more w/your statements, Diane. Ron was always forward thinking & encouraged others to focus on the positive whenever possible.
Am posting a link to the thread "Loved Ones Left Behind Ongoing" in case you may find it helpful to view how some of us have felt or are coping since the loss of a loved one, or you may even feel up to posting there. Certainly any posts in this thread w/b followed as well:http://coloncancersupport.colonclub.com ... nd#p457659
Thanks for posting that in some small way we could let you know how much Ron meant to us here on the forum & bring you some comfort in knowing this, that we understand your loss. We never get used to losing our friends here on CT.
