Earlier this week I found out that PALS Mike had passed away in Nov. 07. He designed my fireman avatar and some for other members. He started the Cdn. PALS website and ran it until 2006 when he had to quit. He lived across the country from me but while he still talked we were regular. I'm shamed that I had not called to ask his wife how he was in so long.
Fri. morning a good friend, Don Mckenzie passed away after his battle with ALS. The past 2 years Don and I started the Brampton Walk for ALS by cutting the ribbon together.
Sat. night our 33 year old niece passed away after a valiant fight against breast cancer. It really does make you wonder some days. Cherish what you have.

AL.

Hello my friend. These losses are sad and a bit unsettling, to say the least. Give those grand kids an extra hug- they will chase away the blues and keep you warm in the process. Hugs, Cindy

PS: an extra glass of merlot can't hurt, either, LOL!

Dear Al, So sorry to hear of all the sadness you are receiving right now. You have my deepest sympathies. Try and remember the good times you had with them and not the sad. And give the babies in your family lots of love. They help just by being themselves to make us smile.

Al, at the risk of sounding repetitive, I too want to offer my condolences. You have experienced a lot of loss and your message to us all to cherish what we have is much appreciated.

You are never far from my thoughts. :D

Al;
I would like to join the other good people here in offering my condolences for your loss. No one knows what is planned for any of us and we have to make the best of what we have while we have it. Wishing you all the best,

Barry
