Unhappy

Oh man... I am SO incredibly sorry to hear this. I thought she was responding well to treatment. I haven't been in touch with Paul in awhile though...

Our most sincere condolences and our heart felt prayers go to Paul and their family as well as all friends.

So sorry blue giant.

Cancer is a horrible way to go. I can only hope it wasn't a brain tumor...after my mom, I've decided that's the worst.

My best wishes to you and your family.

That is horrible news!!!! Losing a family member or even a friend has no comparison to losing your spouse. Watching them suffer through all that, the only comfort is that they are no longer suffering and hve found their peacful resting place.

My thouhgts and prayers go out to Paul and his family!!

I do not know Paul myself, but I am very sorry for his loss. It appears his wife was fairly young as well which makes it all the more tragic.

Paul Pm'd me this news 2 days ago...and I assume he did to all his other close friends...I did not make it public here as I wished to respect his privacy..although he did not specifically ask me not to do so.
To the Andersons...my heartfelt sadness and condolences in your loss. It must have been an difficult process. I pray for all of you to be strong and to carry on. Remember all the good times and keep Patti alive with your loving memories.
