    I hate to say it, but I think the more aggressive the cancer the more of a blessing it is for the “victim” & their family. The only thing I can think of worse than losing a close loved one is watching them suffer a long slow death. I lost a dear friend to an aggressive lymphoma when I was in college, she was dead 1 month after diagnosis. Condolences to all.
    I keep praying for a massive heart attack to get me when it’s my time & kill me before I hit the floor, another is to be skiing & turn just in time to taste the bark. A head shot used to be on the list, but I don’t want to tie up anyone else’s karma with my death.

      I know what you mean….. with my life… I always felt that one day…. I might end up like my Poppa said….. reaching for the stars…. maybe end up as one….. sigh….I just hope like you mentioned…. that it would be quick… both of my parents died in a flash…. I am hoping I too one day…. will not be a burden on my children…. and just go quickly but we don’t always get to choose….

    That’s tough news to take. All you can do is be there if you’re needed.

    My favourite sister died when she was only 32.At the time it was devastating but I have since realised it was just a merciful release.Most of my family are now with her and I’m actually looking forward to seeing her again.

        Thanks.It’s worth mentioning that she smoked and died of lung cancer but her doctors all agreed that the cancer was not caused by smoking.

            Something you might find amusing.We shared an appreciation of vulgar humour and used to swop dirty jokes.Our mother realised what was going on and expressed her disapproval by joining in.She was as bad as we were.

        My dad was a few years younger when he went, the same way, too many go like this.
