This is a tribute to my mom. She died of Lymphnode Lung Cancer on Saturday the 12th of July, only 5 months after she was diagnosed with it. I will miss her tremendously. She was always there for me when I had any problems whether they were big or small. We will miss you mom very, very much. I will take good care of your grand-babies for you and I know you will be watching over us always. LOVE YOU,MOM

My mother just passed away on July 12, 2003 from Lung and Lymphnote cancer. She was diagnosed February 12, 2003 and was told she had 2 years to live 5 months later to the day she passed away. She was 61 years young and full of life and the most wonderful loving mother and friend. I just want her to know that she will live on in me and my family especially her grandchildren. I love you mom and I just wi

In loving memory to my precious mother who died of Pulmonary Fibrosis. She kept the diagnosis and severity of it to herself, not wanting to trouble or worry her family. She shared it with her closest friends and they let us know later what she had known. Her last month, when suddenly (to us) the dr. put her on oxygen we were able to find out what was going on. I praise my mother for her great strength,

My grandfather died of lung cancer in 1995, just a few months before my husband and I married. He never got to meet our daughter. I have many fond memories of him, including his last dying wish; for all his kids and grandkids to quit smoking before they got to the stage he was in. He said it was the painful way to die. I remember that as I try to quit smoking.

My father was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer about a year ago- he was 52 and had quit smoking 8 years prior. My father fought underwent chemotherapy and radiation at the same time, all along thinking he was going to win this battle. No one wanted to believe that he would be defeated and those that did didnt have the heart to tell him. I remember walking into my house the day I found out and my father

MY PRECIOUS FATHER EDWARD, HOW MANY TIMES AS I WATCHED YOU SUFFER DID YOU NOT BEG ME,AND PLEAD WITH ME NOT TO SMOKE. I DID NOT LISTEN.NOW I TOO AM SUFFERING WITH THIS DREADED DISEASE OF COPD AS YOU DID. HOW FOOLISH I WAS WATCHING YOU GASP FOR AIR, THINKING THAT IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN TO ME. I ONLY HOPE AND PRAY THAT MY OWN CHILDREN WILL NOT BE AS FOOLISH AS I WAS IN HOPES THAT THEY WILL LISTEN TO ME AS I

My husband, Sam died June 5. he was being treated for cancer of the mouth, but I believe, after reading the death certificate, and talking to some medical people, and also seeing things in retrospect that COPD was more of a cause for his death. We were married for 47 years, and I loved him dearly, and miss him so much.

Jean and Dick were from the era of smokers. Their smoking short-changed all of the family, as they both died young. Both are missed by their girls and their grandchildren.

My father passed away from lung cancer at the young age of 62. He and my Mother had smoked for years. The very day my Dad had his first chemo treatment my Mom had half a lung removed. He died six months after his diagnosis. My Mom never smoked after her surgery and is still doing well 15 years later. It is never too late to quit! We were robbed of this wonderful father and grandfather and smoking wa

Dad, we miss you greatly. It's been four years now, but it seems just like yesterday that we were together. The song" Wind Beneath My Wings" that we dedicated to you is how much you meant to us and to so many others.

I know too many people who died of complications due to cancer. Pierino Darolfi quit smoking many years before lung cancer got him. He was an incredible, kind and gentle soul who deserved to live well into old age. At 65, he left us, his loving children, grandchildren and nieces and nephews that adored him. Giuseppe Quattro died before I even got a chance to meet him. He was my husband's father and he

DAD On May 29/03 you drew your last breath with all of us there to comfort you. Just three years before, you comforted me, as I fought so hard for breath at the Asthma challange test. Your strong voice reassured me that I would be okay, and I was. I wanted so much to tell you, that you too would be okay. But you weren't. The Fibrosis was too much and the time too short. I love you Dad. And I thank you fo

A small tribute to a man that missed a great many things in his life. The most important thing was enjoyment through the last years of life. Smoking took away his chance to mend fences and share lasting memories with a loving family. He died early and in pain. He lived too late and without joy. We will miss him greatly and hope that he has made peace at last. Your only son, Bill.

My father passed away in April of 1989. He had Emphasema and he passed quite suddenly. It was unexpected for the whole family as he was always a " live forever " kind of man to his family. He was very much missed after his passing. He smoked terribly and he tried to quit many times but he was unsuccessful. He tried all the gimmicks on the market today to aid his quitting, but nothing worked and now we hav

My Mom, Laney, passed away five years ago March 16, 1998. She was a smoker for 60 years. For years I begged her to quit. She told me to mind my own business. I was breathing the air, it was my business. In 1995 she called me and asked me to take her to the Dr. She was sent to the hospital where the diagnosis was very bleak. She quit smoking that day, August 5,1995. She suffered for three years living on o

It's been a long time since Alice left. She had smoked all her life I think and it was what killed her in the end. I miss her phone calls out of the blue to ask about the family history. Or when she'd call to ask how I was doing. I enjoyed her telling me about the trials of living in a backwoods part of the States where there were micro nutrients missing from the water and a surprising number of other med

He also left a large family in Hawaii (Maui).

To my grandparents Gladys and Bill who both died of smoking related diseases. I'm sorry you never got a chance to know my wife and child. You were a powerfull influence on my life, I hate that I didn't get to share more of it with you. I think of you often and will hopefully not repeat your mistakes. Hope you've found all the good fishing spots there.
