Uncle Charlie, you will not be forgotten. Thank you for your service to this country and may you rest in peace. Dad, it has just been over six months since you passed from Hamman Rich syndrome. All of us miss and love you. Even though it's been hard since you and uncle Charlie died within weeks of each other, I know you are not in pain anymore.

My Dad died from etheopathic fibrosis, this is a disease that affects the lungs with scarring. They do not know anything about this disease except you will die, or you will need a double lung transplant. They do not know if this is hereditary, but I think it is. My Dad was first diagnoised with walking phenomia and in three weeks he was gone. Since that time my Dad's brother died from the same thing,

You tought us how to love, and how to understand and care for others in need. No one could have given their children more. This has been a tough year for our family, two of our family members died of lung cancer. My mom, Bonnie, died at 54 in March of 2002 and leaves behind two children and three grandchildren.

I watched my Dad, suffer a painful death from years of smoking. I miss you!! Next just a few years ago I watched my brother only 52 slip away, with tumors poking out of his very thin body as he prayed to die in the end, both had lung cancer! and were heavy smokers. If you have seen the commercials on some channels and don't believe them,BELIEVE me they are true and much worse in person. I have quit smokin

Mom, you were unfortunately one of the rare cases of pulmonary fibrosis that progressed so quickly that no one could help you. I miss you so much and it doesn't seem to be getting any easier. If only we had known we could have fought this together. Love you

Mom, it has been 9 yrs already since you went into palliative care, never to come home again. It seems like just yesterday. Lung cancer is such a horrible disease, something that no one should have to go through. Miss you so much and never so much as when I spend time with your great-granddaughter, Mariska. You would love her so much - she is so much fun, she's smart and provides great amounts of laug

Margaret, my other half, we were together for a long long time, God took you much to early, I think of you every day, wish that I could still call you and ask if you would like to go shopping, have lunch, anything just so we could be together and talk. You enjoyed life to the fullest. You were strong enough to win the battle against Breast Cancer but you could not win against Lung Cancer even though you n

This is a tribute to my wonderful and beautiful mom, Margaret. She was taken from us too soon in November 2010 due to Lung Cancer. She was the family stone ~ the most ambitious, loving and strongest woman I've ever known in my life. She was strong enough to fight and win against Breast Cancer, but could not prevail against Lung Cancer. She loved life to the fullest and inspired us all to reach for the s

This is for my wonderful dad that I loved more than anything in this world. My dad Mike was my BEST friend ever and such a good dad to all us three kids. My dad starting smoking at the young age of 11 in 1955 as in those days it was the COOL thing to do but when he got sick in 2007 it wasn't so COOL anymore. It got so bad that he was wheezing all the time and having trouble just walking from the basement

She was told in Saskatoon cancer clinic two before you passed. while you were struggling wit
July 15, 2011

Dad I love you. You were my rock. Your courage and will to live was exceptional. It breaks my heart that a Dr. misdiagnosis caused you to die. A year in the hospital on the vent, not being able to speak, or eat, and no quality of life. You refused to give up and you never lost your smile. You had to live away from home and alone because we have no ventilator units in our town. I know you were sad wit
