I do not remember her. She died from lung cancer when i was one years old. I have a tape of my first birthday, she was there. She gave me this musical mother goose, you could see in her face that she loved me very much she laughed when i stuck my foot in my cake. She played with me and talked to me. Everyone to this day tells me what a wonderful lady she was, and i only wish that i could remember her. So

My whole life my brother jordan had really bad lungs, he went to the hospital 5 er 6 times a year and had to be put on a resperator. Growing up he had to keep a steem machine in his room and he owned 5 differnet kinds of puffers. the fact that he smoked and did drugs didnt help any either. I knew his asthma was bad but i never knew someone could die of asthma, until he did. he was only 20 years old.

Hey mom,you left too soon.You never gave us the chance to hold you and confort you in your last moments.But as always you were independent to the end,just like you taught us to be.It's been 3 weeks and i still can't believe i'll never see you again.Oh,i know i'll see you later but it doesn't take the pain away that i feel everytime i think of you or look at your picture.You told me that you forgave me but

I lost my dad a few days ago to the most horrific and agonising illness ever , copd - emphasymia . He battled for 2 years , was on o2 24/7 and in the past 6 months couldnt get out of his chair without a struggle. Finally on monday morning he slipped away and took his last breath. I feel heartbroken and lost, the memories i have are so painful watching him fight every day and every night for what we all t

I remember my father always as a large strong outgoing man who took joy in teaching (or trying to) teach me every sport ever created by man. He never had a boy so we spent endless times fishing, camping, and hiking together. Although he was over 6ft. tall he could and would play like a 10 yr. old kid. As my sister's and I grew he did not slow any with age. in fact he joined an old timers hockey team, curl

My father was diagnosed with PPH (Primary Pulmonary Hypertension) in his 70's. He had been very active his entire life. Suddenly he was noticing he was out of breath and then the passing out started. From diagnosis (which took a few years but was finally done when he passed out during a stress test but his heart showed fine)until he succumbed to this unknown disease was a short few months (7). He was trea

At the end of the day, when we come to the edge of all the light we have, there is but one choice - to take a step into the darkness of the unknown. We must, at that point, believe one of two things: either we will find something firm to stand on or we will be taught to fly. Loving, missing and remembering you every day, Dad. You have a namesake great grandson now. We will make sure Ryan

My mother whom I dealry love passed away on April 17th in India. I was fortunate enough to be able to reach India while she was alive in the hospital. For many years she learned to live with Asthma, otherwise she was a healthy person and mentally and physically active till the age of 90. I have seen her struggle to breath so often. The last 3 months of her life was very difficult. Seeing her with oxygen

I didn't know my mother well, but when she called and told me she was coming to spend her last days with me, I was anxious, a bit afraid, but very happy that she would choose to be with me. She was a tough and independent lady, but that last year of her life, we got to know each other, and realize how very much we had both missed. We had in the home hospice and Momma died in my arms. She held me for my

I was glad your son, my husband, was at your bedside when you exhaled your final breath. That he arrived just in time to tell you how much he loved you and kissed you for the last time. It meant a great deal to him. He is the man he is today, not because of me, but because you showed him how.

God saw that you were getting tired and a cure was not to be. So he placed his arms around you and whispered, "Come with me." With tearful eyes we let you go as you slowly slipped away. Although we loved you dearly, we couldn’t make you stay. A precious heart will stop beating; hard working hands were laid to rest. All his insightful talks with us are just wonderful memories that will be missed. For this,

To my Mother who would have turned 61 tomorrow. Who knew that Mom would defiantly battle her 2nd round of Ovarian Cancer only to be taken suddenly by a Pulmonary Embolism. Her beautiful hair was growing back and the new retirment dream house was to be ready at the end of Summer. Aug 10, 2006 Mom left us after a few days of increasing shortness of breath.

My father died of COPD on April 15, 2007 after a long struggle. He was 89 years old and died a horrible death. He was a very strong willed man and had been a big walker (10 miles a day)which probably lengthened his life. I watched my strong, independant father slowly sufficate to death. He said if he had a gun, he'd be dead. I began to pray for him to have a heart attack or stroke, so he could die more pe

To the best granny ever!! Was a Granny to 10 grandkids, and never thought she would make it to any of our graduations. She made it to 5 of them, and got to meet 2 great-grandkids. She is greatly missed, and remember her every day. I finally kept my promised, and donated 10 inches of my hair to the cancer society, on behalf of her. I promised her when she was diagnosed 5 years ago, and started growing my h

My wonderful Mother passed away on March 22, 2007 after a sad battle with COPD. Even though her grandchildren persuaded her to quit smoking more than 20 years ago, the damage was already done. Her struggle with the effects of this awful disease was heartbreaking. I can only hope that she is at peace now. Mom, you will be in our hearts forever.

My wonderful dad passed just over a week ago with COPD after 45 years of smoking. I'm encouraging everyone out there to QUIT SMOKING and spread the words of its dangers before we lose more loved ones to this evil drug. I loved my Daddy dearly and wish he were still here, if it weren't for tobacco and addiction, he still would be. Love Always

My mom was not supposed to have kids because of her epilepsy, but she did anyways and she had Mike and I. Everyone knows my mom in Kenaston and they try to understand difficult it is somtimes to talk about her. I love you mom, and I always will. Love Monica Lynn

On March 9, 2007 my mom lost her fight against COPD. I am the woman I am today because of you mom. This has broken my heart as it was unexpected and to be honest, I guess i just assumed that you would always be here. Because of you, I am a strong, educated and independent woman. You installed in me that it is important to take care of yourself and not to settle for anything other than the best. You h

It will be six years September 21st since I lost my grandfather to COPD. I was the only granddaughter and was very close to him. Fortunately, he sent me a guardian angel in my husband when he initially got sick and we met the day he died and have been together ever since. He never got to attend my wedding but I wore his wedding ring around the strap of my shoe and had a blue silk flower in his honour.

Truly born a fighter to overcome numerous family and demographic battles to become a person of strength and encouragement for all the family members that came in contact with her. The batle with COPD took over 10 years and I suppose that every moment that I was able to experience her life with her was a joy beyond measure for me. Her strength only did not stop at the time of her death in November 2005 b

To the strongest women I know, she went through hell,she fought like hell. It is a horrible disease that makes people and families suffer because we can't do a thing.

I'm sorry we were not able to be closer as a brother and sister. But you were eight years older and when You started high school, I started school. There are too few memories for me of our times together. One of life's sadnesses, I'm afraid. I think of you often, just the same, and your photo is on my piano. With my love, Barb.

Mom had copd/emphysema. She was one of the strongest women I know. She died with her family by her side early this February, she was just 62. She loved her life, her kids, her husband and she will live on through us and our memories. We miss her every day.
February 20, 2007

Dearest Dad, It is almost coming up to a year, that we lost you. I wish we could have had a lot more time together. You and your father succumbed to this disease both at the age of 62. That is far too early. COPD must have been an awful disease for you to live with, breathing lightly and freely is something that we all take for granted. Your persistence to not let the disease change how you lived life, w
February 18, 2007

Dad you have only been gone for a week but it seems much longer, you lost your fight with COPD but you can rest easy now. Love Paul, Helen,billie-jo,Roseanne & Norvin.
