So hard to forget that booming laugh. You were a big teddy bear, loved by your family and friends. I remember you as my surrogate father, letting me take the wheel of that huge buick after my first driving lesson. You were brave and strong, and fought a long battle with IPF. Now your brother Richard has it, help him be as strong as you were. You are dearly missed.

My grandmother suffered from Emphysema for several years. She was the sweetest lady I have ever known and I miss her. By me and others she will always be remembered. She didn't let this disease get in her way of doing things that she enjoyed. I really envy and love her so much. I think of you grandma and I'll never forget you.

6 years ago I met Jessica, at first we hated each other but after awile we became friends. But she and I went down different paths...it just started stupidly...she stole a pack of cigarettes and soon we both were addicted. I moved a year later and stopped smoking, but she didn't. Two years ago i went back to see her only to find out she was had a hard to treat lung cancer and a year later she died.

My Mother began smoking in the 1950s when it was the "in thing". My Father passed away in January, 1988 due to esophageal cancer which was caused by smoking. He never saw his grandchildren. My Mother was lucky. She was diagnosed with emphysema in 1988, and quit smoking immediately. She went on oxygen in 1998 and lived until November 25, 2006 when she passed away after a hip transplant due to breathin

On October 30th, 2006, a very special boy named Lonnie passed away. This was also the day my heart broke. Lonnie and I had been best friends since we were 5 years old and last year we were especially close.

Ken Larkin died of lung cancer on November 8, 2005 at the age of 57. He was my favorite uncle and still is. I know he's still around somehow, even if it's just in my thoughts. His death turned my life around for the better in showing me what life really is. I live for him now, and I have not had my last memory with him because he's with me all the time. Ken, you're my hero and you know it.

My oldest sister was diagnosed with a spot on her lung. She did get it under control and the spot went away. She used alternative medicine as she was diabetic. About three months later she had a bad pain in her arm and could not move it. The cancer ended up in her spinal cord. The doctors say it was caused by second-hand smoke. My sister and I have never smoked. We are children of second-hand smoke. Now I

So, when she was diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis in May it broke her sprirt. She never let up though. Because of her family. She wanted to be there for us and we wanted her too. In the end however, sh

Now, my Dad, he could pack a suitcase! Everytime I went home for a visit I needed to borrow another suitcase to bring all the things I collected back home. Both Mom and Dad would go through drawers and cupboards offering items from the past to take home. Only Dad could get those suitcases packed and shut. He’d roll up the clothes and fit everything in, somehow, just like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.
