Gone too soon

Our friend Mitch died on Friday, after a long battle with cancer. He and Pete have been friends since high school - when he fought bone cancer. He managed to stay cancer free until about 5 years ago when he was diagnosed with a GBM (brain tumor). He tried so hard, but this one beat him.

He was 34 and left behind two darling children. He was a wonderful, gentle, funny man and a fantastic father.

He will be missed.

Oh Laurie, I'm sorry. I remember you telling me about him (and I'm sure I met him at your wedding). Please pass my condolences on to Pete too.

Oh, GBM, that's what my dad had. I am SO sad to hear this... My thoughts are with his family tonight.

So sorry for your loss. Been thinking of you much. Take care.
