Cancer Takes Another Life

Of the Mother of my teenage children before her time.

Karen's "dance" (as she called it) with cancer is over as of 7 AM this morning. She is in a good place and died peacefully surrounded by family and friends. Carl said she smiled just as she passed. Thanks to all of you for your love and support.

Hug your spouse, friend, kids, parents now, because they could be taken faster than you know.

Goodbye, Hon - I love you.


Update: Her Obit, very well done.


  1. Dammit.
    Our buddy Tim from Scared Stiff just told me.
    My sincerest condolences man. She is in a better place now with no more suffering, I had no idea.
    God bless you my man, I always enjoy your comments and look forward to seeing you again at my place after you have done some grieving.

  2. Busted (Phillip), Tim, and Melissa, Thank you so much. It means a lot to me to hear from my online friends as well as my real world friends during this time.

    Oh, and Busted, I thought you would have blocked me from comments a long time ago :-). What size boot do you wear?

    Thanks again - this made me feel really good in a time where good feelings are hard to come by.

  4. Thanks EBM, She was a "warrior princess" as in her obit and sorely missed already.

    Welcome Ranch Chimp, I wish we could have met under better circumstances. Tim is a good friend to send you over.

  5. may you find peace and tranquility - it has been a few weeks - but i know it takes a lot of time to heal
