Though we haven't had the opportunity to speak/write with you very much, we are very sad to hear that Mark has passed away. Glad though that Mark is no longer suffering of this cancer and praying that God wraps his loving arms around you and your family during the hard days ahead of you.

Don and I would also like to thank you and Mark and your family for the contributions you have made to this wicked esophageal cancer - though it was not to be for Mark - he has certainly contributed to a positive outcome for someone.

God Bless You,
Judy & Don

to express my sorrow. Please wrap yourself in the warm and wonderful memories of the days with Mark before EC. With such a beautiful family, I'm sure you have many.

Nick and I have two young children. My heart hurts for your littles. I can't imagine your heartache as you have to pick up the pieces to function for them.

If there is anything we can offer you, Ann - please know we're here.

I join with the rest of our motley crew in grieving with you. When any of us passes away, it creates a hole in our family. But still, we ARE a family, albeit a rather Ad Hoc one. In time the hole will grow smaller, and the sadness lessen, but it will always be there, unless you plant something in the hole. You choose what you wish to plant. It could be pain, it could be joy, or something else.

Remember, we are here for you as much as we can be.

I am so sorry to hear that Mark has left us. He is now beyond the pain and suffering of cancer. May God wrap him in his loving arms and provide you and your family with peace and support during this difficult time.

With my deepest condolences,

I have not posted much lately but have had you and Mark in my thoughts.
I know first hand how hard this is for losing Mark. He was another of our hero's who fought this beast bravely. You and your family were great caregivers and we all salute you. Please know how much we all care for you.

Ann,

There are never "the right words" to say when I read about a loss to this cancer. At any age, but 45, it is just heart breaking. You and your family are in our prayers.

Ann, this is all so close to me with Bob passing away on February 27. I know how hard this is to even comprehend. Keep your loved ones close as you will feel comfort from the love they have for the both of you. Linda
