Forgive me if I missed the post this Memorial Day Weekend, but I didn't see anything like this posted as of yet this weekend and I know some had talked about starting a thread listing everyone we can recall whom we have lost on the colorectal board this past year. BTW, I did just notice today that CSN does have a general board now called "In Loving Memory", which anyone can post a memorial for someone they lost to cancer.

Being very tired at the moment I'm writing this, I don't want to post some info without all the info for people we've lost, so I'll leave it at this and leave this open for people to add names and information for our dear friends that we've lost here this past year.

Thanks for putting this out. I remember them everyday. I just love the moments as I have said that cancer doesn't creep into my head.
Lost some on another site I visit now and then too. I hate cancer so much. Love all you guys for your help and courage. Paula

It is sad to look at the names of those we have lost but it is so important to remember them. I think of these folks often and continue to pray for their families.
Family members - know that we are with you and we continue to think of you.

I also add:
Angel - dear husband of Michelle.

Aloha,
Kathleen

Oh man. I didn't read that Roy Peters had died. I sent him a PM because his cancer was so much like my husbands. He got right back to me and then I didn't see him anymore. So sorry we have lost these people.

Remembering many who were here before the time of most of you – I know I am forgetting a few and that disturbs me:

Bud
Kerry Morton
Jana Miller
Debra (debralla)
Mark (Limey)
I was supported by many of these folks when I was first diagnosed and I’ll never forget them.

She will always live on in our hearts!

Add DanR to the list. He didn't have colorectal cancer, but had esophageal cancer and was on that board. He communicated back and forth with me through PM's when I was looking into going to see Dr. Cantrell in Nashville back in Nov/Dec 09. He made a post or two about Dr. Cantrell's treatment on our board back during that time. Dan passed away in January 2010.

Thanks Lisa for getting this started. I wanted to start it Friday but I've just been too busy. It seems the few people I remembered from the beginning of the year have been mentioned and I'm glad I have a place now to go back to to remember who they were. I guess I will put up a rememberance for R&B singer Teddy Pendergrass,(colon cancer) January 2010, 59 years old. And although not this year I'm still remembering today , My Mom June age 72 from brain cancer and a good friend, Ron age 39 from Lymphoma. Plus many more from various cancers (unfortunatley)... Let their passing be an inspiration instead of a sad memory. This is a battle we wage against an invisible foe and each that goes before us leaves their mark to guide us.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
but Love leaves a memory no one can steal.

...for posting this and starting this thread. very thoughtful. holding all of those in the Light, who continue to grieve, for healing of their hearts. Let us continue with loving memories.
My Grandmom, who died in March 1999; bladder cancer, then a stroke after surgery. My Grandmom died 2 1/2 months later, at home, with her only child (my Mother) and 3 of her Grandchildren (me being one of them) by her side.

So sad to read of so many who have family members who have died from cancer. Wow- Donna lost both parents to different cancers in their 40's. I have absolutely no one in my family so far who has had cancer. I have the "honor" of being the first.

May everyone who has gone on be in a better place now and may their grieving family members and friends have fond memories of them.

on my fridge of the semi-colons I've met in person or talked to on the phone a couple of times (yes you are on that list). That is how I remember some of the names. I missed a few: Nettie42 and Mary come to mind the quickest. Your "short list" made me cry since they were some very special people. I know this thread was for the last year but I couldn't stop that abruptly.

Grandma Marion, the best cook and fun to party with

My mom's cousin Mary Jean, wish I had got to know you

So many family members lost to colon cancer, I feel them cheering me on and felt them with me during my battle every step of the way. I hope they are proud of me.

It saddens me to read of so many wonderful people who lost their battle with cancer. It makes me mad as well because we haven't found a cure yet. I will keep these people in my prayers. When I heard of people who lost their battle it reaffirms in me that we are all on God's time. Some live for years with cancer and others last a few months. It's not how much time we have here but how we have spent our time while here; that's what's important. May God continue to bless you each day, and may you see and recognize those blessing.

Hi everyone..haven't posted in awhile...found this site to be very encouraging and supportive during such a difficult time. My mom passed away 7/19/09..colon cancer. She battled 6 years with such a horrible disease. She was a real fighter and trooper...I miss her dearly...not a day goes by that I don't think of her. She left a great legacy for us all.

It's been quite a while since I've responded to any posts, but I still read them. Just wanted to post my husband Scott to the list. It's been 4 1/2 years and he is missed by his family. Love you honey!

And to all the friends we've lost, you are all missed too! Too many :-(

On a happier note, I still see alot of you here!

Well...not just cancer kills...drunk driver's too (and of course they make it alive, but the innocents who drive safely and not drinking usually don't...):

In a car accident:
Dad: 9-11-05 (at age: 31)
Brother: 9-11-05 (at age: 11)
I was only 9 years old...I thought this was more than enough...but then came the monster (cancer):
Mom: 6-22-09 (at age: 35)

........there's no single day I don't think of her...I miss her as well as the rest of my family...sometimes I ask: "where did my family go???" Life is not fair at all! But I will become a scientist in the area of cancer and I will give a revenge to cancer!!!!!!! I will study very hard to reach this goal!!!!
