I have been following a gentleman I met here on the forum a couple years back. I spoke to his girlfriend earlier today and she told me he was not doing well and then a couple hours ago he lost his battle to prostate cancer.
I do not remember what his forum name was, I will find out and post it. He was in his early 50's and lived in FL.

It is not my intention to post negative or depressing stuff, I only post this to make sure people realize that this disease has a face.

peace and love

This is a painful reminder that we are all fighting a very real enemy every day.
My sympathies to his friends and family.

My sympathies to all who were close to him Dale. We need to be reminded I think that there are many casualties in this battle. Early 50's is such an early much left to do. It seems incongruous, but thank you for posting this sad news.
