      My sweet husband, Cal, a former Navy and airline pilot, is now flying in Heaven.  I thank all of you for the information and inspiration that we have received over the last 10 months of this grueling journey.  I wish all of you hope, love and healing.

I know you will be comforted knowing you had such a big part helping Cal fight this miserable beast. I lost my dear Ron to the beast almost 10 years ago, and the pain comes back everytime I see another strong ,productive person has become a victim. Please feel free to make contact in the future. The next while will be difficult, and then you will have to start building a new and different life, take good care of yourself..and never feel guilty or selfish doing it. Love to you…Joan
