    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.

      Oh Jule I was so afraid of that  when you had not responded to my e-mail.  I can't even begin to tell you how I am feeling right now especially knowing the pain your going through.  I can say it has been a great blessing exchanging  e-mails and leaning on each other for support through this Ipi trial.  My prayer is that God will give you grace to get through this.  I know I will be wearing your shoes at some point and time.  We just don't know when.  Please take care and continue to e-mail me from time to time.

       I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. You're right, he's in heaven. My first wife has been in heaven for 18 years, from a car crash. She was 37 and our kids were 4 and 2 at the time. I remember I think you live in Ft. Myers. My wife and I live in LaBelle. We're in Ft. Myers alot since there's not much you can buy in LaBelle. We'd love to take you out to eat. My email is [email protected]

       I'll pray for strength, guidance and His peace for you during this time.

      I'm so sorry for your loss. My husband is also a former Navy pilot and airline pilot. The doctor told us that this disease strikes pilots frequently and we've know quite a few who have lost their battle with Melanoma- I'm so sorry that Cal was taken by this horrible disease. Your loss is devastating and I wish you peace and comfort at this time.

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
