    I would like to let our freinds on the HAMB know that my wife and best friend of 35 years passed away Friday morning after a long battle with cancer. She will be missed so much. I take comfort in the fact that some of the best times she had was attending the events across the country and the parking lot activities that usally followed. She was a great person devoting her time to working with disabled kids and suppoprting me and our two kids in all we wished to do. I need to take care of a few things so I will be busy over the next few days, I just wanted to let all those great folks that made our travels so much fun. Jon

    My prayers are with you, oldspeed. I lost my wife to cancer when she was just 32 years old. We had already been married 15 years; and were really just started to get established in our professions and with our kids. We had twin girls, one of whom died a few years later at just fifteen, so I know somewhat of the pain you may be feeling. Godspeed to your wife.

    I am so sorry for your loss ...

    I cannot imagine the grief and loss. My wife and I have been married 34 years ... after dating for 8 years. I would be totally lost in your situation

  9. I am very sorry to hear about the passing of your wife . . . wish I had an opportunity to know you folks, you definitely had something special.

    This seems to be a difficult week for some reason -- one of my best friends lost his Father in Law on Thursday, his Dad had bypass surgery on Monday. Another friend had a stroke at just 47 years old and will probably never practice his trade again . . . and one of my engineer's father is in really bad shape with cancer.

    Life is short, wonderful and fragile . . . make the best of every moment you have on this earth.

    God Bless you and your wife . . . may she rest in peace and comfort.

    So very sorry to hear the news. I remember meeting her in the parking lot of a hotel in Syracuse a few years ago. She was very friendly and outgoing. My condolences to you, your family and friends.

    Our thoughts & prayers are with you. I can only imagine your pain and sense of loss. I've had 42 years with my wife and best friend and although I'd never let on, I'd be devastated if I lost here. If you ever need to talk, please feel free.
