My Mom used to say, "If you live long enough, you'll get cancer." Unfortunately, sometimes you don't get to live a long enough time before this insidious disease can take you. My mom died from cancer 8 years ago this month at age 69. My beloved Uncle Al was only 53 when he passed. My older brother was just diagnosed with prostate cancer, altho he'll probably (hopefully) beat it.
Chances are that you, someone close to you, or someone you know has come face to face with cancer.
It is with great sadness that I acknowledge the passing today (June 5, 2009) of PAT KELLY, a.k.a. "PK" from Piffard N.Y. He was taken away at the tender age of 51 and leaves many friends and loved ones to mourn his passing. I mourn his passing as well as PK was a long time, dedicated, loyal listener and friend of WCMF. He loved PINK FLOYD and was always on the phone either requesting a Floyd song, or thanking us for playing one previously. He was a real ball buster (in a good way!) and it was always a pleasure to speak with him and occaisionally run into him at 'CMF happenings. He was one good dude. Safe journey PK.
If you or someone you know and care about has been affected by cancer, maybe think of making a donation to the American Cancer Society.
Pat Kelly-aka "PK" WCMF fan, Pink Floyd fan, Razorsharks fan, Good Dude.
