Precious life...

Monday, August 06, 2012

I just discovered that my dear friend, monty68, passed away on July 16 from lung cancer. I met Monty last year on spark after he commented on a blog I wrote. He was in his 70's and so full of love and life. He encouraged me to make my goals and forge ahead and always told me he was raising a glass of water to me.

He told us of his cancer on June 29...17 days later he was gone. Life is precious...fat or skinny...don't let it pass you by. Don't define your life by what you see while you scrutinize yourself in the mirror. LIVE IT! Your size does not determine what you have to offer the world. are missed. Thank you my friend. I raise my glass to you.

emoticon CHEERS!

    WOW! I've seen that name around a lot, probably here and on other blogs :-( 17 days :-( I'm sorry to hear it the news. It sounds like he helped you and many others.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. My mother-in-law passed away on Friday of cancer too. It was quick too and a big shock to us all.
    May your dear friend and my MIL be in God's loving hands. emoticon
