If love & a positive spirit could make you immortal ...

Friday, February 01, 2013

... then you'd still be with us Ron (aka Rusty Racer) google for the blog, it's an amazing read.

My wonderful, positive, full of life, positive, much loved, positive, intelligent, positive, fight-til-the-bitter-end, positive, cancer battling brother in law Ron Scanlan died this morning at 10.55am Saturday 2 February 2013.

Ron has been battling cancer and various other side effects and complications for over 7 years now.

I was honoured enough to be present when Ron died. His breathing slowed, slowed, slowed and finally came to an end. His wife, Sarah, was snuggled up to him, and his mum was holding his hand. It was so peaceful and so heartbreaking.

This day was just not meant to come so soon. He was only 51.

The pain is totally raw and overwhelming ... it's kinda hard to put into words what I want to say but I guess I'm gonna blog it out (or maybe not) over the upcoming few days, weeks, months.

Too overwhelmed to type much more at this point ...
