I thought I had mentioned it before but I can't find it....

Next door neighbor was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer (never smoked in her life) at christmas. She died this morning.

The person who lived in our house before us (a former Michigan football player, then cop) also died from lung cancer never having smoked. At the time, they blamed it on Radon in the cop corner of city hall and passive smoke from all the other cops

Color me not so sure....

Our houses were built on farmland though, not industrial reclaimed land, so it couldn't be industrial toxins.

Beest bought a radon test kit, but I have no idea where he put it. and maybe I don't want to know. The house came back negative for radon when we bought it. :/

The hits keep coming...
Maybe pick up another radon test?
I think some of the older classes of herbicides and pesticides were connected to lung cancer at least among the people who applied them. I don't know it they would persist if someone was dumping excess.

It's worth it to get the kit. I know there's no extra emotional energy to care about stuff these days, but it's better to know.

You might want to get your water tested as well. Could be contaminants.

Hey dudes, How cool is this? His local paintball field, Hell Survivors, just opened a new area and they named part of it for him....

(It should be public, but you'll have to have a facebook account to see it, I think)

Today (May 20th) would have been our 24th wedding anniversary. Before we knew it was over, I had decided it was the "Clock" anniversary (I've been making them up since the traditional ones for every year run out at 15, and we both like clocks). Once the chemo had to be stopped and we knew it was game over, he added owning a nixie tube clock to his bucket list. So I got him one and he loved watching it. And it's silver-colored, so that's next year taken care of too.....

There is no point to this post. I'm just really sad and I miss him.

No need to apologize. Itís a lovely story and worth sharing. Besides, telling personal stories is one of the great pleasures of life.
