Goodbye David.......Safe journey

Today, our Friend David lost his battle....

David, you fought a hard fight and couldn't have done anything more...I shall miss your words of wisdom, humour and fighting spirit enormously. I will never forget you.

Thanks to everyone for the prayers and thoughts.

Hugs to you Geraldine and the rest of the family


David's journey is in my blog list 'You Win Again'....


  1. That's so so sad.
    Thanks for letting us know via your blog Carole.
    Thoughtful as always

  2. Very very sad news.
    I too will never forget him. A lovely, wise, articulate man who lived life to the full. He became a great friend to me through cancerchat and the blog world and I'm so sad that I never got to meet him in person.
    Much much love to Geraldine and the rest of David's lovely family

  7. I too am so sorry to hear about David's loss. It is sad. David's journey and chatting will have a far reaching effect I can see by the previous posts. May his family be blessed with peace and comfort during this difficult time. May they feel the love and support of others around the world reaching out to them with hugs and encouragement.
