I'm so sorry. I'll keep you all in my prayers.

D, Rick's passing saddens me greatly. I wish I would have kept in touch with him over the years. Rest in peace, Rick. You will be greatly missed.

*hugs* I saw it when I woke up this morning. You okay?

Yeah, It's just so sad. I feel sadder for Barbara, she lost her husband just after their third anniversary and he was just 20 days away from turning 40. It's just staggering he didn't even make 40. He got dealt some shitty health cards and I just wish there was more doctors could have done for him, before it got to the stage he was at in the end. No one should have to die in constant pain like he had been living with for some time now.

He really did get the short end of the health stick. He was so enthusiastic back in the GWFF days! And then he seemed so determined, even after he first got ill, to go on finding joy in things. It is very sad.

He was like that still, right up until the end. I sent flowers to Barb, it seems so trite, but I had to do something.

I'm so sorry for your loss.
Jun. 11th, 2013 03:03 am (UTC)
My sympathies on your loss, and to his wife as well.

Wait, WHAT?!

I really need to log into LJ more often.

How did it happen, D?

Complications honey. You know the cancer came back and he had another round of chemo no long ago. Ever since then the edema and other complications kept getting worse. He suffered six major organ failures as a result and just in the end his body couldn't fight anymore, He's been on lifesupport a few weeks, his body not accepting dialysis, etc... Check Chris Malpass on FB he posted a bunch of detailed updates in his statuses about rick's condition as it happened. They copied them over onto Rick's facebook page.

Saishi called me right after he passed on the 9th. He died around 11:30 that night and I got the call just before midnight. It's really sad. They are holding an Irish wake for him on the 30th if you can make the drive to Harrisburg.

I'm going to try for it. Harrisburg isn't a crazy far drive from me from my area of New Jersey. If I can drive out to Hershey, I can drive out to Harrisburg. It's a Sunday, so I shouldn't be scheduled to work that day.

I just saw Chris and Beth's posts through Rick's page, and am going to try and dig up the artwork I did for Rick several years ago to give to Beth. I want her to have the original.

Barb is Rick's wife. Beth is Chris' wife.

Crud, got my info crossed.
Jun. 14th, 2013 02:35 pm (UTC)
I'm so sorry.
