    One very close to the family and another I played tennis with.
    One leaves 2 young children and the other 3 early 20s kids and 2 grandchildren.
    I am so at odds with my faith as to why these 2 wonderful and caring women have to die. As a community we are in such deep pain now. Their strength and courage with their long battles fighting the diseases carries me on.

    So sorry for your loss,My older brother lost his battle last year,and another friend will most likly not make it past this weekend,and one of my work associates wife was just informed she has melanoma yesterday!And there are others!

    I am beginning to think they don't want to do much for this horrible thing,way to much money in the so called treatment.

    One was enough for me.

    I'm still not over it.

    My empathy is with you. :)

    Condolences Gadawg.

    I imagine that even those of us with no particular faith might find ourselves raging against the forces of the universe when a loved one dies. I hope that, whatever resolutions you find, they help you through your grief.
