My cousin Dan

I'm really scared and sad,
my very close cousin Dan, has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma. He is the greatest guy ever, why do these things happen to the best people? He lived closest to my mom and was always there to take her to a Valentines dinner complete with a dozen roses, or to stop in and help with the yard or things around the house on his travels to the bay area and back home, ...he was the first one there when mom had that heart scare 2 Octobers ago.
Mom called me in a bit of a panic, her sister is in the Bay area at the hospital with Dan while he had some more tests. She was to be at moms on Monday, and as of yesterday she had yet to hear from her.
Dans brother called me yesterday afternoon and filled in some of the blanks, like how the heck did this happen? He was never in construction, they suspect that beautiful Old ranch home where the boys grew up.
This can't be happening, mesothelioma has a 3 to 12 month life expectancy He's only 5 years older than me. Such a handsome and big dude, over 6' tall and funnier that heck.
Damn damn damn damn damn, and more words I can't say. I will pray and pray and pray and pray and pray and have lit candles,
a miracle would be wonderful.
We almost lost him to thyroid cancer when he was 12, this just doesn't seem fair he even quit smoking.

Dear folks please send good energy, prayers and hope.
Thank you

I'm sorry to hear that his disease has progressed so rapidly. Don't be shy about letting hospice help you through this.

Dan left us today for worlds uncharted...
words just can't fill the void,
yet tears burn like liquid nitrogen.
a beautiful heart silenced in this realm,
broken by the bane of horrors created by man.
Gone way too young, and it is SO not fair,
not fair for my aunt to have to bury her son.
My hero, and the one who was always there for me.
I want to talk to you damn it.!!
We were just looking for houses to live out the end of days, and now they days have ended. You won't be down the street or the first one at moms, or there to get me at the airport, we were supposed to go camping and fishing this year... :cry:

Rest with Peace favorite cousin/nephew/son/brother/brother-in-law/uncle/devoted step-father/step-grandfather
loved by all

Daniel
