Wall of Remembrance


I could say all the flowery things anyone could think of to pay tribute to you, but it wouldn't seem to fit. You came into my life at a desperate time, you made me laugh when I wanted to cry, you made me feel when I thought all feeling was lost. I hear that laugh, see that space missing in the side of your smile, and remember the sweetest tenor I have ever heard. I don't know if God will allow me

My Poppa was the strongest man in the world. As a little girl I thought he was a superhero, as an adult I realized, though he wasn't a superhero, he was still my hero. My poppa battle cancer and survived; he survived a heart attack; but it was his emphysema that took him. He fought his last battle on Oct. 15, 2009. He was my inspiration and I was his hope for the future. RIP Poppa, I love you more tha

After a long battle with Pulmonary Fibrosis, my grandpa passed away on September 30th, 2009. The last months, and couple weeks in particular, were a huge struggle for him but he kept fighting until the end. Words really can't describe how much my family and I love and miss him. Although he is no longer physically here with us, the memories we had with him will be with us forever. RIP Grandpa <3

Hi Frank, Seems silly to post these words ,Just my way of letting the world know how much I miss you. Got a new title at Shell Scotford yesterday. They call me a Field Engineer now.

Our Mom passed away April 14th 2009 after a long battle with emphysema. Mom fought this battle with great dignity and grace. Her memory will always be in the hearts of her family and those who had the pleasure of knowing her. I hope this donation eases the battle for those who are now fighting lung disease.

Hi mom, Another year has passed (March 9, 2009) and here I am writing on this wall again...sad that so many more have lost their lives to COPD...that nasty, nasty disease that takes our loved one. So much more has happened mom and I wish every day that you were here with us. Noah and Jacob are both doing well. Noah is handsome and reminds me so much of you and he looks like you if you can believe it!!

It is so hard... We had our plans and it didn't happen. You did everything you could but the lung disease was too much. Yes I'm scared. I now have to fight this pulmonmary fibrosis without you. I will do everything I can Shirley to live some of our dreams. But I wish you were beside me... There is one star shining a little brighter in the sky tonight. Your Rae of Sunshine

My father died two years ago from lung cancer and he didn't even smoke!! I think it must have been from secondhand smoke or something else, because I don't understand how it. I don't think it's fair that I had to lose something so special to me, from something he didn't even do. People who do smoke are still living today and I had to lose someone who never did and it's not fair!! I hate smoking, and most

The doctor had called her to go into the office for the results on December 2nd she made an a
December 6, 2008

It's been 2 years since you left us, but the pain is still so fresh and you are missed so much. After being told you had 2 to 5 years before that would happen, we are still in stages of disbelief that you left us only 10 months later. We are thankful that we had those 10 months but even more thankful that you are no longer struggling with that horrible disease. You were always a very special and respected
November 27, 2008

Dad has been gone thirty one years from lung cancer and mom has been gone from copd ten years smokers. I am glad to say as of today i will be smoke free for six years and i do know that if i hadn't quit when i did, I would not be able to breath today. Words cannot describe the lost of not having you with me and my family everyday.

November 12, 2008

Mom, it's been two weeks since you passed away from pulmonary fibrosis. Five weeks since we all found out the horrible news that was to be your fate. You were so tough, determined, and beautiful through all the pain and discomfort you went through. The three of us and dad are having such a hard time grasping the fact that you are actually gone. This all happened so fast, none of us really know what to say

Jordan and I were together from the time I was 15 until 2 weeks before I turned 20 years old on Jan. 10,2007. He was born with premature lungs and always was having asthma attacks and having his lungs collapse almost everytime. Finally on that day while with me at my parents house he had the final asthma attack that cost him his life. Love always and forever, Melissa xoxo

Both of my parents died of lung cancer in the last three years. Mam is almost 3 years gone and dad is nearly 7 months gone from us. To lose the both of them to the dreaded disease cancer is just unbelievable. They will be allways in our thoughts and our prayers. Allways remembered and never forgotten. Someday we will meet again.
