I was in girl scouts for one meeting. Then I realized I don't like forced socialization with people who most likely annoy me, ha!

Her father died of cancer. I don't recall what type of cancer he had. Cancer is hereditary. There has been no substantial link to smoking causing lung cancer.

That did happen for a minute, but this thread didn't exist when Topix was linked to the Tribune. And maybe other sites, I doubt the Florida peeps posted on the Trib, but I could be wrong. We lost a lot of people after the split, the letters had like over a hundred posts per day. But I guess it doesn't really matter.
And there is no big deal, some people are just convinced the world is out to get them. It's a medical condition called paranoia. There's medication for that now. Maybe a certain someone should make an appointment with his doctor?
Yeah, that's it- some people quit posting when the Trib dumped Topix. The Florida 'peeps' couldn't find the thread when the Trib had it but, NOW they can! You, Jung man, have a medical condition called "retardation". Good luck with that!

This florida peep read dear Abby in the Trib owned Orlando Sentinel. Fort Lauderdale's Sun Sentinel is also owned by the tribune. Dear Abby column in all the publications linked to a common Dear Abby Topix thread. So yeah, we were posting to the same place before Tribune Media ended relationship with topix.

Lung cancer.

She was laid off the end of September and hadn't been feeling well. Her BF, Nick pushed her to see her regular doctor for a check up in the beginning of October. She sounded like she thought it was going to be a respiratory infection or something.

It was "or something"

I hear you. My birthday is this week. I have always enjoyed celebrating it with my family, but am having a hard time getting enthusiastic about it this year.
I will find a way to celebrate that 1) honors our friendship and 2) acknowledges that I am alive (this being most important). Still, just weird this year.
Honey Bear - Ang LOVED her birthday. She died less than 2 weeks before her birthday, which was Feb. 5. She really wanted to make it until then.
I will find a way to
First I wanna say, happy birthday. I know how you are feeling. I lost a very dear friend and coworker, Feb 12 of last year. She died in a house fire. Both her and her husband. 3 days after that one of my best friends 22 year old son was killed in a snowmobile accident. It was a really bad time. Believe me when I say, I know how you feel. I think it's really special that you choose to honor your friend on your birthday. It sounds like that's what she would want. Hugs to you, and happy birthday.

She had liver cancer that spread to her lungs, if memory serves me. That's why they didn't treat her. Survival rates were not good with cancer that spreads from the liver to the lungs, even with treatment.

I remember when she told us at first and my thinking that maybe there was at least some hope ... until I did some research myself.

It's too bad.

I know it was in the media because he was very demonstrative about it, but it seemed to me he mostly got made fun of cause he wasn't very good.

Wow, spewing insults and vitriol. How out of character for you. This didn't get old years ago or anything. Keep it up, you're so entertaining to a lot of us

I think many of the Tebow jokes were about his religious posing and alway's way too positive attitude.....did you ever see the classic skit on SNL, of God in Tebow's locker room?....Very Funny.....

Jess- that came out ambiguously. It should be just how long the group ha known each other, for good or ill.

Kind of like a favorite bar where you can run a perpetual tab

I did and it was funny, but Gene was talking about the media picking on him. I don't recall the media picking on him because of his religion ... at least no one in the mainstream. It was talked about for sure.

I just talked to her best friend. She said that Ang had great ideas, but follow through was not her strong suit, so unfortunately no.
We know she loved Queen and Heart, though :)
