I've been pallbearer at my Father In Law's funeral in February; my aunt's funeral in March, and a week later her husband, my uncle, passed away so his funeral was in April. No we just found out that one of my childhood friends, Bert, who was our bass player in our band back when we were teens and young adults, has terminal cancer. It started as prostate cancer, then spread to his lungs, liver, and now bones. He said the docs gave him 3 months and wants us to get the old band back together for one last jam session before he goes. I'm arranging that now. Bert and I are the same age and he said he isn't doing chemo -why bother he added. In late December 2017 my cousin ten years younger than I passed away from cancer so it has been a quite a year so far and it's only half way thru.
