    My grandpa did the same thing. He battled bone cancer for 4 years until he had all of grandma's finances and future taken care of so that she had nothing to worry about after he was gone. He finally passed about a month after the final arrangements were done.

    Well after a couple of weeks he texted back.
    He works at the company that has all the tools his dad had.
    He is happy and still working.

    Been away from Ck5 for a while. Both parents have cancer right now- one in texas, one here in so cal. Crazy and difficult times. I lost an old friend last week whom i hadnt caught up with for almost 2 years. Was really suprised to hear he had cancer and did not reach out to me or some of the guys from work.

    Anyway renewed my membership, and thought i would check up here and see what was going on with Rob. I just read through the last 8-10 pages here and am sad to find out he is gone. RIP

    Lucas you wont remember me but i had the pleasure of meeting your Dad a few times. Hadnt seen him in person since you guys were at the house in Lakewood. I grew up in that same neighborhood! I remember you crawling up the fence and running across the roof of the garage and all over the top of the connex containers while your pops was showing off some of the new equipment...

    I Only met your dad because of this website, and because he was looking for some help to finish a few projects that he wanted to do for you. I hadnt texted him for a while, but always wanted to get to know him better- Am sorry i wont get the chance. He was a good guy and was inspiring to be around. Lots of people here willing to help if you ever need something.

    Ya know, reading your post I just thought of something. We are all getting older and a lot of us were not exactly kind to our bodies over the years. We used to bust Rob’s chops over his spelling. But later on when it would get bad we all kind of knew something was going on again. So let’s watch out for one another, both here and IRL. It may not be spelling, but when you see a change in a friend we owe it to them to say something. It could be nothing, but it could be an illness, or even depression. Stay safe my brothers.

    Thought about him today. I made sure that I cleaned off all of my weld splatter so he wouldn’t be pissed looking down here. Lol
