This is very sad news. Her children will be in my prayers. I am very sorry to hear this.

Rest in peace.

Such very sad news ...~

John ???
"the bird doesn’t care who it craps on."
Whatever does this mean or have to do with this sad news?
It just seems a bit distasteful to me, but maybe you didn't mean it the way I'm perceiving it ???

Guess I'm just a bit disappointed in seeing it as part of this announcement~

guess that comment is just a crude way (to me) of saying that disasters or diseases...such as
cancer do not discriminate

Dead on . . .
And it should be crude
because it stinks.

Yes, John, cancer sucks. I do understand your sentiment. But that comment really jars the reader because Dana's attitude and language was never crude (not publicly anyway) and so it might strike some readers as an inappropriate comment.
We lost a really great caregiving soul.

She was never crude
and she didn't smoke
and she still died of lung cancer at 44.
Up the road there's a clinic with
a cancer ward for children, children.
It stinks.
