Default Parrot Pop

It is with deep regret that I tell you of the passing of Parrot Pop this a.m. from Panceatic Cancer after a courageous fight. You would of loved to have met him and many people have on our cruises and land vacations.. Last October we did a dream cruise on the Celebrity Equinox from Rome to Rome which was on October 18th where we celebrated our 55th wedding anniversary. Although, walking with a rollator it never stopped him from seeing the Pyramids, Sphynx and then in Israel the Wall, Yad Vashem and the Chagall Windows and in Italy The Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, etc. etc.. We were both lucky... we loved to travel, especially cruising.

Sandra,

I am so sorry to learn of your husband's passing. It's so hard to lose one's spouse after so many years and as one who has had to deal with the same issue one year ago the 8th of next month, I do so much share your pain.

God Bless!

So sorry, I had no idea he was ill. Cancer touches all our lives, one day maybe they will find out what it is. I hope his passing was smooth.

Now that Steve Jobs has died of Pancreatic Cancer as did Parrot Pop MAYBE, just maybe the researchers will be allowed to find a cure for this uncurable disease.

I can understand your loss very well. After 69 years of loving each other I miss Helen as I am sure you miss yours.

Each morning as I wake my arm falls over to her side of the bed and she is not there. It is an awful feeling.

There are so many questions I have for him...and how to reset the radio, what is our new pass number for online banking..We were always together, Len and Sandra...shopping (he loved to shop), going out to eat, at home, movies...but memories. On the lighter side as a rabid Red Sox fan I'll tell him when I last see him Monday that the Yankees lost

I have been traveling, so I'm just now reading this sad news. It was so nice meeting y'all on the trans-Atlantic cruise. You are right, Parrot Pop was "quite a character"! I can only imagine your sadness. Sending you a hug and prayers.
