Thanks Simon and Vanessa, I tried to copy paste from Facebook, but failed, even got Shirley to photo the page, and still can't post it.

Sincere condolences to both families. Elajai

Condolences to both families.

I have also signed Kevs petition as even though I am unsure about a screening programme it may at the very least raise awareness.

I have now closed my list of names ready for this years service of Remembrance at our local All Souls Service next Sunday, 30th October.

They WILL ALL be remembered by the lighting of some candles, plus an extra candle for previous years.

God Bless you all, and as a famous comedian used to finish with, "May your God go with you ".

I don't know if I will carry this on for the future as most of us oldies have lost all our friends, I think that there are only a couple of stalwarts from B2PCa still around, but I will still take a note of names even if they aren't listed.

God Bless

Someone has to take up the cudgels. This service is invaluable to those who wish to pay their respects

Ten years since diagnosis, seven years of good QOL - last two years hell.

I was once Spartacus - but my body is weak now. Cancer will be the victor with the ultimate irony that after it has has killed me, destroyed my family, denied me of 25 years or so of travelling, food enjoyment etc, the sheer irrelevance of its purpose means that all its little brain dead cancer cells will die too. GOOD!!!

Chris totally agree with Bazza, You do a fantastic job and if it wasn't for you where would all of these wonderful Dads, Brothers ,

Sons , Uncles be remembered.

Long live the Exbus page , you have got my vote.

Well, we had a 'good' service yesterday, our local All Souls Memorial Service, and it was the first time with a new Vicar who actually mentioned The Prostate Cancer Sufferers.

If anyone would like to see the service sheet then message me and I will try to put it out on the PC Facebook thread.

ABSENT FRIENDS 6 will start in a new thread, but only if I know names and dates, so you all know how to contact me.

God Bless you all, and all the Widows, and families of our Absent Friends, your men folk WILL be remembered.

God Bless
