    This was at the BMT forum this morning. I am so sorry to have to bring it here.

    “It hurts to bring you this on such a beautiful day. But I am grateful that this beast can no longer trouble him. He is with his God. Nancy
    said he was a trouper. There were some undisclosed liver problems and the induction chemo proved too much for his organs. He had fifteen days only and that was not enough time for his stem cells to engraft. There is no certainty that the transplant could have saved him considering the liver issues.

    She is very thankful for our support and will advise me of the funeral arrangements at a later date. You Listmates have been wonderful during
    this tragic time and I want to thank you as well. I am comforted by all the love I find here every day.”

    What a shame, such a good guy. I just don’t have to words to explain how sad I feel for Dennis and his family, and also to all the people on the site who have been following his battle with this horrible disease. It is a sad day.

    It certainly is a sad day. What a shock ! With Dennis’ wonderful attitude, I was sure that he would have healthy results. The world will be a sadder place without him.

    I have lost a friend and inspiration, and I am blessed that he shared his journey and humor with me.

    So sad. He was certainly one of the good ones. Now he can be at peace.

    My heart goes out to Dennis’ family. Don’t know if Nancy will see this but pray that this verse will bring some comfort:
    The Lord my Lord is my salvation
    I will not be afraid
    The Lord is my strength and my song
    He has become my salvation — Isaiah 12.2

    As I was out with mom all day today my thoughts kept turning to Dennis, wondering how he was doing, praying he was engrafting. I’m sad. Prayers for Nancy and the family.

    I am very sad to hear of Dennis’ passing. Although I never had the chance to meet him, I found the lightness and the uncomplaining spirit in his posts so wonderful.

    My husband also is an organist, and that was a point of connection I felt with him.

    My heart goes out to him and his family. May you find some peace now that this battle no longer has to be fought.
