For Gary....


Gary Cormier passed away on March 30, 2012. Gary had Stage 4 Colon cancer which was diagnosed in November 2007...


I want to extend my deepest condolences to the Cormier family....The world has lost a wonderful person, so upbeat and happy and much too young ...late 50's....His colorful outfits a reflection of a wonderful personality...he will be missed...

He always was so positive even when we talked a few times about having Colo-rectal cancer, he always looked forward & up...He loved God and had so much faith...it sustained him...... it sustained him during some very tough times...
Stage 4 colon cancer is the hardest of all times...I know that Gary suffered immensely and was in alot of pain....


I find it spiritual as well as sad that Gary's passing comes at the end of the Colo-Rectal Cancer Awareness month..  So in memory of Gary, I will take this opportunity to once again stress this....

Early detection is the answer....
Be sure and get your colonoscopy!

If you are 50 or older, please make that appointment... 
It can save your life....if you have it in your family you can get it at 40....so please do that!!

RIP Gary,,,you have earned it...

Colon cancer and cancer of the rectum usually begin as a small polyp. cancer all types are very danger for human life. This is good information sharing.
