    Sorry you lost your mother George.
    I lost my dad 13yrs ago to the same disease, it had spread to his kidneys, he was dead within 5 days of being diagnosed.
    On a lighter note i have another 7 Christmas cards! ☺

    It was 20 years ago now, and losing one's mother at such a young age can have so much impact, but I have got used to it now.

    The moral of the story is "don't smoke" - never mind the Chancellor the Exchequer putting another 10p on a packet of Benson and Hedges on every Budget day - the fact of the matter is that rich people can still buy them from shops and still get cancer from having 30 a day for 40 years. We don't live too long as it is, so why abuse the time that we already have by polluting one's heart, lungs and kidneys?
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!
