My brother Pat, known hereabouts as MonkeyMensch, died earlier today. He had glioblastoma multiforme*. As he pointed out, if you get to choose which cancer you’re going to get, this is NOT the one to pick.
I know he really enjoyed the time he spent reading and contributing to the SDMB. He’s the reason I was a long time lurker here. In real life Pat was smart, and funny, and inquisitive, and knowledgable, and fun to be around.
He will be missed by me and my siblings and, I suspect, by anyone that knew him well.
Thanks to everybody here who interacted with him and to these boards that gave him a lot of pleasure.
*His tumor may explain why he had a couple of odd posts recently.
