I have just learned that my neighbour and weekend relief manager, Herb Gee, passed away at 4:40 this afternoon. He was a man that I admired very much and who was always ready and willing to help his neighbours. Last September he won six gold medals for sprinting even though he was suffering from a cough that the doctor told him was nothing to worry about. By the end of October he was diagnosed with a very aggressive lung cancer. It has been very difficult to watch this strong vibrant man's health deteriorate so quickly and very difficult to process that it is happening. I am glad that he is at peace now and did not suffer for too long. I have missed his presence in the building since he went into respite care a month ago. He just turned 69 on January 5th.
