July 29, 2011 Paul passed away after a painful battle with metastatic melanoma cancer. I wish I was a climber and could reach out to you all somehow, but all I can do is run for him, for Ruth. In their memory I raised over $1450 for melanoma cancer research by running a marathon March 2014, at the LA Marathon. Now I created a "Virtual Birthday Run" to continue to raise money for melanoma research. It's my new mission in life, to bring awareness to this type of cancer and encourage people to get their skin checked every year and to keep doing self exams on your skin every few months.

The info for the fundraiser is at www.virtualbirthdayrun.blogspot.com And if you feel so inclined to donate or to participate by hiking and counting your miles towards the 13.1 miles for the medal, please feel free to do so. I run 13.1 miles on my birthday. I did it for the first time on my bday last year, this year I am making it into the best birthday gift I could receive... donations for the Melanoma Research Foundation www.melanoma.org

Take care of your skin! And in Paul's words, "Belay on!" (hope I spelled that right! lol)God bless!

I think of Paul so often.
So this is his birthday.
I will raise a cuppa tea and then some more
I will carry him with me always. He literally showed me the way when I was hurting.

I had only been here a little while before Paul's passing, I did not ever have contact with him on here directly but these threads of his had an impact on myself and I'm sure many others here. Even though his threads may only pop up a few times a year I'm sure many here think of him more often. Hope you and your family are well.

I very happy he lives on in the memories of those who knew him, even if only through the internet. His personality was bigger than life. He didn't even realize how bright his light shone. He was like a magnet, people were just drawn to him.

@ Burch, good thing you went in! I had a small amount taken off my thigh. It was a "severe a-typical" mole. But as Paul would say, "When in doubt cut it out!" I was happy to get it off me!

July I do a virtual run to support Melanoma Research in Paul and Ruth's memory. Check out my newest site, to help honor their memory and make an impact in the arena of melanoma research:

I have raised almost $400 this year for the Melanoma Research Foundation!

That's funny, I have an appointment today. A follow up on the removal of my first superficial basal cell carcinoma; the dermatologist and I have begun a regular relationship.

I can't say enough about Paul and the impact he had on my life.

I had great joy in meeting him and Ruth.

Forever in my chalk bag, but more importantly, in my heart.
