Anyone remember my husband Ian "Charlie" Gill (ZM, Cancer and the End of a Dream)? Here he is with my mother at the Boston Marathon.

Yes Michelle! Ian is now unstoppable. His "CHI" and gear are now on walls and rocks across America and beyond. He was at the Marathon and guided the family safely. And Ian is LUCKY to have YOU in his corner. The PRIDE and LOVE obvious. True love IS forever..

I don't know why I asked "Anyone remember...." Of course I know you all do. Sometimes my worst fear is that he will be forgotten.

Never.

Sadly, even as the list grows, no one will be forgotten.
