Grandpa,

Thanksyou for raising me when my parents sent me away. You were like a father since mine I did not speak to dad. I can easily say that I would be in prison if it were not for you. Thanks for my first fishing trip, trip for my first football game, thanks for treating to the 89 superbowl. Thanks for making me the man I am today, and thank you for talking me out of retaliation against the guy the shot me. You were right, things happen and at least I survived the gunshot wound to the chest.

When Hurrican Katrina hit the Gulf Coast and you went missing from New Orleans, not knowing your whereabouts, my heart went heavy thinking you were dead. For two weeks, I volunteered at numerous evacuees shelters the flooding into Houston, Texas to try to locate you. I thought you were dead, and nothing I could do, because of the closing of New Orleans, Louisiana, I could not drive back and take action to try to search for you. When I did here from you, everything was better knowing my gramps was okay.

Then only a year later, I got more bad news of your health.

In November, when I got news that you were in ICU, I held my faith, thinking you would be okay, and that the simple surgery that was scheduled to be performed on was nothing of great concern. But within a day later, they canceled your surgery because of a discovery of the hole in your heart. Even down to the last day, you were full of life, and the nurse even had to tell you to keep it down because you were watching out Indianapolis Colts win. Then, in a matter of a day or so, the doctor told us that you were not going to make it and going into the hospice. I'm glad that you didn't stay there long, and you left us within a few hours after.

Grandpa, I love you old man and wish you were hear... you are still the only person that I could have depended om to listen to my goods and bads without judging me.

We finally made it to the SuperBowl grampa!

I'll see you when the time comes Gramps.

Hey Denney , hope your up there casting for the one that got away or that buck with the huge 12 point rack.

a peice about him from the paper ( not it's entirity and last names removed)

The best man

A toast to Denney Fouchey

By Audra Quinn

C & G Staff Writer

     Madison Heights resident Denney  has had a leg removed, a tumor taken out of his chest, and a lung trampled, but doctors have not been able to remove his kindred spirit.

     At 17, Denney lost his left leg in a motor vehicle accident. Friends say he carried on like a fighter, maintaining his athletic lifestyle on the golf course, the lake, and the bike trail. “His favorite place is up North, where the fishing’s good and nature’s beauty is abundant,” said Stacey, a dear friend of Denney’s.

      In January 2003, Denney was deer hunting when he came down with what he thought was a severe cold. “I felt like I was being squeezed by the chest and sweating a lot,” he said. Soon he was struggling to breathe, and drove to the emergency room where he collapsed as soon as he reached the door.

     “I went to the doctors and they took an X-ray and they saw a tumor in my chest between my heart and my lungs. It was about the size of a softball,” Denney said.

     After several rounds of chemo, the tumor was reduced and removed in August 2003. His outlook was positive post-surgery, until devastatingly, his lungs filled with fluid again. Doctors discovered that cancer cells were left behind and were continuing to grow and spread throughout his body. Denney was diagnosed with germ cell cancer.

     “They took a bunch of fluid out of my chest, between my lung and my chest cavity, and it crushed my right lung, so I have to have oxygen to breathe,” he said, pointing to a respirator he has to have with him at all times.

     Currently, Denney is undergoing an aggressive form of chemotherapy, which his doctors have suggested as a last chance to eradicate the cancer successfully. If unsuccessful, he will live out the remainder of his time in Hospice care. Unfortunately, the experimental procedure is not cheap, and as the medical bills build, Denney’s morale has diminished.

this was done for a fund raiser. a few months before he died.

note -------- they wanted to do radiation ( pinpoint ) but because he was a pot smoker they couldn't due to the effects pot had on his lungs.

he died October 24th 2004 age 36.

July 02, 2007 will be the day that we lay my Step-Grandmother to rest.  Last year, she suffered a stroke that robbed her of speech and easy movement.  Despite that, her good cheer, and lively personality refused to break, and she shone with Joy and Life until last week, when she gently slipped into a coma after two days of refusing to eat... and faded from this world... but not our memories.

Fates bless, thee Grandma Gibbs.

In memory of my dear Father who passed away May 9th 2007.

This will be my first Father's day without you Dad. Feels so strange that there won't be any presents for you except for flowers on your grave. There is an empty place inside that only you could fill. I miss your humor, your wisdom, and love. I'm looking after Mom like I know you wanted. Tears fall when I think of the times our family shared together and now we share them without you. I know you have found peace my shining star. Some day we shall meet again.

One of my fathers freinds who worked at the Windows of the World resturant at the World Trade Center in New York City. She died in 2001 on the day of the attack. I had never known her, but from what I've heard, she was very nice and loved her job original.gif My father was actually supposed to be at the World Trade Center that day to meet her, but his trip was cancelled dontgetit.gif Anyway, all her freinds and family miss her, and I pray for them.

My grandfather, who died in 1997 of heart problems. I remember I used to love visiting his apartment, and I loved him very much. He was a good man, and I wish he had been around longer. I miss him to this day.
