With deep sadness,,,,,,dagwud

Dag and I had exchanged emails a few times...directions and parking suggestions for the ball game where he caught the foul ball and such. Just late this past summer.

We haven't heard from him for a while and I figured that his situation had worsened. I met him once as he came to my farm sale. Yes he was way too young to be passing.

I'm saddened in hearing that.

 

In real life I'm notoriously awkward in dealing with sickness and death so really didn't engage with him a great deal about his health.

 

But I did admire the way he approached it.

I am very sorry to hear that.  Noticed that he had not been on here lately but never dreamed of this.  Having survived that beast twice and just had minor surgery 3 months ago for a skin cancer, I can relate to what he was going through but not the ultimate end of days since I never had to go through any of that.  Thought he was a very nice guy and not fanatical about his politics.  Very sad!

That`s very sad news, I hoped that he could beat it.  Dagwud was a real class act that took the high road everytime.

Re: With deep sadness,,,,,,dagwud

That makes me really sad.  He was one guy around here that I felt I almost always agreed with...and he was able to be courteous in the face of insults and accusations.  It was an honor to know him here.  He will be missed.

Sorry to hear that.

Always enjoyed dag's posts he was always couteous and did not land in extreme areas of any subject but put forward a reasoned and thoughtfull response.

 

Guess I expected this outcome from some of his posts about his treatments.

 

Thanks for posting this bruce, I would not have known where to find that info.

 

He will be missed on this site.

I would have loved to have met the man. I tried to follow his illness on here but this was a bit unexpected for me.  He was an icon on here and will be missed.
