Default My brother-in-law: Richard Jurek

My brother-in-law, Richard Jurek of San Marcos, TX passed away early this morning from a brain tumor at the age of 56. He was our daughter Audrey’s Godfather.

He was a hard working, kind person and we are going to miss him dearly. Dick and I had many, many discussions about our airplane and flying in general, at every family gathering over the last 15 years.

I would greatly appreciate any prayers you might be willing to offer up for his soul, his wife Patricia (my wife's sister), and their three children.

Rest in Peace Richard.

DR, I can imagine some of those conversations and hope those and all the memories you and the entire family have of Dick carry you through the tough times. Its the great memories which linger the longest and strongest.

We're thinking of you with such positive energy. Take comfort and take care.

Doug, I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope the pain for you and your family eases with time and the good memories triumph over the hole in your lives you must be all be feeling. Hang in there.

Best thoughts and wishes

I'm so sorry for your family's loss, Doug. I'm closer with my brother-in-law than I am with my own brother. And man, I'm really learning to HATE CANCER with a passion that scares me a little. It's hit so many people I know lately that I'm starting to think about it much more than is healthy for me, really. Cancer researchers are my heroes, as I could never do such work even though it's among the most important frontiers left to conquer. My thoughts are with you and yours this sad day.

Doug, I have a post-it note with Richard's name on it near my monitor. It's been there since you first told us about Richard's cancer. We will continue to think of his family in the coming days.
