Uncle Danny sounds like he was a wonderful man! My prayers go out to all his family and friends.

My humans used to do the Relay for Life every year back in Canada. They haven't found any similar here in Munich, but they still make donations to the Canadian Cancer Society since my dad's mom is a breast cancer survivor and my mom's dad is a prostate cancer survivor.

You have my deepest condolences. Sending you many purrs.
