I just learned my great uncle Smiley has lung cancer and has maybe a year left to live. It's not suprising given the fact that he has been smoking at least since I was alive and who knows how much before that. Part of me is surprised that it's not cirrhosis of the liver since he is pretty much an alcoholic as well.

This will be the first MAJOR family member to pass away since my grandfather passed when I was in the fourth grade.
