Memoriam: Paul "Wog" Kuettel

I was tipped off be an E-Mail to the SPIF list, and then caught the posting at True North.

Paul "Wog" Kuettel has passed.

His final post was October 21, and he had a feeling he was close to the end:
MRI found a growing mass on the liver, so I got a CT which doesn't tell if it is cancerous. So off to the U of M I go next week for another MRI, bloodwork, and perhaps a biopsy. The way I feel really makes whether it is the big C a moot point.

Suffice it to say that nowadays I am very inactive, sleep a lot and my mind is consumed with worry that this is close to the end.

I'm not ready, but I guess I never will be.
This is a toughy. He had been feeling better last time I saw him, but that was late Summer. It's difficult to type, I may have more in the morning.

All my hopes to his friends and family!

Cheers, Wog!! You will be missed
