Damn. Damn. Damn. Cancer s**ks. And here I am, the blogger who thinks can write about everything, yet I am speechless.
Yes, Cancer Dude, Jeffrey Walker, businessman, musician, artist, family-man @radiowalker who fought and beat cancer so many times had one too many battles to fight, and he lost this last one. Last night he passed away.

Let’s give him strength again. I know that somehow, he will see your comments on his blog. Its a wonderful way to reach out to us too, his family.
Let’s say our final Good Bye to Jeffrey over on his blog.

Update:I thought this tribute by another guitarist would be a fitting Good Bye: Only the Good Ones Die Young.
