Handling asbestos

In another forum I go into, I found a sobering wakeup call this morning, and thought I'd pass it on. This post was submitted by the member's wife-- a member that used to come in on a daily basis, but hasn't been around for a while. Now we know why.

Thank-you and Good-bye

This is Ian Gilham's wife. He asked me to tell the posters here that he has greatly enjoyed his interactions since he joined and respects your level of care and help for one another. Though he hasn't posted in a while, he continues to get email from posters with particular questions from this and other sites, which i try to redirect to this site or similar.
Ian has mesothelioma, leaving only a few hours/days to live before he finds out what, if anything, is on the other side. He urges that you all handle suspected asbestos with a great deal of care on this side, however.

"Whether you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right."

That is very Sobering and very sad, it hurts to lose one of our own,particularly one with a kind heart that wanted to help those he could and did so at every opportunity.
My Condolances to his family and friends.
The trade is just that much less without him.

When in doubt check it out.
If the news aint great you must Abate!!!

Bill pass on my sincere condolances to the other crew for thier loss, I'm sure its being taken hard.
TIP YOUR TILE MAN, His Retirement plan is not nearly as lucrative as yours and his waning years will be far more painful to boot.
He gives much so you can have a Beautiful Home!!
