It doesn't seem petty at all. I don't believe we can make comparisons like that because we never know who's next.

I'll second that. We lost one of our cats (Ernie-picture in Helix Pets) to intestinal lymphoma last September and I'm being treated for lung cancer that hid out in a lymph node from 2010 until early this year. Too many folks we all know have friends and loved ones fighting cancer and it totally sucks.
