The first post in the thread:

Hello everyone, this is Tracy and I am Joe's wife.  I wanted to let you all know that last week Joe was put into hospice.  The doctors keep telling us that he does not have long but they can't put a specific time frame on it.  I didn't know who to tell so that is why I am doing a general post.

This board has ment so much to him, he was always on here and it helped him think about things other than being sick.  Joe is the biggest football fan I have ever know and loved to debate all the latest stuff.  Thank you for all of the support and encouragement you have given Joe over the last year.

I will check back and pass on any messages to Joe.

Thanks again.

I would highly recommend everyone becoming familiar with Crackburn's story. Truly inspiring stuff.

When the old site goes away will the link no longer work? Is there a way to relocate that thread here to honor Crackburn's legacy (and Joe to a degree)?

The thread will be archived even when the new forum officially launches....the link will still work

 

in talking with Webby, there's no real way to transfer the whole thread

I still remember all of this like it was a few weeks ago. Where does the time go...

It was really inspiring to see us come together as family for one of our own.

My uncle died if pancreatic cancer in 2004 and I was following the message board the whole time just never joined.

That was such an inspiring story. Just Joes humbleness, attitude, outlook. And his wife was a true gem updating everyone throughout the whole process. 

But the way this forum got together and got him to meet Joe Thomas his favorite football player is honestly so touching. It's reminds me of Tuesdays with Maury. It's just amazing how authentic people can be even over the web.

I still remember the first time I read Crackburn's post saying that he had just been diagnosed with Stage 3 Pancreatic Cancer.  I didn't know him at the time, but it still hit me like a kick in the stomach.  The whole ordeal was sad but very uplifting at the same time.  I will always be a fan of Joe Thomas after what he did for them too.

My Chef was told yesterday that he has pancreatic cancer. He is only 49 years old.

It’s crazy that when I heard about the news, apart of me thought about Joe (crakburn) as well, considering that is what took his life.

Cancer is horrible.
