I found out what it was. It wasn't kevin who's sick.. Was someone I worked with and who was really close to a lot of them. Kendra Kennedy. She just passed from cancer very recently.

Wise up Pav, you tool. I originally posted this thread and was disconcerted by the lack of responses hence my above quote.It's a bit sad the amount of people who took the time to respond to my quote above (setting aside their cognitive abilities) instead of just using this thread to give some positive words for Randleman.
