    Im truly sorry to hear this, as lung cancer is a horrible way to die. I watched several of my family and friends die of it and none of them passed away quickly or painlessly.

    Its the reason I quit smoking Dec 31, 1993 and got into bodybuilding. My doctor told me if I didn't quit smoking, I would be carrying around an oxygen tank. I immediately pictured my grandfather carrying around his tank the last few years of his life. That image of him scared me so bad, I got into w8lifting to help curb my urge to smoke. It was the only New Year's Resolution I ever kept.

    THAT is remarkable!!!

    He never missed a game in almost 50 years. WOW!!!!

    THAT is a True Cowboys Fan!!!!!!!!!!!:bow:

    RIP Amigo.:pray:

    I always enjoyed cbz40's articles and thoughts. He always carried himself with character, honesty, openess, fair play and getting guys to be nice to each other on the cowboys boards. Will miss you my friend. I am sure that you will get to meet other cowboys fans up in heaven, and root the cowboys on.

    The audio was pretty cool. I didn’t really know him personally but he seemed like a nice person that everyone respected. My thoughts go out to his friends and loved ones.

    I didn't exchange but a reply or two with Cbz40 over the years, but the guy was First Class. He was always upbeat. You will be missed big guy. God bless the Parkhill family.

    Ya know, knowing Cbz, he'd even let Redskin fans in...well, maybe after giving them a bit of a hard time...

    ok, I'm blown away by this.

    all of you didn't know this, but Weldon was actually a Family friend of ours in Denison, Tx. He was neighbors and friends of my uncle, Dad, and grandfather. He was a musician and played with my Grandfather and uncle in his younger days. used to be over at their house all the time.

    I just emailed my Uncle to let him know. I know this will be a big blow.

    this is not what I wanted to read this morning. RIP

    I've not been in a position to post anything since this sad news emerged. Very sad. This was a man who knew the truth of the words "A soft answer turns away wrath." His classy behavior was always a reminder of the need to check emotions, to consider carefully any urge to lash out. He was a man who knew, obviously, that all of these avatars, all of these nicknames -- there are people behind every one. There are people with hopes, dreams, responsibilities, loved ones.

    In an Internet forum, it is easy to forget the flesh and the blood. It is easy to forget the need for civility. It is easy to forget there are men and women.

    I didn't know this man at all, but I knew he had a big heart, and I knew he was a gentleman. He showed those characteristics, every day, in a forum in which it is so very, very easy to be otherwise.

    His death leaves a hole that won't be replaced. I hope all of us keep him in mind any time we start to post something harsh or lacking in civility and grace.

    That would be the ideal tribute.
