News about DaveP
« on: July 23, 2007, 11:54:00 am »
Dear Dividing Line Community Members,

Iím afraid I have some bad news to deliver. I just learned that our friend and popular DLBN DJ, Dave Plummer is in the hospital and has been diagnosed with cancer. As you know, he recently announced that heíd be taking a short break from doing his show for health reasons. By the sound of it, I doubt he even knew at that time exactly what he is dealing with. I donít have many details but apparently his prognosis isnít good. The cancer has spread from his colon to his liver. Iím sure you will all join me in keeping Dave in our thoughts and prayers as we respect his familyís privacy in this dark time. Updates will be posted here and on our message board as information is received. I donít know what else to say.

This was posted this evening by DaveP's wife to the DLBN Mailing list...


Thank you all so much for you concern and support. I want you all to
know how much DLBN meant to Dave, both the listeners and djs. It is
amazing to me still how close I feel to so many people I have never met
in person.

Dave passed this evening............there are no right words right
now. It has been an incredibly hard week and there are so very many
people that Dave has touched, I can't begin to tell you the amount of
support and love me and my family are receiving. For the specifics, it
was a rare aggressive cancer that spread quicker than the tests came
back and certainly quicker than any doctor there expected.

Dave found a home here at DLBN and I wanted you all to know how much
you meant to him. If the DJ's don't mind, and I can figure out his
backasswards way of programming here, I would like to do a memorial
show for him sometime in the future. Until then I will let you all
toast him in your own ways and remember him for the wonderful man he
was to so many people.

Hi folks,

 

Iíve had a number of requests for information about DavePís funeral service, where to send flowers or donations, etc. Mysti sent me the link to his obituary. All of the information is there.

Dave's ceremony was incredible.  I was amazed at how many folks' lives he'd touched.  Lot's of folks I haven't seen since High school showed up.  Amazing person, Dave.  And MUCH loved.  Folks, I don't mean to preach, but GET A COLONOSCOPY if you are over 40 yrs. old.  PLEASE!
