    RIP Pat Smullen

    Pat died today from a battle with pancreatic cancer.

    Terrible. Rest easy, Pat, and thanks for the memories.

    We have tumbled, as though through error, into a world which by all evidence was not intended for us. We cling to a fragment of a grain of sand until such time as the chill of death shall return us to primal matter. We strut for a tiny moment upon a tiny stage, well knowing that all our aspirations are doomed to ultimate failure and that everything we have achieved will perish with our race leaving the universe as though we had never existed.

    Very sad, He threw everything at it too but that type of cancer is cruel alright. Only seen him live at galway but he gave me a great night out when he won the Derby . With all the money he raised too there should be some sort of system here to acknowledge people like him

    It's a terrible cancer. I know so many that have died from it.
