Update on Audiogon Member Almarg


I have some very sad news and information to share.

Al ( @almarg ), through his wife Margaret, asked me to post the following...

{"The attached letter to you was dictated at his bedside to me earlier today. I hope I got his words down precisely as he desired."}

"Unfortunately Al has an extremely aggressive form of Mantle Cell Lymphoma coupled with a mutation of gene TP53 (known as tumor suppressor gene). He has received outstanding advanced treatment with the latest and greatest chemo drugs at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale in New Haven. Unfortunately it appears that he only has a few weeks to live.

Please feel free to post a substantive update [on Audiogon]. He has not been able to do that because of his condition. Please indicate that he has enjoyed solving problems, researching others,’ and learning a good deal himself while developing his answers.

He and I wish everyone all the best of health and success in audio endeavors, in that order.

Al [and Margaret]

I will post my very personal response tomorrow.

Sad news indeed. God bless and prayers to the entire family.
This is very sad news! Al’s wisdom and gracious thoughts will surely be missed on this forum.
May my prayers and gratitude go out to you and Margaret. Your knowledge and kindness will always be with us my friend.
I wept when I read this sad news. Plus, plus, to all the eloquent statements to you Al—May God bless you and Margaret—I pray for a miracle for you. mikirob 
A good man.  He will be missed.
Prayers for the family. Very sad news indeed.  I know I can speak for all of us. Al is a true gentleman and I always enjoyed reading his very informative posts. He took the time to give great detailed responses that most of us never would think about.  he will be missed greatly.
