    Mine asking what did he die from, I thought he was taking care of himself very well, last time I typed the message to was doing very well, anyway I'm sorry for ever one lost, nobody told me he was passed away. I don't want to be rude he never liked me. I wish he could see the to improve me. But I know he tried and tried for me see light. But David wherever you are I am trying this New year. I'm really walked a lot today and ate good food, been making healthy wraps and food shopping so much to be paired for the worst in the economy United States, I heard today from one of my groups I heard that take away Medicare is that true, in Feb if that happened are we going to do?

    Here is a link to the posting by Michelle that informed us all of David Heuben's passing:

    To my knowledge there is no actual plan to take away Medicare. It is threatened during national budget talks, but has yet to really happen. It would be disastrous for too many people if it does.
