Jenni Murray is right.
My uncle Jose died of cancer. I've known others who've been stricken by cancer. Their death is not a failure to fight. On the contrary, cancer patients teach all of us a lesson in courage and dignity.
RIP Robin Gibb. Your family should be very proud of the way that you handled the last few months of your life.
P.S. We remember "This is where I came in" one of Robin's lead vocals and the title song from The Bee Gees' last album:
I lie and you lie And who would get the sharpest knife
This is the danger zone This is where I came in
I could never make a move on a woman that leads me on
Its a little too late and the wolf is on the run
