TCC member 5toosweet (Abel) has passed away after battling cancer.

I donít know all the details, but just saw it on his Facebook page. I believe he had already beaten cancer once or twice before.

RIP Abel. sad.gif

Man I didn't know this, thanks for sharing the info with us.

I remember joining his baseball breaks on here and dealing with him in the past. Never knew he had cancer. I don't believe he was all that old either, I would venture to say in his 30s.

RIP Abel.

Abel was only 38 years old. Just a few years older than me. I have never had the opportunity to meet him in person but I have chatted with him on numerous occasions. He has been fighting like a champ for years now. The world has lost a great man.

So sad. He was a solid member of this online community. He held wonderful Group breaks and was generous and if I recall correctly he would often add bonus cards to your break bundle to make up for lack of hits.
