We lost one of the really good ones.

A really special team - Casey Cosgrove and his supporters.

Casey Cosgrove passed away at Carpenter Hospice where he was taken into their care on Monday.

Those of us who communicated with Casey on his Caring Bridge page knew the end was near when Bryna  sent out the most recent message.

She said at that time: “For those of you who follow this blog regularly, you may remember that we were told many years ago that the average life span of someone with his diagnosis was 18-24 months…and that was 6 years ago. We are truly thankful for not only all that extra time that we had to laugh with him, but that he was remarkably healthy and active for almost all of it.

The boys won the bet - the daughter got a kiiss and a pink mustache of her own.

“We will take these days ahead to spend time together as a family and reflect and enjoy the moments we have with each other with as much positivity as we can.”
Much love…Bryna

This is the time to grieve the loss – tomorrow we can celebrate one of the really good ones.

    My thought and prayers are with Bryna and the kids. Casey was involved in so many facets of Burlington life, he always had helpful suggestions to those who asked (including me) Although I did not know him well, I will miss him.

    Never met Casey, but I know he volunteered a lot with CogecoTV. Seemed like Casey was they type of community-minded citizen we should all strive to be more like.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the Cosgrove family. Casey was truly a real good one. No Casey was a great one. RIP

    I didn’t know Casey really well but in the interactions I had with him years ago when he ran for Council I found him to be a gracious, caring and sincere individual with a real knack for communication.

    He was a credit to the community, and he will certainly be missed.
