David,
I am so sorry for your loss.. I don't personally know you but from what I've seen and heard...Adam had a GREATbrother. He was lucky to have such a loving family for what time he did have. You made THAT time count, and that is what matters. Just take a deep breath. You will get through this. Maybe it is destiny that put you where you are today. You are in a pretty good situation to help the cause. I know you know what I mean.

A loving fan that went to your private concert in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.

I remember on Idol when his brother suprised him in the audience and they said he had brain cancer. How awfully sad it was to me. I am very sad to hear of his passing. David is a amazing entertainer and I hope only the best for him and his family. I too have lost quite a few family members to cancer. David live for your brother, keep his memory alive with your love of him..........

As American Idol gets ready to crown a new member of the Idol family - and that should rightly be ADAM LAMBERT - even Adam looks back at the trailblazing that David Cook did in adding some creativity to the Idol stage. I was a David Cook fan from his Living on a Prayer audition for Idol. His love of his brother Adam - with AC on his guitar - wearing bracelets in honour of at children with cancer and his infectious voice and intelligence have certain placed him in great esteem to well mor than 9,000 people, including myself! Bless you and your family David, and keep making "noise." Can't wait to see you on the Idol stage again Wednesday night when ADAM LAMBERT is crowned the new Idol!

Constantine Maroulis paved the way for men like David Cook and Chris Daughtry. I am so sorry for David. I am as huge a fan of his as I am of the incomparable Constantine Maroulis! My name is ANGIE and I love that BIG GREEK GOD!
