My sincere condolences to you and your friends. May your grief be eased by the love and respect of your friends. Life can throw us curves when we least expect it.

Cancer can be extremely slow to kill and it can blindside you and kill in days or weeks.

My best friend, the love of my life, my second wife; went slow. She had a 6 year bout with four recurrences of non Hodgkins lymphoma. She underwent two courses of chemo and one course of a non conventional treatment. We thought we had it beat but it came back a fourth time and took her out in two weeks.

I also had a friend and fellow worker who was just one month younger than me who went incredibly fast. His wife called us the gold dust twins. We had both retired from the company where we worked together and both started our own consulting businesses. We kept up our relationships, both personal and business, after we left the company. I had not talked to him for a few weeks due to both of us being "on the road" on business. When I called him I got his wife who told me that he had passed on just a couple of days ago. He started having low back pains and thought he might have a kidney infection so he went to his doctor. The doctor found that he had kidney cancer and it was so aggressive that he was gone in less than two weeks after the diagnosis.

I don't know which is worse, the shock of sudden death or the agony of a long drawn out illness leading to death.

Observer1: So very sorry for your loss! Although I'm so glad you were with him until the end of this chapter in his journey. In the weeks & months to come-there will be solace in this.

I'm glad you were blessed with such a wonderful friendship.

I believe he's in a awesome place now. Happy & content. He's gonna keep an eye on you and you will feel his presence from time to time.

He will never be far.

Sorry again for your loss & blessings to you.

NCB.

So sorry to hear of your loss. I have lost three dear friends so far, two to cancer. The one bright spot is that cancer gives us the chance to say those things we most need and want to say before it is to late. You are blessed to have had such a great friend..

Observer1, thank you for that beautiful tribute to your friend.

I've been where you are now. Too many times. Lord...

Time helps. It does. The pain subsides a little and we remember the best times.

But some things can bring it all back and when that happens you just have to manage as you can.

Damn... Tearing up. Better stop now.

Just keep in mind that great loss can only be felt if there was something great to lose. It is that greatness that will comfort you as you get through the grief of loss. Then you will have all the good memories to look back on.

That's something I also discussed at the end , with him. I said that I read about things that could maybe cure your cancer like encapsulate vitamin C and vitamin b17 stuff like that.. But he was to sober to really give it a chance..or to tired to give it a try?

Thanks you..

Thanks heff,

Beautifully spoken words...They are connected and I believe sometimes partially our conscience in things we may in the future go wrong about , or have to enjoy?.. Maybe thats where wisdom starts , that all loved ones who have been diseased speak through you to walk the right path....?

The most important thing is when the laughter starts to kick in , the memories start to grow.. I never forget those days , the best days.. after awhile we all became more serious in life ..

And that's good but we all really loved our youth with everything in it.. we also were 16 thats were the bounding starts to become more solid , carpe diem my friend never forget this day with your friend hanging on that couch laughing his ass off about something silly.

We also listen allot toCheech and Chong audio files in those days.. I have a thread made around that, my friend who died was the one who brought it on , Its sooo funny..especially when your stoned

peace and thanks..
