I haven't been on these forums long, so I don't know much about anyone here. Still, I sympathize with your plight and can only offer my hope that you might still experience a remission. If not then may you suffer as little hardship as possible and be surrounded and supported by loved ones.

Thank you to everyone who has provided updates . . . even though the tidings are so very sad.

Namarie, oldtoby. May you forever dwell in peace and be filled with joy . . . whether that be in the house of the Lord, or in that far green country under a quick sunrise.

My prayers and thoughts go out to his family and all his friends. May they too find comfort and peace in future days.

Patty has updated with a message from the family to the posters here on the forums.

“Can someone post on the forum that my parents would like to thank all of you for the thoughts, prayers, and well wishes. Seeing your comments, especially after he died, was really comforting to them (and me) and they want you all to know that.”

This poor family. These people are so seeet.

In memory of Old Toby:

Sunset and evening star,
And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning of the bar,
When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,
And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
When I embark;

For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
The flood may bear me far,
I hope to see my Pilot face to face
When I have crossed the bar.

Crossing the Bar, by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Fair winds and following seas, dear friend! :cry:

"When I See You Again"

I still miss him.
I know i always will.
The sorrow is passing
But will never be gone.

RIP, Toby....

Wow. We both moved away later, but we grew up in the same city, at the same time. We could have run into each other as children.
