Buzz passed away August 19, at home. I was at his side. His tongue cancer recurred in May and despite palliative chemo, the cancer still grew. He was placed on Hospice a month ago. I want to thank everyone on the forum who helped me through the difficult times during his treatment and illnesses. God bless you all. Karen

Karen,

I am sorry to read this. No words that I type here can possibly relieve you and your family from the pain you feel at this time. Hopefully, as time passes, so does the pain and only fond memories will remain.

Karen,
I'm so sorry to hear the sad news. Buzz was blessed to have you by his side through his journey here on earth. There is a time to be strong and a time to be weak. You were so strong for Buzz that I hope you allow yourself to be weak and let others help you through this difficult time. God bless.

so saddened by this news. Buzz fought the good fight with you as his wonderful caregiver.

I think we all lose a piece of ourselves when we lose a fellow warrior.

I wish you peace during this difficult time.
May your memories comfort you.

your family, Karen we all know on this site the possibility we could lose the battle. We get inspiration from those on this site to let us know we can make it, it will be tough but we can. But in reality we know it also may take us. Diane and I have lost love ones to cancer as Im sure most on these sites have. But with testimonies like Buzzs and yourself no matter the end result is a blessing. We will all meet our maker one way or the other and Buzz is in a better place, no pain, no sorry. So for you and the family we wish you peace and just good memories of Buzz.

Is it okay to say I shed a tear (because it's about you and not me)? I hurt for you Karen and I'm sorry for your loss.

Thank you for sharing, my prayers are with you for comfort and strength. Truly was sad to read your post.

II Corinthians 4:16-18

16 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. 17 For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! 18 So we don’t look at the troubles we can see now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.

Aching for you right now (OK - aching for me, too - hearing of someone else's terrible loss makes you remember your own). It's not so much that I feel sorry for myself now, I just REALLY feel sorry for you. Horrible to want someone's pain to end, and want them to get better, and know that you just can't have both.

I am so sorry to hear that Buzz passed. You both have been an inspiration to my husband and I. It is good that you were there by his side as you have been throughout. He fought a valiant battle and so did you, he is with God and may God always be with you. Jan
