Diane got a link to the Facebook announcement earlier today.  Here's what it said: Clift Powers passed away this morning after fighting cancer for several years. Please pray for Jodi Younce Powers and their family during this tough time.

 

Clift Powers (Buzz)

 

Rest in Peace my dear friend.  See you in heaven!

With heavy heart I read this news, although we all knew it was coming we still do not like to see it written down.

Like many others, Clift was one of the first ones to calm my nerves when I was first diagnosed. He threw me the rope and did 

I hang on. Thanks Clift for all you have been to all of us, your caring and wisdom, humour and most of all the love you have shown to us.

It is what it is my friend, until we meet again,

many hugs and love and prayers going out to your family here on earth, Marjan

I haven 't posted on here for a long time but whenever I did peek in I would look for Buzz first. He was the first person that offered me hope, advice, comfort. He always knew the right thing to say. I'm sure he's sitting down with Lisa & John right now rejoicing that he's finally free from this beast that torments us every second of our days. My deepest sympathy to his family friends. Buzz was loved by so many!

What a wonderful Man.  You have enriched so many spirits here.  May your Light continue to shine there as it did here.  You are missed and will be remembered always for your compassion, humor, empathy, hope, and down-to-earth advice. 

My condolences to Clift's Family for the loss of this wonderful man.  Holding you all in the Light for comfort.

Loosing Buzzard is another great lost not only of course to his family but to those of us who grew to love him on this site.  I check randomly on this site to see how others are doing.  Having lost my Frank after 42 years of marriage to this disease, Buzzard was there for me during the earlier days of Frank's journey.  We have lost so many fantastic people just to name a few...Donna, Eric, Buzzard and so so many more.  Through the sadness we see courage, strength, and wonderful memories.  this site is so important to those going through the cancer battles along with their loved one.  My heart, my love, and my prayers go out to Buzz's wife and children and his extended family.  May your memories help to comfort you.  we were blessed to have Clift touch our lives in his own special way.

I don't think I have any words, this news makes me so sad,  I know he is in heaven with Donna NAND Jennie and mike and Julie and Eric and so many others that are and will forever in my heart. He was such a special person, all those that got to know him are better for it. I love you bubbly, save me a seat...God Bless his family.

We all lost a little humanity the day Buzz passed. 

 

Several of us got on each other. Buzz seemed to always calm a storm, a brewing.  Buzz I look forward to the day I get to speak with you again.

 

Best Always, mike

Buzz was one of the first ones to take the fear away from a newly diagnosed person. He made me feel

like evey thing was going to be okay. I have loved all of his postings. So many loved ones gone from
here. I did not show up much, but I come on to check on everyone. I love and admire all of you.

I look forward to seeing you Buzz in heaven and having some good talks.

Buzz, There's a lady up there with a 4 year old child playing around her. Go tell her hi and Mark sent you. She'll make you feel right at home with some REALLY sweet Ice Tea.

I haven 't posted on here or been on for a long time and looked for Buzz first thing. So sad to hear of his passing. He helped me when I first came here, told me to never give up. I loved reading his comments, he will be missed very much.
