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!

    I have been thinking of Buzz lately

    and I appreciate you Patch for letting us know about his passing. Buzz was a stalwart for me when I first joined the board. I loved his humor, his kind support, and his no-nonsense attitude. I beleive I see that twinkle in his eye.

    Fair winds Buzz!

    The thread we don't want to see.

    But alas, the reality of what may come.

    God bless his family. I will send a prayer Heavenward for Jodi and all whose lives Buzz touched. 

    Damn this disease!

    P.S. Is this the same person whose name was Buzzard?

    So sorry to read this.   In

    So sorry to read this.   In my first days of searching here, I came across many of Buzz's (yes Trubrit...Buzzard) posts and found so much comfort and hope.   I felt like I was constantly saying to my husband "well, this guy Buzz says..."  Though I only had direct contact with him once or twice when he answered my questions, I feel like I knew him.  

    I wish peace and comfort to his family.

    Buzz:

    Rest in peace my friend.  The kindness you showed to me during George's journey will never be forgotten. Your journey here is now over so when you get up to heaven, find my George, he is a great guy to swap fishing stories with.   Of course Cynthia's Rick will be there analyzing the stories, Blake will be there to work out the statistics, Jenny will be laughing and dear Lisa will be there praying for the whole bunch.

    I have been expecting to see this post.I am saddened,

    I think Buzz was the first person to greet me when I signed on here the first time.He teased me about my moniker being "JayLo"(J-Lo )....that is until he found out that JayLo is my fat catWink The first to friend me too.He was a thoughtful, fun man.

    My deepest condolences to his family.

    Rest peacefully dear Clift.

    Until we meet again,

    Your friend, Pat aka JayLo

    So sorry

    I didn't get to know Buzzard but heard so much about him from all of you here. I am so sorry for his family and his friends here. I know it is hard for you to lose him, and that he's been treasured on this community. Wish I'd known him.
