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?

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!

Thank you for letting us know this sad news.

Buzz was a valued and active member of this community for a long time, and was not only a giver of information but also of hope and support for many.  He will be missed, but not forgotten by those who had a chance to know him.

Condolances to his wife, children, family and those who loved him.

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.

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

darling Buzz....you fought long and hard on this one.  I am with Johnny on this one.....for those of you who were not around yet....when Buzz got through his tough spot he turned around and said......I got me a rope here and I am going to pull each and every one of you through.......there were quite a few of us on that rope at that time and he just kept pulling....

RIP Buzz.....best love, maggie

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.

Buzz, I miss you my friend.  I have missed you on the board here for quite some time, but I always knew you were still with us here on Earth.  Now you are gone with all the others that we have loved so much.  I am so glad that I had time with you here, to listen to your wisdom and share in your burdens.  You, my friend are a wonderful man.  I know you will be ever present in the lives of your beautiful family and I know they will miss you so.

I am sad, very sad.

He was an inspiration to many.   He was always throwing in the rope for the newbies, pulling them up.   

Hang on the that rope Buzz, our friends in heaven are pulling you up!  God speed.

That is so sad but I'm glad that he is not suffering anymore.  He tried everything he could to continue on for his family and did bravely.  Was such a wonderful father and such a good Christian man.  May God guide him home to his mansion in the heavens.  We will miss you deeply.  My hope and peace goes out to his loved ones in this trying time.

It is What it Is....and the "it" in this case was a man full of humor, straight talk, and a huge caring heart. Thank you for all your help Cliff for when I first came on the Board.

God bless to you and your family.
