To ALL here

Postby Nik Colon » Fri Jul 10, 2015 11:54 pm

Everyone here is my friend and hero! We are all strong , brave, and beautiful. May we all keep fighting and defeat this beast together! To the fallen, you are also strong, brave, and beautiful. Death and this horrible disease may have taken you away but it will NEVER truly take you away as you live on in the hearts of so many. If there is an afterlife, we can relish in the joy that you are no longer bound by pain and suffering and the shackles placed upon us still on this earth. Peace and love to us all ♡

Thank you for this beautiful post. It came at the time I needed to "hear" these words the most. My dear brother (my only sibling) has passed a few days ago. He had rectal cancer (was diagnosed after I was finishing my chemo for colon cancer). He was scheduled for his re-section on the 8th,...but never made it.

He also discovered that he also was in renal failure,...so it seems he got tired of the horrible stuggle and fight, and decided to take matters in his own hands. As you said in your beautiful post,...he was indeed brave. It's not fear that caused him to decide his own ending.

He came here often to read all the posts,..yet never posted himself...so he was comforted by the knowlege he recieved here. An old ex Vietnam Marine,..who when coming back to the States, joined the Hell's Angels in California,..and the Banditos in Texas for many years. Then going on in a distinquised career as an Electronic Technician in Tampa (still always had the "Old Biker" inside of him). I miss him terribly, as does my daughter.

I am so sorry for your loss. I too only have 1 sibling and I can only imagine the pain you and your daughter are in right now. Please accept my condolences. I hope in time, the pain fades and the wonderful memories and love are all that remain.
