That is so sad. He had so much to deal with on top of the cancer, yet remained so kind.

Rest in peace, Voxx. I'll miss your kindness.

On many occasions, I have woken up hating to be Me. There is a true brotherhood around here, men are kinda scarce. My brother Michael, put many a smile on my face. He will be dearly missed.

I just can't believe this, I was in complete shock when I read it. I was hoping it was just an awful joke but sadly it wasnt. He was just posting last week! Just so sad and sudden :(

I'm really surprised. His last update...while not great...didn't give any indication it was this bad. He posted a week ago....and it says he 'visited' here on Monday. Totally shocking! RIP Voxx. Condolences to his family especially his mom.

Always loved his avatar.

I am very sorry to hear of his passing. We had exchanged a few PMs in the past, and I enjoyed his rather unique outlook summed up by HA!. I am going to miss that :!: I know he was his mothers caretaker and this weighed heavily on his mind at times. I hope this was not a worry in the end. I for one think the world a happier place with him in it, and it should be sad to see him gone.

My condolences to all who will miss him greatly.

Absolutely gutted. He was my favourite poster, and I loved his kindness, dry humour, incredible spirit, and refusal to really let anyone know how tough things were. I had no idea his time was so imminent, and I can only say I am glad to have interacted with him on this board and via messages. RIP Voxx - Michael. My sincerest condolences to those who knew him better than I, and who undoubtedly will be left with a massive void in their world.
