Re: 2017 : In Memoriam BrownBagger

I have started a Memorial topic to honour Eric
BrownBagger ....... I don't know what to say

This post however, will not be the usual In Memoriam


Once upon a time
the ColonTalk forum was a very different place.
It seemed maybe a bit more “homey” casual chillaxed …. for folks dealing with CRC.

I was a firebrand and a bit of an in yo’ face asshole back then if someone would attack somebody else.

Developed a friendship with a fellow lung thang ganger named BrownBagger.
We chatted, posted in/out of topics, PM’d and emailed.

He once said to me “ didn’t come here to get in fights and make an enemy ”
among MANY other very astute offerings. NOT in a critical or threatening way .. he just kinda got his message out there.

Many years passed and he did more chemo than anyone ever had the bad fortune to have to do…all with grace, humility and in your face honesty…. while continuing to ride his bike about 10,000 miles !

Somebody once said his avatar of Einstein riding a bike around campus was epic …. It was , BUTT I always saw Eric on that bike … riding 10,000 miles … on any and EVERY campus !!!

We both had aging fathers who were advanced cancer patients
We discussed things in confidence we would never share in public, but each KNEW .. what we each knew.

If I told him something .. it was in the vault and he knew the same of me.

We were not always politically correct, especially with each other !
We shot a lotta shit and gave as good as we got …….

BUTT

never would I have ever doubted him or called him into question

over the last 2 months we exchanged emails and I think we both knew the sub context

He was being BrownBagger
and I was being CRguy

WE were who we ARE !

This forum
this world
my life

just got smaller, with a void which cannot be filled

Eric, BrownBagger

You are my best friend
I hold you in the light
You are with me
and I am with you
and together we will still do what we always did

Kick Ass and Take Names
and will NOT rest until cancer IS DEAD

Fuck Cancer
Long Live BrownBagger


WORD !

A Difficult Year I believe truly understates what our dear friend Kathy has endured.

Please join us in supporting her in her own topic which sadly tells us all of the tragic passing of her beloved daughter, Kim.

With deep respect and my most heartfelt sympathies to you and your family Kathy.
Love, Peace and Harmony to you

The end of an era

Postby CRguy » Wed Nov 15, 2017 1:03 pm

Our dear friend and research rock star, Tom, cancer researcher, patient and advocate, dies at 45

DK37 ( Tom ) is being honoured and remembered in this memorial topic Tom marsilje started by our dear friend exaussie.

Tom was living proof of the need to fight this disease with everything we have.
He lived his life and gave his life as a patient and researcher on the front lines.

He will be missed by all who knew him and remembered as someone we all wanted to know and support.

My deepest sympathies to his loving family and all of his friends, everywhere.
We shall not see his likes again.

Rest Peacefully my dear friend

Love, Peace and Harmony
CRguy
