This is a heartbreaker. For all of us. I remember the last post he wrote on here about how his garden would be exploding with veggies in late July. There was no indication or sense that he wouldn't be here to tell us about the bounty. BB always gave calm, great, inspirational advice and managed to make me laugh at the same time. I remember a thread quite awhile ago where he was asked why his username was Brown Bagger and if it meant he packed his lunch
. Eric's explanation was priceless. With his energy, projects, traveling, and bike rides, I thought he was invincible. How could he not be? How could sucky cancer win this time around?
CR Guy, I am surrounding you with virtual love. I'm so sorry for your pain and the loss of someone so dear to you. Every loss on here is painful, but we each have ones that hit us harder than the rest. You give so much to all of us and it's hard to see how much this hurts you. I wish with all my heart I could make it easier for you. Just know you're in my heart and I'm here if you want to talk or rant or howl at the fates.
My thoughts and prayers are with Eric's family. I choose to believe that although we here will miss the hell out of him, he's in a place where he is no longer ill or tired or tied to chemo and where he can garden and explore and ride bike trails to his heart's content. I have to believe that.
