Time to say goodbye
« on: September 20, 2017, 02:57:06 AM »
Today I am going to a hostice and unless miracles really do exist,, it is the end of the line for me.
A exact time is impossible to tell ofcourse, but it will most likely be between 1 and 5 months before I am dead.
I can make this a very long story,  but I will not do so.
Though luck for all who like a good read ;D

Take care everyone and don't forget to have fun.

Eddie, I'm sure that you didn't make your decision lightly.  My prayers are with you.

I'm sure that there is a certain peace in having reached such a decision.  In 2010 my mother-in-law, in 2016 my brother-in-law, and then in July my good friend and neighbor did the same.  Their last days passed with a tranquility that still amazes me even though I can understand their reasoning.  Do your best to enjoy your remaining time.

No, worries as I sure will try to have as much fun as I still can.
I will keep trying to help people here and at other places as I have done for as long as I can.

Hi Eddy,

For certain we all have to face this journey, some very much sooner than they should.  It is how we face it that makes the difference and that is generally shown in how we deal with difficulty/danger in life.  I have no doubt you will face it bravely as in life "Watching (over?) you".

Out of the dark into the light, just like parachuting, out of the dark of the aircraft into the light of the door.

Wishing you as pain free a journey as possible, my very best wishes,

Dave

You're brave to post here... Most people won't have that strength.
My prayers and best wishes in the next months.
You'll be missed.
The best things in life are free.

Not possible to say something personal to everyone (including those who have sent a pm).
But thanks.
They will not help, but sure are appreciated.
It is ok, to  forget me just don't forget to have fun in live and to enjoy the little joys in live.
