Not to be a bummer.  Dropping by to thanks. I've enjoyed this site immensely the help and camaraderie is the best.

I've been inactive of late. Simply because I am now bedridden with stage 4 stomach cancer. No timeline but is extremely aggressive and can't be treated. I likely won't see the New Year. I post this now as might not have the strength for later.

I am NOT depressed, despondent or otherwise, I am at peace surrounded by family & friends. Goodbye my C.C. friends.


And more, much more than this, I did it my way

So sorry to read this news. I nearly posted "Anyone heard from Abers and / or  Spinner recently " yesterday and thought better of it as you never know what is happening with people. Wishing you peace / comfort surrounded by your loved ones. It`s been a pleasure virtually knowing you,

It is good to hear, you are not depressed, and surrounded by family and friends. Like Jinky and Howard, I too wish you peace and comfort.

So sorry to hear your news Spinner and you are taking it with fortitude  surrounded by family and friends.

A strange coincidence, but my reasons for absence are exactly  the same. I was diagnosed with terminal stomach cancer five weeks ago . My family are a godsend and like you things are not as frightening  as I thought they would be.

God bless.

Sorry to hear that Abers. Perhaps you and Spin could set up a branch of Camera Craniums in Heaven then, when the rest of us have, 'shuffle off this mortal coil', we could join you there.  8)

God bless you as well.  :tup:

How awful, to have to say goodbye to two old friends at the same time.

Thank God for your daughters and grand children. I am sure, together you will be able to make the best of the time left.

All the best. It was great to have met you, and thank you for your advice.
