just needed to say , somewhere ... my cousin’s cancer journey ended yesterday .... he was always the joker ... it never left him ... he never let it take his spirit ... I can picture him now up there back with his mum and dad back to my wonderful auntie who like him lit up a room and laughter followed her everywhere ... his dad that died when he was young from shrapnel after the war .... he was the one that started calling me Chrisie what a lovely reunion that ll. be ... so if I hear laughter in the distance, it’ll be him telling them all the things that have happened after they left ... xx
What a lovely tribute you have written about your cousin. It sounds like he was great fun to be around and I hope you have many lovely memories to help heal his passing.
Sending hugs, Brian
I agree with everything Brian has said, he sounds like a lovely person and we're really sorry to hear of his passing. Our thoughts are with you at this time.

Thank you Brian ... I’ve loved looking at your wise words and sayings and wanted to tell you how lovely that site is ... I look on there when I feel I’m feeling low, and they always cheer me up and make me smile again .... you are truly an angel ... and you help more people then you realise ... you are an inspiration...
thinking of meeting them again all the ones that passed befor are what keeps me going .. big hug Chrisie xx
Thanks so much Steph... he’s prob got every one giggling up there ... that’s how he would want to be remembered too ..
. thank you too ... to all you wonderful nurses on here ... your always here to empathise and brilliant advice too ... so HI FIVE to you all ... you are amazing ... but I must say I don’t always look at heading ..and I don’t like to see any one with no replies.. so I answer and usually tell them to “ask the nurses” then realise they all ready did ... it’s my age xx
Hi Chris, I private messaged you earlier but I couldn’t let your lovely comments about everybody on this site go by without agreeing with every word you have said. I think you underestimate your own inspirational effect – you certainly inspired and helped me. As has everybody, just knowing we are not alone in our darkest times is priceless.
Thinking of you
Thank you for your kind words. I have noticed over the past few weeks that you respond to a lot of peoples posts, especially those who have not recieved a reply. It takes corouge to make the first post on here, for some people more than others, and its always nice to get a reply so well done to you.
In the five years I have been a member of this forum, I have come to look on this site as being like an large extended family. So many lovely people on here. I often say, we can all use our own experiance of cancer to help others.
Take care my forum friend and hugs returned, Brian
Thank you every one that’s put a reply on here ... it’s his funeral tomorrow.. although their hearts are broken they are doing “a tribute to his life” as he would have wanted ... it’s just a shame his wife and children had to wait so long to say good bye ... but I bet there’s lots there and bet there’s some funny stories to come out, he’ll go the way he lived , with a smile and a few chuckles ... he definitely kicked cancers ass to the end ... ❤️ Xx Chrisie
