Really touching MARIPOSA . I don't think there are many out there who have not lost a loved one to cancer. Those words are very encouraging.

Re: Lessons I've learned from my friend Hucc

Mari, I'm sitting here crying. Your words are so heartfelt, they are so amazing, they are guidelines for life, whether we are members of the Club or not.

Having lost a very close friend last August to the lung cancer fight.. well, you knew Jan, and even touched her in ways she needed. Now Hucc... I have another friend, Angela, who is fighting the big fight here. Angela is only 42, she has a 6 yr old daughter, but she has brain cancer. Now her bones are dying. Her teeth are crumbling, and she needs a hip replacement, but the doctors are thinking WHY SUBJECT HER TO SOMETHING THAT PROBABLY WON'T TAKE? Prayers for her, please.

And again, thank you for teaching us how to love those in the fight.

This shouldn't come as a surprise, yet Hucc is even connecting with people he never communicated with directly. I'll explain...

A couple of weeks ago at work, a young co-worker asked me what I had planned for Memorial Day weekend. I told her I was visiting a close friend in hospice, and gave her a little bit of background on Hucc. When I returned on Tuesday, she asked how the visit had gone. Last Friday, she asked about him, and I told her I was planning to visit again. Well, we all know what happened a few hours later.

When I got to work today, I entered a day off for Wednesday into our company master calendar. I hadn't seen this co-worker yet, and was hoping to catch her before she saw the entry. I finally saw her about an hour later... I walked by her desk to give her the news, and she immediately reached for an envelope. Soon after she had seen my entry, she figured out what had happened, and had left the office to buy a condolence card.

Inside, she wrote, "I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your dear friend. The way you spoke of him, he sounds like an amazing person."

Yes he is, I said. Yes he is.

A couple years ago, Hucc sent me some PMs that helped me get through my (successful) fight against prostrate cancer. I will always treasure his insight and encouragement.

Hey Hucc, one toast just isn't going to be enough for me! How about a pitcher since you aren't on any meds now. LOL
Goodnight my angel :angel

My heart felt condolences go out to the friends and family of Hucc.

He has touched my life from just reading these posts.

I am a friend of Lisa's and wanted to post a note here in support of those that lost a dear friend.

How very sad, I send my deepest sympathy, to his family. I didn't know him, except on the board,,, I really enjoyed reading his posts, and was very sad when he got sick. Beryl, said it all, and so well.

A most appropriate toast, in which I join you, as today was Hucc's wake.

Here's to you, Hucc. Godspeed on your eternal cruise!

Re: Lessons I've learned from my friend Hucc

I remember Mariposa's struggles, the updates, always with humor, the triumphs.

I wanted the same outcome for Hucc and thought it would happen.

We are all so very sad now. Thank you, Mariposa, for that wonderful tribute, information, and heartfelt words to and for all of us.

My condolences to Koolaid, Oliver, all of Hucc's family and friends. Although I never had the good fortune of meeting Hucc in person, I felt I knew him from his posting of his life's experiences here on Cruise Addicts.

Rest in peace.
