My Buddy Is Gone


Recommended Posts

My Buddy, my lover, my friend passed on to that other side last night at 9:30pm. I shall miss him something terrible. We had been married 46 years and together 5 years before that. I was 15 and he was 18 when we met. How does one go on after those many years? I guess I will find out now.

He gave this lc a very good fight but in the end, it got him.

Thanks to all of you who have been on this board answering all my posts when I needed to talk to someone. Thanks for all the cards and e-mails for they sure did help these past few weeks.

I have told you all about my Buddy's and my RAINBOW BRIDGE and how whichever of us died first, we would wait for the other there and I know that my Buddy is now there and waiting now for me and we will hopefully enter into God's Kingdom together someday.

This is a terrific sight. God love all of you and with His love we will all keep fighting this horrible disease together and help one other by having hope for a cure and sharing friendship and much needed love for our fellowman.

Till I come back, I remain your friend.

Of all the posters here, your were the ones I looked forward to first, I don't know why, you just were so full of love for everyone, and your love for Buddy was so evident and beautiful to me. I am so saddened by your loss. I pray for your serenity now and hope that you will come back to us soon. May God's Grace help you find peace and comfort in this hard time.

My heart weeps for your loss.

God grant you the strength to carry on, until it's time for you to meet Buddy at the bridge.

Powerful image, that.

God keep you in the palm of His hand, watch over you, and protect you during this time of grief, of wounded spirit.

I love you, and you are in my prayers.

Until you return, then,

Your friend,

MaryAnn :cry:

Dear Norme,

While words may not mean very much at this time, I found, and I hope you will too, so much comfort just knowing there are so many wonderful friends here thinking and praying for you. As Sam used to say when one of the members passed away, it is like losing a family member. How right he was.

I can only imagine Sam and Buddy, along with the other lung cancer friends, meeting and saying to each other," gee, they act like we were

special." Yes indeed , they were.

God bless us all,

My deepest sympathies to you on Buddy's passing. I had my Mom's funeral yesterday, so I know what you are going through. You are such a strong and special lady to take care of Buddy and love him through this. God will bless you for that. I pray God will give you peace and strength to get through the coming days. His word says he is near the weak and brokenhearted. He will get you through this. God Bless you, Norme.
