It's at times like this that the written word and conveyance of feelings is lost upon myself and the right thing to say doesn't come easy or seem like it's enough but that's all I and many other folks on here at TFMR have right now. I'm sure many of them share this same sentiment.
I thought this important enough to start this thread because Chris.... your important enough to all of us and a big part of our community in such a way that there is no way I could not recognize that in some small way.
My hope is that some others come here and convey their heart-felt feelings or encouragement towards you in the hopes you read it yourself or that someone else who loves you makes you aware of it so that you get a real grasp of what your thoughts and persona on here have meant since you made your presence and thoughts known to all of us and the many thousands of folks around the world who read them and got to know you by them.
And those contributions, whether they were completely serious and laced with Puck wisdom and life observations or whether they were funny/silly were significant in only the way you could express them to all of us.
I felt it important you should know these things Chris in your hours of need so that you realize that you are missed and were appreciated and taken seriously and paid attention to. There can be no doubt all of those things happened on here and my hope (and that of everyone) is that someday you come on this thread or the Main thread and post away in your typical manner that catches everyone's attention and lets us know that you're back with us.
Although we don't really know each other except from the electronic bits of feelings and knowledge we try to impart on each other I know I've learned much from your experiences and outlooks and I thought it important for you to know you left a mark on many of us. A good mark and one that we hope continues into the future.
My sincere thoughts and prayers are with you Chris and I hope you except them in the good spirit they are offered. I have a feeling that given the kind person you seem to be and the challenge presently before you that you will allow and absorb these kind gestures and messages no matter what. I believe that you will.
Take care our friend, and let us know somehow when possible that you've heard them and allowed them to soak in.
Your friend and CIGA at TFMR....Mike/DPHaze :-)
My heartfelt prayers for your body to remain strong while you battle pneumonia during your battle with cancer. I will imagine a trillion little soldiers in your body in search of the enemy and armed with vacuums, I will visualize them sucking 100% of the disease out of your body so that you may heal and revive your mortality.
Best wishes sir.
you are in my thoughts(and prayer's).. be well my friend. drop of Joni. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a24wVSVLtLQ
Sending all the positive energy I can muster your way. Get well soon, you are missed very much.
we will miss your wisdom Puck. but it is you now that needs our best thoughts and words. you save your strength and beat back this bitch. blythe will wait for another day! i will hold your position until you return.
Puck - praying for wholeness and peace in your life. Conserve your strength. Do what you must, but remember that this is not all there is. Party at Turd's when you get back!
Fight Puck! All that you can muster! Others have succeeded before you - it is winnable! I am sending all the good karma I have in my soul to you in a feisty and fierce mental envelope. Along with my best valkyrian wishes and confidence that you will beat this beast and come back to us.
Remember that each and every moment you live is a victory. No matter how things feel or what is said around you, you are stacking up victories one at a time. We will all meet our end someday but remember that your end is not now.... because you are still here. Keep stacking them.
May you emerge from these trials even stronger, wiser and better prepared than ever. I give my best hopes and prayers that we will all be hearing much more from you soon.
hope to see you back here soon Puck
One of the worst parts of not being home is finding a good bed to sleep in. Anyway just know that many of us wish you well, keep your chin up partner.
The world's a better place with you in it Puck. They say the truth shall set you free and fleeting as it is, we lucky few have most definitely lived free. Peace to you brother. See you soon.
Goodluck. I echo everyone else's sentiments. You have my thanks for the wisdom you have imparted on this community! I hope you get well buddy, see you soon.
Many prayers for you Puck.
I wish you well and strong health.
Here's wishing you real peace of mind as you gather your energy to fight your battle.
I don't really have the words... Fight the good fight, you are in my thoughts.
If any of Chris's family are reading this my thoughts are also with you as well as Chris.
I hope those that support him through this critical time are able to liaise with the doctors and get the best treatment for him. The medical model and treatment often have negative effects on the immune system, but there are things Chris can do to support his immune system and mitigate some of the effects of drugs. Most doctors don't use/believe in immune boosting remedies. If you want more information, please post a note here or message me.

Sending positive thoughts and vibes/prayers to our friend and fellow Turdite, Puck/Chris.
Good Luck and Stay Strong, Puck.
