Re: Hi, All

Percy,  I just want you to know that I go back and read many of your old posts, to glean the information you have left for others.  I'm now at the stage of this journey, where I sit back, try to find new meaning in life and take time to enjoy what I can, all the while, always wondering if CC will return someday.  I'm in that glorious 5% who had surgery and now hope that will be the end of it, but I know I will have to stay vigilant and push for frequent checks to try to catch anything before it becomes too big to deal with.  I didn't get a chance to really get to know you much in personal posts, but from the response from others on the board, I have a very good idea of the intelligent, kind and generous person you are.  I pray that you are comfortable and well taken care of.  Thank you for all your posts that are there for us to research and go through on our own journeys. 

Prayers and Hugs,
Iowa Girl....Julie T.

Re: Hi, All

Dear All,

My father, Percy, went home to the Lord peacefully last Wednesday morning. He was surrounded by my mother, sisters and my aunt. He was laid to rest this past Saturday in a private funeral.

My father requested me to thank everyone on his behalf for all the prayers, concerns and words of encouragement during his journey with CCA. He appreciated every friendship and memories he made here.

During his journey, my father was very determined to seek and share new information about CCA with everyone wanting to know more. I recall him spending countless hours sitting by his computer researching many medical studies and taking the time to share the information as well as his own thoughts about the new and upcoming strategies in fighting CCA on the forums and through emails.

My father was an charismatic, confident and generous man who was proactive in wanting to learn more about CCA to help himself and others going through a similar journey. In the last couple of months when my father knew his journey would come to an end, he told my family and I to "Stay strong and trust in God no matter what lies ahead. Don't get mad at God as our relationship with Him is what will reunite all of us in Heaven one day."

He will be truly missed.

With Regards,
Samuel

Re: Hi, All

Dear Samuel, how do we say thanks for a Post we hoped to never see? Your Father was loved by so many and through this site I can honestly say I made friends with a real gentleman, scholar and wonderful human being. Your Father also was a valiant warrior and fought with dignity, always dignity and hope for others. He used to joke with me because my Husband was Sicilian and I always said Teddy opened a Sicilian restaurant up there until one day Percy said to me, I am going to go into competition with Teddy and open a Chinese Restaurant. We used to laugh about that and I said there will be no competition as I know you will really like each other. I know your Father is now at Peace and some day I look forward to trying his new Restaurant. Thank you so much for giving a big part of your Father to us, he will never be forgotten!

Re: Hi, All

Dear Samuel,

I am very sorry to hear this news, but deeply appreciate you letting us know.  Your father was so generous with his knowledge and time, and he touched and helped so many people through this board.  I will always be grateful to him. 

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family,

Catherine

Re: Hi, All

Dear Samuel,

Thank you for this and like Lainy, I too hoped that we would not see this post

There are not enough words to describe how thoroughly decent and kind a man your dad was. To say that he will be sorely missed by so many people is the biggest of understatements. He was much loved by so many and he will never ever be forgotten. I was so very proud to call your dad my friend.

He helped so many people worldwide with his sharing of information, his thoughts and of course his time, and during all of that he was fighting his own battle with CC. A true gent and a fighter who would not lie down and so wanted to help others walking the same path as he was. A fellow Bears fan as well and one last time for you as you used to say Percy, go Bears.

Samuel, I too lost my dad to CC and I so know how you are feeling right now and what you are going through. Please know that each and every one of us are here for you. I am glad that your dad was surrounded by his loving family at the end and that his passing was peaceful as well. My condolences to you and your family Samuel and my thoughts are with you all as well.

RIP my friend, you will always be with us all.

Hugs,

Gavin

Re: Hi, All

Dear Samuel,

Your father  was all that and more.  He will be greatly missed by so many.  No words can take away the pain and sadness of your loss, but as you grieve,  try to take some comfort in knowing that he is no longer suffering or in pain  and will be with you forever in your heart and memories.

Thinking of all of you at this sad and trying time.

Love & Hugs,

Re: Hi, All

Samuel,

I'm a relative newcomer to the boards, but I instantly was drawn to your dad's posts and thus to him...his generosity and readiness to jump in and help those who were traveling this journey along with him.  We are all grateful to have known him in whatever way he touched our lives.

May the God that unites us and promises life everlasting, give you and your family the peace you deserve.  Know what a wonderful legacy he has left you and your family.....and that in his words, " ....our relationship with Him is what will reunite all of us in heaven one day." 

My deepest sympathies,

Julie T.

Re: Hi, All

Samuel,
I too am grateful for your post. In addition to meeting him on this blog,  I had the privilege to meet Percy a  couple of times at cancer conferences, hear him speak to top CC MD's, shared a lovely dinner with him and always felt his loving kindness.those who posted today about his passing have spoken the truth... Your father was a generous man, sharing his time and talent to help others.  His posts are here to continue helping others seeking support with cc and his memory will be cherished.  God bless you and yours during this sad time.

Re: Hi, All

Samuel,
I am so sad to hear about your father losing his battle with this disease.  I had the honor and the privilege of attending many conferences and conventions with him for many years. We had many wonderful conversations - one in particular was in April of 2013 in Washington, DC. Percy and I had time to enjoy a lengthy breakfast together before my flight back to Boston. We laughed and shared so many of our hopes and also shared our fears. It on this day that your father told me about a healthy Asian soup and since then I go and purchase the roots from the Asian market and make this soup. Each time I do, I think of him. We talked about him coming to Boston for Maine Lobster - I'm sorry he never had the opportunity to come.  He was relentless in his mission and always sharing his insight and knowledge with everyone on the discussion board.
I will never forget your amazing father. Percy, my friend, I hope you have met my amazing husband Jacques in heaven. Rest in Peace, dear friend - you will be missed by so many of us in this foundation. Samuel,  my thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Hugs from New Hampshire,
Barbara
