Pot clinger, I've only been on this forum for a little while too but it doesn't take long to feel at home here, so don't feel like you're intruding.

Someone walked by my office just now and asked why I looked like I'm about to cry. I couldn't find the words to explain and finding it very hard to type right now.

Katie, I can't find the words but I am thinking about you, Buck and your family and still sending out prayers and good thoughts your way.

I'm so sorry this has taken an hour but I just got home. Katie called right around 12:00. They have decided to pull everything and she wants everyone to know she can feel our love and arms around her. She is just absolutely heartbroken, I can tell you that for sure! She is so grateful for the generosity of those who have helped monetarily and can't say thank you enough because that is exactly what is needed at this time. She can't thank everyone enough for their prayers also and like I said, she can feel our love. She just kept saying "THANK YOU".

Katie - I know I can speak for everyone here, our hearts are yours right now.

Oh Katie, this is such a hard thing to do. I've been there myself and it is devastating even though you know it is the right course of action. How blessed Buck is to have his family surrounding him when he moves on to the next adventure. And even though your heart is breaking, it is a privilege to stand witness to the passing of another. We are all standing with you and Buck and love you very much.

Katie in some ways I feel so far away and yet also very close. This reminds me so much of my grandfather when he went and I really want to say you are in my thoughts & prayers as you go through one of the hardest times in your life.

My love aand strength goes to you.

Thank you for the update.

Dear Katie, no words can express all I want to say. I have been praying for healing, but as we talked about the other day, this is just another type of healing. Buck will no longer be in pain. I am praying that God will wrap you in His loving arms and help you through this. I pray that He gives you the strength to go on, knowing that Buck is with Him, and that all the wonderful memories you have built up with Buck will put a smile on your face or make you laugh whenever you feel like it is all too much to bear. And remember that we will be there for you as well. We love you.

Barbara

Oh, Katie. I'm so sorry you had to bring us this update.

Pounding my chest, feeling your pain.

Peace, dear lady.

Can't believe what I'm reading....
Katie, you can be sure, lots of thoughts and prayers are with you at this moment - and with buck.
I wish you all the strength you need to get through this..
