Sandman, you've touched the lives of many, many people -- friends, family, students, and countless folks online. I envy your students, being able to learn from someone as wise as your wonderful self, but I'm still incredibly thankful I was able to get to know you at least a bit through this forum. I wish you didn't have to go because I love having you on here, both as a mod and as an intelligent contributor to many discussions, but I'm glad you've decided to go on your own terms. It sounds like you have a ton of great folks there looking after you and making this as comfortable as possible, so I'm very glad to hear that as well. It's been a pleasure knowing you, and I hope everything goes peacefully. Farewell, good friend.
Guys, this is getting creepy. Can we talk about cannibalism instead?

It was an honour to meet you, my friend, if only for a time.

Fare thee well.
In paranoia I find genius / But the ice-dreams have come
with spiritless consequence / A hatchet has been hidden
between my eyes / A hatchet gift-wrapped in paranoia / A
wooden heart never bleeds / A wooden heart never bleeds,
yet inextricable thoughts still weave / Introspection
fabricated for battle / No time has been wasted
/ Neuroleptic seconds marry electroconvulsive hours / In
the cranial freezer, paranoia is the bastard and I
find genius Petrify / Paralyze

There isn't much I can say that hasn't already been said, so I'll keep it at this: I hope these next few weeks are happy, peaceful and full of all the joy you deserve. You're an incredible person.

Goodbye, Sandman.

Sandman,

You are one of very few people I respect and trust. I want to thank you for taking the time you have helping me in the past and know I've taken most of it to heart, even if I do still manage to screw it up from time to time.

Enjoy your time and know we all care for you.

Remember that Dylan Thomas was wrong when he wrote Do not go gentle into that goodnight. There's nothing wrong with choosing to go gentle into that goodnight. There's nothing wrong with choosing to shorten life so that you don't have to suffer in pain, and your family and friends don't have to watch you suffer, and as a result suffer themselves. I know it's not an easy choice, but it's the right choice.

You'll be sorely missed here. I wish you peace, and that you are kept company by friends and family in your remaining time left.

Goodbye, Sandman. This forum will never be the same without you.

To add to what SimSim said, I believe there is a certain amount of dignity involved in the way you are choosing to live out your final days. Passing in what is hopefully a calm and peaceful manner, rather than dragging out the ordeal. I think it is a courageous decision to make and I wish you nothing but the best. (Terribly sorry to hear about your wife, as well; I did not know what she had gone through.)

The "Under Bacon" will miss you greatly, Sandman.

Sandman,
You're a wonderful human being, and hearing this news saddens me greatly. You're one of my favorite posters, and has always said the most spot on things in this forum. Part of me wants you to keep on fighting the good fight, but that is very selfish, and you're decision is the best decision(after all I've had many relatives in the past, who've dealt with cancer). I wish I had more to say, but I can't find the words that would best describe how greatly you will be missed, after all, this forum has become a second family to me. I hope your final days are the most peaceful. And May The Force Be With You.  :'(

I don't know what to say, other than that you will be greatly missed, and we were lucky to have you on the forum. I hope your hospice is as comfortable as possible.

You're really going to be missed around here, Sandman, not going to lie. It's extremely saddening to see you go, though it is comforting to know that you're going out on your own terms. I hope these next few weeks are as peaceful and happy as they possibly can be, you most certainly deserve at least that.

Farewell, friend.
