    @Lixx I did not expect to hear that Chris, although I do not know you in person, it makes me sad the situation you are going through. I do not know what to tell you, the only thing I would say It's that you enjoy your family very much.

    I send you a big hug!

    I’m very sorry to read this. Thank you for being so open about things here as you have kept us updated. If it’s possible, spend your time doing things that make you happy. Surround yourself with the ones you love. I can not tell you how bummed it is to read the last post, but also, very nice of you, to still, take the time, to update us. Thank you.

    Chris, words cannot express how truly sad I am to hear this. Thank you for sharing your collection and input on SB. Thank you for our chats. I will miss your strong presence on the boards. I hope your last days are your happiest with family and friends.

    Sincerely,
    Anthony

    I am absolutely heartbroken Chris. I’m never really sure what to say these kind of situations, but I’ve always loved talking with you over the years.

    You have always been one of my very favourite Skullbrainers, a purist and a straightshooter. And definitely my favourite grump on this board and one of the top five that i've known in the wider world. Here is to wishing you might find serenity in the face of this cruel twist of destiny. Hugs. Ben.

    No man. Not like this. Have you gotten second, and even third opinions??? If there is a will there is a way. Doctors suck. They are often wrong and stupid. I pray you got MULTIPLE opinions. I know this has to be able to at least be arrested and worked on from there. You got me in tears man. My heart and my prayers are very much with you. I know we don't know each other but that makes you no less important to me than anyone else. Be strong. Dig down as deep as you can and don't give up. I know there is still a chance. There must be. Have you thought about going abroad?

    Chris, your presence on this board, with my time here, has left an impression that feels like you’ve shared your collection and stories with me face to face. Your strength in transparency about your situation has been incredibly awe - inspiring, as has your fight to keep pushing. I don’t know you personally, and I don’t know what I can even say, but it is heartbreaking to know such a piece of this online collective puzzle will be missing. My absolute best to you, your friends, family and loved ones. I’m appreciative of your time here with us.

    <3

    Chris, I have no idea how to even begin to say anything that would bring you even the smallest of comforts. We shared conversations that I told you how I admired you privately, I should have done so publicly over these years. I always appreciated and admired the nature of your soul, a SINCERE music aficionado, an avid bird watcher and Nature lover. A Scientist and a TRUE and PASSIONATE Tokusatsu fan.

    I told you that you gave me strength.

    Nobody ever knows how much time any of us had or still have. I was so sincerely thrilled you granted me permission to reproduce your absolutely perfect and wonderful Ceratosaurus photo, which has long been, and for so very long indeed- one of my favorite photographs of perhaps 100's of thousands in my lifetime.

    All funds will go to Animal shelters.

    After letting you know privately about my own health and what Mr. Sato was also living with, I can only say for as long as I have left in this world; one of very few regrets ever is never having the simplest pleasure of actually meeting you in person. I know it is not something that men say to one another often, however it needs said, thank you so very kindly for adding to my days.

    I love you Chris Ibsen aka Lixx.

    See you in time,
    J

    This is so unexpected. I am at a loss of what to say other than I am so sorry to hear this.

    Man I really dont know what to say.. I've read all of your posts and never really replied because it sounded like some of your doctors were fools and I was sure you were going to make a recovery. I still hope you will - dont give up. You never know what tomorrow holds. Stay positive!

    Oh Chris.. :( :cry: I almost don't have the words. This is another example and striking one of how precious, short, and unfair life is. My heart is broken for you, your family and close friends. I know everyone here and of course you, were all hoping and praying for a much different outcome.

    In the days that come, make sure you surround yourself with your family and close friends. Do the things that bring you the most joy. As a Christian, I will be praying for you and will add you to my church's prayer book. There is a lot of power in prayer and we will all lift you up until its time to return home to Father God.

    Psalm 91 is one of my favorite passages of the bible. You can find the complete verse here and its worth a read. https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Psalm+91&version=NIV

    This is one of my favorite lines from it.

    He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.


    You are a warrior and you gave a valiant effort, dear brother.

    Rest now, enjoy your family and we all love you.

    Chris,
    Thank you for the times we shared talking about toys and stuff.
    I always valued your opinions and especially your attitude.
    May you find peace and freedom from pain.
    See you on the other side, my friend.

    I'm so sorry Chris, I hated reading this. No one ever has the right things to say in this situation but I am truly sad to hear about this. A friend and I were just talking the other day about how we should take care of ourselves better, but it seems as if no matter what we do, the outcome may still be what we don't expect. Thank you for being an open book and sharing the good and the bad with us. They say it's easier to share your thoughts with strangers than with someone close, I'm glad that you choose us here. I hope the time you have is spent with your friends and loved ones <3 Don't strain yourself or spread yourself to thin, just get the rest that you need. Take care of yourself, friend <3

    At a loss for words here, normally don't chime in when it comes to major things, because I figure there is nothing i can offer that will actually help. But this place won't be the same without you.

    Nothing any of us can say will change a damn thing, but please know our thoughts are with you.
    You are a gentleman and an ambassador for this daft little hobby.

    A poem by my favourite writer of all time. For what its worth:


    A SONG WITH NO END

    when Whitman wrote, "I sing the body electric"

    I know what he
    meant
    I know what he
    wanted:

    to be completely alive every moment
    in spite of the inevitable.

    we can't cheat death but we can make it
    work so hard
    that when it does take
    us

    it will have known a victory just as
    perfect as
    ours.

    - CHARLES BUKOWSKI

    Chris,
    We haven't had much interaction over the years, but your presence on this board has been a big part of its foundation since I joined 8+ yr ago. I thank you for that and everything you've brought to this world. And I wish you the best in the path forward, no matter its length.

    Love from a stranger,
    Rob
