Damn. I am sorry, Glork. Best wishes to you all, and I hope you have a blast in the time that you have left.

It's hard for me to find the words I really want to say, but let it be known that I think you're amazing and an inspiration. Regardless of what happens, you most definitely left a positive impact on the world.

Thanks. Weirdly enough that means a lot to me.

All that we leave behind when we pass is the memories in everyone else's minds. To leave behind a positive impact that makes the people around you smile - that, to me at least, is what matters

Most of the poignant words I could come up with have already been said. On request I think I can add a few swear words to express my opinion of the situation though...

I want to thank you for everything you've done as an icon and shaper of this site. What you did and what you represented, both when we worked together and before we ever crossed paths. In big ways and small, you improved my quality of life for years, no exaggeration.

(I also want to remind you of that one time we met up after that derecho that took out the Easton area's air conditioning. Thanks for making that day way better.)

The way I deal with serious issues like this would be humor.
But I can't think of any humorous thing to say that would be uplifting rather than "what the fuck, mastina" poor taste to say.
Sorry. :(

Hugs for all three of you!

I haven't really interacted with you guys in probably several years at this point (which is on me really), but you three are still among the people I hold the most respect for. I hope that the next year is fulfilling enough to leave you at peace, Glork. You definitely deserve it.

Glork, you're fantastic and have made such an impact on this community!

You'll always hold a place here and you should be proud of that <3

I don't know if anything I can say is helpful, but I do feel the need to say something. You, singer, and quadz are responsible for and part of some of the best memories of my life, and I'll always appreciate the hospitality you showed me (along with dozens of other people throughout the years). I miss you guys, and regret losing contact with you three once we all became less active on the site, but it seemed like things were finally going well in your personal lives after years of trauma and bad luck. It's devastating to find out it didn't last. But your attitude and philosophy toward dealing with this enormous shitpile is incredible and speaks a lot about your character and the kind of life you've led up to now. You have so many friends and family members who love you and have your back through this.

Also, nth the fuck cancer sentiment.

All the best. Glork, you rock. <3

I don't think I've ever directly interacted with you but I'm very aware of your presence on this site - you've had some positive impact on so many members of this site and I'm sure you have in the much bigger life you have outside of the site

fuck cancer

your friends and family will make sure this is the best time for you, hope you leave this life with the fewest regrets and the most good memories for your loved ones as you can

A true god of mafia. You were one of my first idols whom I tried to learn the game from, was always super excited to play with you.

May you enjoy the rest of your time here and thereafter.

Thank you for the kind words, all.

Yesterday, after some difficult conversations, I opted out of my latest chemo treatment for comfort/recovery - that is not to say I won't be trying to treat it moving forward, but I have a scan in a couple of weeks that will indicate whether this chemo has been effective or not. If so, I will go right back on it, and if not then at least I saved myself an extra week of misery.

Any time spent with your close ones is irrefutably precious and can never be dismantled. No matter what happens from here on out remember that every act of love has a permanent effect on their universes even as memories fade. Take care Glork.

Didn't notice this thread until now. It was an honor to be bussed by you in mlp :p.

I'm solidly in the crowd of people who never knew you that well on the site, but just wanted to add one more voice saying you really did have a tangible positive impact on this community, in a wide variety of ways.
