Lias bye bye haowii

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything, whether it relates to Cambodia or not. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Lias bye bye haowii

:Rose: I'll try to keep this short and sweet. My latest scan revealed bladder cancer at an advanced stage. My plan is to take the "final exit" approach and am procuring the necessary chemicals; it hasn't been easy and if you can help please pm me.

This forum has meant a lot to me. Living isolated as I do I have been connected to many other old time expats who have shared their feelings and experience. This fact has strengthened me to jeep on keeping on, but death is waiting at the final stretch.

Before bidding adieu I would like to mention the two mods who have meant the most to me. First is FLB who combines erudition, humor and uncommon sense in terse prose. Then there is Jamie.who knows how to get to the bottom of Khmer linguistic issues (among other things).

Sorry I can't mention other occasional sources of inspiration, generally if you talked straight from an informed point if view, you contributed to my.growth. In closing if I thought you were an uninformed touron twit, I made my feelings abundantly clear.

I do not know you and have never met you but I salute your attitude. An acceptance of life and death,

Sorry to hear taabarang.

Always enjoyed your posts, especially those about rural idioms in the language threads.

Hope when my time comes I get a similar opportunity to go with dignity.

All the best to you and your family, mate.

I have always enjoyed your posts even when we disagreed. I don't know if we have met in meatspace. I'm sorry to hear about your choice and condition. I wish you and your family well. Thank you for these memories.

Best take some legal advice to keep your family in the clear with the authorities.
Nembutal is good medicine for the purpose if you can find it.

Second star to the right then on till morning, good sir.
The idea that seeing the world is going from place to place to look at obvious things is an illusion natural to dull minds.
