3 months ago, in fact a day after my 50th birthday, I was told I had terminal cancer. I went through the usual phases of disbelief, rejection, fear, anger etc that my councillor talked me through but that didn't make acceptance any easier. Some have noticed me posting less and less. Now I have finally accepted my fate and will be heading back to oz soon to die in the sun and surf that I know so well.



Sadly, against my normal calm and peaceful nature, I have been quite bitter lately and have taken that out on family, friends, and even some members here. For that, I appologise to all unresevedly.

I don't know how much time I have (do any of us really know?), but I do feel that I must make the most of what I do have and unfortunately Esato does not feature in my priorities.

so now on this sunny Sunday London afternoon in February 2012 I say goodbye to Esato and commit online hari-kari (self ban)... and if I can offer anything of meaning and importance to you all, the best I can come up with is that it has been fun!... live long and prosper!



Nan, Grandad... I'm scared but I am comforted that I will see you both soon!

It certainly has been fun masseur and this place would undeniably never have been the same without you. I have lost close family and friends through cancer but what I remember is the great times we had together.

You will certainly not be forgotten, not by anyone who has visited Esato.

Farewell - till we all meet again.

Sadly we often forgot that have to live our lives like we wont be here for long... and actually we never know how much longer we`ll be here. So as I`m extreamly sad to hear this news, even though we don`t know us personally I wish you to have the life you always dream of, to do the things you always want and maybe fear to do, to let your beloved persons how much they mean to you ... and to be satisfied!!!


farewell

Thanks, masseur, for posting this here, giving us the opportunity to say something, even though it's hard.

Thank you for the effort you've put in keeping Esato the way it is, which is why many of us enjoy coming here, even long after we've switched away from SE to other brands. For many years you've managed to do this on your own, being the only active mod, before tranced joined you.

I sincerely hope your condition will allow you, to make the most of the time you've left, together with your wife, son, daughter, family and friends.

Farewell, we won't forget you.

I can't find a way to tell what I'm feeling right now. This feeling has got all over me and the tears are the only way to let you know.

It was really fun to have you with us and all I can wish you is to spend the time you have left in peace. Surrounded by the ones who care about you and like wise.

I will miss you a lot. My prayers will be with you.

Dear masseur,

I am so shocked to hear this. Esato is like my family and you are one of the chief and important part of my this family. I cant think Esato without you. I always loved you and continue to love you. I am writing these with heavy heart and kinda pain in my mind. My eyes have tears. I love you. Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything you did for Esato and for us. Thank you is such a small word to express our feelings for you. ( i am all chocked up) This is like loosing one of family member.

May God bless you with your remaining life and my sincere pray to God, in next life, pls dont give my dear Masseur to suffer this illness. Next life, he has all right to live happily and have to have life of at least 70+ years. Amen

It was a very long time ago since I posted here. Kind of drifted off as I have been using non-SE phones for a while.

But coming back and reading this is very sad. Like a very hard slap in the face.

@masseur,
All the best for the time you have left of this life and then in the next. You will be missed and Esato will not be the same without you

None of us know what fate has in store for us. For some, the end comes very suddenly. For others, this comes announced in advance. I don't know if either is better. Perhaps to know when it is going to happen is best, as it gives a chance to put affairs in order.

I did wonder masseur why you were so choked up about when Whitney Houston passed away and you said you wondered about your own mortality. Makes me sad thinking of that.

This is a really sad day. Even though I don't know you irl masseur, you have been a part of my daily life for a whole decade, always calming me down with your PM responses and handling my bickering with a smile and positiveness.
I couldn't say the same for more then a few people outside my family.

Even today when I was an idiot you ended it on a positive note

You will be greatly missed!

cheers!

Very sad news indeed, is kind of a bitter farewell as I've personally lost close relatives to this.

Just hope you find inner peace and spend your time with your loving ones. We all thank you for what you did (ESATO project), this community I've made my closest friends to date. My blessings are with you and your family.
