A farewell to you all and a Poem to You Friends and to My Love

3년 전

Well My friends. It is with a heavy heart that I bid farewell for a while and honestly possibly permanently as my health tumbles. This is a poem to my love as you know and also a heart felt thank you to all of you. You are all my friends. I am forever grateful for the time here and the friendships made. I hope you all come back every once in a while to read my posts and I hope we have made an impact on your lives in a good way. I ask if you can resteem this post as I would be so thankful that my message reaches all of you. I will miss the digital bear hugs from you all my friends. When I came here to Steemit the intent was to just vent about my situation and the love that burns in my soul for @lynncoyle1. I am here to say that if any of you could ever meet her in person you would know that she was put here as that special angel to listen to all, never judgemental and her love is so real, so intense and will last a lifetime. I know that meeting her here is to her like meeting in person. The joy and the unique situation of Steemit makes this possible. I have seen her talk to me about you all. The tears , laughter or the squeal of delight she gets from stories and actually learning something new here. I know now why the moment I saw her I knew hat I had to have her. Love her, protect her and most of all worship her. Thank you my Babylooo.

To me steemit friends I wish you all a good life and those friends here fighting like me or struggling I will drop by and hold your hand if needed and say prayers each day.

I can say this now



What is the love of a Friend?

Friendship is a strong thread
Which can never be broken
It's a part of the spider web
That holds the web strong and tight

Friendship is everlasting
its a sign of accomplishment
And can only be destroyed
When death comes by

Friendship is like a delicate leaf
which is smooth soft and beautiful
Which once destroyed
Can never be the same again

It is a thing which connects
Two human souls with a bond of love
The strength that carries us through

Friendship is unbreakable
It strengthens with Love, affection and care.
It is the greatest gift anyone can give you
The gift of there heart as a friend

To you my Love (@lynncoyle1)

You know as I continue to fight this cancer
It feels like a war and I am losing ground
My heart is being pierced by a lancer
Its growing quiet and i hear no sound

My heart beats strong and my soul burns with fire
The body grows weak and on it the cancer will feast
It's in my heart and soul that tells me it's you I desire
so in those places I wage the war against this beast

The day will come when I no longer wake
Fear not as I see that determination in your face
But believe me you have made my world shake
Keep living your life and adventures like you are in outer space

I will worship you until hell freezes over and earth stands still
Even though in the end the Cancer has made it's kill
I am but a whisper away and should you ever need me
I am the Raven that swoops down wings spread for you to see

I am but a whisper that you can call when you are lonely and sad
No worries my love, I am here so there is no need to get mad
At night when you go to bed and slowly go to sleep
I am sitting on the edge of the bed so there is no need to weep

During the night you will toss and turn as you dream
Again no worries my love, I am holding your hand as we were a team
I will strive to still guide you further in your life
Because you Babylooooooooo were the most amazing wife

Continue to live as lifes lessons never cease to teach
Remember our walks along a beautiful Sandy white beach
So I sit and wait with our pets for you to arrive beside me
Then once again we can snuggle, chat and drink some tea

So when I die just lean over and kiss me one more time
Whisper in my ear some lovely words that rhyme
Goodbye is not a word for us when I pass from this cancer
Once it ends I will again be that funny awesome beautiful dancer

I will wait forever for you so do not rush to be with me
I am an angel thats here to help guide people up here for God to see
I will do this job as I have lived and always tried my absolute best
when you get there I can smile because I continued to do my best

So Live Love and Laugh My Babyloooo
Remember our dreams even the ones that fell short
Because its you that gave me the thrill of my lifetime
and even the sands of time could not change it

Thank you for the poem and for the courage you continue to show. Wishing you and Lynn all the strength in the universe as you fight this.


Thanks my amazing friend. You are a true friend who kept in touch and lifted my spirits in so many ways. More than I could ever say. You be safe and remeber in our one life to live, love and laugh

There is still hope Brian.
For 12 years now I have been dealing with many diagnosis's Prostate being one.
The CAUSE to most illnesses is OVER EXPOSURE to EMF's.


The Doctors know shit about EMF's my friend.
Learn now how to protect yourself and watch your health get better.
I hope to do a post about EMF's Electromagnetic Frequencies.


I pray this link helps you and others.

Best hospital in the USA "Dallas,TX " dealing with EMF's - https://www.ehcd.com/

We ALL here on Steemit LOVE YOU BOTH!



You probably want to get rid of all your inner fluids which allow magnetic resonance imaging then too ...


inner fluids?


Thanks for the links. I'm big into natural remedies. I hate 5G & geoengineering.


your welcome... will do post soon.


I am looking forward to your post as you are the first one who seems real while taking about the effects of electromagnetic waves

So beautiful..


You have been an inspiration to us all Brain and Lynn as well. Prayers and Thoughts out to you both.

Brian I knew from Lynn that things were going worse from you, that and I hadn't heard from you on Discord. It's sad that you feel this might be your last post here, but glad you said we will keep in touch on discord. When you sent me the message yesterday I couldn't come here to read the post...odd right? Something that I knew was coming sooner or later, just kept holding out hope it would be later.

I have enjoyed our chats and becoming friends who have yet to meet in real life. Truly hope one day we get to grab that beer together.


I will still be on discord. Tell Wolfhart to keep well and fight hard. You my friend are an amazing person. Lokk ater your great family and I have something planned lol just for you. Beers we will have in this life or the next.


Funny you worded it that way about the beers, had it almost word for word like that and then changed it to try and stay more positive. Wolf hart is fighting hard and even came back to judge this week to give Lynn the week off. He said it would be good for him to have a mental break from everything. It's an off week for the Kemo so he has some downtime. Then he's back at the Kemo next week.

Not sure if I should be excited or scared....I remember what we did to Lynn with the clowns...so you having something planned for me could go either way...lmao.


I tossed in a vote since Brian was running low on ammo.


Thank you, saves the dust!


cant upvote. no voting strength lol. anyway my brother I am keeping positive but the blood in bathroom duties and i even spit it up. Thats scary but pat of the process. Much love


Keep strong brother. Sure all of it must be overwhelming at times. Just take a breath and look at Lynn and remember your Why.

You have not only been blessed with life, you have blessed so many others too. Thank you so much for being here and I know you and Lynn will never be forgotten by any of us!


Thanks so much my amazing friend, You keep the beack healthy and I pray you take your mom to many movies my brother. Look after my girl and if not in this life i will wait forever for us to have that cervaza in the sky. much love bro

I have not met you and Lynn before today. I am part of the steemitweekly team. Today we posted your story on our weekly. I can not imagine dealing with this. I can not even hold back the pain I feel for both of you.

Your story has touched me in a very profound way. Please don't lose hope, even in the worst circumstances we still can stay friends with hope. Hope is something we can keep close to us even after we have given up on everything else.

If you will stay hopeful and not forget that we don't know what is next after this shell we call a body is gone. Maybe we are just seeds and until we are planted in the earth we have not even been born? Maybe the beginning of life is what happens when we are buried? When we become one with the soil we came from? Just maybe there is no reason to be sad or sorrowful because we don't really know what is going on?

Please don't lose hope, please don't forget we are just like a blade of grass that withers in the sun.

There is so much more to this life than what we experience daily. So much we don't have a clue about.

I am a hard a calloused man, my life has been rough and without much mercy. I have faced more than most people can fathom but I still have not faced this. Our world is a brutal place from our finite knowledge of how things work. I hope we are all wrong about the end of the story.

So trust and hope that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

My family will keep you in our prayers.


@iamstan. Thank you. I am so exhausted. I will reach out after Thanksgiving if that's ok. Hugs


Lynn definitely is a special woman and it does feel like we've gotten to meet you both in person. It would be great to actually meet you in person sometime, but even if that doesn't happen, our lives have been better for having known each other.

There's much in life that you can do to have fun, but oftentimes, the things that are the most enjoyed or fondly remembered are those that were done with a close friend. It's the people that make the occasion special. Thanks for your friendship over the last year, even encouraging me when I was having hard times.

Man, that's beautiful! I know Lynn will cherish those words for many years to come. Your love for each other is a great example for anyone who wants to know how a marriage is supposed to look.

Still praying for you to get more long walks on the beach together and to get that more dips in the ocean!


Our lives have definately been better for meeting here. Steemit has changed my life and in my heart I do believe and know that some people here will meet my girl face to face. I will remember not spending one dime on a date with Lynn and to this day it is my most precious memory. Truly that day burns in my soul. I wish our friendship could be so much longer but if not you to my friend have made my days encouraging too. I will forever be there to help guide all of the one that God allows me too. Peace my brother. Every day hug your wife tight as life is way to freakin short. Live, Love and Laugh every chance you get

@briancourteau no matter where you are you will always feel our digital hugs and as for @lynncoyle1, when I get to meet her there will be real hugs and maybe even some tears. You are a shining light and there is no way I'm going to say goodbye. XXXXXXX


Thank you for the not saying goodbye. I biggest fear is not dieing but being forgotten. Believe it or not that by far is my one fear. Thank you my dear friend. Make sure you meet my girl someday. I told her to do like the steve miller song. Take the money and run. Meet these friends. lol hugs and well wishes. I will still be on discord for a while I hope


OMG there is no way in the world you will be forgotten, you have no idea how much your story has touched me and many others and we will always have your posts here on the block. And yep I do hope one day I will get to meet your girl, it would me my honor and pleasure :-)

Not sure what to say here, other than stay strong!

PS: Beautiful poem!


No words needed my friend. Just taking the time to read this makes me smile. If you had a chance you could visit Lynns post for all our story. Anyway Thank you and in ife just live each day happy. its way too short regardless


My heart is with the both of you here. You are insanely brave and inspiring. You’ve touched the hearts of so many here. Thank you fir allowing us a peek into your personal life. We can all learn a world from you. ♥️


very gracious words my friend. They made me speachless. Thank you


I’m humbled brother, but we are the ones in awe.

What a beautiful poem, in such difficult circumstances. We all have to face our mortality, but only a very few of us are able to look it straight in the eye and face it with courage, offering strength for our loved ones.


your words have brought me to tears. Thank you so much for the most beautiful comment Ihave read today. You have given me motivation today


Thankyou Brian. They were inspired by your beautiful poem.

Unfortunate that I just got to know you now via this post, yet you do seem to be a great guy with a wonderful lady beside you.
Never give up man, faith and will can be great life changers, I believe in miracles and the body's power of healing, we live in a mystical world that science is far from completely (or even minimally) comprehending.
Fight, fight, fight and stay strong ! I do hope to keep reading you again :)


Been too tired this week to respond. Thank you so much my friend. I fight to fight another days

@braincourteau, normally I have so much to say....its difficult to say goodbye. You are eternalized in my mind and on the Steem blockchain. Yes, I will go back and read all the old stuff but for now I'll focus my energy towards you and Lynn. Thank you both for sharing this with me (us).

Digital bearhugs from me and Leila (and Bandit and Oscar)

ps: Your poems are great. Mixed feelings tho... It makes you cry and smile at the same time

"Friendship is everlasting
its a sign of accomplishment
And can only be destroyed
When death comes by"

We will keep the friendship alive.....


I truly have not answered this comment. It is so emotional in so many ways. I am amzed that ou will always go back to read and I give just as many hugs back to you and all of you. Hug Bandit and Oscar and tell them I will be at the rainbow bridge with my dogs and they can hang with me.

This is the very first post that I have read on this site and my heart both swells and breaks for your fortune. You obviously have a beautiful heart and have been blessed with an equally beautiful partner. My thoughts and good wishes are sent your way during this awful time. Please continue to fight as this earth cannot afford to lose such a beautiful soul.


I sent you something too. Thank you my dear new friend. Steemit is an awesome place. Visit my girl @lynncoyle1 for any help you need. She is the angel here on the platform. To me anyway.

Good to hear from you again. I am very happy to see you both together and loving each other. That is something that most of the rest of the world will never experience.

Love at first sight.
Makes you soar like an eagle in flight.

Till death do us part.
A pledge not many take too heart.

A love burning so hot, a feeling taking you so high.
Much like Icarus's last flight, but this is not goodbye.

Fear not getting your new wings and meeting St. Peter at the gate.
I know in my heart of hearts that you will tell him you can not enter without your true love and there you will wait.

We love ya brother and we are all hoping for a miracle every day.


this is so beautiful. I am thankful my friend for meeting you. I am not afraid of dieing but of have my soul alone until the day she comes to me. I hope its a long time of course but where ever I am it feels like a second. much love and please stay close to lynn. many tough roads ahead. Much love my good friend, much love

A lot of us have been talking about your post and about @lynncoyle1's posts... we're all so very moved and touched by what you're going through that we don't have the words to respond. I just deleted, re-pasted, edited and re-edited the last sentence 3 times just to finally make it be right.

It's probably still not right. Here's what I've been wanting to tell you both for days. I hope it comes out okay...

Brian- your dignity and grace in the face of the Great Inevitable is so unbelievably... so gut-wrenchingly, heartbreakingly beautiful. Thank you for showing us how to do it so well. I hope that when my time comes, I will be able to invoke some of the strength you've shown here. I admire you so much. I'm just sorry I never found you until now because I bet, back before getting ready to die became your main focus in life, you were a total badass facing all the other crap life tosses at us. I hope that you know how meaningful it is that you're sharing this part of your life with us here. You are on your way TO something wonderful, as awful as it is to be on your way AWAY from your family.

@lynncoyle1... babe... please remember that death isn't bad news for the dying. It's just that it hurts so bad for us that stay behind to miss our friends. If you haven't already seen this old poem, I hope it will help... if you have, I hope it will remind you that Brian is about to embark on a new journey that you, yourself will join him on eventually. Please keep doing what you're doing. It's the exact, right, perfect thing! We love both of you very much so whenever it gets darkest, remember that we're all right here.

To everyone else who is struggling to write a meaningful comment, it's not your fault. We're trained to revile death. It's the worst boogieman ever in a lot of cultures and that training is total bullshit! We can't even say "he died".. we say, "he passed away" or some other such flowery nonsense. If you're finding it hard to tell Brian and Lynn your feelings because you're worried about how best to construct them appropriately, remember this: there is nothing more appropriate than dying. It is what we all will do. Don't let the words trip you up. Reach out now while you have the chance to. And While you're at it, hug your kids, call your moms and treat yourself to a second helping of dessert. It's later than you think!


I will answer this next week. I am in awe at your words. Literally blown away. I want to word my response as elegant and beautiful as yours

@briancourteau dammit, you made me cry at work. Hang on to her as long as you can. You know I only want peace for you and no more suffering. Of course the best for both of you. Yes, I hope this is just a dip and you'll bounce back, especially since I haven't gotten to come to meet you. No matter what I will go to Mike 'The Headless' Chicken festival just for you.

I truly love both of you like family and always want the best for you guys. As always your poems are amazing. 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜


Sorry for making you cry. I know you wish peace for me but honestly the pain I have is worth every breath I share with Lynn. You know what I have never called her Lynn ever you know that. Ask her. She is always and forever my Babyloooo


I would be the same way, fighting until my last breath. Don't be sorry. I'm just over sentimental these days. I don't want you to stop fighting. I want you two to have as much time as you can squeeze out.

brian, we don't know each other, but what you have written has really touched many,

thank you for positively impacting so many people all over the world with your presence here......you're a gift to this world, and i'm sure many are better off because of you

may you have peace and love surrounding you in your journey


I have no words and for me thats a rarity. I cannot thank you enough for your comment. You have made my day, given me strength. Thank you my friend and please read my girls blog lynncoyle1. she likes new friends too. Peace

Lovely poem Brian.

I'm a little lost for words, but thinking of you both. x


you at a loss for words. Just kidding my friend. I jast ask that you keep doing, keep living. You are a awesome friend and one I know my girl will need. When does one in life meet her favorite good egg on a platform.



Totally poor choice of words there, apologies and thanks for making a joke!

It would be a pleasure to meet you both, and again, thank you for sharing your time with us.


no no no.....I loved your comment. I was joking with you lol. I meant nothing by my joke


Yes I gathered, an excellent way to take my embarrassment away - a sign of a good man :)

A very touching post and poetry as well. Made me a bit emotional and helped me reflect a bit. Thank you for sharing your light with us. Much love to you friend.


You my friend were one of my first friends here. Thank you for the time, the eyes here by reading my story. I am forever grateful.My girl will have many a tough road ahead. help her along if you can


You're welcome. And understood. Thank you as well. <3

I am quite in shocked and not sure what to say but you are very brave to share this with the community. Beautiful poem and I wish you both all the best and strength. Kind of lost for words after reading this.


Well you could read older ones and you should read my girls lynncoyle1 posts, thanks for reading and actually any feelings in a comment are worth sharing. Peace

Keeping you in my prayers Brian. Thank you for sharing your heart with us again.


thanks my friend. Your words too Lynn are thoughtful. I do still think of your dad along with mine almost daily. Your chats with me have helped me deal with things sometimes differently and peaceful. Thanks and stay in touch with Lynn ok please. She has a hard road ahead

Good luck to you. Beautiful poem.


beautiful comment. Much thanks. Live life each day smiling


Thank you for the good cheer. I will do it!

This is so touching. I am sure everyone reading shed a few tears, I know I did. I am so sorry you are going through this. Stay strong.❤️


Thank you for reading my post. I have come to terms with it all. I am not afraid to die but to leave my girl is hard. Remember to live life always to the fullest. dont let anyone change you. just


I hope you get better soon. What a beautiful poem. I would be sad to lose talent like that and the warm comforting spirit it came from.

Much Love and Healing! I believe in you guys! May your paths be smooth and straight.


very very beautiful words. Thanks my friend, truly


So very beautiful. It speaks to me without words. Much much thanks.

Brian, this is my first hello message to you and possible my good bye. I have been communicating with Lynn all the time and am aware of your situation. It's really sad to read this, from someone whom I've never met, but feels like I know pretty well. I hope that with what time you have left, every moment will be filled with beautiful memories that you and Lynn and your family will cherish for forever. Stay strong.


So much love in your comment and its very muc appreciated. I ffight to fill my time exactly as you stated, with memories and love

Nice to hear from you once more.
I'm wiping off tears after reading that beautiful poem. Not so long ago a person I (and many others) valued a lot has lost his life.
Again, I wish @lynncoyle1 and you a lot of strength.


I am exhausted this week. I will answer next week. Sorry


No sobd my friend. Thank you for being with us and me on my journey

This almost moved me to tears. I wish you strength to fight and come out of this with your head held high. I wish to hear from you again.


I always fight wit my head high. Thank you for yur comment and its these types that keep me motivated

I haven't had the pleasure of knowing you or Lynn, but I have had the pleasure of sharing this platform with you both; I'm sorry to hear of what you're going through together.


much thanks my new firend. its the platform that keeps me fighting


Hopefully that small upvote will contribute to the medical bills; and I hope things improve for you, Brian. Keep fighting!

I am speechless 💔💔💔
I don't know you very well but I follow you babyloo and I can attest to the fact that she is a wonderful person. She supported me during my early stage on this platform and I am forever grateful. Please cherry these last moments with her. Say everything and have as many laughs as you can.

I too am speechless. great words you took the time to write. You stay in touch with Lynn my girl. She will need her friends here. Thank you

This isn't a goodbye, @briancourteau, because friendship can never be destroyed, in spite of what you say in your poem. You and @lynncoyle1 both have changed my life and my vision of it forever. Your strength, courage and love for life and each other inspires me every day again. It's something I will carry with me and try to pass along to others. You have made a difference - you still do. And no way I will forget that - ever!
A big virtual hug for you, and give one to your lovely wife from me too. Xxx


You are truly a great friend here. Thank you for being with me for my journey. I am ok and content. I fight each day but the energy is hard to keep. The problem is I am ok with death but certainly not ok with leaving my soul mate and love of my life. Thanks. here is something cool that someone here sent us

courtesy of uynimeetuk


Thanks. I can't even imagine what you both are going through, but I can understand that it takes a lot of energy to keep fighting every day again. And that having to leave your soulmate is one of the hardest things to do. If only I'd be religious, I could at least say I'd pray for you both. But I'm not religious at all, so I can only tell you you're both in my thoughts and my heart, and that I wish you all the courage and strength you need xx

Thanks for making me both, cry and laugh in timespan of 10 seconds Brian :)

Best of luck and be happy together♥️

Çok güzel şiir ve okurken çok duygulandım yüreğine sağlık


hopefully thanks

I have no words (only such an ache in the heart), this is a beautiful message that you have left for your beloved.


Thanks my friend. Everytime I see you pop by I think of my favorite childhood movie spelt Benji..........Anyway thanks for being here, and look in on Lynn ok....keep her company


Sure thing! I'll be around to chat with her...

I've never seen the movie, but I'm glad it gives you good memories to associate with my handle!

Oh Brian- you and @lynncoyle1 have been such a part of my steemit world for the last year or more. My heart is breaking- when I see pictures of the two of you... the smiles on both your faces and the obvious love shared... I can't help but cry.

You two have come to be known in my head as my Mexico living steemit friends. All your journeys together and posts about your life down there.

Sending you both blessings and love to get you through this.


Hey you, Thanks for the words, slow to respond, not much energy. You know what I do alot last few days. I stare at my girl and watch the movements as I am still in awe at her beauty. I am lucky too because the inner beauty is twice as hot as the outer beauty. I am not afraid of dieing but of have my soul alone until the day she comes to me. I hope its a long time of course but where ever I am it feels like a second. much love and please stay close to lynn. many tough roads ahaead

Thank you for the blessing of your spirit in this world.

Hi @briancourteau... It's really good the feelings about of this post ...nice poetry ... really so good ...

Brian, you and @lynncoyle1 are very special people. You have opened your hearts and shared the toughest time in your lives. When it would be easy to shut yourselves away in self-pity, you have showed us that your love is true, solid and an inspiration to others.

When your time comes, it will not be goodbye, for you are a true Warrior with an honourable and fighting spirit, and I have no doubt, we shall meet again in Valhalla.

We will take good care of @lynncoyle1


These words brought me tears my amigo. my friend. Thanks for the saying I am a warrior, actually I am a guy who loves his girl so much I am terrified to kiss her goodbye, I do hope we meet again in Valhalla.

You are blessed beyond blessed, and we are all super thankful to know you and your lady love @lynncoyle1. Keep on fighting and we will keep on praying. Always. 🙏🏿💜🙏🏿💜🙏🏿

much love right back at you

😢😢😢😢😭 I can't write anything


Its ok my friend. No words are needed. Lynn and I know you are here. How about this. I will write for both of us ok.

Here goes

Over time people meet in many different ways and you have been here with lnn and now me almost since you joned here. You are family, a friend, and I hope you will always be happy. Live life to the fullest. I am not afraid of dieing but of have my soul alone until the day she comes to me. I hope its a long time of course but where ever I am it feels like a second. much love and please stay close to lynn. many tough roads ahead.

Many hugs and much love to you my dear friend. I will meet you one day in another place.


I love this one @briancourteau but another river has running on my cheeks from the first word and I promise you that I'll be with @lynncoyle1 for you even though we never met before but I feel like both of you so close to me and I can reach you in my mind anytime I want. I don't want to burden you with my tears, you are the raven anyway, stronger than the storm is. Thanks for your warm words and I'll see you in another place and we can talk about your journey and what you've seen with your big wing and eyes open. Love from both of us for both of you (well.. it must be four of you, because Buddy and Wolfie included)

Dear Brian, I've been interacting a lot more with @lynncoyle, but you are also in my heart. I always get happy whenever I see a picture of you together, you are the example of a loving couple. You both have good hearts and I wish this all wasn't happening to you.. Glad to read you have peace with it all, that's something that takes strength!

Your poems are beautiful, and I'm sure many of the Steemit members, and your lovely wife will read them over and over again. I read that you are afraid to be forgotten, please know that each and every one of us that has followed your story, will have you in our heart forever. You have touched many hearts, maybe more than you know..

I find it amazing that a person I've never met in real life can make such an impact.. but it's true you both did. I hope you will be able to make some more wonderful memories together with your loved ones, and that your last journey will be a peaceful one ...


ps: If I will be able to come to Mexico, I hope I will meet @lynncoyle1 so I can finally give her a real hug!


These words brought me tears, many tears. You know I am afraid f only one thing and thats being forgotten. Its a terrible fear I have. Thank you for saying you will read my posts time and again, Means alot. Much love and I truly mean it. Please visit, chat and look after her ok even if its here on Steemit. I am not afraid of dieing but of have my soul alone until the day she comes to me. I hope its a long time of course but where ever I am it feels like a second. much love and please stay close to lynn. many tough roads ahead. Thanksd for the words you wrte again. Hugs Brian


I'm so sorry that I made you cry! I believe @lynncoyle1 has made friends for life alone on Steemit, I can't imagine how many people must love her there where you live.. I told my boyfriend about this post yesterday and how nice it would be to meet Lynn one day, he actually told me when you want, just book it :-) I've never been to Mexico (was on my list for years though) and I'm not sure how that would be with a toddler (flying that many hours) but my intentions are to visit next year.. Tell that to Lynn ok? She promised me to show me around :)

I hope you can let go of that fear you have, because how can people forget you when you have made such a huge impact on them even while we're on the other side of the world. Please don't be afraid, try to bend that into some positive moments with your loved ones instead.

Much love from Budapest!


Well isn't it funny. My bucket list is Budapest lol. I will let Lynn know to expect you. Mexico is ok even with a toddler. You will have no better guide than my Babyloooo. She is an amazing person that has. Heart that beats love and kindness. Talk soon ok. I am exhausted this week. Hugs and always much love

Dear Brian,
I am speechless as always, I wish I can do more but I know otherwise. I can only say I'm glad I know you and Lynn, you have inspired many as a fighter, I can only wish you continue to have all the strength you need to fight this. Love, Joe


Much Love rightback at you. Thanks for being in my girls life here on steemit. I will see you all on the other side. I am not afraid of dieing but of have my soul alone until the day she comes to me. I hope its a long time of course but where ever I am it feels like a second. much love and please stay close to lynn. many tough roads ahead


Don't worry, many of us will be here for Lynn whenever she needs it.
Big HUG to you Brian!


peace and hugs to you my friend

Dear Brian - i just arrive at your blog and i am deeply impressed by your story (i like to read about you and your love ...)

Whiping away my tears i wish you good luck for your next journeys - we never know... My advice is no medicine or alternative doctor but the knowledge, that you can't fight against cancer - you have to accept it in your life, get in touch and talk with it and begin to love it. There is no war in the world that makes everyone a winner...

Viel Glück für deine weiteren Reisen, wohin auch immer und höre auf zu kämpfen. Kampf ist kein Heilungsweg!!!! Love and light for you both!


ery beautiful words. I do fight and will continue too. but when the time comes its not that I am not afraid of dieing but of have my soul alone until the day she comes to me. I hope its a long time of course but where ever I am I hope it feels like a second. Much love and Thanks.

You two are the epitome of what true love stands for. I know I do not know either of you in person, but we have all been with the both of you every step of the way. Brian this is the most beautiful compilation of words for a woman, your wife that truly is a one in a million soul! You two are just phenomenal!! The unwavering strength you both display is commendable on so many levels!

I am at a loss for words actually but my heart is with you both!

Much love!!!!!

Thank you for Being YOU @briancourteau <333 Please know that You & @lynncoyle1 are held tightly in my heart & prayers. Keeping the faith and the flow of healing energies coming your way BeautyFull Soul <333

Keep fighting mate, sorry I didn't get the chance to know you better as I only joined the steemitbloggers a couple of weeks ago but that was a heart moving poem and was feeling every word.

Sending all the positive vibes I can - keep dancing

Sending love to both of you

Thank you for the wonderful poem. I wish you all the best, my prayers have always been with you and @lynncoyle1.

Much love

@briancourteau wonderful, beautiful words. Wise, too. I met you through @lynncoyle1 and @steemitbloggers. You are both often in my thoughts and my wish for you both is love, peace, light and if at all possible, some laughter, as you take this final journey. Do know, and I am sure you do, there are.people all over the world who care for @lynncoyle1. And if she is ever in South Africa, a place is set at our table for her, and our door is open.

Peace and love to you both

Thank you for sharing your love and your strength.

this is utterly beautiful and my heart constricts as I read your beautiful poetry. God bless you and give you both comfort and meet your needs day by day. I did not know you, but I just was stopped by and bid you love, peace and comfort.

thank you for the poem and the lovely write up, and everyone of your friends will forever carry you in their hearts, you have touched so many in a very special way.

My heart felt so heavy reading this. It could tear anytime. I am sending love to you and your babylooo...

So much strength and courage to write this. Bless you with alot of strength and grace to carry on and to fight on.


My dear friend. My girl talks about you often. Keep her safe here at steemit. I thank you and I am forever grateful. Tired this week. Hugs and chat soon I hope

I read your story from resteem my friend @el-nailul. We don't know each other, but what you have written has really touched many, special to me. This story makes me cry. Be amazed at your struggle and affection. Be amazed at the loyalty that your lover has. Hopefully there is still time to get to know you both more. It's a pleasure I can give this comment, especially if you have time to read it. You have lots of love for everyone. I will remember this story. Beautiful story and second to none. A big hug for you two, hopefully be strong and steadfast.

You are a very talented writer. I would hate for the world to lose you on an inexperienced doctor's account. Please visit my website here http://www.elderson.info/healthylife/

And watch this video Dead Doctors Dont Lie. If you would like to take a try at it I would love to show you a life saving National plan. I have a personal testimony as a combat veteran to back that up.

Much Love from Las Vegas


Thanks so much. will contact you when back after 23rd


@briancourteau Happy to hear that. I'll be here waiting for you.

The best to both of you. ❤️

It is difficult for me to write when tears come unbidden and cloud my vision after reading this remarkable tribute to your friends and more importantly to your beautiful wife, Brian. They aren't really tears of sadness and sorrow but tears of awe which have welled up from deep within my soul because this is where your love song has reached..........Your inspired and annointed words have touched the untouched parts of my soul because I have come face to face with true love and dedication and it is a very healing thing to encounter.

How many millions of lovers pledge to remain faithful to their partners, "In Sickness and in Health"........."For Richer or For Poorer" yet fail when the going gets tough? What you and Lynne have shared during your marriage is what everyone longs for in a relationship, but sadly, not many are willing to love unconditionally and with a sacrificial kind of love that puts the other one first, over an extended period of time.

I'm sure Lynne has engraved those poignant words of yours into her heart and soul and I have no doubt that she couldn't wish for a more protective and caring angel to watch over her when your spirit leaves your body Brian. Your spirit, which is the true essence of you, remains. It lives forever and the day that your two spirits and souls re-unite will be one of joyful celebration.

I love your phrase: "I am but a whisper away." It speaks of intimacy, and everlasting love. I can't thank you enough for sharing your strength and faith with us all. It means so much. May God Bless you both and may you feel His loving presence every single minute.


I will reach out soon. Tired so tired this week. Your words are elegant and so thoughtful. Much love and thanks


No need to reply @briancouteau Just know that those words are genuine and you and Lynne are in my thoughts and prayers. Much love to you both dear friend. 🌺🌺

I dont really know what to say right now other than this is a beautiful tribute that will be saved forever on the blockchain. I want to wish your and your amazing wife strength while you are going through this time. Your story is touching lives across the world and you are leaving your mark with all of us. Thank you.

This brought tears to my eyes. You have a beautiful soul.


Thank you. Late response and I am sorry for that. Tired and slow this week. Hugs friend

@briancourteau, it is so short time for me to know you much better, I wish and I pray to see you little more time. Big hug!, it is really hard time for all of us to say goodbye for you, but you are always in my heart and our heart. I Love you from the bottom of my heart. I pray for your peace!


thanks so much. the words are veri helpful in my fight. motivates me. much love friend

Hi there @briancourteau my prayers are with you and Lynn. Strength and peace for both of you. I am glad that you do have each other. Hold on tight and don't let go! I am hoping that things will turn around for you. Thank you for sharing your journey with us and showing us how live even when things are tough!

I am sorry that I didn't get a chance to get to know you earlier. You write poetry superbly well!

Nice post Brian. I was really touched with every word you said. I'm so happy for you that you have met someone very special and someday I hope that I will to. I will upvote/resteem this post so that others can read as well. I've followed you to read more of your posts in the future. I hope that you will do the same. Have a good day @briancourteau!

Yes, friendships are like tender leaves. Just in times for the leaves to turn color. Often times, they turn green again in the spring. A time for and a time for that. Thanks for sharing. I'm Oatmeal.

In a comment on your sweet wife's last post, I said:

In reading your posts over the past year, I feel like I've been reading one of the greatest love stories of all time, seriously. Yours and Brian's compatibility, love, and dedication to each other is amazing.

You and Lynn have left a mark on our hearts and lives that will always be there. Always. Blessings to you, and virtual hugs to you both... ❤️

although i do not know you. i don't want you to go.
eliminate every single thing that even smells of civilization, watch what you eat and watch what you drink, whatch what you wear, throw out every synthetic, watch what shampoo you use, toss them out. whatch what soap you use. , whatch where you sleep, matrasses are made of cancerous material. which builds up over time.

while you are breathing you can still recover.

you are in my prayers. steadfast for recovery, there are millions of people who have done it!

even paint on the wall nowadays can give a person cancer.
(but it does not happen over night it takes years to build up in body)
baking soda against cancer ,as i have seen many russian scientists claiming it gets rid of it.

perfectly, it would be best if a person can retreat in the cabin in woods and eat everything thats green. eliminating the cause. will signal body to instantly attack the fungus in body, as russians scientists say it is a fungus. and it cannot live in alkaline environment.

so dont give up my friend.
i dont want you to go.

although i do not know you.
i don't want you to go.
while you are breathing,
you can still recover.
so dont give up my friend.
i dont want you to go.

Good wishes from me to you

Soar long, soar high, keep up the fight for as long as you are able.

Thoughts are with you and @lynncoyle1 travel safely to family, hold on, no-one knows what is around the next corner.

I've been reading your story and that of your wife for a short time now. I just never 'found' you guys any time before that. However, I just never knew how to respond and what to say, and it seemed like everything I would say would be wrong. So I didn't. This time I feel like I have to. Not because this may be your last post (for a while) but because your words took my breath away...Somehow, a sad story and sad time, made me cry and laugh at the same time. I can see and feel the love the two of you have for each other, and it doesn't seem fair that something like this ugly disease had to grasp you. But somehow, in none of your words, I ever heard defeat. I have great respect for you both and even though we never spoke, some love too.

Made me cry again. Stay strong, sending prayers for you both.
This I can say without a doubt, you will never be forgotten.

I am reading this poem alone in a coffeeshop, thinking of how beautiful life is for spending time with so much love with someone you are ready to leave earth because life was more than enough for a memory. Dying is no longer fear when you have lived the best, loved the sweetest and laughed the hardest with someone that's specially made for you. I am inspired. I thank this coffee latte for warming up my days as much as warming up my mind as I read your poetry. It brings a lot of sincerity and true love. Life is truly beautiful.

Brian, I have never been very good with platitudes or condolences because the words always seem empty for the occasion. Please accept this instead:

We cannot be certain of the hereafter because we each perceive our own. One thing I can be sure of is that, someday, in some frame of reference, I'll see you again somewhere near Tau Ceti Three and we can chat.

You bring the wine and I'll bring the coffee.

You, too, Lynn.

Time will be ours.


much love back

Hugs to you and Lynn! You both are true inspiration to us all!

Aww.. @briancourteau. I don't really know what to say reading this but it is truly my pleasure o know your journey and story with @lynncoyle1 through Steemit. This is a beautiful poem and it depicts strongly that death does not have its fangs on you when you no longer fear it or let it paralyze you. That's who I feel you are. Peace and love to you, hugs to you both! I am still wishing and blessing you with wellness and abundant life!

Well @briancourteau this is the first time I have responded to your posts. I started corresponding with @lynncoyle1 on a post I did about celebrating life.
You two are both so brave and I can see you two are making the most out of this life you have with so much love. It is beautiful to see the love and devotion you have for each other and I'm so happy to have come to meet you both here on Steemit.
I do hope I will have more meetings with you both.
You are wonderful people to have in my life. So uplifting!
Lots of love to you both!

You both are in our prayers and hearts. I have faith that you two will pull through out of this even stronger together. Cherish these moments together and we WILL all get to meet one day. So stay strong Brian. Take care of each other.

Wish you well sir, beautiful 🙏

Im not familiar w your situation but please check out fasting & cancer. I just finished a 23 day fast.

Blessings to you and yours.


actually have tried lots of things. Just believing i am needed elsewhere. Thanks for the blessings. Much thanks

Dearest Brian, I totally missed this post. So sorry.

Your poems touch, move and inspire us and all Life for eternity. Your gift for words and expressing them in such a heartfelt way is so healing. Thank you for being truly you. Thank you for sharing your humor, your joy, your outrage, sadness, courage, smiles.

Love you, love you, love you. You and Lynn are an ongoing glimpse in to what true Twin Soul love is. Bless you both for that and sending hugzzz and Angel Blessings always. xxx

That is such beautiful poems Brian ❤️
You have such a beautiful heart and much love and the love between you two is such a inspiration like no other. 🤗
I wish you and Lynn all the best and my thoughts and heart are with you both! ❤️
You will be missed here and thank you for all you have brought to us ❤️❤️❤️🌹

This is soooo beautiful. Despite the pain ahead, you and your wife are so incredibly lucky to have shared your life and love. And even as a stranger I can tell the love is strong.

I am sorry to have only run into here at the end of your time on steemit. I am more sorry you are being forced from this beautiful life with so much love left to share. Sending strength and peace to you, your wife and all of your loved ones.


Brian, Lynne and I have become good friends. Simply, she is the most likeable person on the blockchain. I call her Steemit's Homecoming Queen. There will be many swords that will draw to protect her in your absence. Mine will be one.

I too am a poet and have tutored many in the art. Many people believe that poetry is about the mechanics: Meter, rhythm and rhyme. But as I have repeatedly written, such literary techniques are but tools that force-multiply that which underlies: An idea, ideal or insight ... and, anything times zero, is still zero.

As I read your poems, I was struck by the sincerity of the sentiment. Your tribute to Lynn is a Force of Will, a concentration of conviction so intense that it becomes palpable.

Lynne is a lucky gal ... and you are a lucky guy.



Thank you so much. I am so tired this week trying to be happy for Lynn's family Thanksgiving. I will reach out soon. Much love and hugs my friend

Just reading your story for first time, my prayers are with you and your loved ones. I have no idea what you are dealing with, curious, have you tried a rick simpson cbd oil regiment? At the level for incinerating cancer cells?

I've been helping people get access to these organic medicines.... there are many support groups out there. One is actually on facebook, called Cannabis Oil Success Stories, there are two or three pages same name, it's the one with 172,000 more people on that platform... there are stories of people in there 80's and 90's trying these treatments and completely turning their health around. If you are open to more information/product contact me at kimmysomelove42@gmail.com..

In my 20's I had a boyfriend, that had testicular cancer that had spread to his entire lymphatic system, kidneys etc. I started the journey then about learning about cancer and the history of the AMA.... and Dr. Hoxie..

His process took him to delete trauma frequencies with hypnosis, he did some chemo, almost killed him, shrunk all his tumors and such but kept coming back because there was deeper trauma frequencies from childhood dominant in his limbic system.. When those were accessed they can be deleted like a software update in a computer. These frequencies hold in the cells and destroy healthy cells. So, once he cleared those traumas, by observing them, his body deleted them and it never came back. In my experience, this part of any dis ease must be looked at, and seek assistance from QHHT practitioners or other hypnotherapy modalities.

For many it can be environment, exposed to heavy metals, elf waves, all the microwaves and frequencies we are bombarded with just walking into a grocery store. Some of the most extensive research I found early on was a book called "cure for all cancers" by Dr. Hulda Clark... she's a bit extreme in the parasite cleanse, but proves how the presence of isopropylin glycol and many derivatives from that can create a medium in which parasites can multiply by the thousands in the liver in a 48 hour period, these types of parasites co-exist with us for millennia, however, when they are out of control and multiplying in the organs, cancer spreads fast wherever weak area of body is. Her cleanse is a life changer for anyone wanting to "change their oil" in there body. We spend how much money changing the oil in our cars every year? Our liver/kidney could use some maintenance as well.

I have the utmost high intention for you and your healing, and I sense this is not the end, but a beginning for you. You are in a beautiful place and vibration and am so happy for you to have experienced deep love with your partner this lifetime..
