Last night at 8:02 PacMan passed on. He had been growing weaker by the day. The vet said he had cancer and there wasn't anything we could do but try to comfort him. We had him on pain meds. He was in a low profile cage to keep him from climbing and taking a fall. He started showing signs of blood in his mouth on Monday and it seemed to be getting worse. His mate Sophie was very close to him and stayed by him constantly through all of this. Even after PacMan died she lay on top of him trying to protect and comfort him.

PacMan lived to the ripe old age of 15 years 4 months. He slowed down a little in the last year but was a real love. Seemed the older he got the sweeter he got. We miss him already. Mary will probably post later tonight.

Oh I'm so sorry. I'm sure you comforted him throughout this, and I know he must have had a very happy and healthy life. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Im so very sorry. Truly. It's so hard to lose one of our precious little friends/family members. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" />
Many are touched and amazed at the life of PacMan. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />
You had the priveledge of knowing him, he had the priveledge of knowing you, and he had a wonderful life. PacMan left this world knowing love, I dont think there is anything more important than that. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

Im so sorry for your loss of a family member... Im sorry for the Glider community's loss of a legend. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />
Im glad he is at rest now and not hurting, glad to know of the wonderful life he had, and glad you shared him with us. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" /> He will not be forgotten that's for sure.

I am so very very sorry to hear about the loss of Pacman. I know he was a very special glider to you both. The years you have had him have brought many good memories and many learning experiences that you are now able to pass on to others.
May we all be lucky enough to have our gliders with us for so long.

he will be missed deeply.

Rest in Peace Pacman. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />

Charlie, Mary..15 years 4 months. What precious people you are for your devotion. PacMan knew he was loved dearly. His longevity in this life proves it.

He went from the arms of angels here on earth to the arms of God in heaven. He's one lucky glider to have always been loved and cared for..and now will always have the same in heaven. *Tears* (((HUGS)))

I pray for your sorrow to pass without pain, he's not in pain anymore. Someday, all will be replaced with only the good memories.

Thank you Charlie and Mary (and sweet Sophie too) for all your compassion to your kids and to give all of us hope that our gliders will be so lucky to live that kind of long loving life. I'm so sorry for your loss of PacMan. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/gliderangel.gif" alt="" />

That he lived longer than most gliders we've ever heard of is such a testament to the care he got with you and Mary. I can only imagine how your heart is grieving, and I pray you'll find comfort in the fact that for all those years, he was healthy, happy and in the best of hands.

Pac Man was a wonderful boy. He provided a lot of knowledge for all of us as glider owners. He will be surely missed, but he is the leader of the pack at the bridge. Mary, you and Charlie know he is. I love you guys!

[:"green"]Charlie & Mary,
Words can't express the sorrow that I feel for both of you right now. When I got to the part about Sophie... the tears really started to flow. I will pray for her to find comfort in your love for the rest of her own days while she misses and mourns for her mate...
The two of you are incredible... 15 years 4 months is the oldest I have heard of. You're truly wonderful glider slaves.

I know that he lived a long time but its hard to believe he is gone. Mary, I know you have been worried about him for a while and I am thinking about you, Charlie and Sophie. I know there arn't really any words that can bring comfort the way we wish they would, but I know that PacMan will live forever in lots of hearts, including mine.

Mary and Charlie, I just don't what to say that hasn't already been said, but please know that I know how much Pacman meant to you both and what a special little guy he was. He really was an icon in the glider world and will be truly missed. He is at such peace from his illness now, and I pray your hearts will mend soon. It is never easy to lose one of these precious babies. Love you guys....

...It was August of 1997...for 7 years they lived without love or attention...for 7 years they suffered the abuse of an uncaring breeder who stole thier babies at the age of 3 weeks oop...and with each of those 7 years thier hate for humans steady grew. They were used only to make money and at 7 years old the profits were dwendling...so they were put out in the back yard in the heat for someone to haul off.
They were in Gods hands now...and he showed us the way. They came into our home so filled with hate and anger and we accepted the bites...the crabbing...and thier desperate fight for survival...because we understood. They were so thin and looked so bad.
It was close to 2 years before he began to mellow out. we watched his little body gain weight and his coat and his color was beautiful...I told him a million times that the day would come that he would love us and that we were not giving up...
...June of 2000...Sophie came to us. She was oop June of '98 and had never accepted another glider. We put her with Pacman and the honeymoon began...and it lasted for 5 years and 6 months. They loved with a love that's rare. There was never a fight and never a time that they were not side by side.
As he began to go down...she never left him for a moment. When we took him out for meds...she waited by the door for him and she took him back rubbing her head on him and loving on his face and you could see without doubt...she was his inspiration and he was living for her.
I wanted so bad to hold him and carry him...but I knew it was thier end times and...I'd be stealing from them both. I just couldn't do it...so we had them here in the front room and we stayed close to the cage and the four of us just loved...
We watched him take his last breath as he lay with his head on her shoulder...she never stopped loving on him...she just didn't want to let go. We let her have a few more minuets with him...and I took him. It was our time to say we love you.
She roamed the cage looking for him and then came to the door and looked at me as if to say "please make it better and bring him back to me...Please...I need him"
Thank all you for caring...thank you for remembering Pacman...not as he was for the first 7 years that he lived in a nightmare...but for the sweet angel he was in the second life that God gave him...and for his strength and determination to make Sophie happy and show us that he could make it for "15 years and 4 months"
Sophie and Charlie and

Mary

After reading your posts, most humans would be so lucky to have the relationship Sophie & PacMan had. I had tears in my eyes reading your post, Mary & Charlie. You can tell from your words just how much you loved him. And I pray for your hearts to heal and for Sophie. God bless you all.

Mary & Charlie,
What can I say except - "What a Wonderful Life!!!" Pacman and Sophie are the sugar glider version of the old James Stewart movie. They made it despite all odds. They could teach all of us humans a lesson in loving, caring, loyalty and fidelity. I know you will miss him always. How is Sophie holding up? Will be thinking of her, let us know.
