Well, this is the last day of the last year that my Daddy was alive. I thought I would be happy to see this year go but, I feel a little more sad. I hate cancer.
Lost my Mom 22 years ago to colon Cancer, my Dad lived to be 85 lost him just a few years ago to old age. Their memories still live with me every day.
All the best to you.
I hope you find more peace and happiness in 2011. It is so hard when we are losing/ lose the people we love the most. I hate Cancer, too. Sending prayers your way for a peaceful 2011.

I'm so sorry for your losses. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope 2011 brings you peace.
I lost my Momma to breast cancer December 17, 1987. This holiday season it hit me more than usual I guess due to my Dads health depleating due to diabetes. This time of year is difficult. I also lost my dog Solo to lukemia on New Years Day five years ago. My brother lost his mother-in-law this past summer to cancer. She was a good lady. I dealt with issues this year by giving to others. That helped seeing something I did made others happy. I have a wife who has been there for me for 20 years when the grief hits. Surround yourself with people who support and love you. I don't know what your beliefs are but I know that my Mom is there to talk to and I do. I neglected thinking of her at times in the past I guess that was easier. I want to keep the memories so I started remembering the good times to keep her alive in my mind.
Take care of yourself
Thank you for your thoughts and for sharing with me. Even though my Dad won't be here physically anymore, he is very much alive in my heart and in my memories. I know he is in heaven where he will never suffer again and by God's grace I will see him again one day. The hurt is very real, most of the time it's all still so unbelievable but, I hope that it's true that time will ease the pain. 2011 is a new year full of new opportunities.
Again, thank you for the word
