Over the past couple of days my dad had his 4 kids and 12 grandchildren surrounding him and showing him love. Although it is very hard on me to see him go his suffering is over.
The past month has been so hard on him.
I cant say enough for hospis as they were called on Tuesday and within 2 hours were there and making him comfortable. These people are saints on earth.
My Father was loved by anyone who new him and I will miss him so much. He was so concerned about my cancer and hated to see me go through this past year, But now I am doing well and he held on until he knew that. My dad was very impressed when I told him about this site and how much it has helped me and for that I thank you all for caring and giving me cyberlove. Good friday is a good day to go if you got to go in my opinion so that also gives me comfort. Happy Easter CSN
I'm out.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss. While it helps to know your dad is out of pain, it is still hard to say goodbye. May the memories of good times together help you get through this tough time.

Tom I am sorry to hear of your father's passing. It sounds like you two had a lot of warm conversations and strong connections. I am glad he was surrounded by loved once and had good care from hospice. I bet it gave your Dad comfort that you have completed your treatment. Losing a Dad is never easy + my thoughts are with you.

Good Night and God Bless

My heart goes out to you and your family. I know it is very hard right now. You all just remember what a fine man he was. He was so grand to hang on until he knew that you would be all right.

I'm very sorry for your loss, I know it's so hard for a son to say goodbye to his father. I'm glad you were with him as he left that earthly body. I'm glad he knew you where doing well before he passed. I told my mother a month ago I was cured, I know a white lie, but she's 89 years old and I didn't want her worrying anymore. She said Thank God, and was so darn happy. Just a month later, she doesn't have any idea what's going on in her world mentally, I'm glad I gave her that bit of happiness. (sh!t, I'm crying my eyes out right now)
Thinking of you,
Winter Marie

I am so very sorry for your loss. It sounds as if you and your dad had a wonderfully strong relationship. Hang on to all those good memories when you get to missing him.

We all move out of this world to something far better without pain or worries, but it is hardest for those we leave behind.

Take care my friend and condolances to you and your family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my Dad to Parkinson's April 26 of 2006 and it is still very hard for me. I miss him so much but as you said, I was so relieved his suffering was over. He visits me now and then in dreams. I actually had a comforting dream the night before I went in to get my port a couple of weeks ago. We were on a roller coaster and it didn't have any seat belts or restraints of any kind. I hate roller coasters. My Dad was sitting next to me; the ride started and at times it went slow and very smoothly and then we went up a huge hill and hovered at the top. As the cart went down this incredibly steep hill I couldn't see the bottom but I had this overwhelming calm about me the entire ride. It landed at the bottom of this steep hill so softly and just went around another corner slowly until it came to rest. He never said a word to me or looked at me through the whole ride but when I woke up, the thought that was in my mind immediatly was that he was going to be on this ride with me the entire way to the end and I would be alright no matter how it turned out. I pray you have a peace about his passing and that he too will visit you in your dreams to give you strength on this journey we're on.

Hugs to you Tom,

I'm sorry for your loss. It is always difficult to say goodbye, your dad sounds like someone who was very supportive of you in your journey with cancer. You sound like you have wonderful memories of a great dad and that will bring you comfort in the days ahead.

Take care - Tina

I am so sorry for your loss. It sounds like you and your dad were so close. I lost my dad over 22 years ago to CRC. The memories more than make up for our loss and I was glad I was included in the "dance". The hurt is severe, and never fully goes away, but it does lessen over time. Gods love to you.
