    And no, that is not what he is known as...

    My father passed away this afternoon. Normally I would not bring down the board like this but I let the cat of the bag bitching about the craps crew.

    He fought cancer hard for 4 years but he is now at peace and not suffering anymore.

    For sure I will miss him and I will miss our Bears games together. But I have accepted this would come since he told me he was ready last Wed. So I am okay now, what the next few days or month hold I don't know.

    I'm sorry for your loss. I lost my father 2 years ago and still think about him daily, mostly cause I look so much like him! I hope you're able to allow the best of your Dad to live on through fond memories that will replace the pain you feel now with the passage of a bit of time.

    sorry for your loss Wanker and for papa Wanker's long battle
    lost mine 9 yrs ago, but he died on a friday night tossing back JD and playing PC solitaire, of a sudden massive heart attack
    and I find some solace in him never seeing it coming

    but I still find myself having conversations in my dreams with him about stuff happening today from time to time
    and wake up feeling a bit empty:cry:

    Sorry for your loss. Four years sounds like he was quite a fighter ~ he's in a better place now.
    Take care~

    Condolences on your loss. I hope having folks just reach out to you helps in some small way. Mourning and acceptance take time...then warm memories will bring you joy and comfort.

    Sorry wanker. My dad passed away almost 4 years ago. I'm getting married soon and he won't be there and I think about him everyday.

    If your mom is still alive take care of her. She may start to feel very alone.

    Its hard but it gets easier and you will remember all the good times you had.

    I'm very sorry for your loss. I've been so fortunate with respect to the health of those for whom I care a great deal. I can't even imagine the hurt. Remember the good times and know he's at peace.

    it's the people like your father that put up a valiant fight against a terrible opponent in cancer that pushed me so hard to fight when I was diagnosed and push me to take the best care of my body as possible now that I am a survivor. We've got to find a cure for this terrible disease because it does not discriminate on who it attacks.

    I am sorry for your loss. May he rest in peace and you find comfort in your memories of him.
