Wow! Thank-you ALL for your love, condolences and sharing your personal stories of your loss of loved ones.

You ALL have helped ease the "pain" and loss of my Father's eventual passing.

There's not a day, I don't hear my dad in my head, philosophizing about something, or another. Pleasant musings, to be sure. Been 7 years already. Whew.

Yesterday was my dad's 81st birthday. Unfortunately, he only saw 75 of them. Thoughts and prayers to you, BT.

I had to go down to say my goodbyes to my Father. He has Prostrate cancer which went to his bones and 2 weeks ago to his Brain. I told him he could close his eyes and rest. That we will be ok and be there for each other. Very difficult to see a man with the pride he had in that condition. Hospice said could be hours or a day or two. Many of you have gone through this, some recently with a loved one. It's not easy for anyone of us, but with the support we all give each other in "bad" times, it help tremendously.

A special thank-you and shout out to Mike (Crimsonlake) for taking the time to figure out
a song for me, "Short trip home".We were going to play it on Christmas Day for my Dad along with Edelwiess and a few others of his faivorite Holiday songs, but, due to his Illness , never got the chance. I found out today from my sister that we will be playing it at my Father's Memorial service in March. Mike's generosity and selflesness is what makes this group special.
Thank-you for allowing me to express my feelings
and loss.

Bob
We are all freinds here and personal stuff happens. nothing to be sorry about.

Bob, deepest sympathies from my family to yours.

Just today we were talking about my Father in Law, who passed three years ago from complications of Alzheimers. He was a brilliant man with many talents and a strong body that wouldn't quit even when it would have been a blessing. To watch such a man decline mentally and then finally physically was difficult. We had him here with us for the last year and it was a tough but invaluable time for all of us.

At his memorial service his family and friends told stories from throughout his life. I'm sure that he would have wanted us to celebrate as we did, to remember the good things about his life and to not dwell on the difficult parts of his final illness.

I hope you are able to get past these difficult times quickly and can start remembering the good times.
