Joyce lost her dad this morning. He was 85. He had cancer and went peacefully in his sleep at hospice. :(

I hate this so much. Hearing more people going since Stuart. Emily

Letting go is never easy

Emily I too know how it hurts to lose those you love. I went to 6 funerals last year, each a person I cared for and miss deeply. The last was no better than the first, you never get used to it. It hurts every time, if you love you will be hurt, if you don't you won't. I am looking for a poem I read at my wife's mum's funeral when I find it I will try to send it to PJ and ask him to pass it on as it will help Joyce in her time of need.
Please pass on my condolences and I will also pray for her and all those who lose those they love.

Thank you Missy, YB, Sussexman and Mary. It's been a stressing and painful time for me and my family. I thank God it was fast.

So Sorry Joyce,

BUT
As you said, at least it was fast.

Much better than slowly dwindling away, getting worse every day and nothing that can be done for it.

HOWEVER, Nothing can bring your Dad back, or any of our loved ones and friends.
Grieve and then Celebrate all the good things that he did. Without Him, WE wouldn't have met YOU for instance Joyce.

Regards and Sympathies Joyce
