Building things, fixing stuff, wrenching on cars . . . . . and some other stuff too.
Please accept my condolences. You never quit missing them, but the pain gradually diminishes.
Thank you Gorges. Wish I could some how have spared him the suffering. It was so brutally hard to witness. If you would, please, put a word in with the man upstairs, he could use the help.
i am so sorry. it looks like he had a good life.
Hi Jaz, Thanks a lot, good to hear from you again. Looks like your comment got caught in the spam folder again and I never received notification you posted.
CONDOLENCES TO YOUR FAMILY.GOD IS GOOD AND THIS EARTH IS EPHEMERAL.I SEE WHERE YOU GOT YOUR BUILDING TALENTS.THINK OF THE JOY YOUR DAD IS EXPERIENCING NOW!
Thank you Deb. It was an unusually difficult end. I am used to fixings things. This one had no fixing and that is hard to accept.
My condolences to you and yor family.
Thank you Yael. It is nice to hear from you again.
I am so sorry. You will be in my prayers.
Thank you Dee.
My condolences. It doesn't matter how long you've had him, you always want to have him longer. Take care.
Thanks, it sure was not an easy road in many ways. But I so wish I could have kept him from the pain .
The pain of missing them never ends, it rears up at most unexpected times, and hurts a lot. I know, lost my mother to cancer 9 months ago. Stay strong and remember the good times. Your father is in a much better place, we here on earth need to survive. Best wishes from India.
Thank you for your kind words Khushi.
Seems like he had a good , long life and had a good family. Overall, I'd say he grabbed the brass ring. It's hard on the remaining family, I know. But you should all feel pretty good about the support you gave him. I expect he appreciated it.
I think he felt proud of his success. And though he said he was OK with going I never quite believed it. Like I said the end was gut-wrenching, both for him and us. We did what we could but it was not good enough. I am used to fixing things, it is what I do. This one I could not fix.
My condolences. I never know what to say in these situations, remember the good times and the times you laughed together. Write down some small memories in a book somewhere, even just silly things, one day, years from now you'll be glad you did. Sounded like he went surrounded by people that love him.
Thanks Kev. It was a tough ride, especially the final four days. We were behind the curve on the pain meds and never could quite catch up. Mom, my sister and I were there with him when he passed. Gut-wrenching experience. And it will be a tough road ahead as well. Lots of stuff on my plate right now. I suppose that's OK as it will keep me from dwelling on it all too much right now.
So sorry for your loss. Lost my father this year as well. Always hard to deal with loss. Life can be rough but we hang in as best we can
Hey Dan, good to hear from you again. It has been a while. I take it you are back home for a spell. Hope all is well with you and yours and we see a few hunting posts on your blog. Your new pup looks handsome. We are getting on OK here. It has been a bumpy road for the last few couple years with dad's cancer and his passing but we'll get through it one way or another. Thanks for your thoughts.
