My Dad Rocks, I am so sorry about your wonderful Dad and please accept my heartfelt Sympathies.
From a book of blessings called “Benedictus” by John O’Donohue – Irish Poet & Philosopher
When you lose someone you love,
Your life becomes strange,
The ground beneath you becomes fragile,
Your thoughts make your eyes unsure;
And some dead echo drags your voice down
Where words have no confidence
Your heart has grown heavy with loss.
And though this loss has wounded others too,
No one knows what has been taken from you
When the silence of absence deepens.
There are days when you wake up happy;
Again inside the fullness of life,
Until the moment breaks
And you are thrown back
Onto the black tide of loss.
Days when you have your heart back,
You are able to function well
Until in the middle of work or encounter,
Suddenly with no warning,
You are ambushed by grief.
More than you, it knows its way
And will find the right time
To pull and pull the rope of grief
Until that coiled hill of tears
Has reduced to its last drop.
Gradually, you will learn acquaintance
With the invisible form of your departed;
And when the work of grief is done,
The wound of loss will heal
And you will have learned
And be able to enter the hearth
In your soul where your loved one
Has awaited your return
All the time.June 21, 2012 at 3:09 am #62233peggypMember
Your dad was lucky to have such a caring daughter; he is at peace now and will suffer no more. I, too, was at my dad’s side when he passed away a year and a half ago. So, I know what you mean when you say you were blessed to be there. My husband continues to fight this awful disease but he is very ill. I pray that your family will find peace and comfort knowing that your dad is in a better place. Sending lots of hugs your way, PeggyPJune 21, 2012 at 1:23 am #62232darlaParticipant

On June 15, 2012, 7 months and 1 day after diagnosis with stage IV CC, my Dad lost his battle with this evil, selfish bastard. I was blessed to be with him when he passed away.
Our family requested that donations in his memory be made here, so that maybe in the future someone else will be spared our heartache.
I love you, Dad. I miss you.
