    Tess…..many others have expressed similar feelings of wanting to go on by leaving behind this disease. I am wishing for your heart to heal one day at a time and for joy to return to your life.
    Hugs,

    Thank you so much for the kind words & thoughts Ashlea, ljg, Darla, Barbara and Pam. I feel like this site is a bunch of old friends, that I have to periodically check in on, as your encouragment on this journey has been priceless. In a strange way, I also feel very distanced from cc right now…. as if it’s a class that I”ve been attending daily & I”m burned out on it, I’m sick of studying, researching, reading, learning, breathing, living this stuff everyday. And I was only a caretaker! I never felt that before this week, because every little concern was worth burning the midnight oil over, if it could bring new answers. With Dad’s death, I feel like the chapter on cc is closing & class is over. I don’t have anymore questions about cc…. & the greatest challenge/fear of this whole process, Dad’s death, has come to fruition. Perhaps this is a ‘normal’ response to the cancer and grief.

    Best,
    Tess

    Tess,

    I know God will hold you close in his hands today. You will be strong today during the funeral and yes you will know exactly where the place is that you will connect with your Daddy. (You can always come and walk on the beach with me!)

    You will be in my thoughts and prayers today.

    In Love and with lots of hugs,
    Pam

    Dear Pam, Mary, Barbara, Valerie & Jeff, and Janet, thank’s so much for your kind words. Barbara, your words definitely helped us through Dad’s final days and Jeff was always there to answer the little-big important questions along the way, many extra hugs to you all for that. Dad’s funeral is just a couple of hours away, I feel so sick right now & angry. THis final celebration makes things so ‘official’ & even Dad hated this stuff. When it’s all over I really need to find a place to connect again with Dad, that can’t be done in the presence of hundreds of strangers.

    Love,
    Tess

    Tess,
    You are an amazing person, and you have been an incredible support system to me on this journey. I can only imagine what a wonderful father Jack was, because he has raised such a kind, thoughtful, considerate daughter. Your father was absolutely taken too soon, the the only solace is that he was with his loved ones when he passed over, and he will never suffer another moment of pain with this horrible disease. I hope I can handle what comes my way with this disease with the same elegance and grace you have displayed.
    Your little boy will always feel Grampas presence, because he lives on in you.
    Take Care and God Bless

    Dear Tess,
    I’m very sorry to hear that your Dad lost his battle. He is at peace now and you will have a guardian angel watching over you. He truly appreciated all that you did for him even though he couldn’t say it. You are a very special daughter and I know you tried very hard to do what was best for him. Take care of yourself and know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. Hugs to you and your family. Mary

    Tess,
    We’re so sorry to hear about your father. We also thought he had a long journey yet in his valiant struggle. You will certainly find comfort in knowing you were there for him 100% in all ways, and that he knows you’re a strong person who will go on in his absence.

    We’re praying for you, Gary and Elaine
