Tess, I’m so sorry it came on so quickly. That’s great that you wrote your Dad a letter. He knows what a wonderful daughter you are. My heart aches for you. Take care of yourself.
Praying for better tomorrows,

Dear Tess, we are very sorry to hear that your dad passed on. You have been a truly loving and caring daughter and you were lucky to have each other. The idea of a letter is absolutely beautiful. If he has read it yet I bet he is thinking, mmmmm I should have raised her allowance so she could have put a stamp on it!! What a loving thing to do. The horrible journey is now over and you can always be assured that you eased his way. Take care of yourself now and know that our prayers are with you and your family.March 12, 2009 at 1:03 pm #27186jmoneypennyMember
I am so sorry about your dad. He sounds like a wonderful man, and I’m sure he knew how lucky he was to have such a caring and loving daughter. His spirit and optimism will live on through you and your children. May he rest in peace.

I am so sorry to hear this news. It seemed from your posts that his condition was somewhat stable.

I cannot tell you how sorry I am at your news. Truly, heaven has another angel now, and your Dad has joined our loved ones in a place where there is no pain. Did I ever tell you that when I picture Butch in heaven, I usually think about him playing golf on a perfect green somewhere up there, under a perfect blue sky. Did your Dad play golf? If so, I can picture them playing together! I am sure that your Dad knew all the things you were saying in your letter, and he will watch over you and your family now.

I’m so very sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved dad. From all of your postings, we all came to know him in some way and I could always picture his steadfast optimism in the face of all he went through. I know he was surely loved so very much.
My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

My Dad, Jack, passed away yesterday, just four months from his original cc diagnosis. He was at home, in the arms of his family. Dad never gave up hope, never wanted to hear of stages & forbid discussions on prognosis. He insisted I wash & wax his car last week because the chemo would be over soon and spring is around the corner. He was making plans to buy a summer boat.
That quiet time and disconnect of Dad
