Sandy,

Thanks for sharing that beautiful picture with us.   Those smiling faces show so much love.   Some one said that grief is the price of love and that is so true.    Take care.

Hugs,
Darla

I agree, he was a great asset to this board and I'm sure is missed by many, myself included.

Dear Maggie,

I am so sorry for your loss.  You, your mom and  all of your family have my deepest sympathy.  I truly know how you feel and what you are going through.   My husband's situation was much like your dad's.  He died 7 weeks after the first indications of anything being wrong and 10 days after his diagnosis of CC.  He too was originally given 6 months and was to come home with hospice, but died before that could be arranged.  I know this is no consolation, but want you to know you are not alone. 

I too had so many questions but agree with Lainy in that all we really know is that we don't have the answers .   Hopefully in the future that will change.  Seems like it is one step forward and two steps back with this disease.

I take some comfort in the fact that my husband did not suffer too long from this terrible cancer and that at least he is free of this and no longer in pain.   I'm hoping you will be able to do the same. 

Keep your dad with you in your heart and all the memories of the years you had with him. 

Thinking of you and your family and hoping you will all find your way through this sad and trying time.

Hugs,
Darla

Annie,

I was sorry to hear that your mother-in-law has passed away.   Yes, for her to no longer be suffering is a blessing, but I know how hard it is for your father-in-law.  I have been there and it just takes time.   I too am thinking of you and your family at this sad and trying time. 

Hugs,
Darla

Yes, you did it Lainy.    Good for you, but please don't over do it too much.  We want you to heal without any set backs.   Glad to hear your son is taking such good care of you.    You should sleep well tonight after that work out.  smile

Hugs,
Darla

Dear Christian,

I am so sorry to learn that  your mother has passed away.  Also for what your mom and you went through these past few weeks.  I am glad that in the end she passed peacefully with you by her side until the end.    I'm sure as hard as this was for you she knew and appreciated the love and support you gave her and your respect for her wishes. 

You and your family have my deepest sympathy.  Yes, you are not alone.  We are all here for you and also appreciate your offer of help and support to others. 

Try to remember the good times and keep her with you forever in your heart and those memories.  Take some comfort in knowing that she is no longer suffering and is at peace.

Hugs,
Darla

Dear Sandy,

I am so sorry to hear that  Dave has passed away.  I know right now there is not much to say to comfort you or take away the pain.  We all wanted and thought we would have more, but cherish those years that you did have.   Those memories will get you through this.    You, Lauren and all the rest of your family and friends have my deepest sympathy on you loss. 

Take some comfort in knowing that Dave is no longer suffering or in pain.  Keep him with you forever in your heart and fond memories. 

Love & Hugs,
Darla

Kris,

You are definitely getting signs from Mark that he is still near by.  It seems that electrical things are the first to be noticed.  Since you are open to him visiting, you will see other signs.    He is letting you know he is still watching over you and as Lainy said, to assure you that he is OK and you will be too.

Hugs,
Darla

Lainy,

Glad things are going well and all looks good.  Out walking already, too.   I agree,  your great attitude does make a big difference.   Your sense of humor helps, too.  smile

Take care.

I totally agree with all the others.    Your thoughts and input are invaluable.  I'm only hoping that you get as much as you give from the site.  We are all here to help and support each other and you do a good job of that even while dealing with your own issues and hope you will be around for a long time to continue to do so.

Hugs,

Thanks for this.  Good to know she is doing well and will be back here with us soon.  smile

Thanks again to both you and Robin for the update.  Glad she is resting today.  Sounds like she over did it a little yesterday so she needs to rest up.  I'm sure it won't be long before she is back to her old self.

Great news Matt.  We definite need more of these positive posts on here.   Wishing you lots of good luck next week with the surgery.  We will be waiting to hear the outcome which I'm sure will also be more good news.

Good one.  No pun intended, right?  smile

Thanks for this Marion.  Sounds like everything is on track and that even going through all of this Lainy has not lost her sense of humor. Thank Robin for being so kind to keep us in the loop.

Kris,

I too understand the not liking it but accepting what ever it is and being at peace with it.  We don't have to like it, but we have no choice but to accept that it is what it is.   Hoping for better news soon.

Hugs,
Darla
