Dear Carol,

You and your family have my deepest sympathy for the loss of your dad.  Your love for him shines through in your posts.   No words can take away the pain, but I hope you can find some comfort in knowing that he is no longer suffering or in pain.   He will always be with you in your heart and fond memories.

Hugs,
Darla

Hi Anne,

I am so very sorry to hear this.  I'm sure Lainy will be here shortly as she has a list of what to expect and look for and will gladly send it on to you. 

Do you have some sort of hospice care that can come in to help?  They too can give you much information and support.  At this point, keeping him comfortable and pain free is the most important.

Thinking of you both and sending love and prayers.

Hugs,
Darla

Dear Alex,

I am  sorry to hear that your father has passed away.   You and your family have my deepest sympathy.  Nothing can easy your pain and sadness right now, but hopefully knowing you have a lot of people that understand what you are going through and who truly care will give you some comfort. 

Know that your dad will always be with you in your heart and  memories of the good times.

Take care.

Chuck's daughter.  Thanks so much for letting us know what's going on and thanks also to your dad for thinking of us even now  as all this is happening.  He has been an inspiration to many and  such a kind and caring person.  Helping others while going through so much himself.   

Know that we are all thinking of him and hoping for the best for him on this journey that none of us wanted to travel.   

Give him my love and tell him he has a lot of people here thinking of him and who truly care.
You, Chuck and all of his family and friends are in my thoughts and prayers. 

Hugs,
Darla

Carol,

I know how hard this is for all of you.    You will have the strength to get through this and know that you have all of us to help and support you, too.   You are doing all you can do right now by just being there for them.   I agree that keeping your dad as pain free as possible is most important right now.   And yes, try to take care of yourself, too.

Thinking of you.

Hugs,
Darla

Gavin,

Thanks for sharing this wonderful event.  Everyone looks great and happy.  Looks like it was a lovely day for all.    Kirstin is a beautiful bride.

Sorry mum wasn't  feeling good enough to attend.  I'm sure she would have loved to have been there.  Your Aunt Fiona looks a lot like her. 

I'm sure you did yourself proud walking  Kirsten down the aisle and also on the speech. 

Arran  has  grown into a fine young man.   Going to be  as tall as you soon Gav.  smile  He looks so cute in his kilt.  By the way, where is your kilt????????  wink 

Hope mum  feels better soon.

Hugs,
Darla

Glad to see they are finally putting a name on "our" cancer.  smile  There are still many in the medical field that have never heard of it.

Lainy, that sounds very tempting, especially after this last winter. 

Gavin, I like your idea, too.  If we don't like it, just trade it.  smile

Crazy weather here, too.  Hot & muggy one day and cold the next.  After all, it is July, mid summer and it feels more like fall today. 

Actually, I don't mind dry heat.  Much better than cold & snow.  It's the humidity that gets to me.
