Topic: So God Made a Farmer...

My father has always been larger than life.  In November 2012 we found out he had Cholangiocarcinoma, he fought it and gave it every thing he had...this awful disease won.

He went through multiple rounds of chemo and it seemed to be keeping it at bay.

Then, he had two chemo embolizations done on his liver, one in May 2013 and one in June 2013.  He was never the same after, his health kept declining and the doctors were puzzled.

In March of 2013, he casually said, "I won't make it to August!"

My big bear of a father passed away July 30, 2013 at the age of 60!

It has always amazed me the amount of people he knew!  Now we know that he someone managed to touch each and everyone of their hearts...there were over 700 people at his wake/funeral.  Really kind of boggles the mind.

Harvest time will never be the same!!!

I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your father.  It sounds like he was a kind, caring man to have touched so many lives. 

Please be gentle with yourself as mourning takes time and everyone mourns differently.  I know it's difficult now but in time all the loving memories you have of your father will bring a smile to your face.  Keep him alive in your heart.

Take care.

Dear Tammy, I am so very sorry to hear of your Father's Passing. The Gentle Giant in your eyes and that is a good thing. Please accept my heartfelt condolences and know that your Father will always be around you!

Those we love must someday pass beyond our present sight…
They leave us and the world we know without their radiant light.
But we know that like a candle their lovely light will shine
To brighten up another place more perfect…more divine.
And in the realm of Heaven where they shine so warm and bright,
Our loved ones live forevermore in God’s eternal light.

Dearest Tammy:

I am so sorry for your loss.  I just lost my beloved grandmother two weeks ago.  I wish I had words, but no words could comfort this tremendous pain. He left too soon.  God only takes the best.  I hope that your many memories will provide some sort of comfort to you during this painful and difficult time.

God bless you and your family.


In loving memory of my beloved and cherished grandmother who fought until the very end. Loving you forever abuelita...
