Celoi,

I am so very sorry to hear of your great loss. I lost my Father on the 17th, also surrounded by his family. I still after almost 2 weeks, can't beleive it is real. I am certain your Dad wil be terribly missed as will mine. I hope that you can find comfort in knowing that you were with him until the very end, and fought the fight with him and for him.
You and your family are in my thoughts at this most difficult time.

Much Love,
Lisa

Oh no, Celoi - I never wanted to see this post in this forum.  My heart breaks for you.

It is, however, wonderful to hear he was surrounded by such love.  I hope the peace was felt by all.  You and your family are in my prayers.

Celoi,
I am so sorry. I had been reading your blog and I knew things were not going well, but I am still taken aback by the news. I hope it was peaceful and I think it must have been very special to have been surrounded by so much love. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Re: David Cook

Dear Charlene,
   I'm so sorry for your loss. I had hoped your father could continue fighting. He was such an inspiration. I'm sure he was just simply too tired to battle further and he is now in peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in this difficult time. Mary

It is so hard to know what to say other than that we hope the friendship we share with you because of our common bond brings you some comfort at a time when it probably seems as though nothing can bring comfort or peace.  Holding you in our hearts.

Re: David Cook

there are no words that will comfort, but I will share with you the promise that my son and I make to each other every night, because it applies to you and your father.  No matter when or where or what, you will always be in his heart as he will be in yours.  Holding you in my heart--

Re: David Cook

Much love to you and your family Celoi.

Re: David Cook

It's been 2 weeks and 2 days. I am missing my dad so much. Iwished he could have just kept fighting.  At first, his attitude was so positive. I tried to help him remain positive.  He was just tired. Tired of many things. Now his worries are all over.  He is safe and at peace. No more dr's, no more mind games, no more fighting.......

Re: David Cook

It has been 3 weeks and it seem like 3 years. My father would have been 61 years of age yesterday. I just re-lived Dec 30th in my mind yesterday morning. Some say it gets easier with time. Each day, I just think of what would have happened at a certain time, if he was still living. Last Jan 20th, he called me and said he did not think he would see that day.  Yesterday, he did not see.  All I could say throughout the day as I thought of him, "My poor dad". 
I know he is 'resting' with no worry, no problem. I just wished he was still here. He was so special to me. I am missing him more each day.

Re: David Cook

Charlene, I think this was posted a while back:

We Thought of You Today

We thought of you today,
But that is nothing new
We thought of you yesterday
And will tomorrow, too.

We think of you in silence
And make no outward show.
For what it meant to lose you
Only those who love you know.

Remembering you is easy,
We do it everyday.
It's the heartache of losing you
That will never go away.

I don't know who wrote this...loving thoughts are with you.

Re: David Cook

Charlene, it is with great sadness that I read your post.  I am so sorry for the loss of your dear father.  I am an only child myself and although I'll be 41 soon, I always thought my Dad would live forever.  He does so in my heart, but I so wish that he were still with us experiencing life. It was one year on January 13th that he passed into spirit. 

I wish you peace of heart and spirit during this difficult time and hope that you will draw comfort in your kind support of your father during his journey.

Everyday should be "Father's Day".  I love(d) my father so much everyday.  I am missing him more than ever...but I have no regrets.

I love the way you talk about your father. I am sure he felt and knew your love while alive and safe in the knowledge that you would always remember what a wonderful father he was.

The way in which you speak of your father tells me, that not only was he your father but your best friend as well.
Relationships like these are like stars in the sky, so special  and last forever.
Hang on to this, he is with you for always.
