Topic: My wonderful daddy lost his battle

The post I was dreading....my wonderful daddy left us this morning at 9:55 am, 3 months after being diagnosed.The whole family was with him as he drew his last breath. He took a turn for the worst Friday evening & never regained consciousness. My sister mom & I sat with him throughout the night for fear that he would be alone when he passed. We do believe he heard all our  words and was very peaceful at the end.Hospice was great, provided us with 2 different meds for the agitation as well as morphine drops & liquid drops to dry up extra secretions. As sad as we are to have this finality we are so grateful he is out of pain & misery. Please pray for my mom, she has been such a rock and I am so proud of her. Thank you all for the support you have shown on this wonderful site. God bless you all who are either suffering from this dreadful cancer or have relatives who are

Re: My wonderful daddy lost his battle

Dear Honeez and family, please accept my sincere condolences on the Passing of your Daddy. I am happy for you all that you were able to be with him and he knew you were there. He has gone to a more Peaceful and kinder place. WHen you are ready, happy Memories will take over and know that  he is always with you and in your hearts. I will pray for your MoM and this one is for her:

If I should be the first to go,
And leave you alone, my Dear,
Let not your heart be lonely,
Nor in your eyes a tear.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
I’ll not be far away,
With petals of love and tenderness,
I’ll pave for you the way.
To join me in our sanctuary,
And ne’er again we’ll part.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
I live within your heart.
Take joy again in living,
As you did in years gone by;
God knows what of he’s doing,
And not be questioned why.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
My life with you on earth
Each moment filled with happiness,
And love so few be worth.
I’ll be waiting for you Sweetheart
Where skys are ever blue,
With eager heart and open arms
Patiently, for you.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
May faith and my love keep.
Your soul filled with contentment
Eternally, I sleep. 

This one is for you girls:

     To my dearest family some things I'd like to say
But first of all to let you know that I arrived okay,
I'm writing this from Heaven. Here I shall dwell with God above
Here, there's no more tears of sadness. Here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy because I'm out of sight
Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me and He said "I welcome you,
It's good to have you back again,
you were missed while you were gone,
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do
And foremost on the list was to watch and care for you
And when you lie in bed at night, the days chores put to flight
God and I are closest to you . . in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth and all those loving years
Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears
But do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
One thing is for certain though my life on earth is o'er
I'm closer to you now than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb
Together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
When you're walking down the street and you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps, only half a step behind
And when it's time for you to go . . from that body to be free
Remember you're not going . . you're just coming here to me.

Re: My wonderful daddy lost his battle

I'm so sorry for your loss. I have to tell you that it gives me comfort that you share your experience. I need to hear about the end from those who have been there and it gives me strength to consider that I will be leaving my children and husband and what it might be like for them. So thank you and may you find peace, you and your mother.
