Please accept my condolences. I lost my father to cancer when I was 8, he was 38. No matter how young or old, it's the most painful thing to lose a parent, they are irreplaceable. My memories are precious as yours will be, as the bad parts fade and the love remains.
I wish you and your family peace and comfort, I know how hard it is with the holidays approaching.
Please feel free to join Renee and I in the section for the recently bereaved.
i am so sorry to hear about your Dad,I almost died from a bleeding ulcer, it was very traumitizing for my family to watch but for me no. I had reached a point where my body was shutting down because I had lost so much blood. I could hear my husband talking and that calmed me and gave me peace inside even though it didn't look that way to him.It was like I was just floating away.I think the body and mind protects us at the end from the pain so even though it looks so hard it really isn't. You did a very loving and kind thing to be there and talk to him in the end.My prayers are with you and your family
I am very sorry to hear of your Dads passing and I been following your posts and it sounded as though he was having a tough time of it towards the end. Well I will keep your Dad in my prayers and I know he has found peace with God in heaven above. Joe
I'm sorry for your loss. Thank you for taking the time to let us know about his passing. When my Dad died 6 years ago the hospice people told us that the labored breathing was not painful and that it signals to us that the end is near so your Dad may not have had as much pain as you fear.
