Time to come clean...

My apologies to you all, for the past couple of months I have been dealing with my fathers liver cancer. My father passed on veterans day - a fitting tribute in retrospect. My father, Bob died out in the the country, its where he wanted to spend his remaining years. Over the years I had emailed humours pictures that I had posted on my blog to him, he always said it was the high point of his day. I inherited my sense of humor from him....it just got a little more twisted...I am struggling right now to get back to where I was, and where I should be....Please bear with me....

  1. My father died of the same cancer. My thoughts and my prayers are with you sir. Take your time, grieve, miss him, cry, get angry, laugh inappropriately, drink too much, reminisce, share your memories, go through his stuff and feel those feelings, and, when you're finally ready, move on. He'll always be there. If you're like me, you'll miss him until the day you meet again.
    Blessings.

  2. I feel your pain brother. My father was much the same for me (stomach cancer) I was his care giver and he died holding my hand two years ago (Dec 12). I does get easier but so far never painless. The days will pass and you will move on, you will also have all of us readers to lean on. We will be here for you.

  3. You Sir, please understand that family always comes first and you owe us no explanation. We are but visitors in your cyber home. I lost my dad a little over two years ago and can tell you this Doc, it gets better. The key for me is to never forget him especially since he made me who I am today. I suspect your dad has done the same for you.

    God bless you and your family,

    Andy

  4. My father has been gone since 1994. He passed at the relatively young age of 61. I still miss him to this day. It will get easier for you as time passes. Just remember all the good times you got to spend with him. My sincere condolences.

  5. Praying for you and yours. Keep up the family tradition of a twisted sense of humor! Always tell the naysayers that there's a difference between cracked and broken.

  6. My Father passed away 2 years ago. Always home to make Step Mom's day easier on that day. Hard life for the guys, but we have to do it for the Family.

  7. Condolences Sir. We lost Dad to cancer on the 4th of July 10 years ago. Some days it still stops me in my tracks. Yes, he will always be there as he is a part of you. Take the time and honor him as you see fit.

  9. When a son loses his father, a part of him is lost, until he finds his father has always been there and will be there forever. It has been twelve years that I grieve for my father lost to brain cancer. I remember holding my fathers hand as a young boy, and as a man, that can never be lost. You will eventually find peace.

  13. Sorry to hear about your loss. It was 20 years ago yesterday my Mom died so I can safely say the feeling of loss never goes completely away. Things do get better though. At least you can always think of your Dad smiling as you post stuff. You'll get there and we'll be here waiting. God bless.

  14. No words can convey my sorrow for you and your father. My mother passed earlier this year. This was hard for me as well.

    God bless.

  15. My Condolences, Doc. It's not pleasant to think about and less pleasant to watch. We'll still be here, take care of yourself and return when you're ready.

  17. Sooner or later Doc, we all have to ride off into the sunset on a new trail. All of our trails eventually intersect at the same point in time and space. That is His Master Plan. Have no fear your father is doing well and is with all his old friends who traveled before him. He will be there for you, helping in ways that words cannot describe, until you meet again. Hang in there, it looks like you have plenty of friends here to help you along. My sincere condolences for your loss and pain. Speaking from experience (both parents) it will get easier.
