Heaven gained an Angel

On Thanksgiving night our father and soulmate, Sargon Jabbour gained his wings to heaven. He peacefully passed on a day filled with gratitude, a sky filled with beautiful light and surrounded by the people he loved the most in this world, his wife, daughters, sons and grandchildren.

It was a long battle, but he was strong, and we stayed positive, and together we gave it our all.

For those that knew him, he had touched your heart and made an impact in your life that you will never forget. He was the most happy, sweet, respectable man and he will eternally be missed by all of us.

Thank you to our family and friends who have showed us all the support, and to those who have already reached out to comfort us in the difficult time.

Forever your Angel, Forever your daughters Monique and Juliana.

Till we meet again, we love you and miss you.

It was not the treatments that caused all of this to happen it actually was his bladder. He developed a severe bladder cystitis and because of the radiation treatment in the past we just kept having complications with bleeding and kidney function. But I am confident that the Lutitium was working, and only if he was strong enough to continue he would have still been here with us. Thank you Allen for everything❤️

He really would have if he didn’t have bladder issues. I can vouch for the one treatment he had Did show major results with reduction in size of palpable lymph nodes.

Yes That would be so special. He was an amazing individual. My life revolved around finding a way to keep him here with us. But God had a plan, and he had a calling. I’m blessed to know that I left no rock unturned for my father and that we throughly enjoyed our time together. I also am glad that he didn’t experience pain or suffering, he took is last breath in peace. God bless you and thank you Randy.

I could say I'm sorry but that wouldn't come close to expressing how I feel right now. Your father was blessed to have daughters who showed him just how much he was loved. May you both find inner piece in a time of sadness. Bless you both.

Such a profound loss for you and your entire family. My most sincere and heartfelt condolences.

You can be certain your father knew of the constant and undeniable love you had for him. Such a tenacious and determined daughter he raised--you were such an advocate for him. Please know, you've inspired me to be strong as I walk with my father through this fight. I thank you for the chats. Much love and peace to you and your family, Monique.

I’m here with you and I will always stand by anyone’s side. I have a bond with so many on this site. If I could only help even one person from what I have learned in this process I will do it. Keep strong for your father. He needs it even when things are difficult and he doesn’t feel like it. Enjoy your time give him lots of hugs and take lots of videos. I’m blessed to have spent so much time with my father. Give your dad a big hug for me , I already miss those hugs..

I included your Father as well yourself in my prayers every night along with so many of the brothers and their families I have gotten to know from this community. God bless and keep him as well as your family. Please stay involved with this community. If you didn't already know, you were a source of strength for all of us as we followed you and your Fathers journey.

Knowing you were there with him all the way through his Pca and it’s complications should provide some solace to you. Your devotion and support no doubt was of immense comfort to him. All of us Pca sufferers should be so fortunate to have someone like you at our side.

I don't know what to say.. saying or feeling sorry is not enough.. I was always waiting to hear some good news about his condition.. but as you said we do what we can do but it's the God's will after all and he chose him to be close to him in a better place.. This is very painful for us as humans but as a good man , he will have a better life after that long journey of suffering.. God bless his soul and bless you and all his family.

Your post brought tears to my eyes. I have a daughter who like you has been there every step of the way for me. She is my best friend in every sense of the word. Spending hours online looking for the best treatments and joining me on many of my dr visits. And spending oh so much precious time with me. So perhaps i can offer you a little solace in knowing exactly how wonderful it feels to have a daughter love her father so very very much. It feels incredible!!! It gives me strength every day. It makes me fight so hard for her to make her proud. And when my time comes, what I hope and pray for her is what I know your father would want for his daughters. Peace in knowing they did all they could while I was alive to make my time on this earth joyful and I would hope for her to remember and cherish all our good times together. And like your father , I would hope my spirit could somehow take away your pain the way I was able to do so easily with a hug and kiss when you were little. Peace.

Schwah, I read this the moment you posted it.. And just as announcing my fathers passing it just brought complete tears to my eyes. I could not stop crying. I even took a snap shot and read it every time I’m feeling down. He just would never say it to me because he knew that It would

break my heart.

As for “Us” daughters we are lucky to have such wonderful fathers, we are really really lucky to be able to spend time and do everything we possibly can. Just as your daughter I didn’t leave my father alone for anything. We had a bond that was unbelievable. I thank you for your kind words they stay close to my heart as if my father was telling this to me. I know he is smiling from Heaven. Thank you

These words have helped me in times of grief from the loss of love.

“Tis a Fearful Thing

‘Tis a fearful thing

to love what death can touch.

A fearful thing

to love, to hope, to dream, to be –

to be,

And oh, to lose.

A thing for fools, this,

And a holy thing,

a holy thing

to love.

For your life has lived in me,

your laugh once lifted me,

your word was gift to me.

To remember this brings painful joy.

‘Tis a human thing, love,

a holy thing, to love

what death has touched.”

― Judah Halevi

I was very sad when reading about your dear father’s passing. From your prior posts I know how hard he fought, and how much he was blessed in having you help him every step of the way. If there is any comfort at all, it is knowing that he moved peacefully into the next world and is now in Heaven, and his earthly suffering is finished. I will keep him and your family in my prayers. God bless you.

Dear Monique & Juliana, Through tears, I send our prayers and sympathy to both of you and all the family in the death of your father. Thanks to John for leading us to all the memorable tributes (yours especially) in his obituary. My husband and I are also 79 years old. I wish I had met “Sarge” in 1960 when living and studying in Beirut for a semester at the Beirut College for Women. From all the detailed, charming anecdotes, we can see why he was the most wonderful husband, father, uncle, cousin, and friend. I’ve also appreciated your comments, Monique, and learned much from you on this site. Thank you, and may your faith sustain you through these dark days. Love, Jan and Les
