My Daddy finished his journey on 4th July

After a lot of choices that life gave my father since the May of 2017, he finished his journey on 4th July 2019. With me, my mom, my siblings, being around him more than ever in this time span- he made us love him and back much more than ever. With the little energy that he had a day before his death- im glad he spoke his heart out. He has been a wonderful father and i can not imagine my life without him. Though i am sure, the world he is in now is perfect, bright and very comforting.

To his journey ahead- Om Shanti! πŸ™

Hi there,

I lost my dad a year ago July 4th to this horrible disease. It was really a ride and me, my mom and brother were with him during his transition.

You and your entire family are in my prayers. I have been in the exact spot you are in right now. Find perfect peace in knowing you served him until the end. It's what I cling to, to get thru.

I think by now your DAD has adjusted to his wings and learned how to play the harp. God Bless him may God keep his memory alive forever.

Awww thank you John. I needed that and I sure hope so. Funny, my dads name is John. I still refer to him in the present.

May the Holy One who has no boundaries and sees the beginning and the end, provide Mercy and Grace upon those loved ones who have just lost their Dad, leaving siblings and a wife. God is with you! Even in one's old age, He will be with you. God proclaims, "That He will sustain you always, and reminds us, He Created Us and will carry Us, and will Sustain and Save Us".

There is a Special Shalom[Peace], that transcends, our understanding. May the Holy One, Blessed be He, spread this Shalom, upon those who have just lost their loved one. For we know Dad is not lost!

Shalom,

Nalakrats

I am a father with this terrible disease who has a daughter who like you, loves me and is with me often. I am certain your father felt like I, what a lucky man he was to have helped create a child to continue his legacy and who loved and cherished him. And like I , his greatest wish would be for you to feel thankful that you could be with him and for you to live your life now as best you can. He will be there for you in spirit I am sure. God bless you and your family .

One of life's greatest gifts, loved ones near when that time comes. Although it hurts to be there while death occurs, your family, his family, gave life meaning and value to him at his time and now, his memory for all of you to continue.

The final destination is the one that counts. I have a daughter like you and a loving son. Jesus is my Lord and Savior and I know that everything will OK with us(your father and many of us). I am not going to miss the many ugly things in this life. May God rest him in peace!

I’m truly saddened to hear about your father’s passing. His journey here on earth is completed. His eternal Heavenly journey is just beginning. It was wonderful he was able to express his love for you and your family, and feel your love in return. Today (Sunday) I will keep him, and your family in my prayer requests at church. May God bless you all and bring you comfort.

I am so sorry for your loss. We are all in this group to provide support for each other just as much as to gain information to try to help our own loved one dealing with this terrible cancer. I hope this group did provide you with friendship and support as well as information. You will always have your Daddy in your heart and in your memories.

Sorry for your loss, he sounds like a great father. Looking back on family members I've lost, it always seems that cancer takes the best of us away. Keep hold those fond memories and special moments, for he still lives within you. This is something I've told both my boys (10 and 9 years), I am part of them and will always be with them.

2 years is quite quick from diagnosis, was he very advanced or just didn't respond well to treatments?

Thanks Zetabow. I am sure your boys adore you for your love and learnings they seek from you.

Yes he was diagnosed advanced metastatic with lymph nodes and bony involvements. Also he didnt respond well to any treatments starting from Hormones, chemo, Xtandi, Lutetium... nothing. The disease came back with an aggression each time.

May all the memories help. It’s so hard when a parent dies and not all the words in the world

Will stop the painπŸ˜ͺ For me it was remembering the silly things my dad did and some of things that he said that made me smile and made each day a little easier sometimes when I was having a bad day I would see something out of the ordinary that was just about my dad I keep thinking that’s him saying kiddo I’m OK Look for those signs because your dad wants to make sure you and your family OK

I also lost my husband June 20th to this dreaded disease! It was totally awful he was diagnosed 2 years almost to the day! The last 6 weeks where the worst days of my life seeing him suffer soooo much. I feel your pain and am sorry for your loss. The only thing now is to be thankful they are no longer in agonizing pain!

Reply

Sorry to know about your loss. It isnt easy to let loved ones go niether to see them in pain.

Good for them, if ot comes to it but the void left ... is always going to pain.

I wish you strength and perseverance in this difficult time

Reply

Dear Kobina and family,

Your poor husband went through a lot of pain in the last two years. His pain is finally gone but his spirit and love for you and your family lives on. May he enjoy eternity knowing that you and your family loved him and stood with him during his fight against his cancer. I went back and re-read your previous post about you crying a river during his last few days.

You will continue to cry but those tears will slowly fade away but your memory will always be with him. During the passing years I still think of my family members who are gone but not as often as I used to. Time heals all wound but always leaves a scar. God Bless you all.

I write to you while I sit at my dad’s bedside in the hospital at New Delhi , wondering if we are soon reaching the end of the road. Diagnosed with advanced PCa, Gleason 8 in June 2017, we are 2 years down the road of treatment. Firmagon gave a great one year, thereafter Xtandi, Honvan and Zytiga have all but failed. Not a candidate for chemotherapy due to advanced age. With blood transfusions needed every month to maintain his haemoglobin and keep him alive, we are thankful to have him.

The suffering is too great, I hope we will have the courage to let him go when it’s time. Meanwhile I also hope we go home for a few more happy days together.

God bless your family. Peace to all.
