  1. Grace I dont know what to say except that i hope on hope that your husband bounces back from this and that you and your girls are ok. My thoughts are with you
  2. Wendy, you are so right. My view is that yes, we all know that smoking can cause this disease and yes, we all know that we need to give up - blah, blah, blah. But I think that it's a disgrace that people think "serves them right" when it comes tothis disease. Is that why there is bugger all research money going into it even though it is the biggest cancer killer??? What next - because I eat alot of red meat, does that mean that if I get colon cancer that I deserved it! We all do things that are bad for us, but dont we all deserve the right to get treatment for it and research into how to best cure this disease? How dare these people feel that they have the right to judge - I'm very sure that if someone they loved had this disease, they wouldnt be casting their downward looks at them anymore - although under no circumstances would I want anyone to have to live with the horrid disease. Keep strong Wendy and if you want to, then sock one on them - it may make you feel better
  3. Hi Sonia These are such hard and horrible times that you are going thru and I wish there were something I could say or do that will help lighten the load. I found that making the most of the times I had left with Dad were as good as they could be and tried not to focus on what was actually happenning - easier said than done I know My thoughts and prayers are with you
  4. Hi Ann These guys are great for a very welcome boost when times are hard. I am so sorry to hear about Mums news and my thoughts are with you and your family.
  5. That is unbeleivable. There are times when a straight answer is what is needed, but there are ways of delivering the message. I am so sorry that you are going thru all of this and I hope that you can pick yourself up and keep the fight going. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your husband.
  6. This may (or may not) help next time you play Trivial Pusuit.... Where does the phrase "daylight robbery" come from?
  7. If a 7-Eleven is open 24hrs a day, 365 days a year.............. Why do they have locks on the doors????

    Merry Xmas to you and well summed up!
  9. Hi I am in the UK and was looking for someone who might be interested in just keeping touch via e-mails for support - either giving or recieving. Please drop me a line if you are interested. Thanks Chris
  10. Hi I recieved a call from my Mum yesterday (Thurs 21st Dec) to say that Dad's ashes are going to be inturned (I'm not sure if that is the right phrase) on Saturday the 23rd @ 11am (GMT+10.30hrs). I have kinda put most of it all out of my mind over the last 2 months or so and this came as quite a surprise. It's only in the last couple of days that I have visited this site, I guess if I don't, it isn't real. I have recieved letters from Dad's solicitors in regards to some money he left, found some photos, collected the condolence cards and put them all into a box and keep it on top of the wardrobe. I don't look in it - I just add to it. I still really haven't spoken to my wife about how I am feeling, I dont really know the answer to that myself to be honest. I have asked mum to put 3 roses on dad's plot - one from me, one from my wife Lucy and one from my daughter Rosie. How will Christmas day be - I don't know. I feel alot of emotion very close to the surface at the moment - I guess time will tell. I have set a reminder on my alarm to wake me up at the equivilant time in the UK, so that even though I wont be there in body, my thoughts will be. Thanks for listening (again) Chris
  11. All I can is say - That is Beautiful!
  12. Sarah My thoughts and prayers are with you. You sound like a fabulous daughter and I am sure that the care and love you are giving to your mom right now are the most important things to her. Be strong and vent as much as you need. Chris
  13. Hi Sarah You are so right about the guys on here - they are such a fantastic support. I have never really contributed alot to the forum in regards to writing etc, but their support is so unconditional. Chris
  14. Hi If it helps, even though he didnt always like what he heard, my Dad wanted to know it all - he wanted to at least be in control of that. My thoughts are with you Chris
