LilyAnneLouis Posted May 31, 2017 Share Posted May 31, 2017 Good morning everyone, I have only written a couple times in this forum, but I have to express how deeply grateful I am for this resource. My dad passed away last Wednesday and I don't want this to worry anyone or bring anyone else's positive thinking down, but I just had to express that gratitude. Fighting cancer is so difficult. It's not a battle anyone has chosen and fight/battle seems like an inconsiderate way to describe it, because so much of the outcome is out of our control and those who lose the battle are not weak and did not choose to go. My dad was originally given 5 months to live and he lived 15. He was determined to hold on. As my sister and I process this grief and nurture the emptiness we are feeling, I can't help but feel like an entire village of people helped me through and this resource is part of that. I don't know what life holds for me, but I am constantly reminded how kind and beautiful human beings can be. Thank you all for everything. My life has fundamentally changed from the passing of my dad, but I will look at him with fond memories and celebrate him by being kind, determined and empathetic to every soul I meet. So much love to you all. Holding all of you in the light. Lily Julie in SoCal, BridgetO, LexieCat and 2 others 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
