my heart goes out to you. My father passed away in april of 07 after dealing with hep C for nearly 30 years. He had many many ups and downs but always came through, so when it happened it was such a shock.....
I will be thinking of you in the days that follow and send some prayers out to you and your family.... hugs :-)
Really appreciate all the sincere words and comfort. Just now laying down for a nap..much needed away only 4 hours of sleep last night....now the relief of this passing is setting in grief has not started yet except when I thought to take his pillow to the funeral home to he could have his final rest on his home pillow. This is one of the reasons he wanted to get back home.
Doing much better overall now that the initial rush of phone calls is over. Thank you all.

So sorry to hear about the loss of a loved one for the Sparkers that posted on here. Unexpected, I lost a best friend of 42 years in Oct. Still seems surreal. So many of us Sparkers are grieving a lost of a loved one, or taking care of family members. Need to remember to take care of ourselves (still have not learned that lesson yet) Sending out hugs to you all.

I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your father. Even if someone we love has been ill for a long time, it's still a shock when they pass. Take care of yourself as best you can.
My condolences to you and your family.

Sincere condolences on your Dad's passing. Now is not the time to stress about eating & exercising, and you will likely have some brain fog for a while...even if you think you're doing well, it pops up. So no big decisions now if you can help it. Maybe spending time w/ a good friend, relaying some Dad times...taking a walk in a scenic place (maybe one that Dad liked?) or doing something Dad liked to do would help you move through this. Going through old photos can be good, especially w/ a friend or someone who also knew him. Try to get some rest...even if you just lay down in a comfy bed or recliner - even if you can't immediately go to sleep - just stopping and letting your body catch up is a good thing. Again, I'm so sorry for your loss. Hang in there and I wish you rest and peace.
So very sorry. Blessings to both of you who have recently lost your Dads. Cannot imagine how tough this must be. Sending you both hugs!!

I am sorry for your loss and I will carry you in my heart and soul. Realizing that I do not have the words, I hope that you will take care of yourself and that those in your family who also need you will continue to improve. Keep yourself surrounded by those you know and those here that you don't.

I am very sorry to hear of your loss, and the poor health of other family members. I know from experience how hard this is.
My own husband died in December. The day before his funeral I had to take my 93yr old Stepfather to the hospital re skin cancer, the day of the funeral my sister had to have some major surgery, and the day after my husband's funeral I had to take S/Father and mother to the Dr. On the one hand we are in a very fragile situation ourselves, but having to maintain strength for others. It is so very hard.
You make sure that you take good care of yourself, too! My body is finally getting warmth back - and we are in the middle of summer.
He had been suffering since dec 16,so on one hand so glad that is over..but was starting to believe nothing could touch him...he lived 22 years past a doctor telling him he had 6 months. A guess I'm in numb shock....also took my mother in law into the hospital ER today...something wrong with her heart. My mom is in rehab for a broken hip and good friends father died just two minutes before dad...so much more this last week. So tired and need to be up at 6 am but my whole body is cold and sore...brain won't turn off.
