sorry I have been missing, please stop smoking

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

I have been missing because My 78yo father passed away. He will be greatly missed. He passed away in the comfort of his home, with family members and pets surrounding him. Viewing and services went very well, not always the best way to reunite with family members. He gave up smoking over 20 years ago unfortunately the 45 years of smoking before that had already caused severe damage that lead to his passing. Please if you are still smoking try to find a way to quit.

    Sorry about your loss. emoticon

    I quit about ten years ago. My kids were thrilled. They had badgered me for years before I finally one night said that's all. Haven't even wanted one since then.

    I am so sorry for your loss. May you cherish the happy memories.
    Thank you for your message about smoking. Many years ago it was not really confirmed that smoking is a terrible health risk. Now that it is a fact, I cannot understand why anyone would start this habit..... but they do.

    I agree. I lost my dad at 49 due to smoking. I am so sorry for your loss. I quit smoking 10 years ago. one of the best things I ever did for my body and mind and family. My dad also died at home with his wife and seven kids all around him. It was 4 days before christmas . It is very sad and I do not want my children and grandchildren to watch me suffer like my dad did. Smoking not only destroys your self but all the people who love you.
