    I am so sorry for the loss of these two key men in your life, Glasspack. We will light a candle, and say a prayer for them.

    So sorry, my friend. I will pray for healthy grieving, peace and hope for you and yours. My dear friend and pastor Tim also died this week of renal cell carcinoma. He was 55 and has six kids, two married and independent, two in college, and two in high school. Plus a widow after 30 years of marriage.

    Cancer sucks!!!!!!!

    So very sorry for everyone affected by this terrible disease. Lost my brother in law a few months ago, and a friend at work.
    I am a believer and I am praying now for all the families to have love in their hearts and peace in their minds.

    My heart bleeds for you Glasspack. My wife has a blood born lymphoma, and the Chemo is making her extremely ill and had to stop. They will try radiation next, but they want to try a new alternative treatment. Unfortunately insurance says no.
    Unless we get some help fast, we will be on the streets at the end of the month.
    I can tell you from experience, you never get over loosing your Dad, you just miss him more and more over time.
    Physical life is short, and cancer is something that needs to be stopped! Because the hurt never does.

    In my experience, nothing helps with grief better than a good project.

    +1. Everyone deals with grief differently. Personally I find distractions really help me work through it. Find out what works for you, regardless of what other people think you should do.
