I just found out from my mom this morning that my dad is not expected to live much longer and so I went over there and spent some time with him. I was told by my mom not to be emotional so I just kept telling myself that he was going to Heaven when he dies and that kept me from crying. My dad has dealt with having an aneurysm and two strokes he had to overcome. He’s been nearly paralyzed on his right side too. He’s a real trooper for having dealt with it all this time. He’s an old cowboy and tough as a boot. I will always miss him and I don’t know what mom is going to do with the ranch after Don dies. I hope she doesn’t move away.
God bless, @jukebox ️
thank you @Hedgehog at least someone cares.
im going through something similar. my dad has cancer and it is spreading. i dont know how much longer he has. i wish you the best mate
I’m very sorry to hear that @jukebox and @kropotkin.
Sorry to hear that! Glad you got some notice and some quality time in yourself when you got the news.
I’m sorry about your step-dad, jukebox. As you know, I went through the same thing with my mom. I hope you can lean on your family for this difficult time I know you’re an emotional guy and this is hitting you hard. Stay strong.
I am so sorry. I wish the best for you and your family.
I am so sorry @jukebox and @kropotkin
I’m sorry. Grief is not at all fun to deal with. I wish I could say it gets better. It doesn’t, really, but you eventually get used to walking around with a hole in your heart. It’s okay to get emotional. That is normal and healthy, and lets him know how much you care.
I’m sorry for you’re impending loss.
I had an uncle die somewhat recently of lung cancer. Death is hard I know, I haven’t been close to those I’ve known who
ve died but can imagine as saying goodbye as been hard enough to those who were simply moving on in life.
Sending you my positive vibes and thoughts, jukebox. I know this is hard for everyone.
I’m sorry @jukebox and @kropotkin, it’s not easy at all losing a parent like that. Wish you both a lot of strenght
A (((hug))) and a prayer for you @jukebox, and for your step dad and mom too.
Time doesn’t heal all wounds when you lose your parents. I still miss my pops, can’t believe it’s been almost 3 years since he’s been gone.
thank you so much to everyone. I didn’t expect to hear from so many people on here. means a lot. I am grateful for all of you.
That’s the way we always looked at death in my family. He won’t be suffering any more. God bless, jukebox.
((hug)) i’m so sorry @jukebox.
