Just had the almost inevitable now news through this morning, albeit a lot quicker than we were expecting. My Dad passed away around 2.30am. It's devastating to hear, and I'm still a bit stunned at the moment. I suppose if there's one saving grace it's that in the end he seemed to go very quickly with little pain, rather than there being any longterm suffering (they'd only started him on morphine for pain relief yesterday). Assuming he's not been lying about it for months mind!

Gonna have to head back up home today for a few days. Apparently my sister hasn't actually been told yet, as she went into labour around 6.

I was thinking of you just now - really sorry to get this news. Safe travels, and, as Logan said, take care of yourself.

Sorry to hear this. Nothing really prepares you for it. Take the time you need (which will probably be more than you think), and take care of yourself.

*Hugs* I'm really sorry. Inevitable maybe, but no less of a jolt. I'll be keeping you and your family in my thoughts, and please don't hesitate to email me if you need to at any time.

Desperately sad news indeed, but, as you note, at least the end was peaceful. All so quick, but I suppose cancers can be like that - I'm reminded of Iain Banks, gone within a couple weeks of his diagnosis.

I clearly remember getting that call myself. Probably not something I'll ever forget, as we'd been somewhat hopeful that he'd managed to overcome the worst, and we might be able to look forward to greeting him back in his own home again.

My condolences *hugs* I know that even though you know it's coming it doesn't make it any easier. At least you can take comfort that it was quick. Will be thinking of you.

My condolences to you and your family.

I can't imagine what it feels like losing and gaining a family member in such a short timespan.
