I lost my wonderful 82 year old father at 1:45am on Saturday, February 7, 2009, to that awful kidney cancer.  He fought it for three years.  He was a brave, strong man and never let it keep him down.  He enjoyed working in his garden and did his own yard work up until two weeks before he died.  No matter how much pain he was in, he would keep working and often refused our many offers to help him with it.  He was the best husband and father anyone could ever hope for.  My heart is breaking for my mother.  She will be so lost without him.  Their 62nd wedding anniversary was this past Wednesday.

I forgot to say that reading your messages on this board has really helped me understand what was going on with my father and helped me feel that we were not alone in this battle.  I will keep praying for all of you.  God Bless You.

I was surfing the Internet and I saw ur message. My father just passed away from lung cancer and he was just like urs. He was taking care of himself up until he passed. Never let anyone help him. Had a very strong heart. 2 moths ago we celebrated his 60th bday. And ppl would say he doesn't look like a person who is dying. Ur beautiful message made me feel better. Thank u
