    I know how hard it is to lose someone close to you. I lost my mum 18 years ago. She was having a bypass operation and unfortunately never woke up from this surgery...she died on the operating table.

    It was extremely hard and I also remember going through letter she had written...even my old attendance book from school where she had signed...in fear I would forget her handwriting etc.

    Remember...this lovely forum is here for you in this very difficult time...use us as a shoulder to cry on...use us to vent...it helps
    Thank you Cleas, that must have been so hard for you to deal with. I'm reading through emails that he's sent me over the years and listening to old voicemails - I've saved them all. I'm scared of forgetting his voice and the way he used to talk. I can relate to reading through old letters etc, I only wish I had handwritten letters from him still.

    Please remember that there was nothing you or anyone else could have done to prolong his life any more than it already had been. Be very grateful that you had him for the time you did and that he is no longer in pain and waiting for the end.

    Reminisce about the good times and those are the precious memories you will forever keep in your heart. Try to remember him as he used to be....happy and healthy.

    As Dorte said....we are here for you if you need us

    My thoughts are with you during this terrible time.
    I can't thank either you or Cleas or everyone else enough for your words. It's strange actually, I'm not reacting as badly as I thought I would to this news. I'm not having the usual reaction of why him or anything like that. And I feel guilty for not feeling that way. I'm sorry for rambling, I'm just letting all of the thoughts running through my head out all at once and they seem to be confusing and upsetting me more.

    MISS ME - BUT LET ME GO

    When I come to the end of the road
    And the sun has set for me
    I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
    Why cry for a soul set free?
    Miss me a little--but not too long
    And not with your head bowed low.
    Remember the love that we once shared
    Miss me--but let me go.
    For this is a journey that we all must take
    And each must go alone. It's all a part of the Master's plan
    A step on the road to home.
    When you are lonely and sick of heart
    Go to the friends we know
    And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds.
    Miss Me - But Let me Go!

    ~~ Author Unknown ~~
    Thank you, this has given me more comfort than you know, at the same time as making me bawl my eyes out. Just thank you.

    I have discussed, with my family about the fact that I very well may not beat this cancer of mine, yet I intend to. I asked them "would you love me enough to let me go if I was so tired and worn out from the fight or there was nothing left to do for me. (they have all been through this recently last year with my mother's death so they knew what I was asking.) They said yes. They said it without having to think too much about it as they had already experienced the blessed relief for all that it can be, when it gets to that stage and how, even though we wish so much for them not to go from us we do have to ask ourselves..would we really wish them back to continue with their battle. The answer of course is no. Now comes the hard part of reconciling ourselves to the loss. Trust me, it does come in time. Hugs.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Dear Angela,
    So sorry to hear about your loss. I do hope once the sorrow isn't as raw any more, you will remember all the good times you and your cousin had and will be able to smile with the memories of him. I imagine that he was fairly young and it is never easy when someone hasn't lived a long and full life. Take heart that he isn't sufffering with the terrible illness any more.
    Thinking of you in your time of loss. May angels keep you company and keep you safe and well!
