    Has fought an amazing battle with cancer. Unfortunately, the cancer won. Tonight my husband and daughter and I said our goodbyes to the most incredible man we have ever known. He isn't in heaven yet, but will be soon reunited with those who have gone before. I am so thankful for hospice and the loving care they give. I will grieve for a very long time. The two rocks in my life have been taken away in the past two years. This hurts beyond words.

    I am so sorry. My Dad lost his battle with cancer too back in 2005. It's such a horrible thing.

    His obituary is the most heartfelt I have ever read. I am so blessed I was able to help contribute to it. It is a celebration of his life and all the lives he touched. He was prepared and helped to make plans for his funeral. This is one of the songs he picked out. So perfect and so him. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0TInLOJuUM

    This is so very beautiful. Music is so powerful for expressing our emotions and who we are. He must have been a wonderful man. Thank you for sharing and again, my sympathy.

    I hope you'll find joy in the memories; of all the great and wonderful things that your brother enjoyed with your family. :hugs:
    It's very sad when we lose a loved one, and to read about your mention of him reuniting with those who have gone before is a great thought, and it surely will give you a peace of mind. May God always be with your family at this time of sorrow, and my prayers are with you too.

    Kinder... I'm so sorry for your family, it sounds like they lost a very special man!!!
    It is so hard to watch someone die from cancer... I've sadly lost 4 gparents to that horrible disease (different kinds). It is hard to see those people that you only knew as big and strong or so comforting have this happen to them!!!!
    Prayers for your family during this time of grieving!!!!
