I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, FM. I have a sense of what you went thru. 2 women very close to me are going thru the horrible experience of breast cancer right now. Both just finished chemo and are on temaxophine right now. It was very, very tough on everyone around. I pray for them in my heart everyday. I'll be praying for God to be with you and your family. Try to stay strong, you hear?
FM, So sorry to hear about your loss. It is such a terrible ordeal, I lost my Dad thru cancer too. It was such a horrible period in our life. I still cry about it till date, cos it was so painful to see him go and there was little or nothing we could do about it. We prayed, tried drugs, infact we all fought it to the last. When i got the last call from him, he just said" my dear i am weak and i am just calling to let that if the Lord calls me tonight i am going, I am ready"
Well , he died a week later, in his sleep.
My dear what kept us going is remebering the times we spent with him, remembering how very very strong he was till the last day. Also importantly is the time i spent with him taking good care of him, making his special meals, generally having good conversations with him. When i remember these things, i smile. You are the only one who can really comfort yourself. Your sister will be happiest if you will stop crying, stop lamenting and remember all the good times you had with her.
May God strengthen you and your family at this time. God bless you
