    Unhappy My father passed away today at 11:55 am

    I have only made a couple of posts, but wanted to let you all know that my father (Kenneth Lewis Hardeman from Pelham, Alabama) passed away today at 11:55 am. He passed peacefully in his sleep. My heart aches more than it ever has in my life, but I'm comforted to know that he is no longer suffering, and that he is with my mother now. Diagnosed with lung met to brain cancer on April 18th, 2012, passed away on May 31st, 2012. My heart is in a million pieces, but I'm comforted to know that he passed away peacefully in his sleep, he is no longer in any pain or suffering and he's in a place so beautiful beyond our imagination and he's also reunited with my mother and what a beautiful reunion it must be.


    May you Rest In Peace my wonderful father. You made my life complete. God blessed me greatly when he picked me to be your daughter.

    Pegasus593, I am sorry to hear about your father's passing. I think your tribute to him in your postings expresses strongly the love that you both felt for each other. Peaceful thoughts to you and your family.

    Thank you Spouse. I don't know why or for what reason other than cancer that is affecting you or someone you love. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are also with you and your family.

    Thanks, I can always use good thought and prayers! (My husband is a stage IV lung cancer patient, inoperable.) But there is good news, he is feeling pretty darn good, despite having his 5th round of chemo, other than the expected fatigue on certain days post meds.

    Which makes me appreciate all the more the sudden loss that you had with your dear father. You show great composure and a truly thoughtful soul that you can think of others right now. Best wishes.

    Hi Kellie, I am so sorry to hear about your Father's passing. I know I found comfort in the fact that my Dad had been reunited with my Mom, but still I missed him terribly. My heart goes out to you as you begin your new life without your Dad. Your tribute and poem for your Dad touched my heart and you should be proud that you took such special care of him when he needed you the most. He was blessed to have you as a daughter as I'm sure you feel blessed that he was your Dad. Take care of yourself and come back to talk whenever you need to. God Bless.
