Dad finished his battle with cancer
 
Hi everyone,
Been pretty choked up and haven't been to keep myself together.

After not seeing my dad for years, I was contacted by him just 6 weeks ago when he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. At the age of 59 he's just passed away of very rapidly growing brain tumor(my mother was also diagnosed with a brain tumor 4 years ago). The most amazing man I have ever known.

The last time I saw him(a month ago). My fiance carried him to the top of this very small hill so we could take a picture together. Going to miss him very much.

I'm sorry for your loss. It's always so tragic to lose any family member, and especially a parent.

The only advice I can offer is to learn from this. Life is too short to not speak to/see anyone you care about.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is always so sad. How scary that both your parents were diagnosed with brain tumors. I hope with time you'll feel better soon. *hugs*

I'm sorry about the loss of your dad. I lost my mom to cancer in 1995, so can relate to your pain. I hope you give yourself lots of time to grieve. What a great picture of the two of you together.
