A few of you have asked for updates since my stepfather's cancer transitioned to terminal back in late May. He passed away, peacefully, in his sleep last night while my mother held his hand. He had the chance to say goodbye to his kids and his brother, and I want to thank those of you who took the time to send him a card or a note. It really did make his last few weeks better to know he was thought of by complete strangers. He had a very very long battle with chronic leukemia, something like 20 years, and he is finally at rest.

We really do have a great community here, and I thank you for that.

    Janeen, I am so sorry. It's wonderful that he was surrounded by loved ones. Cherish the time you had with him and the memories that will be with you forever.

    I wish you and your family strength during this time.

    My heartfelt sympathies, Janeen. This is never an easy time, and I'm sure it's difficult to see your mom grieving. Thankfully, he had the opportunity to say his goodbyes, and he was fortunate enough to be holding your mom's hand as he passed. His suffering is over.

    So sorry for your loss. It sounds like he has consistently been surrounded by loved ones, not that that makes it any easier

    Oh Janeen I am very sorry to hear this. It really sucks when we lose the ones we love, especially one of our parents. My thoughts are with you and I know you'll find the strength you need at this time. Cherish the time you spent with him as you go through these next days. *Hugs*

    I am so sorry, Janeen. However, I am glad that his final days were surrounded with nothing but love. And I hope he got a crack out of my corny jokes I put in his card!

    I'm so sorry for your loss, my condolences. I am glad that he is now in peace and no longer suffering any pain. I can't imagine what your mom is going through or what you're going through but I hope that the grief will subside quickly and you can focus on the happy memories of him. Thank you for your update, I'm glad the letters from people on here helped, that is so sweet (I'm sorry I must have missed when that happened). I'll be thinking of you today.
