My condolences.


I'm so sorry for your loss. May he rest in peace.


dear graham,

don't know if you'll remember me, but i too lost my father, he died of cancer like yours. i laid next to him the day before his passing, those moments there with him are ethched in my memory for life.......he wasn't a big man in stature but he was a giant to me in the way he chose to live his life, the morals and values he always upheld, his kindness and giving heart to all...... his passing has changed me forever. though it's been some years, the memory never fades, he is in my thoughts every waking day.........what i can share with you is that somehow from the horrible pain and grief you will find solace and you will find a way to live each day because you know in your heart and mind that they would want you to go on......thanQ for sharing this deeply personal and emotional moment of your life......i only hope that in someway what i have written serves to lessen your pain......if you need to talk i am willing to listen.....

hugs to hold you, your long lost friend, christina

p.s. if only your photos could speak!! they are lovely!

Hello Graham,

My deep condolences. A lovely poem by Vera and Lorne Thompson.

God looked around his Garden and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon his earth and saw your loving face.

He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
His Garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering, he knew you were in pain.
And knew that you would never get well on earth again.
He saw your path was difficult, he closed you tired eyes,
He whispered to you "Peace be Thine" and gave you wings to fly.
When we saw you sleeping so calm and free of pain,
We would not wish you back to earth to suffer once again.
You've left us precious memories, your love will be our guide,
You live on through your children, you're always by our side.
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you on the day God called you home

Sorry about your loss. Keep on fighting and good luck with the site. He will always be a part of you as you are a part of him. Peace and hugs

I'm sorry to hear this. I lost my father to a sudden heart attack in 2001 and have a void that has never been filled. I hope you were able to receive some closure before his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

May peace come unto you at some point...whether today, tomorrow, or in the future. I know it is difficult, but if there is anything I can do for you, please let me know.


i am so sorry.


Hi Graham,
I really feel for you!
I lost my father a month ago to the same monstrous disease.
He also fought it 'til the end until it "took over".
I spent the last few days, never leaving his bedside, and he died with my mom and sisters at his side.
Hopefully those last days will become a dim memory and I'll be able to remember him as he was in healthier days.
He was always optimistic, and had a good word to say about everyone. We watched him become a shadow of the big, strong, wonderful man that was such an important part of our lives.
Thanks for sharing this with me. It meant a lot.
