Jim, you have been (and still are) an amazing son. Your father was very lucky to have you by his side (and you, him). My condolences.

Sorry for your loss. I'm glad his pain is over, and that the family and friends had the opportunity for the final party. He will always be a part of you.

Jim, I'm really sorry about the loss of your father. I'm happy that you did decide to go ahead with that party, because that will always be a positive memory for you and others.

Very sorry for your loss, but I'm glad there was a last party for him. Very nice way to close out the memories with him.

Sorry for your loss, Jim. Know that your dad is now at peace and is no longer in pain. I'm glad you and your family were able to have one final good day with him before his passing.

Re: My dad passed away last night

His pain is over. There are, no doubt, feelings of relief mixed with sadness. The party was a great idea. I think everyone involved is happier because of it.

I remember when my father was dying, the last family function he attended was my daughter's two-year birthday party. He went back to the hospital a week later and was in pain for a whole week before he died (cancer of various organs, including liver). He was in a coma at the end but waited till my youngest sister arrived (from another state) before he finally allowed himself to go. We were relieved. I think he just wanted to know she had come to see him before he went.

I didn't take any pix of my father at the party, probably because he looked so ill. I just have one shot of my daughter playing with a toy he gave her and his legs and cane are in the shot.

Re: My dad passed away last night

I lost my dad three years ago. It was tough, but he too wasn't well so I knew it was time. Still hurt like heck though when he went.

My thoughts are with you and your family Jim.

I lost my dad in 2001. Over the years you put it in the back of your mind and move forward. However, my first child was born last month and all of a sudden thoughts of my dad hit me multiple times a day. Man, I wish he was here to see his grandchild, I wish he was here to give me advice. Every day with my son I think "What would my dad have done in this situation." I feel bad that my son will never meet his grandfather.

Yeah. That echoes a lot of my thoughts as well. My daughter was born almost two years ago, and that's when similar thoughts started coming up for me, but also some of the less favourable memories. I don't talk about my dad much to my wife (we met the month he passed, so she never met him), and I have NO idea how I'll approach the subject with my kid when she starts asking about him.
