I am truly sorry for your loss. Yes! It is bitter-sweet.

I'm sure you and he shared some wonderful times, but often when it is time to move on acceptance with love make the two lives softer.

My very best wishes Mondo. Iceman

"Men flow into life, and ebb into death..."

Empty the self completely;
Embrace perfect peace.
The world will rise and move;
Watch it return to rest.
All the flourishing things
Will return to their source.

This return is peaceful;
It is the flow of nature,
An eternal decay and renewal.
Accepting this brings enlightenment,
Ignoring this brings misery.

Who accepts nature's flow becomes all-cherishing;
Being all-cherishing he becomes impartial;
Being impartial he becomes magnanimous;
Being magnanimous he becomes natural;
Being natural he becomes one with the Way;
Being one with the Way he becomes immortal:
Though his body will decay, the Way will not.

I remember when we talked about our elderly parents, how hard it is when they are in pain and just tired of this life. I am glad for your father, but sad because I know you must miss him so much.

I found this poem and read it when I gave my sister's eulogy. I miss her terribly - she was my sister but also my best friend. I find these words very comforting.


Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away to the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other,
That, we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way
which you always used.
Put no difference into your tone.
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.

Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me. Pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word
that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effect.
Without the trace of a shadow on it.

Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same that it ever was.
There is absolute unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?

I am but waiting for you.
For an interval.
Somewhere. Very near.
Just around the corner.

All is well.

I know how you feel. Cigarettes took my father's life when he was 54.

Sorry to hear about your loss.

.... experienced as quite sad by those who stay behind since those who passed are in a 'better' place and those who stayed are not, yet it might be of some solace to realize those who passed are ... and that there really isn't that much to be sad about.......

I lost my dad about a month ago and he was also ready to go. [almost 94 and a WW2 veteran who fought in the Battle of the Bulge] I also miss him because his mind was sharp all the way to the end and I was holding him when he died. It was an easy death and he didn't suffer at the end. His heart just quit beating and he was gone and never struggled for a breath. I know how you feel.

It's a mixed bag of feelings I'm sure. I'm guessing that you feel as though a piece of yourself has disappeared too? That's how I felt when my parents passed on.
