    Dad died earlier today. 64. Too young. At least he is at peace. I am pretty crushed. :crying:

    Dude ... so young, sorry for your loss.

    Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened.

    Thoughts and prayers are with you... My Dad just turned 60. He's still pretty healthy, but I was talking to him the other day, and I was noticing just how old he was looking. He still works every day. I hope he has another 20-30yrs in him...

    My father died 3 months ago from a brain tumor. He was 61. I wish I didn't, but I know exactly how you feel. Prayers sent.

    If you loved him, and I'm sure you did, you will remember him fondly. If you have children, speak of him often.

    I'm sorry for your loss, that's too young to go and any kind of cancer is just evil. I've lost an aunt and a brother to it.

    My grandfather died at 68 of lung cancer. Never even smoked, it was originally a cancerous stomach ulcer that spread to the lungs.

    It hurts, and it always will. But remember the good times, and it helps alot.

    Sorry for your loss. That's one of the more terrible diseases I hope we find a cure for.

    I'm sorry to hear it, buddy. The same thing happened to a very good friend of mine, just last weekend (and it was cancer with him, too). On the bright side -- or what passes for a bright side -- the cancer's done. It dies with him, and it isn't bringing him any more pain or weakness. His hurting's stopped.

    Thoughts and prayers outbound to you and the rest of your family. Give your mom a hug, when you can.

    I am sorry about your dad. Someone has already posted it and it's true. Remember the good times. Those memories can get you through the toughest of times.

    I'm sorry. My dad died due to cancer and we were sad but also relieved when he died. He suffered a great deal in the last month. Cherish all the good memories.
