Jim,

Very sorry to hear about your loss. I had deja vu as I was reading your post. The exact same thing happend to a college buddy of mine. His dad was only 50 and passed away at his memorial day family picnic. And it also happen in their bathroom, but my friend was the one who found his dad and tried CPR to no avail.

Your observation about the dash is very true. Occurance such as these and my own battle with cancer have taught me this.

Enjoying.
Paying attention.
No hurry to get on to something more important.
Whatever we are doing is important.
Experience each moment along the way.
Time is a gift.

Jim,

Andrew and I were horrified when we heard the news. You and your family are in our thoughts. I'm sure you are surrounded by loved ones, but if there is anything we can do for you, please just ask.

I'm currently in Cape Breton right now, to attend a funeral for my friends mother, who passed away on Saturday. But I'll be back in Halifax in a day.

Jim, thanks again for everything that you've done for me. I never knew your father, but I know he raised a great son/person.

Jim,

I know i havent been around here as long as some of the others... however i feel your pain to some extent, I had a similar situation happen with my grandfather when i was younger. However that is not what this post is about... just remember to keep your head up and be strong... also be confident in the values and integrity your father instilled in you. Going by what i have seen, you are a wonderful example of a caring and compassionate person. God bless you and yours.

Matt

Just reading this made me burst into tears, right here in the library. I can't imagine how you feel.

Please accept my deepest condolences and my crying shoulder. I am here if you need me.

Sincerely and Respectfully,

Jim,
I am so sorry for you loss. I lost my grandmother 5 years ago and the greatest words she ever spoke to me at the end of her life was that her life circle here on earth was completed and that it was time for her to start a new. A new adventure!

My cousin found this poem on the internet and has framed it with a picture of her.
"It is a deep mystery, this matter of life and death.
That the same person who brought us * thousand joys can one day leave us shedding a thousand tears...
So suddendly, sometimes that we grope blindly for words left unspoken and for the hug we needed to give, to say good-bye. And we wonder, how this thread that holds us all to life can be so thin and fragile...
Until one day, we find the courage to accept that the living aren't meant to understand death, only to celebrate life.
And to remember that the only real death is forgetting."

Your father sounds like a wonderful man who celedbrated life itself. He will never die because he lives on within you and your memories.
May God bless you and your family and give you all stregth in this time of sorrow.

Kendra


These words

Came to this thread a bit late, but Jim, you have my deepest sympathies. We don't know each other too well, but knowing that the BC is this tight, know that we'll all be there for each other, no matter what happens.

Take care man.
