Re: [MOL] To all -- Thank you/Karin



Karin, I am truly sorry for your loss and know that your heart aches for you
father.  Your father will never leave you my friend.  Remember that he is
alive in every breath that you take; not just his genes, but his teachings,
laughter, teasing, hugs, smiles, hope and most of all his love you for that
is a fundamental part of who you have become.  I am sure that he is smiling
down at your from heaven with pure love and the proud heart of a papa...
Keep him close to you, for that is where he wants to be.

God Bless you my friend.. Many hugs from your friends on mol.. Carla

Subject: [MOL] To all -- Thank you


>I want to thank all of you for your condolences.  I have been on this board
>since September (although relatively silent) and have been amazed at your
>ability to help one another through this very difficult, trying etc.
>journey.  In my draft box, I have a very long e-mail to you all about my
>Dad's last week.  I think I had to write it for my benefit, in a way to own
>the experience and fully integrate it into my being.  For those of you who
>don't know my situation, my Dad was diagnosed in July with adenocarcinoma
of
>unknown primary.  He went to MD Anderson and tried several chemo regiments
>but the tumors outwitted them all.  He struggled valiantly and willfully
>throughout his battle with cancer.  My Dad is know in my heart as the
strong
>and vibrant man feared nothing and did everything.  From scuba diving to
>marathon running -- his 61 year life was very full.  He lived with a
passion
>that few have known and was taken far too quickly before our very eyes.
>Again I want to thank all of you for everything, your jokes, suggestions,
>(not really the recipes because I don't cook--yet) information, but most of
>all for your compassion.  I am very angry at this disease (and actually
>everything) but also know that it has changed my life--some for the better,
>some the worse.  I am without my father but with the knowledge that he
loved
>me and was proud of me.  I am without my running partner and friend but
with
>a new inner strength and courage.  I am profoundly sad but know I must and
>will go on--for my son, husband, mom, siblings and for myself.   So now, I
>continue on ... the same but different.  I will be leaving you all very
soon
>as this board is so active and wonderful but I feel the need to continue on
>my own for now.  To live my different life--to acclimate myself to my new
>role--as my days as my father's researcher and caregiver are at an end.  I
>have learned much from you all and feel very fortunate to have been allowed
>to glimpse into your lives, minds and hearts.  With much love and
gratitude,
>Karin
