My thoughts this week..

Well, it has been two hard weeks since I lost my dad to pancreatic cancer. I swear he gave me his strength when he passed away because I manage to go from breaking down to still making it through each day. Yesterday, we got my dad's ashes back.. we're keeping them in the house, but there is such a strangeness to it. I picked up the urn, and so many thoughts went through my head. I feel terrible that there are people out there going through the same thing I am, and that so many of you have pancreatic cancer. I wish we could cure it, not matter what stage it's in. That goes for all cancers. Most of all, I wish it didn't take losing someone to know what they really mean to you. If I have any advice, it is to appreciate the time you have with your loved ones. Do everything way too much, including, hugs, kisses, phone calls, conversations. I wish I could have a chance to do these just one more time. Holding that jar of ashes made me realize that it was all that's left of my dad... no more hugs, no more "I love you"s and no more conversations. It has made me realize how precious life is. If only I could see him again, I'd give all the money in the world.

Your dad is looking down and smiling, because he has such a great daughter.
