    My H's dad passed away last night. The blessing is that the disease was swift and he didn't have to linger and suffer. It's amazing to me how within two weeks of being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer his body shut down and now he's gone. I will miss him, he was my buffer when H's mom was around.

    He was a strong, robust, hard working man who did right by his family. I know H is upset, but he's also glad that his dad didn't linger on in pain. I think the memorial service in FL will be next week and then we'll have another on LI next month some time. I will go to the LI service with the girls and H next month.

    Thanks for all your prayers and positive thoughts these past couple of weeks - truly appreciated.

    Condolences to all of you. It is good that he didn't linger and suffer. My aunt passed when I was a teen, she too was just diagnosed and passed within a couple of weeks. All of these years later it is what I remember being commented on the most after she passed, that it was a blessing that she didn't linger and suffer. Extra special prayers for your husband.

    I'm glad he did not suffer overly long. Things will be different - but consider: he's pain-free now!
