Hello and thank you to each and everyone of you for your thoughts, prayers and expressions of sympathy. A special thank you to Molly for thinking of me and starting this thread. My family sends a deep appreciation for your support and compassion.

My Dad (Jack) was like a ray of sunshine, always smiling, always happy and positive, even in his pain and suffering. The nurses in the hospital called him "Happy Jack" because he was always cheerful and smiling.
I will always remember his smile and unconditional love.

Thanks again for all your expressions of sympathy.

Love to all our CD friends,
Janice

Janice, sounds like you have happy memories of a great person. To be cheerful when in pain is no small deal. Your Dad must've been a swell person to know. Hugs to you and your family. My Dad is grumpy and opinionated, but I still love him and this makes me want to go visit him and hug him, too.

Your description of your Dad, Janice, fits my Dad to a "T" as well. We called my Dad "Dauntless Douglas" and that he was.....loved by everyone and oh so giving and caring.....he always put the other guy before himself. Maybe our Dad's will meet in their journeys beyond this place. They'd probably make quite a team. Take good care.

Thanks palval1.

My dad had a strong spirit to live and wanted to get strong enough to plant another summer vegetable garden. He loved gardening and pruning his fruit trees. He had a chair in his vegetable garden, it is still there. This past summer, he told me that he would hoe until he got tired, he would sit down in his chair and rest awhile and talk to God... he said it was his meditating chair....he said he got a lot of work done...in his garden and in himself. He told me he was ready to meet his maker whenever God sent the angels to get him.

He was a walking miracle, at five years post pancreatic cancer, but had been in and out of the hospital 4 times with pneumonia since Christmas Eve 2008. He was weak and tired with latent COPD from emphysema. I was with Dad when he died, listening to Irish melodies playing on the CD, the sound of birds singing, the irish harp and tin whistle. His spirit was at peace.

That is beautiful. Would that we all are so lucky as to go in a peaceful way if we choose. And, "One is closer to God in a garden"....

I know this is so0ooo late. My dial up is keeping me from reading to much on here.

I'm so sorry to hear about your Dad's passing.
Just know that I understand and feel for you during this time.
Losing my Dad years back is a huge ache in my heart.
As time marches on... remembering him with stories always make me smile, and keeps him alive inside me.

A big squeeze hug to you!
