Hi everyone. I actually stumbled through this forum a while back and forgot all about it until today. Here's the link to my dad's journey the past week with stage 4 non small cell lung cancer with mets to all major bones... He was in Hospice. He was only 43.
http://www.justmommies.com/forums/f4...nd-6-10-a.html
I have lost many friends and family members over the years and it never gets easier. But I do feel peace this time around because I was able to be with him so much at the end. I am comforted knowing he is no longer in pain.
Also, are there any other atheists/agnostics/non-religious who have lost someone here?
I am sorry for all of your losses and hope I can stick around here some over the next few days when I have time.

I am sorry for your loss. I lost my mom last September to small cell carcinoma of the lung with mets to the brain. My son died of leukemia 31 days later.

I'm so sorry for your loss. My father died nearly 12 years ago when I was 9, but I wasn't able to be with him. As tough as I know it is i'm glad you have found some peace.

Thanks for all of the welcoming thoughts everyone. I am so sorry for all of your losses as well. I am really worried about making it through this Father's Day.

I'm so sorry, hun. My Dad also died of non small cell lung cancer (in February), so I know what you're dealing with right now. If you ever need to talk, feel free to PM me.

Many HUGS to you! I'm sorry for your loss. My DH just lost his dad and is an atheist. I'm not really religious but I do believe in spirits and who knows what else (i lost my mom in Feb 09).

Take it a moment at a time for getting through fathers day. My DH mentioned how he just noticed yesterday that fathers day is on Sunday and it made him super sad. It was moment by moment for me on mothers day - i had a few break downs - but i made it. And I felt good about being able to still love her and honor her memory, as you will do with your dad.
