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.

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.
