    FKAGobucks877 The Most Power-Drunk

    I thought about simply posting this in the existing thread, but I want to be sure all of you see it. I cannot express how much it means to me and my family to view the three pages of condolences and well-wishes from all of you "perfect strangers". I took the liberty of showing my father the thread, and he was deeply touched, as was I. I want to thank you all, from myself and my family, for all the prayers, thoughts, well-wishes, etc. which were expressed by posters here towards my mother and my family.

    My mother had been fighting cancer for over 8 years at the time of her passing last week. She had been given 6 months or less to live on at least three prior occasions, and every time she beat the odds. I know none of you knew her personally, but please believe that she was the most courageous and faithful person I have ever met. She saw 3 weddings (mine and my two brothers) and 6 grandchildren in the time since she was first given a 3-6 month prognosis (December of 1996). She had a type of list, which were simply things she wanted to see completed or done before she left this world. The last item on her list was seeing and holding my child, which she was able to do on two separate occasions. I feel I am rambling, but I wanted to give you all some insight into the battle my mother had fought, along with some insight into the person she was. If she was still here, she would undoubtedly thank you all herself for helping to "take care" of her son. As she isn't, I will do it for her. Thank you all. It really does make a difference.

    I lost my father, grandfather, both grandmothers, and am about to lose an uncle to cancer. As a 10 year old who saw his dad beg his mother for a Morphine shot with a dose large enough to put him to sleep for good....to try to comprehend that my father - my best friend - wanted to die as a 10 year old kid....let's just say I understand cancer.

    You have my sincerest condolences. Take comfort in the fact that your father was able to have her by his side for many, many years.

    My grandmother passed away from cancer last year.

    Her final wish was to hold her new born great-great grand daughter.

    She got her wish.

    My mother spoke at the funeral and she said that my grandma told the new born that she was here to take her place. She said eveytime someone hugged the baby she would be getting a piece of that love.

    It sounds like your mom will be getting love for a long time to come.
    Best wishes and welcome back FKA.

    FKA, glad to see you back on the board even if only for a short time. I think I speak for all of us here at BP in that we're glad to have you back and our thoughts are with you. Hope to see you here more as everything settles down for you and yours. Take care for now.
