Dad had esophagus and stomach cancer. Although I do not believe in an organized religion, I believe that our dad's have been reunited with their own families in heaven.

Irene I am sorry for your loss of your Dad. Our world falls down when we hear that awful news of Cancer.
My husband of 44yrs. was diagnosed with an inoperable, incurable, aggressive terminal cancer caused by working with ASBESTOS in the workplace. He cut asbestos as a carpenter. He was a young man in his 20's. The fibres of this deadly material lodged in his lungs and started a slow growing tumour which takes 40-60yrs. to develop. He was 65yrs. of age. Died a slow painful death over 3yrs.39days. I nursed him all this time hurt by seeing him die slowly. He died 16 months ago 16 days before his 66th birthday. He didn't get the chance to retire from working hard for 47yrs. of his working life.
Your mother will be in the same place as me grieving the loss of a husband.
Grief is a hard cross to bear as the pain is so very difficult to deal with over weeks, months, and even into years. You can't live with someone for so many years and be bonded in a relationship and get over their death soon.
If anyone in your family is struggling with grief you could get good support from a grief counsellor trained to help families cope with grief. Often we can get stuck in grief and not be able to move forward in time and the grief will be prolonged for even years. crying is the best part of grief so don't stop this coming. After each crying session you will get stronger and Healing will take place. Good support from family and friends is very beneficial at this time. Don't let anyone tell you that after the funeral you should be getting better and over your loss. This is not true. This statement will make your grief harder and longer. Only those who know what grief is will understand it takes a long time. You can even keep a journal and write in this all your feelings and thoughts of your dad and tell him in your writing how much you miss him and what his death has done to the family. Let him know you love him. You can even write letters to him. This is also a very therapeutic way of dealing with grief and getting pain out of your system. You will find out what works for you. TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME. This is how we all get through grief as the healing process is slow. Photos, songs, certain foods, will all act as triggers and you may find yourself crying. this is normal but painful memories. Memories will change over time. TIME is all we have to heal from our loss. I hope this help you understand the aspects of grief. May God comfort you all and give you His Peace.
