Lost to Cancer, Won to Love
My Dad died nearly 6 months ago now from Liver Cancer. He was 57 and I am 32. He fought for 3 years with any and all kinds of chemo and radiation in the end. During that time Dad fought so hard to stay with his family and against the depression that threatened to take him before the cancer did. But he overcame all until Feb 19 of this year. His dying words were not vocal, but until he was no longer able to speak he said I love you to his family who surrounded him.
We kept him at home while his body shut down. Although he had cancer for 3 years, once his body was finished it happened very quickly. Within 1 week he went from moving and eating and talking to gone.
I know he is only gone in body. I know I will see him again.
The pain is so deep though and nothing can make that go away.
I miss you Dad.
I love you.
The world isn't the same without you and I struggle to find my security.
But you taught me that love triumphs and I will carry that legacy with me for all my days.
I love you
