Cancer! Seems to take whoever it pleases. I lost my dad to cancer, and can honestly say it is painfull seeing them go through it. I know it doesnt seem like much, but I and many others on this forum feel for your situation. May God bless you and your family throughout this difficult time and may he grant you and your family the ability to draw strength from this. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

God bless you

Mervin, I know how much you cared about your sister in law, you felt this deeply so be strong my friend.  We are thinking about you and your family may you all have added inner strength to  get through this with the memory of a beautiful life. There is never the proper words but you cared deeply and I could feel it in your words and deeds, she and your brother knew you cared a lot and would do anything to help. Be strong and keep on helping them they need you.

Sending special energy, thoughts and prayers to you and your loved ones Mervin.
And wishing you peace in the midst of mists of loss and bewilderment. At least her own pain and suffering is done and her soul is free.

Thank you all for the kind and uplifting words.
Yesterday we said the last goodbye and as hard as it is, life has changed the 'ways' of the one directly connected.

Thank you.

It must be hard for you Mervin. I am so sorry for your loss.

Mervin,

I do not think we have met, but I echo the thoughts expressed above. At time like this long 'speeches' are not desired, but I feel to repeat a well-known piece by the 15th century Scottish pastor John Donne, which I used only the other day in a tribute at the funeral of my best and longest friend (all of 78 years - but that is another story).

    "No man is an island entire of itself.
    "Every men is a piece of the continent, a part of the main.
    "If a clod is washed away by the sea, Europe is the less,
    "As well as if a promontory were,
    "As well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were.
    "Any man's death diminishes me, because I am of mankind
    "Therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls -
    "It tolls for thee! "

Give yourselves time to grieve - and there is no statute of limitation on grief.
