Default Prayers needed, please

My dear CruiseMates friends, my father-in-law has just been diagnosed with cancer of the panceras. We know that his time with us is limited. He has lived a wonderful life he is 83 yrs old. We are looking into hospice care for him. We are praying that he will survive thru the holidays, especially for his grandchildern and great-grandchildren we don't want Christmas to be forever tied to the time that Dziadzu died. Please pray for our family. Thank-you so much. All my love, LisaK

My prayers go out to your and your family. My father and father-in-law died within 9 days of eachother two weeks before Christmas, so I know who you feel. It was four years ago but it seems like yesterday.

Prayers going out for your father-in-law and your family, Lisa. The hospice organization is a wonderful group, and will help you all through this. I pray that he will live through the holidays and be kept in comfort.

Consider the prayers on their way, double time.

Remember, the saddest tears shed at a funeral are those for words left unsaid and deeds left undone. I am reminded of this every time I think of my in-laws.

Regards,
Thomas

I am sorry Lisa, I do send prayers and best wishes that the time you have left with him is filled with love and laughter. I know it will be very hard for you, expecially having to be the " strong one" for the grandkids and for your husband.

Prayers for all of you are winging there way to Heaven. Especially that he will last thru the Holiday's. When I was 8 my step grandfather died on Christmas morning. It was a sad day indeed, and it took many years for the fog to lift off the day.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We've used Hospice 4 times, and they are wonderful. As Phyll said, they will keep him comfortable and also take care of his caregivers and family.

My best to Dziadzu and to your family during this time. My thoughts are with you and I do hope that all of you find the strength to get through this time. Polish people can handle anything.

Take care,

LisaK-
My thoughts are with you and your family. I don't know how strong your father-in-law is, or if he's bedridden-but if he has enough strength, perhaps you or a member of the family can sit down with him for a chat and record his life story, or share some fun moments on tape. My husband's former wife, who is a geneology buff, and has dug into the family tree, did this with the last remaining brother of Trevor's father's family.It went back to 1913 (Dayton Flood) and even before. She video-taped it, and it was very moving, as it provided a history for the family. Uncle "Brick" died the next year, at 96.

I know you and your family will be a source of comfort for him through his coming weeks. Hospice will also provide wonderful assistance, guidance and support for all of you.

First things, first. Happy Thanksgiving=give thanks for all the great years he has had, plus the wonderful family he has raised, and the terrific work he has done.And, give thanks for each additional day he will have, hopefully with him being aware of the love around him.
Take care. Lynne
