Oh, Joan... I'm really very sorry. I am still going to pray for him. May he always be able to stay close enough to watch you and your siblings as you go about your everyday tasks. I pray that you feel him holding your hand through your hardest times, including now. I'm praying for a lot of warmth, love, peace, hugs, togetherness and blessings for your family.

Dear Joan's Dad,
Stay as brave as you are. Joan still is your little girl. :) Praying for you all.

BIG HUG.

Oh man that sucks. At least you have wonderful memories that you can hold on to wonderful memories. There is a famous Mexican song that speaks about death and how you should live life to it's fullest. It's a song by Antonio Aguilar. I'll translate the lyrics for you. You may not like the music but the lyrics are amazing. I apologize of the translation or if the lyrics appear bizzare.

I go through life singing
recording the world
If they want I'll tell them
I am a soul without owner
I do not care about anything
To me life is a dream

I drink when I want
I don't lie. I'm very sincere
and I'm like seagulls
flying from port to port
I know life is short
in the end we owe it.

The day I die
I will not take anything
Let's give joy to joy
life ends soon
what happened in this world
reamains only memories
Once dead I'll just take
dirt with me.

the day I die
I will not take anything
Let's give joy to joy
life ends soon
what happened in this world
remains only memories
Once dead I'll just take
dirt with me.

So sad you are having to go through this. Your dad has always sounded like such a wonderful dad to have. May you find peace in knowing he suffers not.
