So sorry to hear about your father's illness. You and your family are in my prayers.




Boy, can I ever empathize with you and your Mom. This will be a hard and important time. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Wow. I'm so sorry to hear about your father's cancer. Thank you for your courage to share. May you find peace, strength and love to sustain you all through this time. Please keep us posted.
Thinking of you,

I am so sorry to read about your father.

It's so hard to realize that our parents are not really made of stainless steel, and they are more vulnerable than we or them like to admit. That we can lose them. {We kind of suspected it all along, but when we see it, it's all a different matter.)

I am going to bring a little piece of you and your family with me today,




Words are truly inadequate at this point. I know the hurt you are going through and wish you and your family the best. Keep us posted. My prayers are with you.




My words can be a shallow comfort during times of uncertainty, so I pray the people who are a tangible part of your life will be a comfort and support to you.

Hoping the best for you and your family. Remember what you said on Tom Peters' blog, "Even the motivators need motivating."

May you find encouragement, enlightenment, and inspiration as you have so freely given it.


Oh, Jory. I'm so sorry. Sending lots of good thoughts to you and your family.


Jory -

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.


Oh, lordy, Jory. This stuff is so hard on everyone involved.

Be the brave soul you are, keep your heart open and make sure *you* get enough rest. Funny movies help. Ditto anything comforting: now is not the time to be hard on yourself!

I wish you the very best on this rather more difficult part of life. Only good thoughts...


Jory and Joy,

Sorry to hear this news. It's awful to be confronted with mortality like this. Am thinking of you.

Katherine Stone

There are no appropriate words. You are brave to share such difficulty with the rest of us. I will say a prayer for your family right now.

I hope you and your family are facing this situation with serenity. and love.



Oh, Jory! I have no words. I am sitting her sobbing, knowing exactly where you are coming from. Knowing that moment where a phone call made everything change. You know how to reach me if you need or want to talk about this hell that is "growing up".

I am thinking of you and your family and you Dad. I'm here if you need someone who "gets it", sweetie.

Many, many hugs.


Oh Jory, I'm so very sorry to hear this news. I was away for a few days dealing with my mother's move...just getting caught up...heading over to your Mom's blog now...

Evelyn Rodriguez

Jory, I've just (semi) caught up now with my reading. Thanks for sharing and reaching out.

(Your story is strangely reminscent as my dad was the picture of health and he eschewed seeing doctors - nothing that popping an antacid couldn't cure. And he had cancer too.)

You, your mom and dad and family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Jory, I am so sorry - it was only when I learned of your father's death that I found this post, unread, like so many others, in my aggregator. And feel awful - for you, for your Mum, yopur brother and sisters - and awful that I didn't read this post (or the similar one on your Mum's blog) before today.

We make connections with people, through blogging - but the practical needs of our lives intrude, and as a result, I hadn't read many blog posts for well over a week. So, I was oblivious to your family's pain - and, not that I could have helped one iota, I wish I had known, and you had known that I cared.

I am thinking of you all.

Sour Duck

Sorry to hear about your father, Jory. My thoughts are with you.

Many people of this world prefer their partner in life older than them, because they believe that older people have more experiences and they have more too. As for me, I prefer younger partner than because I am a man. Man should be older than women when it comes to an intimate relationship. Well, if you are older than your partner, you are expected to look after her and to take good care to her when you grow old.
