If you worked with end-stage cancer patients then you probably heard some interesting stories. I haven't shared this on the forum yet but my husband had a NDE in 1999. He went into cardiac arrest and it took thirty minutes to revive him. I won't go into the details of that right now. The NDE had a profound effect on him. It also brought me comfort and eased my grief when he passed in 2000 because I knew he had returned to that place that he didn't want to leave before. Thank you aikido.I am shocked and saddened to hear about your daughter. I can't even imagine what you are going through.
The problems after her death will only add to your grief as a father, and I pray that Jesus can walk beside you now.
I used to work closely with end-stage cancer patients and their families.
In this sad world of ours, sorrow comes to all.
"For grief has darkened my eyes: my body is like a shadow... My days fade like an echo; the strings of my heart have snapped."
--the Book of Job
"Nights of anguish. Inconsolable sisters, why did I not kneel more to greet you, lose myself more in your loosened hair?"
--Rainer Maria Rilke
"What was so terrible about grief was not grief itself, but that one got over it."
"I get up. I walk. I fall down. Meanwhile, I keep dancing."
--Hillel the Elder, a Jewish rabbi in Jesus's time.
Our hearts and prayers are with you!
