    RIP. He sounds like an excellent role model. (And fuck you, cancer.)

    @DocktorJ I'm glad that at least one good thing came from such a horrible disease. I'll give him a nod when I play a game later. Take care.

    Sad news, but he sounds like he was an absolutely awesome Dad.
    All the best for the coming days and weeks. It'll be tough, but it sounds like you've got a lot of good memories.

    Thankyou all for your posts, I've found it cathartic to read your lovely gestures, as well as to write about my Dad. He passed away half an hour ago. Tryhard - never give up hope. My dad was given a 6-9 month prognosis for pancreatic cancer and survived 21 months. On Sunday the district nurse expected him to die within 4 hours and he lived 54 hours. I have had more closeness with my Dad in the last two years than ever before, and in a way we have cancer to thank for that. I have a wonderful template to work from in bringing up my 6-month-old son. Make the most of your time together. Thanks guys.
    Best of luck buddy. Take care.

    It's good he was able to stay with you for a bit longer, DocktorJ. Remember to take care of yourself in the coming months.

    Sorry to hear that DoktorJ. Lost my mother very suddenly to cancer last year and also looked back with fondness at the times we gamed together.

    Like your dad my mother gamed pretty much right up until she was ill.

    I've been in the same position DoctorJ, just get through the first couple of weeks when everything is utterly upside down, eat well, try to sleep and don't feel guilty grabbing a bit of "normal" time occasionally as it'll help you cope. The first year is probably the worst but it really does get easier with time.
