I have written a few times about my dad being in the hospital for a few weeks and the doctors running a bunch of tests but nothing conclusive, although thinking it was maybe liver cancer. My mom called yesterday morning and he had passed away in his sleep. It is really strange that he went from being good but only jaundiced 5 weeks ago, 4 weeks ago he got and overnight pass from the hospital and he walked around and looked at his cherished rose gardens, to passing away so fast. I am only happy he had no pain, not on pain killer of any sort did he need to take and up until the day he passed away he always was completely aware of who was there even his grandkids. I am so mad at my family though, I have a brother and a sister, my brother met me and my mom at the hospital to have a little visit after my dad passed away then he went home, my sister came to visit for half an hour and went home. I spent the whold day with my mom and had she wanted the whole night and my husband would have looked after our kids. My 3 nieces and nef.,early 20 never stepped one foot in the hospital. We have a very small family as it is and I can,t believe what I have for a family. I am completely shocked as to the lack of support they are giving and my husband is so pi---- o-- that he was ranting and raving all night. My sister is the first one to ask if she wants something and she is not willing to help at all, she is of in law law land. My great grand mother who is 85 in a wheelchair but far away is upset she can do nothing to help us is also feeling that all the young ones are dying and she should leave and they should be spared and have more time here. I am at a loss, I will do what ever I need to do to help my mom out and be there for her, my husband and I offered to rent out our house and find a new one for all of us or see if we could enlarge hers to acchomodate all of us but it may take way to much work and money. She has a 1/2 acre lot and my dads rose garden is there and we would like to keep it in good shape in honor or all his work over all these years. What ticks me off the most is I usually am the bag guy in the family, my sister in law with the 3 nieces and nef. does not talk really to me, my sister talks to me but she is in her own little world and only snaps out of it if she needs or wants something. If anyone has any feedback I would really appreciate it. Thanks Sandra

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
