I am about to lose my Dad to prostate cancer and it is almost too painful for me to stand. He has been a great father and although he has had this for awhile, he has gone downhill so quickly, I am unprepared to lose him. He is a great Dad and Papa to his grandkids. He had a long talk with us last night that went on for several hours; him giving advice, reminicing and telling tales of his youth. He is 78 years old and a huge part of my life. How do you deal with this? I lost my Mom 20 years ago but this is so raw and unnerving.
