I know it is for the best (his not ours) but it is still sad to hear this.

That you took the time to post here today or this week is an amazing thing.

If we were able to give you even a little bit of help during these long dark days then this site and Kevin's efforts has not been in vain.

Jeremy......i wish i knew what to say.

I'm sitting here in the library....people on both sides of me....and i'm tearing up. Trying not to start bawling.
I can honestly say, i feel what you are going through, and wish i could take the pain FOR you.

A poem that I found very fitting:

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around you and whispered “come to me.”
With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away.
Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

Thank you all.

There are no words that are going to do you much good.. just know, you and your family has been weighing heavily upon my thoughts.

I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

I'm sorry Jeremy, you lost your Father at too young of an age. I appreciated that your that your father chose to take on the cancer battle. Although he didn't ultimately win the battle, good things will come of his efforts. It is all research for them, and there will be a cure some day, and your Dad will be a part of that.

Jeremy,

I don't have any magic words. It's a terrible thing when you lose a parent. Know, however, that you will survive this.

You're a strong guy AND one who is not afraid to put the heart on the sleeve. That's what it takes, and you have what it takes.

In the meantime, my thoughts and prayers are with you and yours.

Best,

Wade
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

A few photos in memorandum and a gigantic THANK YOU for your words of encouragement and love.

Dad and I at the lone Gopher game I was able to get him to last football season.

Dad and I at the Vikings '08 (I think) home opener. The last Vikings game I was able to attend with him. The caption I had on this photo was: "The old man and myself. I was honored to treat him to a Vikings game. I look forward to many, many more." =(

And the ink that I got this evening in honor of him.. He'll forever be in my heart AND on my skin:

I dont post here to much any more but I have to reply..

I lost my dad on July 28th of this year, I sat with him during his final breath...so I know exactly what is going through your mind.

Please do not stop talking to him, please still ask him for help, please treat him as if he is still with you..Because, he is.

A good friend of mine wrote a song for Sept 11th victims, but it is something worth sharing now..

I put these lyrics in his coffin before they closed it..



Where are u now


Here I am lost without u
I can't feel myself
I can't even move
There's so much I want to say
If I could get through to you


Where are you now
Are you standing on the edge
I'll b strong
Until I see you again


Don't say goodbye
There's no reason why
I will have the chance
to say I love you one more time


All I want to do
Is be there next to you




Where are you now
Are you standing on the edge
I'll b strong
Until I see you again
Where are you now
If it's time for letting go
Tell me now
Because I can hold on forever more


Where are you
What took you away from me
I will hold on forever more
