I haven't been around much as a month ago my dad was admitted to hospital and diagnosed with prostate cancer (which he had before and has been clear for about 7 years), which had spread to virtually ever organ in his body. Anyway, hospital gave him about 1 year to live, when he came home the hospice nurse said no only a matter of weeks and should have been admitted to a hospice, long story short he lasted just 7 days, passing away Tuesday morning (at home). Been sorting out forms etc with my mum and sister. Hopefully will be back to normal by next month as long as my younger brother doesn't get worse (lung cancer).

guyana1230, My sincere condolences for your loss and my prayers will include your brother.

I collect US, Canal Zone, Hawaii, Canada & Provinces, Rhodesia, British Virgin islands, British Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, French Polynesia, Great Britain, Iceland, Third Reich Germany, Scott International Part 1 and whatever catches my eye.
My deepest sympathy to you and your family in this trying time. Take care of each other and be sure to take the time needed to grieve. There is nothing that I (or anyone) can say to truly make things feel better. While I do not generally try to speak for the entire community I will state that you have become part of the family here and if there is ANYTHING that you need (even just a person to scream at or cry with) we are here for you.
I will send you a PM with my personal contact information in the event that you would like to take me up on this.
Be well, think upon the good times with a smile, and hold each other tightly.

Funeral over, cloudy but no rain until leaving in car so all good, now trying to get back to some sort of normality whatever that is. However my younger Brother doesn't look or sound at all well with his lung cancer (to be honest, we all expected him to go first), so may only be a short respite.
