    That is terribly tough and tagic news. Mate, I went through something similar and be consoled in that there wasn't a large gap between them. It is a small consolation but it is a life truism when it comes to parents. Best wishes byso. I doubt I can do anything but call me if you need to for anything.

    Sorry to hear it.  You and your family will be OK, but it will take time.  Its not easy losing parents and grandparents.

    Cheers Byso...I lost my Dad in 1989, and my Mum in 2004, life is never the same after they go but you do move on, it's in our very make up that after a period of grieving that your mind allows you to continue on with life, so hang in their buddy!!

    Thanks Steve, I wondered why Byso was so quiet, especially during the election. Tough times.

    My wife lost both her parents within one month earlier this year so I have a feel for what he is going through. Best wishes Byso. Prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. (It puts a poor footy season into perspective.)

    Thanks for the kind words guys.

    It's a tough year.

    FYI anyone that smokes, please seriously reconsider. It took both my parents.

    Re: Sympathies & Condolences Byso

    Byso after my two daughters witnessed their Grandfather dying from that long word I can't spell Empha...whatever, there was no way they would ever be smokers....I'm pleased to say I now have two no smoking son in laws to add to the two non smoking daughters and the two non smoking parents (us) in the family. I have 4 grandkids and whilstever I am alive they will never smoke I'll bloody kill them myself if they do!!

    They can advertise bad images all they like, but it's only when you have to go through what you have just gone through (and I did twice) that the penny will finally drop.

    As I said before mate hang in there. it does better better eventually.

    Can't agree more mark. My brothers and myself have never smoked. But I'm sure many more families will see the effects of smoking themselves over the next decade or so.

    Thats horrible to hear Byso.

    I got Leanne to quit smoking earlier this year and she will never turn back, she hates the smell of them now thankfully.

    I used to smoke, but will never again pick one up, I truly detest them nowadays, don't know what flicked the switch in my head but something did.

    Re: Sympathies & Condolences Byso

    That's great stuff.

    Just for the record my mother died of Lung cancer at 77 yo in July she was diagnosed in February. She would've smoked 30 odd a day.

    My Dad got emphysema 10 years ago and was on 24 hr a day oxygen for the last 2 years. He also had a blood disorder that required blood transfussions for the last 4 years starting off at monthly eventually to  weekly.
    He was a fit bloke all his life, but unfortunately smoked about 20 per day. When diagnosed he quit straight away 10 years ago, he attempted to quit many times over 20 odd years.

    I guess if you are a regular smoker, I'd say there's a fair chance it will catch up with you unless you quit before its too late.

    Obviously anything can get us, but its hardly wise to keep at something that there's a high chance it will get you.

    I've now lost three family members over the years to it too. These days we know so much more about the dangers than they did however. 

    The good news is if you quit early enough its possible for your body to recover and there be no long term damage.  So the earlier the better.

    Sorry to hear about all this Byso.  I didn't open the thread because I figured it was probably about the Libs losing the election.  This puts that into context.  Thoughts and wishes with you and yours.
