My DH's sister died last week after a year long fight with cancer. I usually visited twice a week to do reflexology on her feet (for relaxation and detox). Nothing really prepares you, but at least you are putting yourself there in the moment, now, when he needs you.

Wow Staci... that made me tear up. Your dad sounds like such a wonderful man. Legacy is the perfect name and a perfect way to remember your dad by. I'm really sorry you're going through a tough time. Your dad will always be in your heart... even when he is gone from this world, he will never fully be gone. A piece of him will lie in your heart, your children's hearts, etc. Lots of hugs

Staci . . . ((((((((HUGS)))))))) and please, pass that to your dad as well, and tell him I think the name suits well.

And that I think he has raised a daughter who is filled with fire, and grace, the courage to love without reservation, the heart of a Fila.

Hugs and vibes for your family in this trying time. I think is a wonderful idea to have a physical connection for your boys to the great man who raised their amazing mother.

-hugs- This made me tear up. Be strong and think of good memories. Remember that Legacy you speak of and hopefully it'll be easier. I think that name would be an awesome name, especially because of the meaning behind it.
