Saying Goodbye To Dad…

Image

As many of you know, my Dad had Cancer for the past few years.  He was doing very well and able to overcome a tremendous amount of obstacles – still active, golfing, and going to the gym until just a few months ago.  About a year ago, the Cancer traveled to his brain, and after multiple surgeries, treatment & putting up the bravest & strongest fight I’ve ever seen, my Dad passed away exactly a month before his birthday.  His whole family was in the room, we were talking to him, praying for him, and sent him all of our love. I got to spend many precious hours by his side and I will cherish every moment until the day that I take my own last breath.  It is still unimaginable to me that I will never see him again in this life.

I would truly love and appreciate your patience with me and the respect for our privacy during this incredibly difficult time.  I am taking some time off to grieve with my family and properly feel the loss of my Dad.

If you knew Dad and would like to attend his wake, feel free to send me an e-mail for details.  If you’d like to send condolences, please donate to the Hospice where he spent his last days.  They took such good care of him and made him comfortable and peaceful for his last moments, as well as treated us so wonderfully.  These things are so important at the end of life and we are so grateful to all the incredible people who showed us so much love.  We are also donating to the National Brain Tumor Society, since this is the Cancer that ultimately took him from us.

My beliefs in life, exploration, passion and finding your own path to healing grow stronger with each passing second.  I appreciate each and every beautiful moment that I got to spend with my Dad and I fully feel each and all of your wonderful words of strength and encouragement.  Thank you to everyone who has shown my Family Love.

  4. Dear Tara, I feel you so much!
    I just went through the very same with my dad. He had cancer for the first time in 2008 and overcame it and healed like a champ in no time. But it came back last year, and after some extremely challenging months, he passed away this past February in hospice. Gosh, my heart goes out to you. It’s such a life-altering journey. It changes everything. Your whole reality.
    Sending you and your loved ones my most loving, healing, and lightful thoughts <3

  6. Hi Tara……I am so sorry for your families loss. On behalf on National Brain Tumor Society, we extend our condolences:( I also wanted to let you know that NYC will be hosting its 5th Annual Brain Tumor Walk on June 20th at Randall’s Island and would love for you and your loved ones to come out. I see that you live out West, but being that your hometown is NYC, I thought to reach out and offer any kind of support and assistance. Please feel free to reach out to me at dguerin@braintumor.org.

    Warmest regards, Diana Guerin, Director of Events, New York Metropolitan Area
