Ive just got back from my workmates house. Hes dying of cancer and going down hill rapidly

He arranged for all his friends to go around his house for some drinks and food to say our goodbyes

He was totally upfront about this and said he wanted to see us all and have a wake while he is still alive so he doesnt miss the party!!!

Although i feel upset now as did most of my colleagues i got to have a good chat to him and his wife and it was nice to have chance to say all the nice things you say when someone dies to his face while he is still with us.

Not sure why i posted this -just thought it was a good idea- and probably wanted to tell someone about it as i feel a bit down!

I feel a bit sad reading this and i have a lump in my throat too.

Good on you fella for attending it must not have been easy for any of you to go,i would have found it really difficult to hold it together and find anything to say or even speak.

Hi Rhinochaser.

What a brill idea, in a way you all got to have a good time with a good buddy i guess. Sure its tough though, good pal of mine died earlier this year from the big C, top bloke he was ,miss him so much as do all his family.

Can tell you one thing though bud, the sadness doesnt last for ever but the love does you know ? Christ its bringing tears to my eyes just reading your post dude. Be strong for him an his family and always remember the fun times had together with him .

Take care bud, Steve W....
