Last reply: 5 years ago

My dad died of a heart attack, brought on by a blood clot, caused by pancreatic cancer quickly on the morning of Thursday 21st August 2008. Diagnosed the previous day. So the passing was unexpected.

We can be greatful that he didnt have to suffer the final stages of cancer.

Im not sure what to say here, so I will just retype the newspaper announcement.

So sorry for your loss, I came across this post by accident...my fathers name was John Anthony Peters & he passed away on January 21, 2008 from lung & stomach cancer. So strange that 2 men by the same name passed the same day & year. I know how you feel & I'm glad your father did not suffer..we found out about the cancer only 5 1/2 months before my dad passed & it was an awful time watching him go through what he did, how do you say goodbye to someone you love so much in such a short time ??? My thoughts & prayers are with you... Kris Shearer (Peters), Ohio USA
