    Brent passed away last Monday, June 3 at 7.55pm. His mother, father, sister, brother in law, son and I were with him. It was a beautiful experience, he was peaceful, we played music and held him right till the end.

    His service followed his death, it was beautiful, it capture the essence of him perfectly and we had well over 100 people there.

    Not dealing with this very well! My Dad is my world & I also don't know much about melanoma. He has surgery end of month to remove spleen & lymph nodes under his armpit. If anyone can relate or share some experiences with melanoma that would be great x

    I'm not really sure what to write.. But I wanted to hear from people who have been in a similar position or have had this cancer themselves. About a month and a half ago my Dad got sick with the flu. But after about a week he couldn't breathe very well. After about 3 weeks he went back to the doctor and told her the antibiotics weren't working, and breathing was getting more difficult, so she sent him for an X-ray. During the X-ray (which happened on the Thursday) he saw a large mass in his right lung.

    Still havn't heard from the Melanoma clinic and Darryn won't ring to find out why. We were told two to three weeks and it has been four now. I have told him he should ring the hospital and find out why we haven't heard from them but he just nods his head and doesn't do it. I think its because he doesn't want to know in case it more bad news. He is still always tired and says he is going to quit his job almost daily. I try to be supportive and loving but he makes it hard when he is always grumpy.

    In March this year, I sent my aunt Edna a large bouquet of flowers to her home in Israel, to wish her a happy 70th birthday. Attached to the flowers was an invitation to spend a two-week holiday with me in Australia at a time that suited us both. She called immediately to thank me and tell me that she was delighted to accept the invitation.

    Edna is my mother’s sister and has been a constant throughout my life; in celebrations, in sadness and in everyday matters, she has always been present.

    Friends..... We all have them...... We all need them..... A friend for a reason... A friend for a season.....

    The season is about to change, the leaves have turned the glorious colours of autumn and winter is only a few days away...... Winter... The cold mornings, the miserable, wet and windy grey days....darkness comes earlier.
    It's natural to feel "grey".

    I'm feeling grey.
