My FIL got sick in the middle of November. He was diagnosed with cancer at the beginning of January. He passed away tonight. We're all in shock but at the same time, I'm glad he didn't suffer longer. I've heard so many stories of people being sick for months. My husband rushed to his parents' house from work. My parents came and got our son so I could come down. I know this sounds morbid, but I've never seen a dead person other than at funerals after they're all made up. I didn't know how to react. I know he's gone and it's not REALLY him. The funeral home workers came and we left the room. It's very hard to see my husband so upset. I knew this day would come but I never thought it would be so soon.
