Family and Friends of George McCracken

George McCracken is my Father. He's 73 years old. This past September he was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Our family is spread across the country spanning three time zones and this blog is an attempt to create a place where we can all share information. Feel free to post updates from calls home to Ma or whatever related random thoughts you might feel like sharing.

Lots of Prayers

My church (and Eileen's, too) and many friends across the world are praying for our family now, that we'll all feel the peace and comfort that surpasses all understanding. Hang in there, everybody.

I don't have any news, but wanted to share a comment that Mom made when we talked Sunday night. She said she always used to tell Dad she planned to die first so she wouldn't have to live without him, but now it doesn't look like it will work out that way. But that no matter how hard it is to face the end of their time together, she still feels incredibly lucky to have had 52 years with the love of her life. I told her she should be proud that they skewed the hell out of the divorce statistics. That made her laugh, which is all I guess we can do for her right now. Maybe she can share some funnies with Dad when he's awake. Dad always likes a good joke, a reason to smile, an excuse to laugh. I hope we all find them, even now. It's what he would want for us.
