Paul, I lost my Dad in 1989 when he wouldn't stop bleeding during
surgery, so I understand your concern and pain. 

As for the blessings though, consider two things. First, that your Dad
was freed for several years from cancer, giving him more time.  Second,
not all priesthood blessings are given by the Spirit (unfortunately). 
Third, even when given by the Spirit, we may not fully understand what
was said, especially if we weren't there to actually here the promises
and blessings.  Fourth, when your Dad goes safely home to God, he will be
freed of cancer forever; and will prepare a place for you and your

That's what comforts me when I hit times in my life when I could use
Dad's advice. I just remind myself that he's busy at work, preparing a
place for me and my family.
K'aya K'ama,

Paul: I reason to my self that God never
did rid him of cancer as was promised by blessings, faith, temple alters,
and all that. I just don't get it.
