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 family. 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, Gerald/gary Smith gszion1 @juno.com http://www .geocities.com/rameumptom/index.html "No one is as hopelessly enslaved as the person who thinks he's free." - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe 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. ________________________________________________________________ Sign Up for Juno Platinum Internet Access Today Only $9.95 per month!
