Hi Longroad and welcome to the Online Community but so sorry to hear about your dad and as to the reason you are joining us.
I have some understanding of this as my father died (not from cancer) a number of year back and were living a 3 hrs run away from him so it was hard not to be with him in his last days. But the best help you could get is to talk with folks who have been in the same position as yourself so could I recommend our Bereaved Family and Friends Forum.
Just go over and hit the 'Start a Discussion' tab and introduce yourself, you could just copy and paste this post and I am sure that someone will be along to help out.
If you have a local Maggie's Centre go in as this is what they do.
Warm ((hugs)) from Inverness
