It hasn't altered my thoughts about death, at least not in a way I can pinpoint yet, but it has certainly made death more "real" to me. I'm 32 years old and have been fortunate to have lived a life relatively un-touched by death. My other grandfather passed away a few years back (also from cancer), but other than that I've never lost a friend or family member, ever.
As a Christian I believe that death is just a stage of moving on, not a final stage.
