    Patti, we'll still keep you in our prayers.
  • I am sorry Patty. It is never easy to loose a loved one. Knowing the end is near may help a little rather than a sudden onset but it is no less of a loss. Our deepest condolences.

    Patti, I am new here, but I just wanted to say how sorry I am about your dad. Mine has been gone for 20 years now so I know what you are going through. He was only 69 years old and it was the hardest thing I've ever had to face.

    Even though it is painful now, and you will always miss him, know that the pain does eventually subside and you will be left with many loving memories. Thankfully, my Mom is still with us, at 93 now. We both still think of him often.

    Words from a stranger, I know, but I hope somehow comforting.

    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!
