    Sorry for your loss, we all know how you feel as most of us have or will be in your position.
    Just an observation.
    I contribute occasionally to this forum, but read the forum every day.
    This is one of the biggest responses I have seen on this forum.
    I'm so proud to be apart of this family of like minded folks who share a common interest, but who show their made of some pretty good stuff when people need help or a kind word would provide needed comfort.
    But for the grace of God go I.

    I was deeply saddened to hear of your fathers' death. I have been following many of your posts and felt that I was with you thru some of his decline. I am sorry you have to be there alone to go through this. I also feel an empathy for you with my own father as he approaches 79 years old and I watch as he slows and declines, as do I too.

    I hope that you will accept my most sincere sympathy and condolence. I truly hope that your memories of the happier moments will help ease your pain.. I will say another prayer for you and for your father.

    Best Wishes,
  • We are sorry for your lose Patti, there is a time that we all go, are prayers are with you

    We are very sorry that your Dad is no longer with you. Your devotion to his needs and your loving care is truly an inspiration to us all. Please take comfort in knowing you made his exit from this life an expression of your love for him. He knows it.

    And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God;
    I myself will see him with my own eyes—I, and not another.
    How my heart yearns within me!

    Just now catching up from the weekend. I haven't read all the other posts, but I just wanted to say that even though the finality of his passing is so hard to accept, the time you gave to him during those last few weeks will stay with you (and him) forever. You are a very special person and will reap rewards in Heaven!

    God Bless,
