Angie Posted October 16, 2004 Share Posted October 16, 2004 This morning at 8:35 my Dad passed away. My Mom was fortunate enough to be there during his last breath. My sister was stopping by to visit and help my Mom and arrived within a minute (or less) of his passing. I'm also so thankful she was there for my Mom. Today has just been a whirlwind, as you can imagine. We have so many wonderful friends and family stopping by with food and offering us comfort. My Dad hasn't been himself for a good six weeks, since the cancer has spread to the brain. He didn't know us often, but I knew he felt our love. I'm so thankful that we were able to take care of him at home. He didn't have any pain because of where the cancer was at in the brain - a true blessing! This site has been such a wonderful source of information and support these past 17 months. THANK YOU!! There is so much more I want to say but I'm exhausted, so I'm sure I'll be posting more later....probably in the "Grieving" section!!!!
