angelb Posted June 3, 2004 Share Posted June 3, 2004 Hello all.. Sorry I have not been on the board for a while. Just want to thank each and everyone of you for your thoughts and prayers and wonderful uplifting advise regarding my dad. Unfortunatly he is no longer with us. I went to GA on Friday the 21 upons my moms plea for support as my dad was admitted into the ICU. Pneumonia had taken hold of both lungs and the potent antibiotics were not working for him. He fought very hard, but my mom sat by his side and told him she would be alright and that it was ok for him to go and that she will meet him at the gates of heaven in the future, and he went..... Monday May 24 at 7:30 am. She was able to be with him in the end, and for that I am very grateful. Since then, we have cried a great deal, but we will heal. It comes and goes in waves. I miss him so much my heart hurts so. It hurts me more now knowing that my mom will have to face the big empty house now. She does not want to change anything just yet - I understand. It feels as though he will come through the door at any minute. We will be alright, all we will need is time and each other, even though we live 600 miles away we are bound even closer through this experience. Now, I think she needs to work out a routine, which in itself will be a challenge as he did quite a bit on his own. I just thank God that he answered our prayers in that he didnt suffer. He spent a fulfilling 62 years, 4 months and 24 days on this earth. We will miss him dearly. We already had a memorial service in GA, this Sunday we are having another at home (VA) and expect well over 250 people to attend as he touched many lives.. I am honored that he touched mine.
