My Dad passed away at 9:55 Thursday evening.

We made the difficult, but necessary decision to have the ventilator shut off this morning.  We were all there for his last conscious moments.  He seemed at peace with what we were doing.  I even cried some, and that’s something I just don’t do….

I’m not up for any fancy tribute right now… just wanted to pass along the sad, but seemingly inevitable resolution to this three month long ordeal.

I will still be around….. will still be posting (and eventually reading)…. will still take my comfort and happiness in my routines as I always have.  Probably even work in a tribute or two along the way.  But right now, I just need to get some sleep.  Tomorrow’s gonna be another long day…

    LB – I’m very sorry to hear this about your dad. Much love to you and your family. I’m glad you were there with him.

  8. I have been there. You do what you need to do and take care of yourself. Much love from Garry and I to you.

  9. I am so sorry for your loss. I’ve been there and know what you’re going through. My Dad has been gone 30 years. I lost him when I was 28. My Mom died 12 years ago. Time helps, but I can still cry if I think too hard about it. Focus on the good memories. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
