    My dad passed today.

    My dad, a WWII vet, that has lived with us, since 2006, passed away this morning. My wife and I have been his caregivers, 24/7, for the last 3 years, and we have a spot in our hearts, missing this evening. Just wanted to share. Tom

    Prayers for your family.

    Thank you all. We prepare for this, we talk about it, but even at 95 years old, I wasn't ready for this. He is no longer in pain, which is a blessing. On Sat. night, while I was sitting with him, me in the chair, and him , in his hospital bed, that we had moved into the living room, he called me over, out of a sleep, and told me he was going home. I told him that he was at home, thinking he was again confused, on where he was at. He wasn't confused, as I know now, he was telling me his final goodbye. His tour of duty was done. My wife, and my children, and I, no regrets, our goodbyes and prayers were spoke, many times, but still, the last one still, really hurts. Thank you all, for the prayers and kind words, and I pray for anyone going through this also.

    Very sorry for your loss Tom. It sounds like he was ready and is now at peace. My dad of 85 left us last fall. You and your family will be okay and he’ll always be with you and I’m sure never forgotten. -Brad

    My Sincere Sympathies.
    I understand Your Pain. I lost My Dad 31yrs ago last month. He was also a WWII Vet.
    I miss him everyday. I saw so little of him after I came home from the Service. He's 2nd wife kept him from US. He went quick. She didn't allow him to be buried in the National Cemetery in Los Angeles. Along side His Father and Second Son.
    Very Painfull.
    I HATE auto-correct

    My Experience and My Opinion, are just that, Mine.

    Grief is never the same for each of us. One can rationalize until they are turningg blue but until you are “there” you do not know how the sadness will unfold.
