    Prayers and condolences. As a caregiver for both my parents in their late 80s I can feel your loss.

    My dad also was a WWII (Army) vet -- at age 96 he, too, recently passed. He underwent cataract removal surgery, and took a nap next morn, from which he never woke up. Mom -- his wife of 76 years -- passed a couple of years earlier, and from the day of her passing he so wished to again be with her.
    I am ever so sorry for your loss -- wished to share "you're not alone" -- and, that you and your wife are, indeed, in our prayers.

    I lost my WW II vet Dad too. Still miss him but time will fill your heart with others. Cherish the memories. You will never regret the care you gave him.

    Prayers that the memories of your father's illness fade and the memories of him being vibrant and healthy fill in quickly. I am truly sorry for the emptiness you are feeling right now.

    I have also been a caregiver for an elderly man, and I know how wrenching it is to lose someone. God will bring you peace, and restore your joy. The time that you had together has been a great gift. You are in my prayers.

    First I am sorry for your loss......a father is special and to take care of him for 3 years makes the bond only that more strong....

    Father, please be with Tom and Lori as they deal with the loss of Tom's father. Allow them to dwell on the good times they shared and this will allow their memories to become even more important. AMEN

    Prayers and thoughts sent. Lost mine 34 years ago, also a WW2 vet. I truly thank all vets still here and those who passed.
