Peacefully with all (most) his kids around his bed. He actually opened his eyes for about 5 minutes--- he started to tear up and smiled at us...he took about 5 -6 breaths and then was gone. I could not believe how peaceful it was.
I miss him terribly as the he was in palliative care the last 3 months and I was there a lot...as much as I could with two small kiddos and a full time job ... oh and a hubby too.
and a public Christmas Apology to Mumof2
she was my partner in the ornament exchange last year and with everything going on with my dad well I just didn't send it. I found it a few weeks ago and finally mailed it today.. I hope she can forgive me and that I am welcome here again.
Please accept my deepest condolances. I pray for you and your family. Sounds like he was a lucky man to have such a loving family.
Well it is understandable about the ornament exchange. I am sure you will be forgiven afterall we are committed to the tru spirit of christmas here and that includes forgiveness ..........
Glad to have you back on the forums.
