Hello everyone, It is with great sorrow that I must tell you that my father has passed away. As most of you know we lost our mother three short month ago. It was shortly after my mothers passing that we learned my father was keeping a secret. We learned that he was terminally ill. He didn't tell anyone, not even my mother knew. It was only when the pain became unbearable and he was rushed to the hospital several weeks ago that we learned just how sick he was. Hospice workers helped us manage his pain and care for him, and someone from the family was always with him. Thankfully his last weeks were mostly pain free. He was comatose the last week of his life and quietly slipped away Monday. I'ts so hard to believe that we lost our brother, then mom and now our father in less than seven months time. We are all hanging in there but its really tough. I'll be away from the blog for a while.
