My Dad passed away very peacefully at about 1 am (PST) this morning. I too am very much at peace. While I wasn't there, I suspected and said my goodbyes before I left him last night. Now there are the details to attend to but I feel strong. This is not to say I am not grieving - I just know he is no longer in pain and I did what I could to help him.

Thanks everyone for your prayers, thoughts, support, encouragement, hugs, love. I still need it all.

May he rest in peace! I am glad you were able to be there for him Laurie. As hard as this is, you seem to be in as good a place as can be expected right now. Continue to stay strong and know you have tremendous support surrounding you.

You have been a very strong woman and daughter and I know he is very appreciative of your strength.

Laurie, you were the very best daughter that any aging parent could ask for. Your father is now in God's arms and at peace. Remember to turn to your sister for support as she needs you right now. And know that we are here for you. We all love you.

(((hugs Laurie)))

At the memorial for my mother, the Unitarian minister said, among many things, "We are not relieved that Elisabeth died. We are relieved that she stopped dying."

Remember to take care of yourself.

((((((((((Laurie)))))))))))) Right now you feel love of setting him free from dying. What a profound quote from that minister, TL.

Sadly, you've now joined the club of adult orphans, and when it sets in, it's truly a jolting revelation. It's good that you have your sister to share that sorrow with.

Praying for your peace in the days ahead ((((((Laurie)))))))).

I am praying for you sweetie. You are amazingly strong, but you have One even stronger to hold you up as you go through all of this, so rely on Him. I will be gone all day, but any time you want to talk, if I am here, you can talk my "ears" off.

I just let James know, and he said that he is very sorry. We both love you very much.
