    He passed away today at about 4:25 EST. He was surrounded by love and we were all touching him. It was completely peaceful (just slowly stopped breathing).

    Just after we sang him Happy Birthday (about 30 of us), he started to let go.

    Thank you for your support. I’ll be back tomorrow.

    Still in shock but joyful that he’s resting,
    Carrie

    Aaaawww Carrie,

    I’m so sad, and I’m so sorry. It must have given your Dad tremendous comfort, having all of his loved ones by his side. His passing sounds truly peaceful.

    Thinking of you and your mom and family….

    Love,

    Jody ((hugs))

    Carrie,

    I’m sorry for your loss, but it’s comforting to know your Dad is at peace now, with no more worries about this horrible disease.

    Take care of yourself, and I’ll be thinking of you and your family in the days to come.

    Hi Carrie,

    My father was buried on his 89th birthday. God allowed him a full and satisfying life filled with enrichment for himself and those whose lives he touched.

    The knowledge of our physical separation was more than offset by the knowledge that he was celebrating the day in heaven.

    On August 26th I commemorated my brother’s first birthday since his sudden passing last November. Birthdays are thought provoking events, aren’t they. My prayers and condolences are w you and your family.

    Carrie:

    I am so so sorry. I don’t know what to say anymore to these things. This disease is just so awful. I pray for you and your family to find peace with it like he has. It is a tough road to be on but with the help of friends and family it will get better.

    Please let me know if there are any arrangements being made etc. And as always, I am here if you need me.
