Sad news for real...
« on: October 21, 2022, 01:20:44 AM »
Dad pretty much "gave up" last Dec. when Carolyn died. For a couple months he came out on the weekend for lunch but then he just "didn't feel like it" one weekend. That was it.  He started to barely eat. About the first of Aug. he started down hill fast. The last 5 or so weeks he was "gone". The last 2-3 he would barely eat, then it was sleeping all the time. The last 2 weeks he needed care 24/7, more than we could do. Prior to that we managed pretty well never leaving him for longer than it took to run errands and stuff.  So my brothers and I hired a service for in home care and we made sure there was someone there 24/7, them, us, or usually both.

He passed away with us by his side Sunday night about 7:30.

Sorry for your loss. My thought and prayers are with you and the family.

Great to see, that you and the family were there for him when he did not feel to well and that he was able to be with family continues toward the end of his life.

So sorry Ed, I know it was hard to let him go.  He was a good man for sure.

Thanks so much guys. It was rough watching him go from the Dad I knew to  a child so rapidly. He just gave up and I will miss him.
