My Dad passed away last Sunday. As a lot of you know, he stopped breathing last week. The paramedics were able to revive him, but he never came back to us. He was on life support for almost 6 days, and when we were told there was nothing else they could do for him, we took him off of it and let him go. It was the hardest decision my family has ever had to make. I held his hand while he left us.
I want to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers over these last two weeks. Your comments, emails, tweets and Facebook messages meant a lot to me. I apologize for not posting an update sooner, but I just couldn't find the words. In fact, I still can't.
I miss my Dad so much. My heart hurts, and there is a hole in it that will remain there forever. The sadness and grief I feel is unbearable. I can't believe that I will never be able to talk to him again. He left us too early. I'm sad for my children who will not get to grow up with their Papa. I won't say that he is in a better place, because I believe that there is no better place than here with his family, but he is no longer suffering in pain.
His funeral is this Saturday. I will be back next week. Thank you all again for all of your support through this horrible time.
