I wish to thank everyone for the prayers and well-wishes as my father makes his journey through hospice. He is mostly pain-free and while he would like more time, as any of us would, he is in good spirits and in peace with his journey. If how to die well is the last lesson the dying give the living, then Dad is providing a heck of a final lecture.
My Mom is doing as well as can be expected and is taking great care of Dad. For all of us who are married, their love story continues and continues be an inspiration. We are very lucky to have both of them as parents.
If you get the chance, a message to Mom on Facebook, or if you know her, a phone call or email would be very welcomed I am sure.
I will keep everyone updated as Dad walks his journey, and I’m sure all of you will understand if we don’t get back to you right away, but we will as time allows.
