My Dad passed away yesterday at 3:02 a.m. He was confined to a hospital bed since Tuesday and we were taking turns staying with my mom to help give medications and be by his side. Saturday night the hospice nurse told us it would only be hours. We called Stewart and Matthew (the only two not there at the moment) and they came to join us. We attended to him and spent the time visiting till almost 3:00. Then April and Matthew headed home and we settled down for the night. Richard was by his side. Stewart hadn't heard him breath for a while and came in to check on him. He gave one last breath and he was gone. We were all together and he had struggled so hard to the end. He will be missed and was loved by so many. Love you, Dad.
