My dad has passed on.
Posted by: anonymouse1
Date: December 03, 2019 03:03PM
Folks-

My father just transitioned, age 94. My wife, our daughter, and I were with him in his hospital room. He passed on peacefully, after a period of declining health. All of us, including my two sisters, had the chance to say goodby to him, and him to us. Nothing left unsaid.

I would be grateful for your prayers and good thoughts for his peaceful loving transition to the next phase of his journey, and for anything else your heart prompts.

Thinking of you and your family. Even at 94 it's still hard and a great loss. He's still with you.

My condolences.

Sorry to hear he's gone, but a peaceful passage is something we all pretty much hope for when our time is due.

So sorry for your loss, and while it's terribly sad, I'm glad his passing was peaceful. I remember having two wishes for my mom while she was alive: 1) that she'd live forever -- healthy, of course, and 2) that her passing would be calm and dignified. I didn't get my first choice but I did get the second. Sending you and your family all good thoughts at this difficult time.

We should all be so lucky as to have those opportunities when the time comes, to be surrounded by family and transition in the comfort of love, even though we'd like to keep the event at bay for as long as possible. Condolences from my entire family.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones. My dad passed away 18 years ago at the age of 66. Although he taught me a lot, I felt I still had a lot to learn from him. My wife's dad passed away just over a year ago. It is a blessing that nothing was left unsaid. Many cannot say the same unfortunately.

Thanks for sharing. It helps others going through similar situations, because we know that we're not alone. My father passed several years ago, but now my mother seems to be nearing a final stage. She's 95. Stress for me is that I live overseas, so difficult to stay in touch sometimes. Fortunately, had a wonderful time with her last summer knowing that it might be one of the last times together.

Praying for you and your family!

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My father passed away at 84 in 1993, I still think about him.

Cherish your memories, they will help you in the coming days.

My condolences as well. I'm glad that you and your family were able to be there as he passed on. I was fortunate to be there when both my mother and my father died. Being there makes the process complete and, for me calming, knowing that they knew that their only child kept them company as they transitioned. Your dad will always be with you, in your thoughts and memories.
