Rick I'm sorry for your loss but there in a better place, my father passed at 2:00 PM this afternoon :cry2: :( but not to sound like a selfless person I'm glad Its over, the last 2 days were the worst and It was killing me to see him like that it wasn't him at all. His plan was to make it past Christmas and he did :) , we reconciled all the past things and said our good bye's a few days ago so were fine with It!!

Sorry for the loss of loved ones Rick & Keep, for some reason it always seems to be more common around this time of year, loss some myself but not real family. It just seems every year around Christmas we are heading back to Pittsburgh for a funeral, guess my turn will come but hopefully not too soon. :eek2:

Keepaeyeonit ,Sorry for your loss ,i understand exactly how you feel with the mix of sadness & relief . My father was killed in a farm accident in 1973,that was rough. My Father-in-law,my step-father,my mother & my step-father-in-law all lived their last days in suffering conditions we were glad to see come to an end.This yr with my wife dying suddenly was another shocker. :cry2:

I sure hope that 2017 is a yr of less grief . :(

Wow Barry. I'm sorry and glad to hear that your saga is over as well. I know what you mean when you say the last few days are the worst. It pains us all to see our loved ones in that conditions.

And imagine St. Peter welcoming 2 through the pearly gates that were heated with old black rocks......

And to all hose offering condolences, I and I'm sure Barry thank you as well. It really means a lot.
