I actually watched my father closely for the last 3 minutes of his life. I watched each breath, the hesitation breaths, the flutter and failure of all the systems. Bodies wear out. They get eaten up by cancers. They become liabilities. I am so glad he is released from that old, worn out body trap. I still hope one day to become cause of having or not having a body at will, and not being the unwanted effect of one. Thanks all of you for your condolences, white healing magic, good wishes. Allan is a happier being tonight. Mike
You know the truth and so does your dad and, although your relationship will now be different, may it utlimately become an even better one.
I recall how hard it was to "lose" my dad a few years ago, although he was not really gone and I had certainty on that. We still have a relationship - and that will never change. And, so will you with your dad.
It is harder for those left behind, because we have the loss of the relationship as we knew it and are still here, with a lack of a terminal.
You've been a wonderful son, and your dad is very lucky to have your support.
I wish you peace, my friend, and best wishes to you and your dad, as well.
