Thank you for your prayers.
Dad died peacefully this a.m. at approximately 9:45 a.m. We had just stepped out of the room for about 3 minutes and when we returned he had stopped breathing. It has been a long haul...lots of suffering. It is a relief. The health staff had expected him to go long before now. They had quit giving him anything by mouth on Tuesday morning because he often aspirated. Dad was given comfort measures. He received another Last Sacrament of the Sick on Thursday. He has been pretty blessed to receive so many prayers as well.
Thank you all again. May God bless you abundantly for your generosity.
Praying for the repose of his soul and comfort for all who love him.
