    My dad died today after a brief illness. He was 88 and was a WWII and Korean War Navy veteran. He and my mom have been married for 67 years.

    My family and I were blessed by God and allowed to be with him when it happened. We were able to say goodbye, tell him we love him and pray for him as his heart slowed down and stopped. I loved him greatly and I don't think I'll ever be the same again.

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. You were blessed to have such a wonderful dad for so long. He had a good life and can see how you'll miss him so much.
