Thanks. My dad died, at home, last year on August 2nd. He had family around him, and although my brother and I were breaking traffic laws to get
there (having received a phone call from bro's wife that Daddy was unresponsive), we missed the actual moment.
Nevertheless, I was there for him often and regularly during the last few years of his suffering. And earlier in the day that he did pass on, he
asked me to bring him the book of National Parks (coffee table book, lots of pics), and of course I did so.
Even earlier that day, I was there, and simply sat on the bed with him and held his hand while I was reading.....I fed him cantalope, I asked him to
please let me know where he was in the event that I was not there at his arrival, and to let me know that he was okay.
Anyhoo, I don't want to usurp Ben's story, but I do thank you for posting this. Those of us who are mothers and daughters can find great comfort in
