My stepfather was 72 and just passed away from pancreotic cancer. He asked of my mother ,knowing he will die soon to let him pass naturally and with
hospice at their home. My mother and I took turns every 2 hours giving him morphine orally from a dropper ,we had to increase the dose and begin
giving every hour ,so much pain he had to endore. From the time he was diagnosed the cancer was already level 4 ,so his passing was very quick.
This was my step dad and we weren't too close , so when mom and dad pass its going to be so hard.
My consolence to you is to just realize something that Ive began to notice the older I get. This life we have here , I truely beleive is just a speck,
of the unfathomable beauty of what we have waiting for us .
Why on earth would the creator of this world (and there has to be one ,how could there not ) design everything so perfectly balanced , calculated ,and
beutful ( including a person that can live 90+ years) and not have such a grand purpose for a human life .
Just because the flesh passes means nothing . I beleive the reason its soo hard for most people(including myself) to trust in the fact our soul and
spirt lifes on is because God ,with his purpose in mind , only allowed for us to see what He wanted. I desperately want to know all of our purpose
here, but that miracle is second to our birth,,our death from this place.
He made us pretty awsome so He's got a million times awsome just waiting for us.
Im a Christian and the hardest thing is truely trusting in faith. But again Gods bigger than anything that can be comprehended , so isn't it ironic
that he reveals himself to us with such a natural human emotion as faith.
