I feel for you onequestion. In January, my wife and I were faced with the fact that her father would not be long for this world. We watched as he
endured treatments for his desease, and it was hard to see. He knew he was no going to live much longer. In one of my last conversations with him,
he explained that he was tired and was ready for nature to take its course. He was not afraid, but was ready. After being constantly in pain, woken
in the middle of the night for labs and more meds, he had enough. He was fortunately able to still communicate his final wish to go into hospice. He
was a tough guy, a cop for 26 years, and greatly loved his grandkids. When he was moved to hospice, and was made comfortable, the man I knew
returned. It was this comfort which helped all of us. It was his choice to go to hospice. It was for the better. He lasted several days, but they
were quality days. In the early morning of January 8th, he slipped into enternity, calm and peaceful, without pain. We sorely miss him, life has not
been the same without him. But, he passed in comfort with dignity.
It is a heartbreaking descision, but one must ask oneself, "What would I want if I was in their shoes?" I firmly believe in live after death. I
look forward to see all of my love ones when my time comes. I wish both you and your grandmother peace.
