My condolences go to you and your family. I know that you worked very hard to make your Father comfortable and not have to endure anything that could not help him.

My most sincere sympathies on your loss. You were a wonderful caregiver for him as he deteriorated, and few people know personally how difficult that is.

Carry strength from your love for him, and no doubt him for you. And know at least now he's no longer suffering, and his mind is young again.

I well remember the feeling in my home when my Mother passed. Empty and silent. Hard to bear. Being with family will help. Prayers for you and your loved ones.

Moiraine - take comfort in knowing that your dad was well cared for by you - he knew it in his heart and soul.

Take care and accept our sincere condolences. Remember the good times before he became ill and hold on to those memories.
