Topic: Dad is now at peace

My wonderful Dad, my hero, my everything passed away peacefully this morning at 2.45am in the arms of my Mom and I. 

Thank you for all your support and prayers.  Dad fought right up to the end but God heard our prayers and took him to a better place, as much as we wanted him to stay, enough was enough.  I'm so thankful he never suffered any pain and his passing was peaceful.

God bless and once again a very big thank you to my cc family.

Dear Andrea and mom

I first contacted you at the start of your journey and hoped and prayed so often for you all that this day would never come.

You have been such a marvellous daughter to your parents and given all of the support that anyone could give.

He didnt suffer pain and passed peacefully, we can only hope that we all have the same care and attention from our families.
You gave such a precious gift that not everyone is able or willing to give so unstintingly.

The pain you all feel is unbearable.
You know in your heart this is the place where we all understand and will be here for you always.

Please God take care of Andrea and her family.
love and light Alans mom

My Mom lost her one year battle with CC on April 3, 2009.

"A prognosis is simply an audit of how truly precious each day is.  Live each day to the maximum, celebrate what was, and what is - Don't spend your life looking forward to what will or might be." .... words of wisdom from my beloved son on hearing of his grandmother's CC prognosis.

Re: Dad is now at peace

Andie,

My heart goes out to you and your family right now. Be together, love each other, cherish the happy memories. My dad's been gone just over a week now and I know how difficult it is to deal with.

I love you, Daddy.
