    My dad has been fighting breathing issues for several years now and was started on hospice last Monday, I got the call at 6:30 that he had joined his brothers and parents around 3 am. I am not on here announcing this looking for any sympathy, but I feel like this is like an extended family, I spend a lot of time on here and through the keyboard have gotten to know several of you. I am hoping getting this out and off my shoulders I will feel better. Dad, you can now breathe again.

    Sorry for your loss, good to hear, though, he was able to pass comfortably and without anxiety under the care of hospice.

    thoughts and prayers...

    Very sorry for your loss... Having lost my father just shy of 2 years ago I can promise you that the hurt and pain from this loss will eventually begin to turn into fond memories.

    My sympathies. Death sucks, but there is something to be said for a person you care about who has been suffering who suffers no longer.

    This is the way I thought when my Dad passed away. I know it's a sad time, but when you can think about how someone struggles for so long with an ailment, it can bring a smile to your face to know they are no longer hurting. You will always keep him in your thoughts. Always focus on the happy ones.

    Thoughts and prayers for you and your family.

    It's bittersweet when we grieve the loss of a loved one, yet feel relieved knowing the loved one is no longer suffering.

    Time will heal your pain, just remember the good and happy moments of your life together.

    My Dad has been gone for 24 years now, and I still think of him everyday.
