My dad passed away on 10/10/10, he was 72 and had leukemia which he fought valiantly for 3 years. Pneumonia finally took him from our presence. He never complained and thanked GOD every day for a day he was not promised. Dad left this world wanting to live, but assured of where he was heading if he did not. He held no grudges and was an inspiration to those remaining.
I miss my dad who was also my coworker and best friend. He showed me how i should live by the very process of his dying. I loved my dad and though i told him all the time, i still feel like i did not tell or show him enough. My wife and i cared for dad for the last 15 months of his life and it was an honor. I wish he were still here. I hope he finds all the love and compassion from God now that i wont be able to express any more to him.
