Thanks for the candle Diana, and thank you all for your prayers.
It has gone from bad to worse, yesterday I got a call from my sister and they have found non hodgkins lymphoma (stage 4). They started chemo today, but I don't think his body is going to be able to take it.
I guess they are going to keep putting off the surgery to fix the abdominal aneurism, and from what I understand, at 7cm it could rupture at any time, and I've been told that is a very painful way to die. I just don't want to see my dad suffer anymore. He's 84 and has lived a wonderful life. I feel so blessed that he was always there for me, all these years. :littleheart:

Thank you all for the prayers, emails, texts and LOVE sent my way ~ :hearts2:
It was a long day, quite an emotional roller coaster, but I made it through.

His nurse said that she went into his room around noon, and he was trying to kneel down at the bed. She got him back in, and he passed. I believe he was praying for God to take him home. I am at peace knowing that he is at peace. :rose:

His last wishes were to not have a funeral or a wake, but to have a graveside service when all of our family can be there. I am so glad I got to see him last week and give him a big kiss and tell him how much I love him.

This was his favorite song, and I want to have it played while we all raise a glass and celebrate what a wonderful man, father, and friend he was to all that knew him. :airheart:

Thank you Angel

Yes, he was. He was full blooded Italian, and not a typical one at all. Never raised his voice, never raised a hand. Loved his family, and loved life. :inlove:

:hugs:
