As I'm sitting next to him, I know he doesn't always see me or recognize me, but that's ok. My sisters and I are still taking care of him just as he has our entire lives. I am so thankful that every time I look at any of my three sons, I see a little bit of my dad in each of them. Tony has his blue eyes; Derek his crooked smile; and Kevin has his large head.
It's hard seeing him this way as he has always been the strong man in our lives, but we have so many memories that will never be erased. Dad is ready to go home, and my sisters and I have to be ready to let him go. My heart is breaking...
My dad passed away on Tuesday, February 5th. It was a blessing to be at his side when he took his last breath. It was peaceful and calm but still very heartbreaking and sad. Rest In Peace Dad!
