    Bad news about my dad: PICTURE ADDED in post n17!!

    Last Saturday my dad died;
    he would have been 95 in January...!
    We knew he was old and that he would leave us one day;
    but it was still a shock to actually get that telephone call from the hospital where he was since October.....
    It happened only 1 and half an our after our visit to him....! I could hardly believe it...

    Rest in peace daddy ....!

    I am so sorry, Lut. My deepest sympathy to you and your family and all who love him and grieve him and will miss him so much.

    Almost 95 years, what a good long life! May your wonderful memories and keepsakes help to comfort you.

    Our condolences, Lut, even at that advanced age, it is still a shock. You and your family will be in our prayers.

    Thanks!!
    I forgot to say what made dad so special and loved!
    My mom had multiple sclerosis in a high degree. My dad took so much and so very good care
    of her, so she could stay at home with him instead of a hospital! He did EVERYTHING for her, he did everything in their household, wassing, cooking,
    cleaning, feeding mom, etc...; She got 85 years old, which is very unusual for an ms-patient!! She died almost 9 years ago. Since then he lived on his
    own, untill he got a brain infarct in October this year... . From that day on he was in hospital, because he couldn't use his right arm, his speech was really
    bad too, and he couldn't stand on his feet anymore....
    Dad was such a wonderful person

    I am so sorry for your loss.
    It sounds like he waited until after your visit.
    He and your mother are together again.
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    What a strong, unselfish man your dad was. I am so sorry you lost him but how wonderful that you had a visit with him.

    I hope memories will comfort you and bring a smile in the times to come.

    You are a wonderful daughter, and your husband a wonderful son-in-law. HUGS.
