Re: Passed away

I lost my mom in May. No matter how prepared you think you are for this eventuality, it still evokes many surprising emotions.

I'm glad his death was peaceful and his troubles on earth are at an end.

My condolences to you and the family.

Re: Passed away

My deep condolences, Nina. Your FIL sounded like someone I would have liked to have met. He seemed a truly interesting fellow, similarities in our professions notwithstanding. It is good that his transition was peaceful. My thoughts are with you and your family.

Just checked the boards, and discovered your posting. My sympathies to you and your husband, Nina. You've been extraordinary caregivers.

It's a blessing that his passing was peaceful. Hug.

Re: Passed away

Thanks everyone. Yes it was a surprise about the timing but I knew this year or this summer was not a good one for my FIL. I thought about the possibility this past week but he always pulled through before. Guess his heart had too much stress. The doctor has yet to write down the reason. It is both eating/weakness and heart issues.

Thanks,
Nina
