I totally understand (I've always felt the same way), so yes, what Marc said are my sentiments also.

pshrynk, i think marc said it best. like ladyblue, just know that we're all standing here very close to you and we'll keep up the idle chatter or whatever else you need. one of my candles is for you.

I am so glad that I can acknowledge that my third candle was for pshrynk and so sorry at the same time. Along with the candle, I'm sending a virtual hug. God Bless.

For my brother

For carld's mother

And for hope for pshrink's father



Thanks you Patricia, for starting this thread. I dunno how I missed it before.

And for you, carld, my deepest sympathies for your loss. May you find the strength in those around you, and give your strength to the same.

And for you Pshrink. I give pray and hope that your father will pull through. The fact that he is breathing on his own is heartening news. Never give up hope.

I light a candle and shed a tear for Aaron, for Carld's mother, for Pshrynk's father, and for every friend that seeks comfort and dares not to ask. My arms are open and my heart is filled with love for you.

Ricky, My dad is dying. I've spent the week at the hospital, working with the doctors to get them to remove the ET that they put in when he crashed during his endoscopy. He has been hell on wheels against "pipes and tubes" since he first learned about them when I was in Jr Hi. They took him off the respirator this afternoon and he's breathing on his own now, but slipping away. I tend not to talk to people about this, and have posted mere hints at it in other threads. I really try not to seek out sympathy, as I am quite uncomfortable in being on the receiving end of it...
Understood.

I was really looking forward to meeting you in Montréal next weekend but we'll do it some other time. Take good care of your dad... the best you can offer him is your presence.

Well, Dad died yesterday morning at 3:20. I woke up at 3:15, as did Mom, my wife, two of my brothers, and a sister in law. We are going back to Iowa tomorrow for the memorial on Monday. Actually, the entire family ganged up on me to not cancel my trip to Montreal, so I'll be going.
