So very sorry, but his troubles are over. I went through my father dying of cancer. He fought it for 13 years. When he died I was tasked with putting the readings for his funeral mass. The gospel I chose was the story of Lazerus being raised from the dead. The last line was "Unbind him and set him free." He is free, halelujah!
Thank you all for your kind condolences. Thankfully it was peaceful. Just as if he had fallen asleep watching tv on the couch. One aspect of ALS that I guess is good considering. Peace to you all. Lisa
