Your post about your Dad reminded me of mine, who passed away 11 years ago... We got a note from a neighbor who put it beautifully: "The world has lost quite a character..." I've never forgotten those words, which summed it up so perfectly.
Thank you to everyone for their thoughts and prayers. It has been hard on the family but knowing we kept all our promises to him and kept him at home has been one of the things that has been a comfort. We (my mother and all us kids) have talked and looking back we realize his ALS was much further advanced than the doctors or anyone realized.
Thank you and god bless you all again for all the support you provided just be being a part of this forum and being out there sharing.
