    He suffered a stroke on Sunday and another severe one on Tuesday. He will be transferred to hospice care tomorrow. His organs are shutting down, his lungs are full of blood clots, and the Dr. said it will be either a matter of days or up to a couple weeks.
    I am asking that God takes him home soon as he is suffering and needs to go home. That is the prayer of my entire family.
    Please pray that if it's His will, my dad can be in heaven now..he's ready.

    thanks.

    I'm so sorry Kinder.

    When my dad was dying, that was the harest prayer I've ever had to make.

    I remember sitting next to Gram in the hospital, cuddling close and telling her it was ok to go, that we were ok, then praying that prayer. Hardest thing I have ever done. You are all in my prayers as you go through this.

    TY for the prayers. My dad went to be with his heavenly Father on July 25, 2010. A bald eagle came and sat in a tree outside the bedroom window at his house, and remained there for three hours that day. Despite the neighborhood coming out to see him and take pictures, he never left my dad's yard. Never before has an eagle landed in any of their trees or found anywhere near their home, until yesterday.They have lived in this house for over 50 years. God always shows us He is with us.
    But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall mount up with wings like eagles Isaiah 40:31

    He was a special man indeed. He will be buried with military honors on Friday, July 30th. He lived for 80 years, was married to my mom for 61 years, and was my dad for 44 years. He was my hero. He leaves behind his wife, seven children, and twenty grandchildren.

    KInder. So sorry for your loss. I just saw this today. Prayers for all of you as you go through this week. He sounds like a great man!!!

    The eagle thing was quite remarkable. It is "weird" what is sent to let us know our loved ones are ok. I had a turkey (wild one) that would show up every day for about a month after my gpa had passed. I always called him to tell him when there was wildlife, mostly turkeys in our yard. My cousin's little girl passed & it was the "pinkest" sunset I ever saw!!!

    Take Care of yourself!!! Hugs to you!!!

    May God comfort you and your family.

    Your verse from Isaiah is very fitting. I know God will be just as faithful to give to you the strength for this time and every day that follows. Continuing in prayer for you and your family.

    I just read this thread and was so very blessed by the eagle story. My dad passed when I was 12. He was my hero. I will pray for your family and I hope that as time passes, God's peace, which passes all understanding, will continue to comfort you. God bless your heart. ~ SMK
