Dear Snowdog,
I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. Know that prayers are sent even before you have asked. For a science guy you are exercising your faith well. Know that why you may not hear God at this time His hand is at work in your life your mothers and in what is left of your fathers. While this is a hard pill to swallow, the bitterness of death will pass and know that when the time comes you will all be united again someday. Just be there for your mother and give her the support that is needed. Call Hospice and get them involved, they can help a lot in times like this not only in making your Dad comfortable as possible, but they are there for you and your Mom.
I have just been through this process with my adopted Mom she passed away on the 14th of this month. It was difficult to let her go and as her caregiver it was hard. One thing as I look back is the memories during her final journey that we shared. We laughed, we cried, we sang hymns, I read to her. If you need to talk know that we are hear to support you during this difficult time.

-- I don't make mistakes, I have great learning lessons, Greg
