We’ll pray for you so you can go and spend as much time with your Dad and Mom as you can before his time runs out. My mom died back in March and I was lucky enough to take an unscheduled 1 week vacation the week before she died to go see her. Yes she was sick but she had been sick for a while but at the last minute my family and my brothers family decided to show up for a surprise visit. I don’t know why becasue I was supposed to go visit her that summer. I had no vacation time left but I went anyway. I just felt I had to go. A week later just a few hours before we were all supposed to leave to go home she suffered a massive stroke. We spent 3 days in the hospital with her before she finally passed. It was the first time our whole family was together in a long time. It was a hard time but considering the circumstances it could not have turned out better. She did not die alone. She was 64, way too young.

My advice is to remember to good times and shed a few tears of joy when you do.

God bless.
