Topic tags/keywords: question

I wish we still had the Coffee Lounge here because I can’t find an appropriate spot for my request.

After battling three types of Cancer over the past couple years , my Dad is finally losing the fight.
He is no longer strong enough to have any more Chemo treatments : (
The saddest part is that at 80 years of age , his mind and memory are both still at 100% and he knows that the end is near.He’s not ready to go…He was still cutting and splitting his own firewood just two short years ago when the first form of cancer struck him.
I am asking for your prayers that when his time comes , that he may go peacefully and without any pain to join my Mom up in Heaven : )
Thank you
Len
