.....In a small town where everybody knew his name.
He has 5 daughters....that grew up knowing that he would "always be there for us".
I wanted to stay with Dad last week....so he would not be alone during these difficult days and be there for him....which lead to me having many priceless moments and memories.
He would tell me things like...."I was laying in bed trying to figure out how could I get Kim to stay another night"....as a parent....I know how happy he was to have his kids around.
Since I have to rest....I came home after he became bedridden Saturday....and he is sleeping all the time now.
Hospice tells us that Dad is coming to the end of his journey with COPD.
