Well, as of last Tuesday, the journey is over. My father-in-law, "Dad", passed away.  He was placed in hospice and from there, he rapidly declined. He was a wonderful man prior to dementia. He was a wonderful man with dementia. I loved him fiercely with this horrific disease because I knew this disease did not define him.  We have memories of things we did and where we went. I will never forget him. I am grateful and thankful for the privilege of caring for this wonderful human being. Rest in peace, Dad.

My dad passed away last Saturday. He lived a good life, and deserved a better ending. 

Let us raise a glass to both yours and mine.

I am so very sorry for both of your loss Cessna and Pidgeon. You said it very well Cessna, this dreadful disease did not define him and yes, Pidgeon your Dad did deserve a better ending. Such a sad, sad, unfair, devastating disease. I pray you both hold tight to those precious memories that this disease can not take away of your father-in-law and your dad.  Take care of yourself now!

Sorry for your loss Cessna and Pidgeon. Cessna, you speak of your FIL so lovingly is touches my heart. No doubt, he appreciated his daughter in law. May the love and good times you had with your loved one always remain in your heart.

My condolences on the passing of your loved ones, CessnaDM and pidgeon92. I know it was difficult to see these fine people taken down by dementia, but you were there to help them in their time of greatest needs and for that I respect you and wish that life will be good to you both from here on out. Take care!

Cessna and Pidgeon, sorry to hear of your losses. Dementia, Alz, VD or old age, it still hurts.  May your coming weeks be easy for you both.

Cessna & Pidgeon I am so very sorry to hear of your Father's passings.  May you take comfort in knowing you kept them comfortable in the worst of times. There's a special place in Heaven for your fathers and you will see them again.  God Bless you both.

Oh Cessna, I lost my mom the same day you lost your FIL. I send you AND Pidgeon my deepest condolences. I still catch fire with grief each day and yet I take comfort in the connections across our human community. I reach through virtual space for your hand and Pidgeon's. Wishing you both love, peace, strength.
