A peaceful passing.
This is not a question, just posting an update. My 92-year-old father-in-law passed away 12/13 at 12:13 p.m. Starting last Tuesday he fell asleep and couldn't be roused to eat or have a conversation. He stopped eating and had very very little water. My husband (an only child) and I were with him when he slipped into eternity. We're grateful there was no pain, no labored breathing. My husband started combing his hair and stroking his forehead, we saw him visibly relax and then he drew two short quick breaths and then he was gone. He had lived with us for a year (cancer and dementia) but in early September we placed him in a nursing home because 24-hour care was too difficult to us. We will never regret the decision to have him reside there. Thankfully it was less than a mile from our home. We saw him every evening and I went over on my lunch hour. It's very strange not to be there today.
