    Please keep my family in your thoughts during this difficult time...I will be gone again...have to go across country once more for his funeral...here is a pic ...the LAST pic I took of my father....it was during his recovery from open heart surgery...just a little background...for about 5 years nowhe has been battling kindney failure and liver failure..he has been on dialysis but it wasnt working, he developed an infection which traveled to his heart and damaged his aoritic valve, so he had surgery 1.5 weeks ago to have an artificial valve put in...we were hoping it would give him more time....I guess it didnt...in any case....here is my tribute to him.....

    Thank you...I spoke to my stepmom and my brother, apparently he died in his sleep, he closed his eyes to rest and his heart just stopped beating, they say he went peacefully, Im thankful for that. My stepmom thinks that he hung on for me...so he can see me one last time, he told her in the hospital today that he was ready to go...it takes a lot to know when you are ready.

    I'm sure that no words, however kind, can lighten the sadness in your heart over so great a loss, but may it somehow comfort you to know that
    many thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
    May your memories of happy times with your father comfort you and help to bring you peace.
