I pretty much don't post much here anymore but wanted to give everyone who is still here an update. Last Sunday I got a call from my sister that Dad was in the hospital and they didn't think he had more than 24 hours left. We dropped everything and made the long drive to Las Vegas in hopes of seeing him before he passed. Dad has COPD and asbestosis and when we arrived he was on a full respirator and heavily sedated. He lingered for two days until the doctors decided he was not ever be able to breathe on his own without full assistance. Dad and the family made the decision months ago that if that was ever the case, to remove all life support and let him go. On Wednesday morning this was done and by mid-afternoon he had passed. We all knew this was going to happen, but when the moment comes a son can never be fully prepared to see his father gone.
