Jake, truly sorry to read those words but very happy your dad was able to leave this world from his own home on some of his own terms.

Jake, your father may be gone, but certainly will not be forgotten...he sounds as though he was a very special person and has passed those traits on to you.

My condolences and hope this brings you new strength and determination.

Sincerest condolences to Jake and the family. That was a warm, wonderful memory and tribute to your father. Thanks you for sharing it.

Harry and your family will be in our prayers, too.

Your dad may be gone, but his memories will be with you forever.

He will be looking down and watching over your shoulder with pride and a smile.

My dad loved to work on cars. When he passed away, the neighbor's 4 yr old kept asking where he was. Her mom said he was in Heaven. When she finally realized what that meant, she asked, "is he working on God's cars?" That was the most healing thing anyone said. From the mouth of a 4 yr old.

I am sorry to hear about your loss Jake. Even though I don't know you personally, I feel like I do after reading all your posts on this site!!! Your honesty, enthusiasm and character come out strong in your statements here.

My father also has heart issues and has been restling with them for over 10yrs so I know what you must have had to go through.

But, if I could sit here at this keyboard right now and know 100% that I would live to be nearly 80 and go peacefully in my sleep like that, I'd sign on the dotted line right now!

Take care man...you are in our prayers! Jon
