A new update Monday afternoon:

He has had periods of lucidity. But the doc has finally put him on end of life care, so now it's just a matter of time. My emotions are toast, but we have been able to let him know it's ok to go to the other side anytime. Now all we can do i make him comfortable until he passes.

Thank you again for all the words of encouragement and concern.

Kevin

Hey Kevin,

Thanks for trusting us for comfort at a difficult time.

I'll ask the same in the future, and stay strong bro.

This was playing on my Pandora while I was typing....

The sitting and watching and waiting part is very hard. You just deal with that part your own way.

What an amazing character my dad has. He is so unexpected. More that 24 hours of unresponsiveness only to wake up and carry on delightful conversations with his kids and grandkids. When he is with us his mind is really there. It is making it hard to say goodbye, even to just go home until tomorrow. Still wanting to be there.

As someone who didn't make it home on time for a loved one appreciate that you did. I know that is not a comfort at this time but it will be as time goes by. Much second guessing here about what one could have done different and even when the answer is "nothing really" you just end up wishing you could have been there. So while it sucks to lose a loved one there is value in being able to say goodbye in person

Indeed. In fact, that saying. "A life well lived" is going on his memorial stone.

Cheers to your Pop, Jazz. Yours too, 'Storian. And everybody else who's lost their Dad. My Dad's the most important person in my life and I think probably too frequently about losing him, so these situations really hit me.

Thank you so much to everyone for you well wishes. Life can be brutal at times. But I am truly rejoicing with him now.

I'm so happy that you were able to say goodbye to him Jazz. I went through this last year with my Mom and let me tell you, being able to say goodbye made the whole process much easier to handle. Godspeed Mr. Knight.

Our hearts go with you and your family Jazz. I had a last talk with my Dad just before he died. I say talk because we talked about so many things before we said goodbye.

Peace and Love Brother. What a gift to say goodbye like you did. As Jimi Hendrix once wrote...

"The story of life is but a wink of an eye. The story of love is hello and goodbye, until we meet again."
