    Prayers needed

    OSO bros and sisters, a special request here for your thoughts and prayers. My dad passed away at 6:45 yesterday morning and it is definitely much tougher than I thought it would be. It wasn't a surprise as he was 87 and had a lengthy battle with congestive heart failure, however, it is still not an easy pill to swallow. While we didn't have much in common due to our extreme age difference (43 years), he did have a huge influence on the way I live my life and how I treat others. A devout Catholic, he really lived life according to the Golden Rule.

    Being born in 1921, this is a man that has seen many things in his lifetime. An honorably discharged WWII vet, he leaves behind an 81 year-old wife of 64 years who is a stroke victim with partial paralysis and is in the beginning stages of Alzheimer's. Helping my Mother cope with all of this has been the hardest part of it all. She has no idea where to go from here. They have been joined at the hip since he was 23 and she was 16. This will be a very trying time for my wife and I as we are both only children - No siblings to share this with. Please keep my family and I in your prayers as we move forward.

    Godspeed Dad - I love and miss you dearly.

    Very sorry to hear about the lose of your Dad. From what you have said about your Dad he was a wonderful father, husband and role model for you. Grieving is always hard and you will always think about all the good times and all the little things that you shared in life together with your dad and mother, it will help and heal the pain of his lose. Condolences on your lose and prayers for your mom. Your Dad will RIP knowing that he had accomplished his goal in life, to be a loving husband , father and role model.
