    It with much sadness that I say that my journey is over and the grieving process has begun. My dad passed away peacefully last night sometime after I put him to bed at home at 8pm, and I found him at peace this morning when I went to resume my caring duties. I'd like to thank the members for there support over time

    It's so hard for the family this way, but given time, I hope you will take much comfort in such a peaceful passing.
