My father’s uncle, and I agree with him, put it best:
What a waste.
I just got the call from mom … he apparently passed away last night just after 10 pm. We had been meaning to plan the wake/funeral, but mom kept putting it off because all of the kids couldn’t be together. We will be making plans this evening.
In short, I am glad his suffering is over. I long ago came to terms that this was not going to be a pretty ending, but that it was going to end. I am more concerned with my mom who is not dealing with this well. Pepper is also probably not dealing with this well.
I will keep y’all updated on things as they happen.
