I'm so sorry for your loss Zeus. I'm glad you got to be there, I think that really helps in the long run. It sounds odd to want to be there when someone dies but I was there when Nic passed as well as my Grandpa, it gave me extra peace somehow. We'll be thinking about you.

I'm glad you and your brother were able to be with him. I held my mom's hand with my head on her arm as she took her last breath. That is a surreal feeling that can't be replicated. But there was an immediate peace and calm that took over the room when she passed. I remember being extremely scared as they took her breathing tube out and we waited for hours with her. I was terrified for those few hours - like couldn't breathe at times. But that peace and calm was a good reminder of how she always made me feel.
This was almost precisely the experience I had, and you describe it so well. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience.
Very well said F_B.

Jimmy V week. I watch his speech every year and it chokes me up every time.
