Final Update

Today with the blood pressure meds maxed out, Dan's dad was reading only 95 over 40-something. At 3:15pm they took hims off the medication and a few minutes later they took out the breathing tubes and everything. Just before 4 he passed on.

When Dan's sister finally was able to say good-bye (she tried see you later, I'll miss you, etc. first) they saw a tear roll down Duane's cheek. At the end Dan leaned over and assured him that he would take care of the rest of the family, God was taking care of them all and that Duane could go ahead and go because they would be taken care of. About 30 seconds after he said that- Duane stopped breathing, etc.

Dan is doing okay, trying to stay strong and take care of things for everyone. He has been able to reflect a little and stuff but I am sure it wont really sink in till everything is done and over with.

I'm so sorry about this.
I see from your posts that it happened so quickly.
You are in my prayers tonight.
