So sorry to hear of your loss. He was such a hard working and caring man among those who took care of his family. Someone shared with me when daddy was so ill that God allows our loved ones to suffer so it will be easier for those of us being left behind to let them go. Our desire to know they are no longer in pain trumps us never wanting to loose them. I hope you find peace in knowing his suffering is over and see his loving spirit in everything that comes alive on the farm this spring.
