    Sorry I somehow hit enter before I was done typing... why is this so scary?  I am terrified of the day it is one of my parents!

    Yes, my sister. She had been through an extremely rough time with her health and finally decided she couldn't take it any longer. She went home to die, and asked that everyone come to visit her the week before to say "goodbye". It was the most difficult thing I've ever had to do ... but I had to do it.

    My father passed away earlier this year and I sat by his bedside for the last week of his life.

    my father had cancer and we were by his side for the last 7 months of his life. We all stood by his bedside and watched as he took his last breath. He had a tear roll out of each eye when he died - like he was saying he was sorry he had to go. It was the worst day of my life.

    A month back had to visit my grandma in the nursing home, hospice took over caring for her, making sure her last wishing were kept, sitting around waiting for someone you love to die is not fun at all. My grandmother died 2 weeks ago. My mother sat by her mothers bedside, holding her own mothers hand when she passed.

    My mother passed in the hospital 3 years ago after 5 years of battling breast cancer. I sat with her through two days of coma before she went. It was horrible. Yesterday I found out my grandmother has numerous tumors throughout her body and I am going to have to go through this again.

    I was at my Grandparents house when my Grandad passed. One minute he was breathing the next I hear whaling from his room, I ran in there and he was gone.

    I took care of my favorite aunt for 3 weeks before she died, she needed me, i was the closest. I have to say I still feel to this day and for the rest of my life to have been so privileged to be the one there for her for those 3 weeks before the rest of the family came. I wouldn't give that time up for any thing in the world. I was also blessed to be the one to find my mom after she passed, Yes it was the worst day of my life, but it was also the best. She brought me into this world, and I was there when she went to the next spiritual party.
