    Default My dad passed last week - final blogpost

    Hi all:

    This is not meant to be a downer post, really. I just wanted to let you all know that Dad passed last week. He contracted pneumonia and stopped eating and drinking. I have been told this is a not uncommon end for many patients with Alzheimer's and other diseases involving dementia.

    I'm including my final blogpost because even though we miss him, his ending was everything we could've asked for. We had no interventions, only support and comfort measures. And our goodbyes were love filled.

    You did such a beautiful job of writing about your dad and your family's journey. I hope you will print it all out for your children to read/have when they are older.
    May his memory be a blessing.

    I am sorry for your loss.

    To be honest, your post isn't really a downer - dementia is a hard disease to support someone through and I am thankful that your family was able to do it. It sounds like his crossing was peaceful and love-filled.
