Thanks all, this is really a tough one. I think the world of this kid. My son is just distraught. I got the call today at work, and was useless since. I have talked with his Dad, and he is trying to hold up. He is hiding it well, but I know him.

We are just not programmed to bury our kids. Frankie is like another son to me.

That is very true. "Another son to me" passed in December. It was tough. A couple Fridays ago we had a birthday party for him. It was very therapeutic to join his family and friends..........even if Eric wasn't there.

Time passages are both the best and worst we can hope for in life. I pray for those that lose their children before their memory leaves them the same as I do for those who lose their memories yet are surrounded by those who still remember the deep bonds they once shared.

The good news is that because we pray for both the passed and the passing, it means we know we shall again experience their love. Faith is the only attribute that separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom and likely the only reason my vessel is intact after trials and tribulations that have caused me more than once to question my dedication to living.

Honor the dead and the living with all the humanity you can muster and hang in there knowing there is life after death for the living and the deceased.

The young man's Father continues to be optimistic. My son spoke with Frankie last night. Frankie wants to "go home and get this over with!"

Just does not sound good. Thanks to all.

But it is good that Frankie has come to some peace with the inevitable. But I'm sorry and sad that this is the way it is.

Well, they gave him a week, and he lasted bout 36 hours. Frankie went home today, and passed away. He was surrounded by his wife, Brother and Mom and Dad. The kids are in Nevada. Not a good way to start a weekend.


Thank you for all the support!

Daoust_Nat I am sorry for your loss. The death of a believer is always hardest on those left behind. But you will see them again. I will pray for your family to have peace. I lost a good friend several months ago. But he too was a believer. I look forward to seeing him in Glory someday.
