I thought perhaps an update?  I received an email from Mary who has another family member very ill.  She went to visit them for a few days while Michael's sister stayed with Michael.  Things are about the same, but thankfully the hurricane didn't knock on their door to add more to deal with.  

I just continue to wish them both the strength and love to deal with these times, and hopefully they will continue to be surrounded in love of family and friends.

I'm sorry I've been away so long.. I'm afraid I've had a death in my family. My dear father, age 87, has gone to be with the Lord now.. he had Alzheimers, heart problems, diabetes... and finally pneumonia and kidney failure... I'm missing him so much.. but he's so much better off.. out of pain....

Michael was upset that he couldn't go with me to see Daddy a few weeks ago in the hospital... but he just couldn't make the trip.  I'm so glad I went.. my father had one of his rare lucid moments.. called me to his bedside.. grasped my hand firmly.. and looked at me like.. "Are you who I think you are?"  I said.. "Yep.. it's me.. and I drove all the way here BY MYSELF!" If you know me at all.. you know I hate going anywhere alone.. but I had to get there.. so I drove four and a half hours to get to Atlanta alone.  He knew that too.  His eyes got wide as saucers.. as if he was saying.. "You're kidding!?"  I saw my father right then.. my real father.. for just a second.. I'm SO glad we had that moment.  He passed about five days later.

Michael is going abit downhill..he is having to have morphine occasionally.. the nurse says it could be weeks now.. not months.  

Prayers for peaceful passing please..

Mary

I'm so sorry to hear about your Father, but I'm glad you were able to have those moments with him. I'm also sorry to hear about Micheal's turn. I pray that you will find peace and comfort from the Lord through your father's passing, and through Micheal's illness.  

Oh, make me Thine forever
And should I fainting be
Lord, let me never ever
Outlive my love for Thee

Mary, your serving of stress has loaded your plate.  I wish several of us could be there to give you the time and peace you deserve.  We know that Michael has been fighting the good fight...and we will continue to pray with, and for you all.

God's love and light surrounds you.
May you feel warm and safe within love's embrace.

Mary, Michael is still in my thoughts and prayers each day , I also have been away visiting my 81 year old father, I went all the way from Australia to in England , I had three weeks with him . He as many health problems and although he was in hospital when we arrived , he was determined to come out and spend some time with us ,I am sad to say he so upset when we had to leave and was back in hospital the day we had to left , but I know he was glad of the time we had together

Mare, I am glad to see you made the drive safely.

Again, all I can do is offer my prayers for you, Michael and the family to help you get through the days ahead.

You have my sympathy for your loss and your  story touched me that he recognized you and was his "old self".

Remember, I am here if you need me...

Mary,
My thoughts are with you and Michael at this time. I know it's never easy to let go or to say goodbyes. I pray that Michael spends his final days as pain free and lucid as possible so that he leaves behind memories you can cling to rather than try to block from your mind. May God ease his passing from this earth and strengthen and bond your family through his life.
God bless,
Ruth

Donítí Cry for me
~Ruth Kephart~

Donít cry for me
when I am gone, and this life
progresses to the next...
Remember me with smiles
and pleasant thoughts.

Donít throw dirt on my grave,
as my body lies cold and still
and my soul soars...
Bury hatred and cruelty
and let the anger go, not me.

Do not cut flowers
to lay on my casket or on my grave
they will only fade and rot with time...
Plant seeds of happiness instead
and let them grow.

Donít shout at the skies
as they pour forth in rain
for when the storm ends...
The sun will once more shine
and things will seem brighter.

Donít cry for me
when I am gone,
for in you I will always live.

Dear Mary and Michael:

Mary, my heart really goes out to you in dealing with the loss of your father. I am so glad you had a brief time with him, where he knew you.  I went through something of the same type of thing when my father died.  You never forget those few precious moments.

I am praying daily for you and your family and Michael.  I know there is no reversal for him, but pray it will be peaceful for both of you.

Love
Betty Lou

Thank you all SO much... I appreciate all your kind words, thoughts and prayers.. and I know Michael will to.

I especially like the poem posted.. I needed that.. I have lost someone else very dear to me too... I haven't mentioned it here before...but.. I just found out in May that my first love...Monty... was murdered three years ago.. I hadn't seen him for a long time.. but his death has affected me so strongly.. that it's hard to comprehend sometimes.  I think part of it is because it was such a shock.. and I never had any closure with him in our relationship...part is because I "lost" him the same year I lost my father.. and will lose my husband.. who was a friend of his by the way... I find myself surrounded by sorrow I'm afraid.  I hold onto God.. tightly...

Thank you all again.. we love you all.

Mary

Mary, you have suffered several blows recently.  Please know that we are all here for you...no matter what.  Give my love to Michael and your son, and you, especially, I hold you in my hugs...

I think we all have a first love in our lives, and if we knew what had happened to them, we would be right where you are.

Not an easy place to be.

The nice thing is, that you were able to share him with Michael.  Give Michael my best, please.     Karilea

My heart ~ and my prayers ~ go out to you, Dear Mary for all that you have been going through. It could have fallen a lesser woman but I do believe you are beginning to realize that you have far more inner strength than you once may have thought. We never really know what we are made of until we are tested ~ and tested you most certainly continue to be.

I will pray for Michael's release and that it be one of 'grace full' passing.

Sending a rainbow of loving, protective Lights to arch over your blessed home,

Linda

Thank you both...I guess Monty's death has hit me harder than you would expect for the time that has passed since I last saw him.. I think.. in the back of my mind.. I had hoped to see him again.  We were very close...

Michael was a friend of his.. that's how I met Michael.. it's a long story how it all evolved.. kinda like Peyton Place... and some of you younger folks won't have a clue about that reference... I don't think I was ever completely over Monty... not by a long shot... It's just.. very hard to lose him, my father and Michael all in the same year...  

I am alot stronger than I thought...God moves in very mysterious ways... My son has had a religious awakening... he has started going to church.. and wants to be baptised! I'm VERY happy about that..as is Michael.

I will pass on your love and prayers to him and to Chris...

Much love and appreciation for you support..

Mary

I've been rather silent in this thread, but want you to know that, though quiet, I still have been constantly praying and thinking of you each. Just don't feel I have words that can do justice not only to my thoughts and prayers, but more importantly, to your pain. Mary, hang in there... It's obviously not easy or understandable, but you can survive. Michael will be at peace soon, and pieces of him will remain in you, and in every person who knows of him.
May God hold you close...

Always, Alyssa

Well, I'm more than old enough to understand your Peyton Place reference... and it is amazing how people come into our lives and effect them in such wonderful ways.  I'm sure more than a few of us, Mary, could say, "Oh, the stories I could tell you..." and we for the most part would nod our heads in understanding.  Everyone has a story.

Please tell Chris we are all very proud of him for listening to those voices...and I hope he finds what he needs in any manner of religious experiences and teachings.  Give Michael our love, and that you all know we continue to keep this very special family in our thoughts and prayers.

Thank you Alyssa, what a beautiful sentiment.. And Sunshine..your words are welcome to my ears..

I need to let you all know that the hospice nurse has said "He may have weeks.. but possibly only days now"...

He and I have been spending several hour of very quality time together each night now.. we've been remembering the old days...laughing.. and even talked (and cried) about Monty. He had forgotten about the murder.. he comforted ME over my grief! What an amazing man.

Thank you Trillion for your card... he looked at it for several minutes...which is a long time for him now.

Just wanted to let you know.. the end is probably coming close now...

Mary

Mary, please tell Michael that he will never be forgotten, always loved, and that we will always have his poetry here, just as we have Lyra's, to read over and over again and be close to him, for years and years to come.

Please tell him he is loved. And even while in Heaven, he will still be walking here.

Mary, I've been away for a while and am now just catching up on some of the reading I had missed. I'm so sorry for the loss of your father and friend.

I'm thinking about you all, and hoping Michael is comfortable. Could you please give Michael a big hug for me, and tell him it's from Kit? I'd be so grateful.

Please let him know he's in my thoughts, as are you and your son. Take care ...

Thank you dear Mary for the update. I am sorry for all the sad events that have touched and are touching your life. I see however that you feel God's presence. His love will help you through. And your son's path is beautiful!
I keep dear Michael in my heart and prayers.
The Angels walk with him and are holding his hands. May he feel loved always, knowing that he is never alone, heavenly love floods his heart and body endlessly.
Sending much love and hugs.
