Tough posting in this area of the forum but I know that there are a bunch of supportive people on TW and prayers can be powerful!!!!
My father-in-law passed away this afternoon after a two year long battle with cancer. Tough part is that we are in New Brunswick and he is in Ontario (1200km away). We got bad news yesterday morning that he was in the hospital in bad shape, so we booked a flight for my wife for this morning. My wife left at 7:00am and arrived at the hospital at 12:30 in the afternoon. Just ten minutes after arriving, her dad passed away while she held his hand with her mother and brother there as well. My father-in-law went into the hospital only 36 hours before this. I'm soooo glad that she could be there when he passed away. I truly believe that he waited for her to arrive even though he wasn't able to talk to anyone in the room. My wife had asked her mother to tell him to hang on until she got there. When she got to the room she told my father-in-law that she was there and that it was OK for him to continue to his next life. Then 10 minutes later he was gone.
I really wish I could be there for my wife!! I am at home with my two children and we couldn't afford to all go to Ontario with her. Having her go through this without me is eating me up!!
Could use some prayers to keep everyone strong!!
