and I am in a critical care ward on death watch for my father.
I think I can safely say that the LMCE communities' thoughts are with you and your loved ones. May you cherish and celebrate the memories of the good times you've spent with your father, and I hope that those memories help bring comfort and peace to you both. May your faith (or the Force ;-) grant you the strength, courage and peace of mind to face what comes.
Our Thoughts and best wishes are with you. You are not alone.
