My dad died this morning.

My dad died this morning.

So fortunate he went in his sleep.. things were going badly, no more walking, hardly talking, hardly eating... I guess his heart had had enough. So grateful for the extra two years I had with him, when I had gone back to Belgium to be with him. He was so happy (in tears) when he heard I had found a new job over here, that I was renewing my relationship with my kids... Thank you, daddy for everything. I will miss you. xxx

Lieve I am so very sorry that your Dad has died. What a sad time for you and your family. It sounds like he had a nice death however and that must be a consolation?

That photograph is so beautiful and so apt for today? May God watch over him and over you too lovely Lieve.

Oh God bless you Llieve....what a beautiful picture. It's so representative of the leaving of this world and moving.....I cried when I saw it ; it reminded me of my husband's recent walk toward God's light.

I am glad you have your family with you. It sounds like you have everything in good perspective....

Goodbye Llievs daddy....

For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Isaiah 54:13

Thank you - it's been a rollercoaster day - but so much love. I spent time talking with friends and family, went to see my kids who have lost their 'Opa'. Preparing to travel back to Belgium for our last goodbye. It is a blessing he left the way he did - it was all getting too much, he didn't have much strength left and was very unhappy, to be a burden to my mum, to be stuck inside this crumbling body, waiting for it to end. And it did, sooner than we had expected. Reading so many stories on here, I know this end is what we all hope for, PSP or not. Very sad but so very privileged to have known this wonderful man.

Much love,

Lieve xx

Hallo Cuttercat - ik ben opgelucht dat het voorbij is, en zo eenvoudig, wegslapen.. maar ik mis wel mijn vader, ook al was hij nog maar een frele schaduw van de man die ik heel mijn leven heb gekend. Allerbeste wensen ook voor jou en Charles - dat het lijden zo vlug mogelijk gedaan is. xxx
