"Abide with Me"

Dave is asleep most of the time now. He seems very peaceful. He doesn't seem to be in pain, or discomfort. He does have an on-call Hospice nurse who has been here a lot to help get him comfortable and I think he finally is. His children are all here with him now. I think that alone has helped him to relax and be more comfortable.

Dave will not be able to have visitors anymore. His family needs time to be with him. There is a notebook hanging from the front door of his house. Please feel free to leave messages there, on facebook, or on his blog. We read them to him at night before he goes to bed.

We will continue to let all of you know how this progresses as well as funeral information when that time comes.

Thank you again for your love and prayers. Dave's life has been so blessed by the many loved ones he has. Thank you. God Bless!
