NIK, you've been so kind to me over the past couple of years. Your post left me in tears. You and your entire family will be in my prayers. You are such a loving, compassionate daughter.

I'm sorry NIK.
Mom and I made a similar decision with/for Dad 3 1/2 years ago. How lucky we were to hold his hand, each of us, and tell him it was ok to go.
And he did.
I'm Happy, not Sad!

Holding you up in prayer this evening. Prayer that God covers your Mom in His love and grace; and that He provides you strength and courage to face the days ahead.
May God bless you all.

(((NIK))) It's a very difficult thing to do, but also a very blessed thing to be able to hold that hand and let them go.
Big hugs. She will always be with you.

(((NIK and family))) I feel for you, I really do. A few years back, I had to make the decision to remove my Dad from life support. It was the hardest thing I have ever done. I wish you strength.
