I will keep your family in my prayers.

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.

Don’t get to the end of your life and find that you lived only the length of it; live the width of it as well.

I'm sorry if you don't like my Honesty, but to be fair I don't like your lies.
Sometimes it's better to push someone away...not because you stopped loving them but because you can't take the pain anymore.

(((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.
