Many of you know my Dad and he has expressed a number of times to all of us that we would never want to live a life on a machine. Due to this news, we as a family have decided to turn off the ventilator tomorrow morning and let him pass. Please keep us in your prayers tomorrow especially, and my mom has asked that we all pray for him to pass quickly and peacefully.
A few years ago, after my Dads younger brother died, he found a song that he wanted sung at his funeral, it is called homeward bound, and there is a part in that song that says, " set me free to find my calling, and I'll return to you somehow" he asked us to change the words to, "set me free to find my brother, and I'll return to you somehow" so this song will be sung at his funeral.
My mom says this is what she is doing, it is what he would want. She is "setting him free"
Please know that we are so grateful for all your prayers and fasting over the last couple of months, they have meant so much to us, our testimonies of the truthfulness of the Gospel has been strengthened by your kind words and deeds. We know this hard time is for a "Glorious Purpose" as told to us by a dear family member. We also know that sometimes when we pray for things the answer is sometimes, no... as in this case, and we also know that he will receive his full health and strength after he dies, we know that we will see him again. We will forever be grateful for this knowledge, and for a loving Heavenly Father and older brother Jesus Christ who knows what we are experiencing at this time and will be there for us help us get through it.
