12:50 am and the vigil goes on. All the children are here safely. Jim has went through a lot of changes in breathing, temperature and heart rate. I slept well last night know he had good care. I didn't hear the nurse come in three times, Jim's Nurse and Cna last night were angels. So gentle and loving when handling him. I wish they could have been here tonight. Finally got everyone settled elsewhere. granddaughter asleep in recliner I am going to try and get some sleep on the cot. Thanks for your continued prayers.

and it sounds like Jim is resting peacefully.  It appears that he's coming to the end of his earthly journey so my prayer for you and your family is that everyone has gotten the chance to tell him what a wonderful husband, father and grandfather he is to them and how much you all love him.  I pray that you feel God's presence around you and know that he has all of you wrapped in his arms offering comfort and peace as he gently holds Jim in the palm of his hands, waiting to take him to his heavenly home. 

Whispered a prayer for all of you again as I type this.  Know that I will be praying for you all throughout the next days ahead. 

Thoughts and prayers are with you and God Bless.

Doug and Diane Ditto

so many memories have surfaced...watching my husbands grandma struggle and finally take her last breath was hard. I truly believe she knew we were all there with her, we sang to her, read poems , and played music softly. You and your adored Jim are in my prayers, and the family that loves you are there to lend support and love. Bless you Debbie, you're a wonderful wife

Shortly after the original post Jim's breathing started to change and he breathed his last breath soon after. I believe his spirit left before the last breath because I felt the most awful pain in my heart. Even though I thought it would be a relief, it was devestating when the nurse said, "He's gone."  I say, "Gone from my sight, but still in my heart."

Oh Debbie, I am so sorry for your loss.  Of course you are devastated by the loss of your true love.  Jim was so fortunate to have you near him, loving him to the very end.  We should all be so blessed.  My you find some measure of peace knowing Jim is once again whole and free of pain.  God bless you, Debbie.

Thank you John. As I told Tim, spend every waking moment with Shelley and cherish the simplist things she says and you say to her as you won't know how much you wish you would have when she is gone. You will never be able to understand the pain and heart ache you feel when she is gone. I thought I would. I thought since I had great faith I would be able to be a good witness for faith in Christ at a loss but you can't it is humanly impossible.

so terribly sorry for the loss of your beloved Jim.  He was such a fighter and very brave.  He is now pain free and will just be waiting for you, fishing every day.  You were the best caregiver ever.  May the memories of your good times together get you through this saddest of times.

You are a very strong Lady to do what you did for Jim, and know as well as I do it is not about this life but the one after it. I pray that one day all of us who have been a part of the CSN H&N will have a place we can meet in heaven just to laugh about what we went through here on this earth. I pray that God will continue to be with you and give you piece of mind peace of mind in all that you did for Jim

 

God Be with you

Debbie, so very sorry for your loss, I only came in late 2013 and see that you joined mid 2011 - through all that you and Jim have been through together here, I noticed that you had time to respond to others as well - what a beautiful testimony to love for one another and those around you that you also had room in your heart to help, advise, cheer and console.  Thinking of you and Jim "in your heart" forever.

Debbie, many heartfelt prayers from my family to yours. Following the last month of your posts you are one very strong and loving caregiver and spouse. I cannot imagine what you are going through but know Jim had the best care any spouse could give.

the only prayer I will say before I lay down tonight will be for you.

I'm so very sorry. Jim is not gone. He has simply reached a new destination where there is no more strife and pain for him.

I'm glad his children were able to arrive safely and be with both of you.

Keeping you in my prayers.

Luv,
