I am 51 year old man who is dealing with an sick and elderly father, 88 years old. Throughout my life, although I loved my father and I know he loved me, we never really got along, never saw eye to eye on anything. Over the past 1-2 years, as his health started to fail, I have come to realize how very much I love this man, and I realize that even though we never saw things eye to eye, he was always there for me and our family. I know that time is not on his side any longer and I hope that when the day comes, god takes him peacefully and that that he knows how much I love him and have come to respect him.
He has provided so much for me, my family & my 2 brothers & their families. He has been a wonderful husband to my mother and loved by all of us. I will be there for him till the very end....love you dad
