I recently lost my father and best friend. He and my mother met in kindergarten and were married for 61 years. They were very close. My mother and I had visited my Dad the evening before he passed on. My father had been in a comatose state, but when my mother reached the door to leave, he said' "Thank you, Alice - I love you". I stayed on into the night. Our nurse had suggested that one of us that was close to my Dad assure him that my brother, sister, Mom and I would all take care of each other and that it was okay for him to pass on. He nodded and I asked him if he would like me to say a prayer. I took his hand and said the Lords Prayer to him, told him I loved him, kissed his forehead and left the room, tears streaming down my face. At 8:20 the next morning we received the call that my Dad had passed away at 8:10 am. My brother and sister traveled the hour to the hospital to visit with our Dad. My mother and I wanted to keep the memories we had experienced the day before and busied ourselves preparing lunch for family that were arriving at noon. As lunch time approached, I asked my Mom what time it was. She looked down at her treasured watch. It had stopped at 8:10 am.
We could not believe the miracle. We had all been given a gift of knowing a higher power had uniquely recognized the strength of my parents love. It gave us an unusual faith to begin to move on. Have you experienced a strengthening moment or miracle at the time of your loved ones passing?
