    I am so very saddened to hear this news; it is hard at any time but extra hard for such a young family. I know so well about making the hospice decision & I feel so sorry for his wife as watching your loved one slip away like this is so gut wrenching. When my father passed it was an unexpected heart attack but when my mother passed it was pancreatic cancer & the suffering was horrible for all of us. Please know that my heart goes out to this family during this tragic time in their lives.

    Again, thank you. Melinda and I appreciate your prayers, and she asked me to thank all of you.

    I just returned from visiting Jeff and Melinda at Hospice. My friend, Jean, and Pucci came with me. What a heart-wrenching sight. The nurse told me privately that he probably won't even last until Wednesday.

    Jeff is being kept "comfortable" - if I can even use that word - by morphine and Adavan. He's there, but not there. I know he reacted to Pucci, but am not certain he knew Jean or me.

    While I was there, Melinda finally broke most of the news to their kids who have been visiting relatives in Nebraska since the end of May and are due to return home Wednesday night. She's leaving it up to them whether they want to fly back sooner - I urged her to TELL them to come home sooner, but I can't force the issue.

    Please continue your prayers. They are very much needed in these last days, and very much appreciated.

    Mary Ann

    Mary Ann, thank you for the update, heartbreaking as it is. I know this is very difficult for you, as well. I continue to pray for Jeff''s comfort, and for the strength of his family and friends. On some level, I believe Jeff knew you were there today.
