That's the one thing about being a child, sooner or later you have to be the stong one. I am sorry for your pain.

Our hearts ache for you dear friends.
Prayers continue for the Holy Spirit to wrap you in His arms and bring you peace.
Your hearts must be filled with sorrow at this time but we hope that sadness will soon be replaced by wonderful memories.
Love & Prayers are sent your way.

Prayers are being said for your family.

I'm so sorry you are going through these trials. Prayers for everyone going up.

I am very sorry. I will pray for your family.

Thinking of you and Linda and your family at this very difficult time.

So sorry to hear this. Our thoughts are with you both at this difficult time.

I'm so sorry.
Prayers and hugs

Peace be with you and all of the family. My thoughts are with you in this hard time. The love from your very large and extended RV family is all around you.

I'm so very, very sorry. My heart breaks for you. Wishing you strength in this difficult time.

We are so sorry... there are no words. Just sending love and strength.

So very sorry to hear about your mother's condition. Prayers for you, Linda, and your mother and extended family. I do pray, if at all possible, your dad can continue to stay in the home, with care from others. I know this is difficult and my heart beaks for you two. Blessings to you both.

Oh Howard this is so sad. The same thing happened to me. I'm so glad you can be there with her during her last days. I held my mom's hand as she passed away and I am so grateful for the privilege. My heart goes out to you and your father. I know how hard this will be for both of you. We send you all our love. Sherry and David

You open your life to us often. Now we open our hearts to you and Linda. Take it one day at a time and you will get through this dificult time.

Being the child of elderly parents is one of the hardest things in the world. So sorry you are going through this but they both need you to be strong right now.

Sending you virtual hugs and all our support.

There are no words.
Praying the Lord brings you and your family through this with as much comfort as possible.
God Bless.


Be happy for your mother, Howard. She has lived a long and fruitful life. She has also lived to see her adopted son grow up to be the man she once dreamed would become. You were the light in her eyes and the smile on her face.

Death is hardest for the survivors and you will need to keep closer with your father now. He will need you more and depend on you more now. Keep comfort in the fact that you did all you could do for her and that she knows this. No one could have done more than you or Linda for them both.

Stay centered in what little comfort your readers may give you.

God bless you, your mother and the rest of your family.

With love,

We'll continue to pray for you and your family. Please know you're surrounded with virtual hugs from all the people whose lives you've touched!

Oh, that brings tears to my eyes . . . God's peace to Anita and may the Holy Spirit give you, Linda and Sterling the strength you need to get through this. We pray for all of you everyday!

So sorry....it's never easy and it is heartbreaking. Hugs to you all.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you.....

So sorry, it is difficult to lose our parents. I lost my dad in 1988 and my mom in 2002. You have my sympathy. Praying for you and your family.

So very sorry, Howard. Words are just not adequate. My heart is very saddened for you.

Virtual hugs,



Our thoughts are with you.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time in your lives.

There is no easy way through this. We have been there four times, with different circumstances each time. Treasure every moment, because you will never have that moment again. Even in a heart-breaking event like this, treasure the moments. Know that it is all part of God's plan. At the time, we don't understand the plan. Later we do.

Sorry Howard, these are tough times and nothing can be said to sooth the pain... But know we are all with you.... Rod

Father, God, we love you. We thank you, Father, for Howard and Linda, their hearts, and all they have done for others. Lord, Howard, Linda, Anita, and Stirling need you right now... this very moment. You have promised never to leave us or forsake us. You are only one whisper, one prayer away. Father, I come before you now, this very moment, to lift this precious family up in prayer. Lord, you also promised never to give us more than we can handle. Father, grant them peace beyond all understanding as you prepare a place in Heaven for Anita for all eternity. Lord, heal their sorrow and pain as they say farewell to a woman who was selfless and loved Howard unconditionally. A beautiful soul who provided a home and shared her heart; a strong foundation for Howard to cling to; an identity, when no one else was there for him. Bless her, oh Lord, I pray. May the pain this family is experiencing now be replaced with sweet, sweet memories and the knowledge that you are God... until they meet again. God bless and keep them today, tomorrow, and all the days of their lives. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

Howard, Linda... our hearts break for you. You have been, and will continue to be, in our thoughts and prayers. May God bless and keep you.

Oh, Howard, we are so sad to learn this news. It isn't easy for anyone, let alone your Dad. Please know you ALL are in our prayers.

You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

You have shared your adventure with all of us for years. Please be comforted by the fact that some of us have been there before and understand the tough decisions you have to make at this time. We have you and Linda in our thoughts and prayers at this dificult time.

So sorry Howard. I have been through this exact experience with my Mom and Dad. Our thoughts are with you and Linda.

Prayers of comfort and strength to your family.

I'm so sorry. Been there and it's devastating. Sending prayers to you, Linda & your Dad.

So sorry Howard, you all are in my thoughts and prayers. May you find peace in the good memories, and may God hold you in his hands as you all go thru this together.

Our hearts go out to both of you, your mom and dad. Thoughts and many prayers.

Prayers for you Linda and your dad.

My heart aches for you, too, my friend. Such pain is consuming as so many of us know all too well when we lose or fear for our parents. Rely on your friends and your faith - I know you have plenty of both. Hugs and prayers sent to you.

We are so very saddened for you and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Linda, your Dad, and the rest of the family. I know it's difficult, but remember the good times, and celebrate your Mom's life. Peace be with all of you during this very difficult time.

Mike and Terri

Howard, my heart breaks for you, and I know the pain is unbearable. Lean on the staff at the Hospice House!! They were my lifesavers when my Mama was in the Hospice House! You, your Mom and your Dad are in my prayers!!

Prayers for you and your family - may the loving arms of our Heavenly Father wrap you in peace -

Howard and Linda, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Sending Hugs.

Praying for God's grace, comfort, and strength for you and your Dad.

We are sorry to hear that. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

So sorry to hear that. Praying for you all [hug]

Howard, I am so sad for you. I lost my dad and Ricky lost his mom last year within a month of each other. I certainly isn't easy to travel down this road. I can certainly understand your broken heart. I will pray for all of you and that God's peace and comfort will rest on you and lift you up and give you strength to endure this time in your life.

So sorry to hear this. Having just gone through this with my own beloved mother I feel for you. It is the hardest thing ever but she will know you are there and feel comfort in that. Thoughts and prayers are with you, Linda & both your parents.

Prayers for you, Linda, your dad and your mom.

prayers for you and your family. both my husband and myself have had to let our parents go. it is so very difficult, but I always feel that, especially my mother, is with me always. cherish your memories and keep them always close to your heart. God Bless you.
