Rest In Peace  
After being diagnosed with ALS in April on 2002, my Dad died yesterday, August 21st, 2004 at 2:20 PM. It would have been his and my Mom's 33rd wedding anniversary. Strange how coincidences line up some times.

Services will likely be held at the end of this week, in Wellesley, MA and an open house of sorts at my house in Westford.

it's been one of those years.
hang in there, and hopefully there's comfort in knowing the worst is over.

(well, barring excessive family drama, in which case, just remind yourself that you can't kill them, one funeral is difficult enough. it worked for me.)

Oh my god, I'm so sorry...
I realize that anything I say at this point is unlikely to be helpful. Worse, it's likely to be well meaning but borderline offensive.

So I'll limit myself to:

Don't forget to take care of yourself.
If there's anything I can do, let me know.

i'm really sorry, tim. i know this has been hard on you for a while; here's to finding peace and a sense of closure.

I'm very sorry to hear about this. Many hugs to you, and I hope that you are able to find comfort in those around you. And am glad that it sounds like you at least had a chance to get some closure (I hope that you did, rather than it just appearing that way). It's never hard to lose a loved one, and I can only imagine the pain of losing a parent.

Both Josh and I offer our sympathies. If there is anything we can do to make the rest of your life easier right now, let us know.

I'm sorry Tim. Not a whole lot of useful things to say, but you have my condolences, and if there's anything I can do, let me know.

It's not much, but...
