“He Wasn’t Alone, He was with You, in Your Heart”

On 23 March 2014, Redditor sparkytheelephant asked, “What single decision in your life do you regret the most?” BaconLovingCanadian wrote, “My dad told me to go home and put my kids to bed after I had spent the day at his side in the hospital. I didn’t want to leave, but he told me your kids should never go to sleep without you kissing them good night. He died that night and I feel I never really said goodbye.” cambamshazam commented, “I can understand, but maybe look at it this way: your dad wanted you to go home to your kids. You did what he wanted. His last thoughts were probably of you and his grandkids, and knowing that he would be leaving behind a family that loved each other very much. Isn’t that something we all want?” In addition, Zinbadd commented, “Hi! So I’m a random Internet stranger, but let me offer you this piece of information. I work in the death care industry. This happens all the time. Parents will wait until their child/children are gone to pass, because either 1) they want to be alone or 2) they don’t believe their kid should witness it. It hurts so bad to know he was alone, I’m sure. But he did it for you, or for him. I know it doesn’t make the pain go away, but please know, he knew what he was doing. He sent you to be with your children, because that’s what he wanted for you. To go love your kids the same way he loved you. He wasn’t alone, he was with you, in your heart. :-)”
