He had a very strong spiritual belief that when it is your time to go, it's your time to go, so I have to wonder if that had something to do with it. My uncle had been hit very hard by the passing of my cousin (his sister's son). My cousin was 19 and had been living with my dad and uncle when he hung himself in the basement this past Labor Day weekend.

I am literally worrying myself sick over this.

Oh...that is so tragic. Your family has had it's share of sad happenings. It could be that he wanted to just let nature takes it's course.

I'm so sorry. I know it's really hard right now and I hope you and your family will find some peace through your grieving. Keep is updated on your dad's situation. Sending vibes that everything gets sorted out.

Well, one of my dad's sisters has offered the extra room in her home to dad. I am so thankful and think it would be a good thing for both of them since they are both single, but dad wants to try to stay in the house he rented with my uncle. I guess from here on out we just play it by ear.

I've never seen my dad so vulnerable. In the last several years he has had a lot of loss-3 of his best friends have died, 2 of diabetes and one of a heart attack, then my cousin and now my uncle. Yesterday he just seemed like a sad old man It hurts my heart to see him like that.
