    Have a prayer requestÂ… My father and brother are flying in Monday from out of state. Dad is in like mid stages of alzheimers and he wanted to be back home here in Missouri. We found a home not to far from where I live, my brother has been doing a great job and now is passing the baton to me a bit earlier than expected but I look forward to being there for dad. I pray the transition will go smooth and that dad will adjust to his new home. I also pray for a good day here or there for him where we can squeeze in another moment fishing together, I know he would love it. A few years ago I took a weeks vacation and just traveled with dad visiting relatives, his home town and had a great time. I knew in my heart it would probably be our last big time together and sure enough, we did go fishing a couple of times when he was able to come out and visit but now it will be his last trip home. The reality of all this is a roller coaster emotionally but I know I have to embrace the memories while trying to maintain in the present. I know only thru prayer will I be sustained thru it all.
    Thank you everyone, Michael

    Michael,

    Our prayers are with you. I know the feeling, my father has always been my best friend and just about my only fishing partner, other than my wife. My Dad is 84 now and begining to show signs of his age as is expected but it just kills me to even think that one day I will be left without him to tell me the same stories over and over. By now I know all of them by heart but I always listen just like it is new news to me. I love my Dad very much as I am sure you do yours so I feel so much for your pain at this time. May God bless you and him. You will both be in my prayers.
