My Father’s Health Is Failing

Recommended Posts

My father has been in the Hospital. He got out today, but the outlook isn’t good. He is at home with round-the-clock nursing care. I thought I’d put this post here for those that remember him from his Bill Powell Stories threads, both here and on GT. I thought those of you who remember him could share a kind word. I’m sure he would enjoy the comments. Please keep him in your prayers.

I enjoyed his stories and have great respect for his craftsmanship and dedication to keeping the  automotive art of the past alive.

Best wishes, sir, and thank you.

I read and enjoyed many of them.  I'm sorry your family is going through this.  Loved ones don't last forever, but knowing that that doesn't help one bit!  I have thought about my demise, and my greatest fear and regret is what it does to my children.  I know what you are going through.

God bless!

I bet he has few regrets if any. We can all only hope to live our lives that way. 
 

May his final days be surrounded by love.

Eric,

Prayers and Best Wishes for the Best Possible Outcome.

Bill Powell Stories were always Great Threads..

my Personal Favorite was the Anti-Prius Thread, that's going back some.

 

i Hope when the time comes He is at Peace and you are all Near.

God Bless you and Your Family.

God Bless your Dad.

I loved his stories! You know, I never connected the dots that he was your Dad. Please extend my best wishes to him, and hopefully my prayers for peace and comfort will be answered.

I think "sliky boy" is the one that sticks out in my memory. That was a classic.

I don't have the history with you or your father that these other folks have, but the fact that you are writing this thread, as difficult as it must be when I'm sure there are a million thoughts in your head speaks volumes to the kind of man your father is in how he raised you. May God watch over both of you and grant you both grace for the journey ahead.
