“My father was in the hospital slowly passing away from pancreatic cancer. He was in a medical-induced coma. I was sitting at his bedside in a room full of people. I was the only one sitting at his side and at the moment was the only one paying attention to him.
My thoughts were overcome with details on what to do with Dad’s house, belongings and finances. I was afraid everything was going to be up to me to handle. I was trying to figure out what I was going to do because there was nothing else to do except wait. The doctors had said Dad’s death was imminent.
Dad suddenly opened his eyes, lifted his head, looked up at me, and said, ‘Down the middle.’ Some people asked what he had said and others went right on talking. Dad looked at me, again, right in the eyes and said, ‘Down the middle.’ I nodded my head in agreement and he dropped his head back to the pillow.
That was the only time Dad had uttered a word to me while he was passing. Later that night, my sister and I were the only ones attending Dad. She left the room to go talk with someone. As she walked out the door, he took his last breath.”
