Why Al Won’t Go


Al has spoken off and on today. Sometimes pretty clear. We are having big issues and messes with bladder spasms. So today has not been a great day.

Tonight after only eating a few bites Al told me he is dying. I took his hand and said that I know and I explained how this is the way he has to do things in order to get a new body.

He went on and said one more thing and then he has said nothing more. He told me he is a failure. My heart broke and I cried. I took his hand and told him in no way was he a failure. I told him how lucky he is that he has seen Jesus.

In fact I told him every possible thing I could think of to say. We, or I talked and hopefully he listened. I talked about forgiveness, that anything he knows he has done has been forgiven by all including God.

I talked to him for about an hour. He is no longer speaking but I hope I helped him to see that he can let go, that all will be alright, that he is the most perfect brother in my eyes, and I told him this too.

  1. Dearest Terry,
    Lean very close to Al’s ear for me, and I want you to tell him that his loving friend Carol sent him a message for him only: he is not a failure, and never was a failure, and never could be a failure, because he is Al….and that I love him.
    Please do this for me…

  2. Terry you are doing so much for him, he is so blessed to have you. The things you are telling him are hopefully brining him some comfort and maybe he can now let go. There is a beautiful heaven that is awaiting him, with choirs and trumpets and nothing but peace and beauty. We are praying for you both. God Bless.

  3. Terry could not be any less of a failure. The love you have for him shows that he is a fantastic guy. He will be judged as someone who will be an asset when he gets upstairs.

    {{{HUGS}}} to you and Al

  5. This really tugged at my heart.
    I can only imagine how difficult these times are for both of you.
    You are a great sis. And Al is a wonderful brother. The connection between the two of you is obvious. Love, love & love.
    {Hugs} to you
    {Hugs} to Al
