My dad has been in Haiti since November. He spends winter over there and comes back in the summer. During his time away we typically send him money and occasionally check on him to make sure hes safe, happy, and healthy.
On April 20th I asked my mom was also vacationing in Haiti, the conditions of my dad. "He is good, he has a cold but everything is ok," she replied. " Well he's due to come back so tell him he better get to packing," I joked. The following night my sister texted me to inform me that our dad has complications breathing. Knowing that our dad was not in the best health conditions, due to his diabetes and other health issues. We concluded that our dad needed to be on the next flight back to Boston. I quickly booked a flight for him to come home.
That night I rested a little easy knowing my dad would be able to recieve the treatment and care he needed to help him get better. Also, knowing that my mom was on her way to see him. Once they told me this I went to bed at peace because my mom is a saint and fixes anything especailly, my dad! In the morning I was awaken by a call stating that my dads condition had worsen and was relying on oxygen to breathe and had blood sugar was as low as 7!
Our dad was called to heaven on April 22nd 2016. Our hearts are souls are torn completely but we are trying to be strong for each other and especially our mother. She didnt even get a chance to speak to her husband.
This is a very difficult and emotional time for my family and I, we are trying to bring our dad home and send him off peacefully. He is currently in Haiti and we are all coming together to fund his return. We are asking for your help and support to bring our dad home to us. A little goes a long way and anything will help our family. I know my dad has touched so many of your hearts as he touched ours. Our best friend is in heaven but we need to see him one more time. God Bless you all and pray for my family.
