Help My Mom Bury My Dad

My mom and my dad have been married for 40 years. This past May he suffered a stroke that left him in a vegetative state. We decided to take him home to take care of him. These past couple of months have been very difficult but we were happy to have him with us every morning. Unfortunately, January 8, 2018 God decided to call him back home! My mom has taken this very hard.Yesterday morning. My mom called me saying that his hands were dark and when I went home he was already very pale I put my ear to his chest and didn't hear his heart pumping. I went out of the room to cry and when my mom asked what happen I told her that I didn't hear hear a heartbeat she ran back into the room and started screaming on top of him.... When the EMS and police came they had to carry him out in a body bag it was the saddest thing that I've ever seen my mom was screaming out the window, "Don't leave me" "I love you." We are all incredibly brokenhearted. He was a good man, an amazing father and marvelous husband. He did everything in his power to make us happy! We love you, Papi. We can't wait to see you again!
