Thanks to everyone for all the support I’ve gotten here, and hugs to all of you who are dealing with a loved one’s illness while you’re planning.
Future Father-In-Law passed away tonight at 8:20 pm. I am still 800 miles away but Fiance and the rest of his family was there with him. I’ll be flying out for the funeral this week.
I’m holding up and Fiance is “relieved” (his words). They are all exhausted from waiting it out with him.
Our wedding plans are on hold but I’m hoping that Fiance will be on board with continuing them once everything settles. I actually have a great idea for honoring Father-In-Law at our wedding but I won’t share it here until Fiance gives it the green light. I very much hope he does. Future Father-In-Law was so excited about our wedding that I know he would want us to continue our plans.
Remember – life is never ideal. We keep moving on despite the rocks that fall in our path. Cherish your families and everything meaningful in your life while you’ve got them.
Hugs and thanks to the community here and RIP to a wonderful part of my family.

I’m so sorry to hear about your FI’s and your loss. At least he is no longer suffering and is at peace. I hope that you can be there to support your Fiance during this hard time. You are in my thoughts.

Sorry to hear about your Future Father-In-Law. You’re right, he probably wouldn’t want to stop you both from having a wonderful wedding. Wishing you the best 🙂

Thanks for all the warm thoughts. I’m in CT with everyone now. FI’s stepmom has been telling me how excited Father-In-Law was for our wedding and she is too. We’re going through with our wedding in June, but we’ve moved the date to two days later….FIL’s birthday. Fiance will be wearing his wedding band. His brother will still get his June leave so he can be here.
This is a very sad experience, but FIL’s presence can definitely be felt. In all the sadness there is still a bit of hope, humor, and love coming through. I’m so lucky to be a part of this family.
