Long, Last Looks and Last Words – Letting Go and Gaining The Inside Advantage

Mom healed quickly from her heart surgery and was able to leave the hospital; Dad wanted to spend his last days at home with Mom, so he went into hospice care. We knew he didn’t have much time in this human body — it was tired from so much living. It was time to let go of him as my earthly father. I knew that his spirit would soar! His soul was ready. And I knew he wasn’t afraid to let go because he had already shared his beautiful near-death experience with me.

Kissing Dad for the Last Time
Kissing Dad for the Last Time


The last time I saw him, I lived as deeply as I could in every single moment — I looked deeply into his eyes and experienced perfect LOVE, I focused on the warmth of his breath on my fingers as I fed him a piece of chocolate muffin, I felt the warmth of his hand as I held it lovingly in mine, finding it hard to let go. I closed my eyes and felt the warmth of the top of his shaved head on my lips as I kissed him for the last time and said, “I love you, Dad, My Precious One. See you in the blue!”

(That’s what we would say each night when I was a little girl as we went to sleep; it refers to the dark night sky turning into a beautiful blue morning.)

I invite you to go to my website blog for the final part of this story (where there’s always more to read each week) and Dad’s last memorable words to me:   CWLauro.com

Thank you for continuing to “listen” to this touching story. I hope that you realize that you are gaining The Inside Advantage — living more deeply, joyfully, and successfully. Please continue to join me on this journey as we begin to touch on new topics…

Blessings, Love, and Light,
