Three generations holding hands today. #BuddyBregman @1lxndon and me. My Father hasn't held my hand since I was a little girl but today he, Landon and I held hands as my Father starts his last adventure. All of his nurses are true rock stars, their compassion touches me so greatly. I knew my dad could hear us when we spoke to him and I pray that this part goes fast and easy. He is comfortable and sleeping peacefully. Fly high Dad, I've always called you Peter Pan. I know you can do this. Fly. #alzheimerssucks #thelonggoodbye #onwings #love #family @pyrcie
