Ruth Fangman was called home to God on Monday, August 2nd at 9:45 PM, surrounded by her husband, daughter, son and son-in-law. She had some kind of infection and was not responding to any treatment. We sat down with her medical team and decided to end treatment. She would've wanted that. They took her off the ventilator and she breathed on her own for about six hours. Funeral arrangements are pending.

My father, sister and I thank you for all your prayers and support.

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

Mike, please accept my sincere condolences. Know that your mother is now in the peace and joy that is heaven. I will continue to pray for you and your family as you go through this difficult time of adjustment. Talk to each other and share the best of memories of your mother and know that her love for all of you will continue to be felt as you go forward into the future.

It really sucks that we had to make that decision yesterday of all days. It was my sister's birthday.

Oh, Mike. I am so very sorry! And I know what it's like to have happen on a special day like that. I buried my mother Christmas Eve day. It took years to get past that. Tell your sister she'll need to rejoice on that day, in the life her mother gave her.

You are all in my prayers.

I know how that is too. One of my grandparents died on Christmas Eve. Our Christmas dinner that year was eaten at a truck stop somewhere in Iowa.

Today was Mom's funeral. It was very heart-wrenching.

We were surprised, and touched, by the number of people who showed up for both the wake last night and the funeral today.

At the luncheon after the graveside service, I saw something that reminded me of Mom. Someone had ordered a Manhattan on the rocks. That was Mom's cocktail of choice.

That is good. Our departed family members and friends continue so long as we keep the memories. You and your family have my deepest sympathy.

Mike, my sincere condolences, I`m so sorry to hear that, it saddens me. My heart and my prayers go out to you and your family.
Those whom we loved so dearly during their and our life time are never far from us. Their names are written in our hearts and now there is one more angel watching over you.

There is no words of comfort one can say in moments like this except to offer you my sincere condolences to you and your family Mike and hope that you'll find peace in the good memories.
