I'm very sorry about your Dad. I hope that everything goes as easily and gently as possible with as little bother from Step Mother as possible.

I am so sorry, *inviteseller. It's so hard, what you're going through. Relatives can make the process so much more difficult than it already has to be. I'm glad at least the wording was changed in the obituary, and that your beloved father is in good hands now. I'm sending you good thoughts and lots of hugs.
Learn from past. Live in the present. Hope for the future.

*********FINAL UPDATE**********

Dad passed away at 4 43 this afternoon.  I spent the whole day holding his hand and talking to him although he was in a drug induced coma like state.  I was holding that hand as he took his last breath.  There is a whole host of etiquette (and common sense) violations on the part of my step family, but with the help of the awesome nurse and awesome social worker, they helped me keep from snapping and I was firm but polite.  My sister called the funeral home after we got my step mother to go home and spoke to them again about the obituary.  They are throwing away the first one and my sister is writing the new one.  It will probably go over like a lead balloon, but oh well.  Of course the step kids are asking my sister and I how we are going to take care of their mother...pardon?  I am sure I will have some interesting stories to tell.

Thank you all so much for the thoughts and prayers.  It means so much to me.
