Harvey E. Forsyth Jr. August 6th 1974-November 30th 2010
God saw you getting tired, a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered, ‘come with me’. With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you fade away. Although we loved you dearly we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating your tender hands at rest, God took you home to prove to us, he only takes the best.

I never thought I would have to write this but Harv lost his battle today. After about a year (knowingly for 9 months), Harv has been fighting hard!! There are no words to express how grueling and shocking the last few days have been. Harvey did all he could, but took a turn for the worst this past Saturday. He was so ready to rest and go home, but he started having trouble breathing and a lot of pain in his spleen. The cancer was taking over and moving fast… it did not give him enough time to heal and get stronger for another round of chemo, or even go right into the transplant. Harv was comfortable with pain, anxiety medicine, and oxygen the past few days. He got to see some family and friends and knew that we were all there with him. I was able to spend a lot of alone time with him yesterday, and know that he saw me there next to him when he would try to open his eyes. He was comfortable til the end and passed away with me and Mom by his side… listening to some good tunes on the ipod.
