    I think at times that he is no longer in pain

    and is in a better place but then the guilt engulfs me that I should have done more to help. He passed in my arms while I was giving him a sip of water. Did I cause him to leave before his time? Was he going already? Why did he die? I don't know but I feel so guilty. He would...
