    Be there for all of them. I'm at loss of words myself right now. But be open, let them talk if they want, let them cry if they want, comfort them the best you can. I know it would be tough to see your child go before you- I have a 15 month old son, so I know a part of me would die if something happened to him. But I couldn't go as far as killing myself. I feel everything is supposed to happen for a reason, and you have to be strong, as hard as that may be. I'm shocked your Dad did this only because he has other children and grandchildren to live for! I will pray for you and your family. Be there for all of them, and again, I'm trying to be here for you as well- you need others you can go to also.

    I am so, so sorry that you are left to deal with these multiple tragedies! As I understand your question, you need to know what to do for your daughters and sister to help them cope with dad's suicide and your sister's serious illness. My dear one, you are dealing with so much it is asking a lot of yourself to attempt to ease the pain and suffering you all experience at this time. The only thing I could suggest is to hold each other close, don't accept any blame or responsibility for dad's tragic decision to end his life . That was his decision - terribly misguided, but his alone. Reassure your daughters that you will keep them close and safe and encourage your sister that you will be there for her to help her in what ever way you can. It's most important that you help each other. Again, I am so sorry!

    If your dad is still in hospital there is a chance you would not have again to let the Lord in his life, there is always today.
