    Default My dad passed away

    My dad passed away this morning. My brother said he had a peaceful night and the hospice brought in a cd of big band music to play for him - he LOVED big band music. My parents were married 66 years this past February and they absolutely loved each other.

    Because my dad died as the result of a fall, I guess the coroner's office has to investigate so it will be a couple of days before he is released to the funeral home, so no details yet. Dad wanted no obituary, no calling hours, no public funeral service. We'll see what Mom wants to do and I'll know more about DH'ss situation after his appointments tomorrow. I'm thinking the doctors won't want him to travel so far but he might be OK to stay by himself for a few days. My youngest son is devastated - he and my dad were very close. Prayers for him would be appreciated. He called his older brother who lives on the west coast to tell him, and all he said was, "We're kinda busy right now but thanks for letting me know." What???? I just don't know what's going on with my oldest son but I have too many other things going on to worry about it right now. Heartbreaking...

    My dad and I were very close and I was always a Daddy's girl. I knew how much he loved me and vice-versa. No regrets in our relationship, and I'm happy that he's no longer suffering or in pain but is healthy and whole and walking with Jesus. I imagine him being greeted by his parents and others he loved who have passed on before him. But I will miss him terribly. It's hard to imagine not seeing the twinkle in his eye or hearing him answer the phone by saying, "Well, hello there, my sweet daughter!"

    Thank you all for your prayers for my family.

    Hugs and prayers - just take care of yourself! Prayers continue for your DH, too!
