Dad Update

Mom called us from the hospital Wednesday night a couple of hours after we all got home and said that the nurse suggested she call us, because dad was beggining to pass away.

We all went up there (me, Terry, Stu and Bonnie) and gathered around dad and told him it was okay to go. Eventually, we all found a place to try to get comfortable and rest.

Thursday, dad was still with us, we all spent the night again last night and he's still with us this morning. I've come home to freshen up and go back to the hospital.

I knew everybody was wondering.

I've been thinking about you and your family ... I know that the warmth and comfort you've always shared with others will shine in the next few days. Hang in there. Here's a big e-hug.
