The angels are rejoicing...

They have their newest member. He will be missed but I have wonderful memories of him. Thanks to all of you for your uplifting posts.

Thank you for the hugs, Marilyn. I'm happy that he has a new audience to tell his stories to. They were wonderful.

Most people don't have their dads as long as I did, so I am very grateful. Thank you.

I know it'll be hard at first for you all, but you have a lot of good memories, and you know he's young again and not suffering any more.

I'm sorry for your loss, Patt. It'll be hard for everyone for a while but your memories and stories of his antics will keep him close to you now and always; close your eyes and he'll always be there.

Thank you, Grey. I knew this was coming, but you're never fully prepared. The service is Thursday and I'm dreading the bagpipes playing Amazing Grace. That always makes me cry.

There are eight of us siblings, so we're all looking out for each other. Thank you for your kind words.

I hope he went peacefully and without suffering, with all his family around him. My thoughts are with you and your family. (((big hugs)))

He only suffered for about two days, really. And he was pretty much out of it. Might have been us suffering more than him. It was very quick. All eight of his children were there to help him get through it and his wife, my mom of 68 years.

I've been away from LJ for quite awhile so I'm just now reading this. I'm sorry about your dad. It's comforting, isn't it, to know he's in a better place? But it still hurts, all the same! {{Patt}}

Yes, it still hurts, but he went so quickly and easily, which a lot of people don't get to do. They suffer. It was so quick that it threw us into shock. We all miss him, but are glad he doesn't have to suffer. Thank you so much for your kind words.
