Monday we went to visit my dad and he was the same as every other day. He ate and he rested. He seemed comfortable. The next morning I got a call from my friend Tommy that had gone to visit and he asked how long it was going to take me to get there, that my dad was having trouble breathing. I went and got Josh up and we went to the nursing home. It takes 30 minutes to get to the nursing home. We made it though. I told my daddy I loved him and that Josh and I were there. I held his hand and I told him we were all ok. He had a hard time breathing and started the death rattle around noon. He passed away at 1:50PM on Tuesday June 20th. The rest of the day went very fast and is a blur. I could not sleep very well that night and got up really early the next morning. My mom is not dealing very well with any of this. Josh and I are doing a lot of the memorial planning along with my friend Tommy. Tommy and I were raised together, so we are like brother and sister. He went in last week and talked to my dad alone and told him he would look after my mom and me. He is just a precious friend. So, it is just a really hard time right now. I feel like I have nothing positive to write, so I have been kind of quiet on facebook. I get home super late anyway. So, the memorial is going to be July 1st at 10AM. I want it to be so nice and perfect just like my dad. I am doing my best. I am so very sad as you can imagine. Just pray for God's comfort and strength for us right now. I will update soon.
