dad 001

july 27, 1926-september 8, 2009

we were awakened at 2:20 am this morning.  my fil passed away peacefully with my sil by his side at 1:05 am. 

we had gotten back yesterday after being at his bedside the entire night/early morning hours. 

words cannot express our deepest sorrow for our great loss.  but we do take comfort in knowing that he is no longer agonizing and is in a better place.

my dear fil was in remission from bone cancer for the last few years.  a week ago, he fell & broke his hip.  it was the beginning of an end.  an end of someone who held a very special place in our hearts. 

even though we did not know that our time with him would be our last, it was fitting that we spent our wedding anniversary yesterday with him.  he was our best man at our wedding seven years ago.  & he shall always be in our hearts.


we love you dad and we hope you knew that we were there for you in your final hours.
