My Dad

I just wanted to say Thank you for all of the prayers and support regarding my Dad and his recent battle with cancer. He did go to be with the Lord this last Tuesday, June 21st. We had driven from Omaha to East Texas on Sunday to see him because we knew he wasn't doing great. We had no idea that he was in his last days. I was with him, along with my mom and brother, during his final moments. It was a sweet but very difficult time. He wasn't in any pain!

I do have to mention the wonderful service that celebrated Dad's life. It was filled with humor and joy - just like Dad. My middle daughter and my husband sang, "Mighty to Save" and the pastor read letter/stories that the five grandchildren and I had written. I know Dad loved it!

I will be blogging again soon. I have eaten way too much since being in East Texas! I tend to be a stress eater. I have to say - nothing like a small town when it comes to taking care of your friends. The food and fellowship has been amazing! I heard a friend of the family recently say, "There is nothing like funeral food!" And.... she is right!

Thank you again for the thoughts and prayers! See you soon!
