Entry for November 14, 2007
Thank you to everyone who sent thoughts and prayers for my dad and my family.
Dad passed quietly on Tuesday morning at 12:12 am, just after DD and I left for the airport. My sister was the only one of us kids left (he insisted he didn't want us there, but gave in to youngest sister staying to help his wife) and she called me right after. DD and I turned around and went back for a couple of hours (we didn't have to fly out till almost 8, and only had a 1 1/2 hour drive) to comfort my little sister.
He got a chance to see all the kids, and grand kids one last time. That made his time easier.
It is a very sad time for us, but he is no longer in pain. He has had a lot of trouble since his heart attack 3 years ago. Plus, he is now with my mom - where he has wanted to be since her passing from cancer almost 17 years ago.
