My daughter wrote this on her blog shortly after her Papa passed away. I thought you would enjoy a glimpse of her journey in dealing with her Papa’s death.
So today I saw my Papa take his last breath of air on this earth. It was a touching moment to see him step from this realm to the presence of Jesus. It was very hard and I have my moments where I cant believe the man that brought the words grandpa to true meaning is no longer here.
When I got to the house I immediately went to the chair he ALWAYS sat in to either watch TV or visit with the visitors. It still had the paper he was reading, and the pens he was marking with. I curled up against that worn leather just to feel the warmth that it onced carried by my Papa. I would give anything to hear him laugh with his deep laugh.
He went peacefully this morning at 6:25 am. As soon as his shallow short breathing stopped so did the color of life that flowed in his body. I was cold and heartbroken looking at him with my dad, yet however mixed in all of it there were also tears of joy as he was right then in the presence of God and His Son knowing that one day I shall be with him again.
Thank you all for your prayers and support that have meant a great deal to my family. Thank you all again for your prayers.
