Dad - Passed March 25th

Postby PVF1799 » Fri Jun 15, 2018 3:15 pm

Hi all - after 98.5 years Dad passed at 0230 on Palm Sunday this year. I was with him in the farm house just 10 feet from where he came into this world. He got tired of being without mom and being in bed so he made a choice to stop eating and go to her. He had been on home hospice care since just after Thanksgiving of last year.

He will be missed. I know just how lucky I am to have had him for 61.5 years of my life. Thanks to those of you that saw the FB posts and sent condolences there. Lost'em both in less than 12 months - kind of what we expected.

I hope now to be able to get more involved here again - as I have a 1955 that won't start...

Sad to hear of your dad’s passing. Lost my dad in Dec of ‘14, my only brother the following July, then mom in Feb ‘17.

Praying for comfort and peace for you and your family.
