    George, you were a good brother-in-law. I always liked making you sandwiches or hamburgers when you came over and we always had dessert, too. When I stayed with you and Virginia I felt like it was home. You always made me feel like I was at home and you always made me laugh, too. I will miss you. Barbara

      My last night with Dad was very hard. And we hadn’t slept in 3 days. As the night went on and he got worse I became more worried. I said to him,” Dad we need to call the ambulance”. He just kept saying we will but not until morning. I do not want to go to the hospital tonight. It was the only time in my care of dad that he refused to go to the emergency room. He was in pain and so sick to his stomach. At about 3:30 a.m. he was not complaining of pain anymore. I sit by his bed and we talked and laugh for a long time. It could have been anywhere from 1to 2 hours. I asked him how he felt he said good except for a little bad in his stomach but not much. We had a great talk together but I did eventually tell him that I was going to bed. We need it to try to get some sleep. I went to bed and prayed asking God not to keep him here because it was what I wanted but please don’t let him go until there was confirmation that he would go to heaven. I did not pray out loud but even so Dad would not have heard me. Dad was almost completely deaf. When I finished praying I could hear dad praying. He was exulting the Lord with many words of praise to the lord. He then begin confessions of sins and shortcomings of his own. I could not hear all he was saying because of the oxygen unit and heater that were on in the room. I did hear him saying not my will Lord but yours at the end of his prayer. I was so thankful for that spiritual confirmation and was able to drift Off to sleep. I was only asleep for 10 to 15 minutes when Dad called my name. I went to him very quickly. I knew something was wrong. He was now completely out of his head and no longer present in our world. Within 10 minutes he had a heart attack. His last coherent moments were spent in prayer with the lord. He always told me he wanted to die warm in his own bed. As far as I am concerned that is what he did. He took his last breath in the ambulance. His last memory was being in his warm bed. Thank you God for allowing me to hear dad’s prayer. Thank you that he was at home with family that love him. You are a loving God and there is no doubt in my mind that dad walks with you in heaven today as you did in the beginning with Adam in the garden. I pray through your love and your blood as you were sacrificed on a cross at Calvary that one day I will be there to walk with you and Mom and Dad in your heavenly garden. I miss you Dad everywhere I look in my house I see you. Sometime John’s hears you talking late at night. Gabriel goes to your bed and ask for you. Noah forever the preacher has talks with Amber about you being in heaven. Dad if I could bring you back I wouldn’t because I know you are safe and happy with the lord. I miss you for now but I will see you again. Love you from your kiddo (Di)
