Dad is Gone

Last night I left the hospital and we went to our friend's house to play cards. At about 2a.m. we got up to leave but sat back down for a talk on 2:40 my Mom called to tell me Dad had died. Todd and I left the boys with Laura and Aaron and went to the hospital. We gathered around Dad's bed side and all said good-bye and a prayer. and then we went home. It was horrible. We got home about 4:30 and I slept until about noon when we went to Mom and Dad's to talk about funeral and obituaries...what we want and what we don't. I could go my whole life without feeling like this. Ethan teared up and puckered out his little lip and asked if Granpa had left him a good-bye. We said that he did and then Ethan was fine. Lane hasn't asked any questions but I don't think he'll really get the difference until everyone goes home and Granpa still isn't here. We as a family are too young for this. I'm 26, my Mom is 55 my boys are 5...this sucks. I want life to go back to normal.

I am so sorry. You and your family are in my prayers and I'm sending much love your way. If you need me, I can come over or I am gonna be home. My phone is always on too.
