Over five years have passed since I first began sharing with you stories of my beloved father... As a preacher-man, I was blessed to live with an amazing man, one whom I love and will always adore. Forever and always he will be only one thing.
The journey of my father's life with dementia and the accompanying twelve year long goodbye is about to come to an end. My father is in his last days of life and HOSPICE was called in today to assist our family.
We are praying for a gentle, pain free passing.
The picture above was taken by my mother in 1956. My father was 26 years old at the time, a bit cocky and crazy-handsome. She told me this evening that this is how she still sees him in her heart. He would have been 84 on March 4th.
Please pray for Mom. Today was a difficult day for her and the choices she had to make just broke her heart.
Thank you for your kindness and for lifting us up to the Father. His grace and peace are covering us and we are sustained by His love.
