He Died

We left my house today at 12:00.  Cathy wanted to leave at 12:30, but I thought we should leave at noon.  Well, we got there at 12:40.  He died at 12:50.  Had we left at 12:30, we wouldn't of been there in time.

What an experience this has been for me.  I have never watched a person take their last breathe.  Today, I did.  He didn't gasp, or anything,  he just stopped breathing.   The preliminary arrangements are for the visitation to be Friday and the funeral on Saturday morning.  We live just across from the church.  I will be there for both.  What a sad, sad day.  You know my dad died almost two years ago.  It was very, very sudden.  He wasn't sick or anything, he had a massive heartache on the golf course.  No warning or anything.  No machines or anything.  No cancer or anything.  He didn't suffer like Cathy's dad.  Thank goodness !!
