today mother has been gone 1 year, she is missed. Phyllis and  I were talking at supper about our parents. there is know dought as to where they are. Heaven is a real place, its not just a story in a dusty old book. Its light is Jesus, He went on ahead to prepare a place for you, all you have to do is take it. A place where there is rest, stress free, no sin, etc.

 I spent the morning taking care of Dads social security, laundry, dishes and getting Phyllis' van to the shop, met Michael and took Phyllis out for supper, Ihop. A prety good day.

Dad 2/19/2013 Arrangements

Dad passed away today at 1045 AM. I knew his bath lady was coming so I had him medicated so he would be pain free when she came. Doris came about 1015, I helped change his bed and roll Dad from side to side and get him comfortable after the bath. She left about 1040 and I went to check on Dad, I saw he was going, I went to get some more medication and returned in time to see him take his last breath, he was gone. peaceful.

I called hospice and said that Dad had just passed away, and send Rosie the nurse asap. Then I called Phyllis at work and she clocked out and came home. I called Doris the bath lady and told her Dad was gone, that all being done I just sat and waited for people to arrive. Rosie came first and we made arrangements to have Dad removed from the house, (which took over a hour), I helped with that also, getting Dad wrapped up and on the back board and transfer to the gurney and out to the Hersh. The local funeral home sent one person to do it all.

Mitchell Jerdon funeral home in Mattoon would drive over to the local funeral  home and pick Dad up and take him to Mattoon on the 19th. Phyllis and I left for Mattoon on the 20th to make final arrangements

Arrangements visitation will be Friday evening from 5-7 Illinois time and funeral Saturday at 11, followed by committal, then a church dinner at the Grace fellowship church

Dad and Mom (1 year ago today 2/14/12)

Dad and Mom one year ago (2/14/12) Dad sent Phyllis and I out to get our Valintine Dinner, and bring them something back so they could have there's.

 As I got up today 2/14/13 to fix breakfast for Phyllis, I checked on Dad, breathing is very shallow, hardly mooned as we turned him. Breaks your hart to see him just laying there.
