Gramps is in heaven now, he went to be with the Lord this afternoon at 4:10pm and is now dancing around in his beautiful garden in heaven. Thank you everyone for all the love and support you've shown our family through this process. ~Megan

As we prayed as a family, by Gramp's side Joel was very quiet and then as my Dad (John) was in the middle of the prayer Joel started yelling AMEN:o) What a blessing!!!

Tentatively the service will be Sat. May 9th, 11am at Bethany Baptist Church.

We are just trying to keep him as comfortable as possible now.

As we near the finals hours, the nurse told us that Gramps no longer needs his oxygen tank so at 7pm tonight we shut it off. Mom (Becky), Dad (John) and Gram will all be spending the night together tonight and caring for Gramps as we near the time for him to go to heaven.

It hurts Gramps to even hold his hand now. Today was very hard one for Grandma and tonight when I visited (Megan) I wish to forget. It isn't my Gramps anymore............................
