Dad Is in Heaven Now

Dear Blog Friends,

Dad died this morning around 2:00 AM of natural causes.  His breathing had been weak lately.  The nurses gave him oxygen for the last couple of days but it didn’t help much.  I could see and feel that the life force was slipping from him.  Dad told people he knew, “I am going to Heaven pretty soon.”

And he did just that!

Dad and God are together now.  It’s going to be quiet this holiday season.  My closest friends – more like family – and I are going to be hanging out for Thanksgiving. Add another pound or two to the belt.

Here is some good news.  Much to my surprise, I got a call from work and they are going to wait for me to return and will help me get back on board.  I sure lucked out… Then again, this new job is working for one of the top rated employers in the country.

I’m sure going to miss Dad a lot!  He was awesome!  I thank God for giving Sis and I so many extra days to be with him right up until the end.  He’s in a better place now.

Take care.

Bradford, Serena, and Jesse James
