Thank you everyone. I very much appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers. I can't thank each of you enough. My dad called tonight and wanted to make sure I was ok with being a pall bearer. Man, I was not ready for that.

Thanks Alex. Knowing just part of what he's seen makes me feel like I could never stand in his shoes. We're so spoiled thanks to guys like him.

To any of you that are serving now, or ever have, my hat is off to you. From the bottom of my heart...thank you for all you've done and continue to do. There are so many (myself included) who will never realize what you've been through to protect our rights and our freedoms.

Dude.. my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. No shame in tears, it means your heart is open.

Although a newbie, and this being my first post, I have came here to read and learn for many months. The knowledge and sharing that is given so freely on here is astounding. Everyone wants the other to succeed as well! It's the hallmark of a great bunch of people, and you are one of them!

Wow. Thank you so much littlejoe. It means a lot that you've left me a message. But to leave a comment about this as your first ever post really does mean alot. Thank you very much.

I took my wife and little ones down there tonight. Man, it's rough. He's slipping fast. I'm getting my older one back in town tomorrow afternoon. I'm hoping he'll get a chance to see him.

Today was the day

Just wanted to say thank you so much to all of my fellow SMF'ers.

Grandpa passed away this afternoon. My brother called me this morning and said "it's time" but it's like he's waiting for something...maybe it's you." Wow, thanks for the pressure bro. I'd already decided that I'd said my goodbyes and told him how much I loved him.

I didn't want to be there. But my guilt got the better of me and I decided to go down after lunch. As I walked in the room it was just he and my dad. My dad turned around and saw me and broke down. He said it just happened. He's gone.

Maybe he was waiting on me. I don't know. I guess nobody does. But I do know that my dad and I have never had an embrace like that. As much as I am sad, I am also relieved. No more "dying" for him (I wanted to say "pain" but I guess he really wasn't in pain since they had him pretty doped up), no more waiting for us.

I feel for my dad as he's an only child. So all this has been on him to deal with. As I was leaving he and my mom were headed upstairs to the assisted living area to tell my grandmother. She's recently been put on Hospice too. Dad doesn't think she's got a lot of time left either since she's really not eating anything.

So keep us in your thoughts, especially my dad and now my grandma.

Yes, Bill in MN, I am a man of faith. Often times it's tested and I start to question, but then I just catch myself praying even more. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. They are greatly appreciated.
