Now they are together, whole and strong, and they understand everything


My husband's dad, my children's grandfather, died this morning. He had been in the hospital for the past few days, getting weaker. My wonderful father-in-law was a giant among men, one of the finest souls I have ever known, everyone's favorite as his sister said. He was my husband's hero to the end, with his big resounding laugh that never failed to get you laughing, too. I always felt as if God was in that laugh, which is to say, Love was in that laugh. Now he is reunited with his beloved, and I like to think of them up there in the blue radiance, showering grace and light on us all.

  2. May it be so. I am glad you had him. Your husband is who he is because of those two, not just genetically, but because of LOVE.
    I'm sorry he's gone.
    May the grief of his passing be eased by that love.

  10. Though it is terribly sad for those left behind, a sadness that never really goes away, I imagine death to be such a sweet relief and release for those moving on.
