At about 5:55 AM as I was finishing my shift and waiting to punch out I got a call that Dad was going to the hospital.

Fifteen minutes later I got another call; he was gone.

Except for his paralysis he was healthy until the end. This is more of a shock than my mother's death because she was semi-comatose for about 3 months and we knew it was close.

I saw Dad and was laughing with him just a few days ago.

Oh, Shoprat, I'm SO sorry to hear about this. It's fitting that you'd post his picture in military uniform on this Memorial Day, a day you didn't think would be quite so poignant this year, did you.
God bless you and your family, Shoprat...and may your dear Dad rest in peace.
We thank him for his service.

Oh, Shoprat! I'm so sorry to read this.

In going back through some of your posts, I've realized that you've lost both parents within a few months of each other.

You must be feeling beaten down.

Praying for you. 6/3/2011
