My Dad passed yesterday. It was time. If he could be here in health to enjoy life, it would be different emotions I'm feeling. As it is, I am glad that he is no longer bedridden and unable to move. He was a good man. I am in awe of his strong constitution that held to life for so long after the health issues put him into the nursing home. I have said lately with great sincerity that I need to take better care of myself because unless I do something really stupid (accident) that it looks like I will be here for awhile. I take after my Dad in most ways physically. No service as of now, and I'm not going back to Nashville right now. In spring or summer Mom and I will go to MO, where they have their grave site already bought and the headstone set, and inter his ashes.
