Sad news today

I have very bad news.

I just got an e-mail from Anny the youngest daughter of my uncle Arnold. She told me that her father and my Uncle had passed away peacefully in his sleep today, Thanksgiving day, at @ 12:3o.

I believe his eldest daughter Suzy was by his side. She has been faithfully sitting by his side for a while now keeping him company while his health declined. He was in the hospice hospital at the end.

Please take a moment and say a prayer for Arnold's family and his wife Vi during this time. Or if you like spare a good thought or two, or maybe light a candle if that is your belief (This link goes right to a virtual candle lighting site.)

Thank you everyone and God bless.

I'm so sorry about your loss.

Dear Janice ~~ Deepest sympathy to you and the family of your uncle. It was nice he went quietly in his sleep. He wouldn't want you to be too sad. I hope your Thanksgiving was terrific.
Take great care, my friend, Love, Merle.

Blessings to you Janice. Prayers for your family. I'll be praying for joy through the holidays.

Hi Jeanette, Thank you.

Hi Kristen, Thank you.

Hi Merle, I am thankful too that he went in his sleep. Funny thing but on Thanksgiving my daughter and I didn't have much of an appetite and we both felt a little off. I found out later that he died at about the same time we had sat down to eat.

Hi Bethanne, I do appreciate the prayers that means a lot to me.

Take care everyone,

Hi Jen, Yes as much as it sadens me to lose him, he isn't in any pain anymore.
