Hospice


We are driving home from Memphis. It's late. It's been two nights in a row that we have done this. We moved my grandfather to hospice this weekend and its been so hard on everyone. 

Actually, the time that lead up to the move was excruciating. Coming to grips with the fact that he was going to die. His 4 sons and their families have had to let go. 

My Paw Paw is ready. He is resting comfortably and is in no pain. We are praying that he will go to Glory soon. 

We made my Daddy go out for dinner tonight and I'm pretty sure that his 4 grandchildren brightened his day. My Dad has cried, a lot, over the past few weeks. It did my heart good to see him smile tonight. 

(I hope these pictures show up. The last time I posted from my phone it was awful. Let me know if you can't see the pictures.)

  3. Kate- mr Coy & Mrs Jeanette were 2 of the first people we met at FBC 10 yrs ago. Mr Coy holds a special place in my heart. He fought a good fight and now he is with his Lord & Savior. I know the family is hurting - as is his friends. I have shed tears for y'all this morning & will keep you iny prayers. He was an awesome Godly man.
