Farewell.....we'll see you in Heaven.

My friend and FIL drew his last breath on earth and his first in Heaven yesterday at 5:12 p.m. with all of us by his side. My SIL, pictured here with my FIL, MIL and husband got here Tuesday and got to spend the final day with him.
We will miss him always, but I am thanking our merciful God that the suffering is over and he is breathing easy today.

I am so sorry, Nancy. Please relay my condolences to your husband and the rest of the family. You know he's with the angels now and is not only breathing fine but also probably singing in the choir, too. Rest in peace, dear FIL of Nancy. Blessings. :)

I am so sorry, Nancy, for the loss of your FIL. I know that you have been expecting it, but it really doesn't make it much easier when it actually happens.

Our consolation is that we know that we will all be together again in His glory.

My prayers will be with you as you go forward - especially in the coming week with the celebration of a well lived life. Hugs.

Nancy, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. But so happy to think that your FIL has seen Jesus! O what a joy! I know this will be a hard time for the family, so glad you could be with him at the end. I will keep you and your family in my prayers and ask God to give you all an extra measure of His peace. My heart is with you.

Hi, Nancy: I saw you over at Leslie's and followed the link. I live in Punta Gorda, FL off and on through the year. Also live in Oklahoma. Just thought I would drop by.

Sorry to hear about one you love passing on. But he is in good hands now! Sending happy thoughts your way.
