On A Journey To The Unknown

Yesterday afternoon, when I got back from the doctors office, my neighbor came to get me. My father-in-law had a heart attack while he was at work, and was dead by the time the ambulance got him to the hospital. He also had a great big gash on the back of his head where he had hit it on something when he fell. He was the kindness man I had ever known. It is so hard to accept him being gone. He was also a christian man. He went to church every time the church doors were open. It was so strange walking into his house and not seeing him sitting there. He died about 4:30 pm.
He had a pace maker. Appearantly, It was working, but the heart just wasn't pumping any blood.

The loss is terribly tragic and sad....I am
sorry you have to endure this of someone
you loved...

The goodness is that it was quick, most
likely painless...and he is headed to a
great place....

I know you do miss him and will miss him..

Hugs to you...
