R.I.P. Lee

Sunday, February 03, 2013

I blogged a few days ago about being in a downward spiral due to family and friend issues.

Well, this one I didn't anticipate, although I probably should have. My father-in-law passed away Friday morning. He had been in and out of the hospital a few times in the past few weeks and had dementia, but he was such a jovial person. He was 86 years young. Anyway, several years ago before his dementia got bad he had some health problems and he said, "Well, I've had a great run. I've got no complaints." He lost two wives to cancer and still he kept going and raised 3 kids. This was such a neat perspective, especially compared to my own parents who are the most negative people I know.

I sure hope that when my time comes I can be as cool about it as my father-in-law.

Rest in Peace, Lee.

    I'm sorry for your loss. It sounds like your Father-in-law was in great spirits in spite of his health. Maybe in some way he was an inspiration to you. God bless you and your family in this time of need. May the Lord wrap His arms around you and let you know that He is the Comforter.

    I am sorry for your loss. It is good that he had such a good attitude. I pray I can adopt that attitude as well.
