Bill passed away at 7:05 last night. All the kids were down yesterday afternoon, including our brand new grandson, Michael Paul, who was born Saturday morning at 4:20 am. We all got to say goodbye and I was with him to the end. He's been getting steadily weaker and actually went quickly, which I am so thankful for. Liver Cancer is one of the most painful of the cancers -- if you can differentiate between them all -- I'm sure every kind is painful. It is extremely hard to watch someone you've loved for 29 years go through it.
We spent today making arrangements, with more to make tomorrow. I feel like I've been on the phone all day and my throat can attest to that fact -- I have a very sore throat and earache, and I'm losing my voice, which does not bode well for the Memorial services planned. Hopefully I can doctor it enough to make it through.
I'm going to miss him terribly , but I know he's in a better place.
