Dad's last words "It is over!"

Apr 26, 2009 - 7 comments

My dad FINALLY got to meet Jesus this afternoon.  He was talking off & on all day & he kept asking us to pray & then at the end when my siblings, spouses & his wife were all there he said "it is over" & about 15 minutes later he was gone.  Now he can breath easier!  Strange how such a happy time can be so very sad.  I will miss you terribly but I am so happy you are at peace!

My condolences on the passing of your dad. He sounds like he was perfectly at peace! How wonderful!  No more pain and an end to his sufering. May memories of your father comfort you through this sad yet joyous time. My thoughts and prayers will continue for you and your family's comfort and sense of peace.

Hugs,
Ren

May God be with you and your family now more than ever, and may you feel His presence each step of the way.  Call on those willing to help you; it is a challenge to let go of any loved one.

I am so sorry for your loss and sadness.  I, too, got to be with my dad when he took his last breath.  I remember the sense of joy in knowing he was finally with our Lord and Saviour and the sadness that he was no longer with me physically.  My dependence on God during that time was a great source of strength and I pray that you, too, can find comfort in God and knowing that He knows your sorrow and pain.  I will be praying for you and your family during this time.  God Bless you.

Janette,

You were right.  The last time you posted a journel you said it wouldn't be long.  I am so glad that your father is at peace.  God bless YOU sweetheart, with peace of heart, knowing that while your Daddy's passing leaves a void in your life, he is in a grand place, I am sure.

My prayers are with you, Janette.  Always!

Lots of Love and Hugs,
Heather

P.S.  My prayers and love are with you also, Pastor Dan, in the loss of your beloved wife, Loretta.  God be with you both during this time of sorrow.
