Justin passed away on Sept. 12. The kids got to see him. I was holding his head in my arms when he took his last breaths. That is a time that is currently keeping me awake at night but I’m sure it will ease in time. Services are Friday, Sept 16, 2pm at the Road To Eternity Church in Duncan, OK.
What a difference 10 years make. Sept. 11 2001 I was a mere days from giving birth to our beautiful Olivia Marie. I spent many long hours those last few days of pregnancy watching the horror on the news and contemplating the world I was bring my child into. 10 years later, Sept. 11 2011 had me sitting in a hospital room saying goodbye to her father who had been part of my life for 25 years. We were married in September and said our final goodbyes in September. I am thankful that the cancer he was full of, did not give a chance to make him linger in pain.
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. They give me strength. Your donations allowed our children and myself to say goodbye and be with the rest of our family in a time when family is so very important. We are able to lean on each other and are all just getting through this the best we can.
Since I am on a borrowed computer I am not able to update often. Also, this takes an amount of energy that I no longer have in reserve. I’ll post when I am able. I’m sure you understand.
