Lost my father today

My father went on to Heaven today at about 11:55AM. He was 93. He started me mushroom hunting when I was too little to walk. He and my mom began hunting mushrooms in northern Michigan in 1958. Been going back most years ever since. We knew he wouldn't last forever - still a shock.

Thanks all. He had been anxious to go for quite a while. Very sharp mentally to the end. Asked for me on Sun. morning - got a text while at church. Got there - my sister said, "Dad, Lowell's here." He was gone in about a minute. His last gift to me was to wait for me to arrive.

So sorry to hear of your loss. But what a special gift he gave. A father's love is a powerful thing.
Prayers for comfort for all the family.

It took me awhile to be able to post on this, my apologies. It is still too hard/fresh for me (and my Dad has been gone for 30 years). My heart goes out to you and my prayers. It is good that he was ready to go though.
