Remembering Poppa Al
Dad decided. Live long, die fast. Although we all wanted him to make it to 100 years, he decided he had had enough and fortunately, retired from this place before pain had the opportunity to take over. Dad was always in charge.
It is so hard to believe that a year ago we sat in his assisted living facility singing Christmas caroles together. No kidding. He knew every word.
He was an incredible man. We had a rough start together, but finished beautifully. In the hospital before he passed on, he whispered to me, "I am happy". Can you think of a better frame of mind to leave this earth with?
Thank you for your prayers.
