Dad's at peace

We just wanted to let everyone know, that Dad is now at peace. He passed away just after 8pm with his family around him. We feel at peace knowing he is not in pain and he was able to complete the things he wanted to accomplish. We love him and are very grateful for the time and memories he have with him.
We plan to have the funeral on Monday the 18th. We will give more info when we have it.
We want to thank everyone for all your love and concern.

The Time is Near

We called hospice yesterday and they informed us that we had 3-4 days. They said he would be bed ridden and most likely go into a coma. Kirk and I just walked him to his bed for the last time. Dad wanted to look out the windows first. His breathing is getting very labored and we feel the end is near. Once again we thank you for your love and prayers. We appreciate your support and concern. As we struggle at this time we are clinging together as family and trying to stay strong. We were able to go out for a nice dinner as adults on Saturday and have some good quality time to last us through time. Thank you once again we will keep you posted.

Quick update

Last night I had a little voice telling me I needed to update this. As a family we have had a lot of fun and excitement, and then there has been some questioning and wondering as well. To start with the fun, Las Vegas was great. We had some fun in the pool, on the strip, and Dad had fun taking a small plane ride over Las Vegas. After coming home on Wednesday the 6th, Gary and Celeste had their new baby boy, and named him Mac. He is a cutie. Yesterday (Friday) Dad had to go in and get whole blood. He's been thinking he was getting pleurisy on his other lung, but while at the doctors, they did some blood tests and said it looks as though he has an infections. They said if there is things we need to do, then get them done quick. As you can imagine we understand things could move very fast. We are all trying to process this, and figure out what to expect. I'm not sure what else to say, so please keep in touch and I will update as to what we think may happen.

RSVP for retirement party

My dad was asked today to have a guest list sent to the base for his retirement party. They said it would be easier and quicker to do it this way. We are just asking you to call or e-mail us if you are planning on coming. You can e-mail to please title it "retirement" so if I don't recognize you I will still open it.
Thanks for all your help.
