Dwight is sleeping a lot, rarely waking.  It is a pleasure to watch him open his eyes and slightly smile when a staff member stops in and speaks his name. He is definitely well loved here at Mill Run and Gardens.  Staff from the office, nurses, aids, kitchen workers, cleaning ladies and one of the gentlemen from maintenance stop in often.  Some are very sad that Dwight will be leaving us soon.  Those who don't understand the joy and healing he will have in Heaven seem to be having the hardest time.  Sunday he tried to explain it to an aid.  As she says, "He let me have it." 

Thank you to all who are praying for him, myself, the children and grandchildren.  I ask that you especially pray for our precious grandchildren, that they will understand Papa is better and waiting for them.  We have purchased some excellent books to help them.  Randy Alcorn has one called 'Heaven for Kids'.  A kids version of a great book for adults, "Heaven."  It is good reading for all at anytime of your life.

Dwight is in my prayers as he transitions through this time. But you and your family, grandchildren and children are all in my prayers as well. The memories flood my heart and I truly understand the emotions that you are going through right now.

When my dad passed on, the one blessing I had was when his face went from a contorted grimace of ache and pain to a smile and radiance that was unbelievable.

I love you, Susie...take a deep breath and remember that those that share memories with you are also those that continue to hold you up in prayer.
