My father-in-law was having coffee with a friend and he just collapsed, with a heart attack. The paramedics could not revive him.
Friday night was just surreal. Phone calls in, phone calls out, constantly. After about 5 hours, things settled down a bit.
Stunned, we were just stunned. No other way to describe it.
Alan has traveled to be with his siblings. They have so much to do and plan. Alan's stepmom lives in a nursing home, due to a past acute illness. So it is up to Alan and his siblings to do the funeral planning, go through much personal and business paperwork and try to figure things out. Prayers are needed in this area. So much is unclear at this time, in the area of sorting through paperwork, and where to find this or that.
The kids and I will travel soon to be with family for the funeral.
We ask for prayers for now and in the coming days for the family. Each day it becomes a little more real. I know there will be tough times ahead, and I'm sure we will not feel or know the entire scope of what we will experience for some time.
Thank you so much.
