If you do pray I want to ask prayers for my Pop. My Mom passed away Sunday. They were 11 days from their 60th wedding anniversary. My Pop is a tough 82 year old. He had my Mom at home through her 6 year journey through Alzeheimer's. He insisted that she stay there.
He told me this is the toughest thing he has ever done. This is a man that was in both the Korean war and Viet Nam. 2 purple hearts, two bronze medals with valor. Hardcore. He was a paratrooper with over 100 jumps and he jumped into North Korea during the war. He has told my sister in the last couple of weeks that he's lonely. Knowing that both of my parents are Christians have really helped us out through this time. I'll be headed to Texas on Wed for the funeral and time with family. So if you do pray, remember to say one for my Pop Jesus. __________________ Sometimes being an adult gets in the way of being a kid.
