The kind of news I don't like delivering

Just wanted to let everyone know something that I just found out this morning: Bruce's dad, my step grandpa, just died last night. He has been in Hospice for a while and not doing too well. Bruce and my mom went out to see him a couple weeks ago and he talked with them a little more than he had been talking to anyone, but they were told that since they left he hasn't said much to anyone, I don't really know if he has spoken since then. He just wasn't doing well. 

I just wanted to let everyone know a little of what is going on. Just another reminder of the frailty of life. He definitely had an interesting life and enjoyed sharing it with anyone who would listen. He had some wonderful stories and they generally got a little more far-fetched as the evening went on. I enjoyed listening to all of his stories and I am going to miss him very much. 

If you could, say a prayer for his wife, Fern, and Bruce and his sister, Dale, and for the rest of his family and friends. Thank you all.

So sorry to hear about your family's loss! I'll be praying for his wife and for Bruce ~ it's hard to lose a father!
