    Hello my MiceChat Family:

    As some of you may already know, Kristi's Dad has been in and out of the hospital since June of this year battling a combination of COPD, Chronic Heart Disease and other ailments.

    I'm sad to say that at 1:44 this morning he lost his fight.

    In the end, he died peacefully, not in his sleep, but he was heavily sedated on morphine and didn't feel any pain. He was surrounded by those who love him, Kristi, My Mother In-Law and myself.

    It was a sad thing but after he passed he looked at peace for the first time in a very long time.

    He had just come home last Friday from a 3 week hospital stay and said Friday night that he would not be going back to the hospital. There was nothing they could do for him and they were just prolonging the inevitable.

    We called Hospice on Saturday and they gave us the things we needed to make his passing peaceful.

    We were happy that Kristi got to spend one last Birthday with her Dad and we all got one last Christmas.

    Please keep us all in your thoughts and prayers this week. I'm not sure when I will be able to give further updates as I'm just home to get clothes for Kristi and I and then heading back to the house. We are staying with my Mother In-Law tonight.

    Thanks for keeping us in your thoughts during this time.

    Gregg

                            Gregg, I just wanted to give you guys my deepest sympathies and that you and the kids and especially Kristi are in my thoughts. It's hard to loose a parent no matter what. I couldn't imagine so during the holidays. But as someone who knows what its like, take comfort in the fact that he isn't suffering anymore and that always helps. If there's anything ya need just holler.

                            And yes we definitely need to get together soon. I miss you guys.
