My stepdad Ed who raised my sister and I for most of our lives has been on hospice care for a week and half. He fell and broke his hip June 28 and really has gone down hill since then. He got covid 3 weeks ago which didnt help but did recover from that. He is 87, lived a great life and was still dragging old farmall tractors home just 6 months ago to fix up just as soon as it cools off. The hospice nurse said she believes he will pass tonight. He lives with my sister so she has been home with him the last week and half. Ed is ready to go but his strong heart is not. Several times I put my hand over his heart and it is really amazing just hard it is still beating.

If you dont mind saying a prayer for my sister. She is ready, but I know it will hit her when it does come.

Papa is still with us. I just got my guys lined out and am headed over to sit with him and my sister. Thank you all for the prayers.

I got in my truck and looked up to see this. Typically I am not a praying mantis fan but today she gets a pass

Lord, at the proper time, we ask You to receive this servant of yours Ed into Your eternal rest. If healing is not in Your will or plan Lord, make the passing sweet and easy. Give the family rest as they mourn when the time comes Lord. Ed is old School Lord and he has a drive about him that we all should be blessed to have. Encourage him Lord that he is just getting started! Once he's face to face with You Lord, give him a reward in Heaven that even he cannot imagine. Bring the family peace knowing he is one of Yours Lord, In Jesus name, Amen.

We both have told him its ok to let go and be with mom. He will reach up and my sister ask if he sees mom and will say yes.

Hes so close. His heart just wont let go. I know God has a plan but its amazing how long Papa has held on

Papa passed about 5 mins after my last post. Folks it was the most peaceful passing I have ever witnessed, with my sister and I on each side of him.
