He Is With Our Heavenly Father

Let’s see if I remember how to do this still.
Hello my dear friends.  I have been MIA.  I hope y’all remember me.  Some of you may remember back when I posted about my  father in law and his dealing with Alzheimer’s.  That horrible disease. :(  Here is my previous post. and here is another previous that I mentioned my father in law and this terrible disease.
I am sad to say that he passed on April 19th, 2011.  April 19th was during Holy Week.  Someone told us that he must have been so holy himself to have passed during holy week.  I have no doubt in my mind that this is true.  He was a man of God who loved the Lord with all his heart.  He was devoted to the church and to Eucharistic Adoration every Thursday evening for years and years. 
On Easter Sunday, we attended Mass with our Mother in law and then went to have breakfast.  You see, we viewed my father in law for the first time on Easter.  The kids all understood that this year there would be no dying eggs or an Easter egg hunting.  We would spend our Easter at the funeral home.  And I am so proud to say that everyone of the children in our family behaved properly.  I am beyond proud of them all. 
Even though we were all expecting this, it is still hard.  We all took it very hard.  I was honored to make a slide show of his life.  My husband and I cried and cried every time I played the slide show for review.   Then we cried again at the funeral home when everyone watched it too.  I also had the honor of writing out his obituary.   I prayed that the Lord guide me in my words as I began to write it out and that HE did.  HE really did guide me. 
He is with our Heavenly Father now. 
May you RIP Mr. Paz.
I hope everyone is doing good.  Remember to say “I Love You” to everyone you love.   Let them know how much you love them.  Hug your loved ones.
God Bless.  I’ll be posting more often.  Thanks to everyone of you who is still following and that you have not given up on me.  May you all be blessed! 
Ta Ta For Now!

Sweet friend, Sandra~

I'm so very sorry to read about your FIL's passing. Two weeks ago my hubby and I drove to Nebraska to place his own father in long-term care. He has also been diagnosed with Alzheimer's and it's been hard on our family. Now both are father's are suffering with what we refer to as the Monster in the Brain.

I am lifting you up dear one. Knowing that the man you've loved for so long is with the Father must be a huge blessing...

Love to you...I've been missing you~

G'morn, Sandra ~
I wondered how you were & what was going on ...

Know that your precious FIL sits at the feet of Jesus, Sandra.

My MIL suffered from this dreaded horrible disease, too. My heart goes out to the entire family ... the moments they are robbed of life are so hard for those remaining to endure.

Know that life gives us each challenges to face & God is there to hold us up. I am so sorry that he & you all went thru this but I am sure your love for one another is even deeper & your precious memories are more beautiful of the days you enjoyed.

THANK YOU for your sweet comment of my note to June.

Prayers are lifting for your entire family, Sandra. All my love,

Oh Sandra I am so, so sorry for your loss. It is so hard to watch a wonderful person succumb to this disease. You will be in my prayers.

I wanted to thank you for your beautiful message you left for me. You touched my heart with your kind words.

I am so sorry for your loss and I understand very well how you are feeling. My mother-in-law died on April 15th and my father-in-law refused to eat after she died. We lost him on May 26th. It has been so much for my husband to go through at once and difficult for me after losing my own mom just a year ago. It is still a shock that they are gone and I'm sure your family feels the same. I'm sending prayers and good thoughts your way.
