A day of mourning

I don’t think I mentioned it in any of my previous posts, but my Grandpa E. was scheduled to have surgery on Thursday of last week to repair damaged blood vessels and increase bloodflow to his lower body.  However, due to some miscommunication, the surgery was post-poned and took place on Monday evening instead.  He came through surgery just fine, however, suffered a heart attack early this morning after complaining of the severe pain. 

He was kept on life support for a brief time, until it appeared that he was going into cardiac arrest again, when the family made the decision to follow his wishes and let him pass peacefully.  As I write, a thousand thoughts are coursing through my head.  I think of all the things I will miss about him and all the things he will miss.  My heart goes out to my grandma, my dad, my aunts, uncles and the countless others who touched and were touched by Grandpa’s life.  My constant prayer is to see him again in heaven someday! 

Here are a couple of pictures of “Great” Grandpa Ewing and Calder.  We love you and miss you!!
