In Memory of "papa"

So this week was very hard for me and my family. My step-father passed away last Friday. He was at home, which is where he wanted to be. He had only been out of the hospital for 2 days. It was an unexpected but expected death. We thought we were going to loose him last year when he was in the hospital for almost 2 months and the nurse called us in three different times thinking it was over. But, he surprised us all and we had another full year with him. Peace was made among those that needed it and for the rest of us we were blessed with an additional year with "papa" (that is what all the grand-kids called him).

In Loving Memory... Harvey "Nolan" Carrell

God saw he was getting tired,
And a cure was not to be,

So He put His arms around him
And whispered "Here, come with Me."

With tearful eyes we watched him suffer,
And saw him fade away.

Although we loved him dearly,
We could not have him stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands to rest,

God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best!

With deepest gratitude and thankfulness to all of you that have sent thoughts, prayers, flowers and cards our way.
