This past weekend we lost my father in law. He was in his second battle with cancer when it was determined that the treatments were no longer helping.
About 30 hours after he was told that they had stopped the treatments, he died.
All of his family was able to gather and say goodbye.
This week has been sad, but so very blessed in many ways.
One of my favorite pictures: dinner in the basement at the farm where we were making sausage during the annual butchering time. This picture was taken 3 years ago.
My father in law is in the blue plaid shirt.
This photo was taken at our daughter's wedding, June 2011. What a happy time it was!
We have discussed here in our home so often how words fail when someone dies.
A life is there and then it isn't.
But, so much remains to show that his life was here and mattered.
