We came back to Tennessee on Saturday night. We had received a call telling us that Dad would die within the next 5 or 6 hours. We had just driven about 5 or 6 from Harriman, Tennessee to Cumming with 6 small children.

We got back in the same van and headed back to Tennessee arriving at about 1 am. I then sat up all night watching Dad. He had developed the death rattle. It was horrible to listen to.

We have been sitting here now since last Sunday evening at 6 pm except for our brief run to Cumming. I missed preaching at Vision four times now.

Dad is dying but has not started what they called active dying yet. I will put a post or two about several things that I have learned from this time that I think could help each of you.

I do not know what will happen but I do know that I will do all in my power to be back at Vision this week.
