A great day for my Dad.





My dad had special company today. My Uncle Mike came to visit with my dad with his son Michael, (son-in-law) Rich, daughter Gwen, son Brian and (daughter in law) Lisa. Gwen made a delicious dinner and my dad actually ate some of it. My dad also had a smile. I am so happy our family spent the evening with us and brought dinner, how nice that was.
Inside Wyandotte Hospital there is a mural that my cousin Gwen, who is an artist, actually worked on.
I was able to go to the visitation for Dr. Zara. They had many collages and Joel's picture was up there. They also had his lab coat on a manikin with a stethoscope around the next with tongue depressors and pens in his pocket.....how clever. I noticed Joel stuck out his lower lip in sadness when he saw Dr.'s lab coat.
One line of a poem with his picture on it said, "be sad for little while but let me go."

Oh your precious little boy. I know he'll miss him.

So glad that your dad was able to smile and enjoy his day. These are precious times and memories that you are making. So glad you're taking pictures. I would love to see you post a picture sometime of your dad when he was younger and was raising you.

Oh Lisa..how awesome that they went and spent time with your father! I can imagine how lonely it is to stay in a hospital, and then to have visitors!! Huge blessing, I'm sure!!

Oh...and your doctor..I was so glad to read that he was saved before he left this earth!!!!! I love that last line of that poem!!!! But..it will be only temporary, right?

HUGS LISA!!!!!!

I'm so glad your dad had a good day Lisa. Nothing like good home cooked food to get a person to eat. Very talented cousin you have there. And what a tender heart your son has. Just like his mom. :)
