It ain't easy lettin' go, but do not

feel bad about praying that she will soon come to rest. When my dad was dying of kidney cancer a few years ago we were praying for his healing. But as it became more clear that this was not going to happen we asked the Lord to not let him suffer any more but to take him quickly. The night before he died he told me, "Paul, I won't be here much longer. I can hear the Lord calling me." The next morning he passed away about 15 minutes before I got back to his room. It's not easy letting go, but sometimes we have to. I, too, wish I'd learned more from him, and grandpa, and - the list goes on - before they passed away. Still, I live each day the way he taught me and thank the Good Lord for the example they set.
