My darling husband, Ronnie, left to go to heaven a week ago today, May 18th. He had been in the hospital the week before with pneumonia and a UTI. Tested for Covid, but negative. This was his first hospitalization. Thankfully, he was released on Friday (we were not allowed to be with him at all In the hospital), and spent two days enjoying the three children, 6 grandchildren, all his favorite things (firing the civil war cannon he directed our sons in law to restore, enjoying homemade peach ice cream, and so much more). His funeral was beautiful, attended by family and a handful of his very close friends. Graveside ceremony was beautiful, ending with the playing of Our Song, “Through The Years” by Kenny Rogers, a bagpiper playing Amazing Grace, and firing of the cannon. We miss him so very much, but know he is walking and talking, and enjoying being with his Dad in heaven.
My prayers continue to be lifted for the brothers and sisters who continue to suffer from this horrible disease.
