Wanted to jot this down

We all went to visit Logan's "great pa" in the hospital the day before he passed away. We saw him around afternoon, and he passed away that night. We had preped Logan for what he would see by telling him that greatpa would have an oxygen mask on, for air, just like firefighters. He seemed fine when we entered the room, and even wanted the wife to pick him up, so he could see greatpa better.

In the car on the way there, Logan had commented on how pretty the sky was, and that he was going to tell greatpa about it. The wife said that was fine, that maybe greatpa didn't have a window.

In the room, when the wife lifted him up, he looked down at greatpa and said "The sun came up today. It was a good day".

I hope to hear something that calming before I go.

    That was beautiful. We all hope for this and the best way to get it - is to make sure we are the givers of it whenever possible. =O)

    Great post...and great words from Logan.

    My sympathies to your family too. Hang in there.
