Arnold Seagraves passing

I have very bad news.

I just got an e-mail from Anny the youngest daughter of Arnold Seagraves. She told me that her father and my Uncle Arnold has passed away peacefully in his sleep today, Thanksgiving day, at @ 12:3o.

I believe Suzy was by his side. She has been faithfully sitting by his side for a while now keeping him company while his health declined. He was in the hospice hospital at the end.

Please take a moment and say a prayer for Arnold's family and his wife Vi during this time. Or if you like spare a good thought or two, or maybe light a candle if that is your belief (This link goes right to a virtual candle lighting site.)

Thank you everyone and God bless.

(((((((((((((((((A correction))))))))))))))))

Hi Janice - just a small correction, Dad (Arnold) was at home where he had been living with Dave, Tukey, Mike, Ruth, Georgia, Maya, Kendra and for the last 4 months me (Suzy). He passed knowing that his family all love and charish him. We are thankful for all the kind words, thoughts, and prayers we have received from so many. Hospice was wonderful, coming to the house to monitor his progress through the transition. Dad went his own way and in his own time. I would not have given up the last 4 months of caring for him for anything. It has been a gift to me.
