In Loving Memory

Heaven has received another angel. My father in-law passed away this past Sunday at 1:20 p.m., surrounded by his loving family, and passed away peacefully in his sleep.

We were all there with him before he went to sleep, and were able to tell him we love him dearly and to be sure to “swing ’em straight and stay out of the cat box”. Popo (pronounced Pop-O) wrote his final words on a piece of paper before passing away, “Love ya’ll always, Popo”, and I will cherish that forever.

His online obituary is available for those who would like to read it, as my husband requested I not post it in it’s entirety here. I am posting one of Popo’s favorite songs, “Go Rest High On That Mountain”, that will be played during his service tomorrow.

Popo, we miss you already, but we know you are in God’s loving hands now and are having a grand ol’ time playing golf with Mamo again. Until we see you again, we love you dearly.

    Thank you for your kind words of encouragement. Popo was a dear, sweet man who was always kind and loving towards me even though I only knew him for seven years.

    I hold onto the memories of our time together, and the funny/silly things he would say and do. He always would play the game where he’d pretend something was on your shirt collar and when he got you to look down, he’d lightly tap you on your nose in fun. 🙂

    His loss is a great one, but we are coping the best we can by our memories, and there are many.

    Thank you Arnold, we were all pretty surprised when it did happen. I mean, we knew it was coming, we just didn’t expect it was going to happen when it did. We are glad he went so peacefully, without pain or suffering in any way.

    Thank you Kim. We’re doing as best we can be expected, and thank you for the prayers.

  6. My condolences, Lin. I lost my own FIL in 2003. We were closer than I thought.

    Thanks RT. It’s been hard but we’re dealing with it. Everytime my husband’s cell phone starts ringing, we momentarily think it’s “Popo” calling. sigh…
