I am back and if you don’t mind I will hide from the world in a blog today.
To explain the pause in my story of cutting down the family tree I will briefly tell you what has happened the last two day and then will not speak of it again until I have come to terms with the whole thing.
Sunday night about midnight Norman suffered a heart attack and was taken to the Port St Lucie hospital. Patty went with me and we stayed right by his side and when they got him stabilized they transferred Norman to Lawnwood Medical Center which has a cardiac center. Patty and I followed him there and held his hand all night. He did not improve but by 6:30 he was made comfortable and went to sleep. We took the doctors advice and went home for a short nap and something to eat about 7:30. I slept for a little over an hour and then Patty and I both wanted to get back to see Norman. We got there about 10 to find he was being attended by a team of about ten trying to bring him back and get his heart to work. We got to him and got to give him a kiss and hod his hand while he slipped away. He died at 10:30 am Monday morning. Monday was a whirl wind for me and I got through it only because of the help from Patty and Tom. Tom arrived at the hospital just before Dad died and was the rock that both Patty and I needed to keep us from falling part. Joe and family arrived yesterday morning and has taken over the job of keeping me together. Bless them for their strength. All I can say for now. I will talk to you again later, either today or tomorrow and tell you the story of “Rejected” – Gramps opinion of FDR which isn’t much difference than my opinion of Trump. Then I do want another blog to show you where my idea of cutting down the family tree came from. A poem by Gramps Brown’s cousin, I guess, called ” Why I cut down my family tree”
Have a good day
