Thank you for all the prayers, I'll come in here and update up until monday, then it's off to the funeralWell, Joe left around 1 this afternoon to get down there. Its only about a 3 and a half hour drive. Today I had to run around getting my car reregistered, and insured and all that, looks like I get it inspected on monday, and then down there I go.
Ive been hanging around here today(this board), it's helping me through this, I am alone with my 2 year old, and I'm not breaking down much. His mom is trying to hang in there. I'm devastated that he's gone, I can only imagine what my mother in law is going through,they were married for 29 years, and then finding him, gone... I told my daughter Pappy went by by like Meema(my mom), she said "like aunt barbie?" Aunt Barbie died 3 years ago-she never knew her. Kind of reassuring to know that he's around good people.
For a little while last night, I caught a glimpse of exactly what it was like in his last minutes, I could feel the pressure in my chest, and kind of saw what he saw. Joes been feeling someone hugging him, but the most important thing is Joe and his dad were on very good terms. We all were that knew him best, so... I guess that will help with the healing.
I'm not sure how to take this, I want to be strong for them, but at the same time, I feel like I lost my dad, I was closer to him than my own dad...
