One Saturday, after my weekly piano lesson, Daddy called Mom and I into the bedroom. He had been very weak with heart problems. He told us he would
die that night. He also said not to worry, he knew he was right with God and he would go to Heaven. Mom told him he wasn't going to die. He
reaffirmed, "When the sun comes up in the morning, I will be gone."
He sent mom out and told me he loved me, that I should take care of Mom and finish school. (I was only 15 at the time.)
Then he sent me out and called Mom. They had 7 big photo albums of all the things they had done since their marriage. They talked through their life
Then Daddy was tired and took a nap. We didn't know what to do or what to expect. It was a long afternoon and evening. We sat in the living room
with the TV on, but we didn't pay any attention to it.
Eventually, it was late and I went to bed.
About 4:00am Mom woke me. Daddy was in distress He was struggling to breathe. Mom wanted to call the rescue squad, but Daddy was adament. He was
going to die, he didn't want to waste money on something that wouldn't do a bit of good. Mom pleaded and finally told me to keep him busy while she
ran to the other end of the house to call for help.
While she was gone, I stood at the foot of the bed and saw a very strange thing. I could see that physically Daddy was in a lot of pain, but when I
looked into his eyes, he was at peace. Then the light in his eyes went out.
As the rescue squad rolled his lifeless body out of the house, the eastern sky was just starting to brighten.
How did he know?
Would you want to know?
What would you do it you knew you had less than 24 hours to live?
