Thank you for the prayers

Dear Parents, 

I have been in Arkansas with my family since last Friday when we moved my Dad to the Hospice House. He is progressively getting weaker and it looks like within a couple of days he will finally be at home in heaven. My brother, mother, and I made the funeral arrangements and it is a relief to have that behind us. When awake he is still cognitive and aware, so we have all had the opportunity to express our love and appreciation and say our good byes, even though he can only communicate with a slight head nod or hand squeeze. Many folks have stopped by and expressed what a good man my dad has been and how he "walked his talk."  I can honestly tell you that I understand the love of my Heavenly Father because of the example of unconditional love combined with loving discipline and encouragement from my earthly father. What an honor to have a godly father. Please pray that he soon has a peaceful passing from earth to heaven. 

I am not sure when I will be back on campus but I am thankful for the ability to communicate with email. I am responding to emails when time allows and thank you for understanding if you receive a delayed response. We are blessed to have an excellent professional staff at Rock Creek and I am thankful for everyone of them. Your children are in very good hands!
