    Default Rest in Peace, Sarge

    We lost Sarge today. 😢

    From Sarge's son....

    This is Dale again for those who aren't on my friend list or who didn't catch the news by now.


    Dad died. Right before I got there, he died the first time. As I was entering the hospital, but right before i got to his room. They performed CPR, but he came in a coma, and he had organ failure. There was no saving him. I stood over him as he passed, I don't even know if he knew I and the family were there.


    I know he knew we were coming down, and that made him real happy. My last phone conversation with him I told him i loved him and that I was proud of him. I know my last words to him made him happy.


    There was a time I didn't how him and I would end things, and i won't go into detail here. Past is past. And I know he died my father, a man who made me proud. A man well loved by his family and friends.


    In so many ways, there have been so many blessings. And I am so very thankful for those blessings. For him and for my family.


    I can't even get into all the blessings, some things are hard to talk about mainly out of respect. But they are blessings, and cause to smile.


    It has been one hard week in so many ways. And in other areas, supr hard. My life challenges are just beginning. I will be going on food stamps, I have no idea where I will be living in a couple of months, and it won't be a great living situation but I am hoping for something decent. But it will be rough, so very rough.


    But, the blessings are going to continue. I will remind myself and my mother of this.


    And in spite of what people think, I couldn't have done this without God. None of this, at least most of the blessings, would have happened without God.


    God doesn't pick and choose who He helps. We don't get to see the why's, and there is some answers in the Bible if people would read the darn thing and accept it for what it is, the Word of God. That goes double for Christians.


    I am not trying to preach, I am just saying that, you will never see proof of God until you are willing to see. And willing from the heart.


    I can never show any of you the proof, but boy, can I see it and feel it on a deep level.


    Again, I am not trying to convert, I am just sharing my thoughts and feelings. I believe in free choice after all.


    God bless you guys, and thank you so much for your awesome support.


    Some of you have been my awesome friends, and some of you were dad's awesome friends who are now my awesome friends.


    Take care, guys.

    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    Well, I'm sorry to hear that. My condolences...I've said a little prayer for him, and without going in to religion too much otherwise, I'll keep sarge in my thoughts next time I'm reading the good book.

    Sarge was a true survivor...all the way through his ordeal. I was particularly impressed by his upbeat posts during his last days. The average person would have been struck numb by his prognosis, but not him!

    Rest in peace. Prayers for him and his family...

    I've been dreading logging in for fear of hearing this news. RIP, Sarge. You will be sorely missed here, and my condolences go out to his family and friends.
