It’s with great regrets I have to write this post.
My dad, you know him as Kramer, passed away at about 12:20am on Sunday, June 2nd.
He was welcomed into Jesus’s arms Sunday morning.
It was as peaceful as it could be. Mom and I were there with him. Every word that needed to be said was spoken.
Dad made it to Sunday – He wanted to make it until Sunday to know Gannon and Georgia would be baptized. We did baptise the babies yesterday afternoon as planned as we were all sure that he would have wanted that.
Dad fought his cancer battle for 129 days. He never once threw himself a pity party. He was Kramer strong right until the end.
Mom’s doing good. We all are. Of course we have our moments where we are crying and laughing in the same sentence. It will be some busy days here as we prepare for a Wednesday private funeral and public celebration of life that afternoon. If you’re local feel free to stop by.
Here is a link to the obituary. I’m sure some of you will want to send mom a card. Here is her address:
111 2nd Ave NE
Waucoma, IA 52171
Our family thanks all of you for going along with us on Dad’s cancer journey. Dad often said how much you treated us all like family. He loved that. As always, mom has much to say and will continue to write the blog. It is so therapeutic for her.
