R.I.P.

The ol' Grump passes during the night........sometime after midnight when I finally lay down.
He'd had a busy day with visitors and was tired. He'd gotten up around 7:30pm to eat 2 bites of an egg and cheese biscuit the wife had cooked for him...took his pills and had his first nebulizer treatment.
When I put him to bed he wanted to keep his quilted jacket on over his PJ's and apparently at some point he got too warm, sat up on the edge of his hospital bed...took both the coat and PJ top off.......put the quilted jacked back on, buttoned it neatly and simply fell back with his feet off the bed.

Quicker than maybe we were expecting, but more gently than I expected also.

So the end or one more period of time. New beginnings for us all as we'll adjust to the absence and he to the presence of those gone on before.

So: R.I.P Carl Edward Murphy (12-18-1928 - 2-8-2011)

My deepest sympathy to you and the family. I'm grateful for the apparent ease of the passing, though. Never easy, but that makes it more so.

I've thanked those with e-mail personally. Those without one readily apparent or not on your blog.

Thank You, much appreciated.
