Soldiers Grove Wi. 54655
It's never easy to lose a parent but we knew it was coming since my Dad was 93 years old and for the last couple months I had been staying overnight and helping my sister watch over him. A happy man all his life who was always there to lend a hand, invite the new people to the neighborhood, stayed ahead of the norm as he was one of the first ones in our part of the county to have a step saver, then a pipeline and go Grade A at our local Co-op. I could go on but the last 11 years since my mother passed I've enjoyed every moment I could with him and the most special were when we were in the field together and when I took him fishing. I could go on and on but he had a peaceful passing with all of my sisters and I by his side and was in no pain except what was managed by Hospice the last day and 1/2. He and my mother were married just about 65 years when she passed and we have so many fond memories of both of them. Heaven was ready for him and I'm sure I"ll have another Gaudian Angel watching over me....
