    Subject: Norman's Promotion

    Dear Family and Friends:

    This morning at 6:50 Norman was promoted to his Heavenly home. He had been in decline for about three weeks. We had prayed often that the Lord would take him quickly and quietly, and he did go quietly, but clung to this life so long. For about the last three weeks, our four daughters kept 24-hour vigil, taking turns sleeping on spare davenports in the facility and sitting at his bedside. They insisted that I sleep at home and spend the days at his bedside. Yesterday (Friday) morning, they called me because his breathing was slowing down, and I was at his facility until he passed this a.m. I slept a short while from midnight until Karen awoke me about 6:30, saying his breathing had really slowed. I quickly put on my shoes while I ran back to his bedside. By the time I got to his room, he was gone. As I passed by the nurses' station about twelve of them came out to give me a loving hug. Norman had been there nearly two years and I came for daily visits, so we came to know and love the staff. And they loved Norman SO much. Many of the residents do not talk much, but Norman maintained his usual friendly, considerate self as long as he was mobile, and won their hearts.

    In case some of you haven't known of his illness, he had Parkinson's Disease since the early '90s, and had a stroke nearly two years ago (an MRI indicated he had had a stroke earlier that we had not known about) which immobilized him.
    Since that stroke he lived in the Health Care Center in our village and had kind and loving skilled care.

    We are planning a memorial service to celebrate his life next Saturday, the 19th, at 2:30 p.m. in the chapel in our village.
    If you want to come and need directions, please contact me. My email address is: norjoy2@peoplepc.com, and my phone number is 619-479-9980.

    Of course we will miss him terribly, but we don't sorrow as those without hope. We have a Heavenly Home awaiting us, and it is even more wonderful than the expensive homes in San Diego! We know the best is yet to come!

    Rejoice with us about Norman's promotion!

    Lovingly in Him, with hope and a song in our hearts,
    Joyce and Family
