He Is Finally Resting Easy

Last November 7th I wrote about my daughter Susan's ex-husband David Pickels,  father of two of my grandchildren. He had just been informed that he was near the end of his life. Cancer had spread everywhere and there was little that doctors could do for him. Well, he hung on and had chemo and radiation treatments that may have slowed the cancer. We will never know for certain.  He was medicated to the point that he had very little pain over these recent months, but he was surely uncomfortable. When he died this morning it was a relief. He finally found peace, comfort and rest.

Soft and safe to thee David, be thy resting place.

I am sorry for your family's loss. Very tough when it's someone young and they seem to be going too soon.

I remember that post. I remember seeing the picture of David and his son and it stirred up the tears I still cry when I remember watching my father die 18 years ago.

I know the pain is not lessened simply because he was an ex to your family. May God comfort your grandkids and your entire family.

I'm sorry to hear this Dixon. I hope you can take comfort in the fact he left you wonderful grandkids.
