Goodbye, Daddy. . .

This morning my father, Ralph W. Cawthon, left his earthly body to be with Jesus. His passing was unexpected and quick.

No more dementia. No more confusion. No more paranoia. No more difficulty getting around.

I know he’s running and jumping and playing his harmonica with such joy. Even though I know he’s in a better place, my heart is hurting. I will miss you, Daddy. I love you.

He would always play this song especially for my Mom.

    That was Gran 2 years ago. She had the same thing that your father had. I had already said good by, my cousin Sarah sang her home to Jesus. Everyone kept saying how sorry they were. I told them to not be. She was back home. She has her mind back. She’s with granddad. She is home.

    How cool is that to have a video of your dad playing his harmonica. What a memory. ❤

      You’re right, Janet. I have four or five short videos of him playing different songs. I am so glad that I took the time to do that! It is such a blessing now.
