Thanks for praying. There was no heart attack. Cardiac enzymes are normal. Will follow up with family doctor and cardiologist on Monday.

Yesterday was day of sad relief in our family.

My father in law passed away at 3;10 PM at the age of 92, 11 months and 13 days.

My son and family were on the way home from summer vacation and it really seemed like he waited for Jaxon, His only great grandchild, to see him.

When Jax walked in the room with his dad at about 2:45PM  "Gido" opened his eyes. Jax took his hand and said "Gido I will see you again in heaven"! Gido passed away very peacefully, about 15 minutes later. Jax is 3 years and 7 months old.

Gido only started to lose mental capacity in the last 6 months along with the deterioration of most of the bodies functions. While he did not suffer long and kept his sense of humor till about the last 10 days when talking pretty much ceased, we are very happy and thankful that he passed peacefully.
 
Gido was a farmer and logger. In his early adult life he farmed in the summer and logged in winter.

He was a faller and cat operator in the McBride area of BC for about 15 years. I still have his old falling Chain saw.

Gido and GG (great grandma) would have been married 64 years this October.

A life well lived! A legacy that will not soon be forgotten.

My daughter in law is planning the memorial lunch and a requirement for the guests is they all must steal at least one bite of food from someone elses hand.

That was Gidos trade mark at ALL family gatherings. The very first time he met Melissa (Jaxon's Mother) he was next to her at the table for dinner and he stole a piece of garlic bread out of her hand before she even got a bite out of it. Nothing was safe on any plate at the family table where Gido was a guest.

Gido made sure he taught Jax to do it just as well. The tradition will live on for many years to come!

I thank all in advance for your prayers of comfort.

You have our prayers, Gido sounds like one heck of a character, someone I'd like to have known.  Prayers and condolences sent, may he rest in peace.

Our 53 year old Daughter Donna underwent a double mastectomy Monday and she got the Pathology report today.  The cancer was detected in her lymph nodes, so her next Doctor visit (Monday) will be with an Oncologist.  Please Pray for Donna's recovery from his dreadful disease.

Will do MM. Sometimes I wonder why God gave us such things and then I remember. It's to bring us to our knees. And there we accomplish much.

So sorry to learn what you folks are going through.  Stay positive, if possible.  I'm a firm believer that being positive helps. Mary and I are praying for Donna, Pat and Lynn and the whole Davis family. It's obvious that there is lots of support coming from your FF family.  Our best.

 Sorry to hear this. Words of encouragement. My Oncologist says that breast and myeloma are the most studied cancer's and more money is spent on these than all the rest combined. And prayer's do help. I pray for all my friends here on the FF.
