On yesterday's post -
My sister just got a call from Suzanne and the coroner has ruled that cause of death was a burst aorta - a congenital, genetic weakening that chose this moment to burst.
All of the men on both sides of the family are to be tested, because it could have been treated had it been known - but it's not something routinely checked, I guess. So incredibly sad.
Ryan and Emily are supposed to leave for their 3-year aviation mission assignment in Alaska a week from Monday. Ryan was to speak Sunday at their send-off service. The funeral is Saturday, but I don't know the time yet. It will be at a very large church in the town north of us, because we don't have enough room in our church.
I just keep thinking of Dan going to bed that night and waking up in heaven. It is the only comforting thought right now - and the fact that he obviously did not suffer.
Thanks for your comments and your prayers.
