It’s ironic that I posted an update on Dad Cone for the first time tonight in over a month and now, here I am, just hours later with another update. But this one will be my last.
Richard Allen Cone, Sr. passed away tonight at 8:14pm.
Yes, my husband’s father died tonight in Hospice care.
Thankfully, Ricky has been in Florida since Friday and was able to spend these last few days with him. I cannot pretend to know what these next few days will bring, yet I know whatever it is will not be easy.
Tomorrow morning, I will pull my sleeping children out of bed and put them in our minivan to make the 13 hour drive down to Florida in the midst of a hurricane.
Forgive me if I sound dramatic, but the task ahead does seem a bit insurmountable.
Still, I know that it is in fact possible and more important, necessary.
So off I go to pack for the week ahead. I know I’ve asked it before, but please pray for our journey tomorrow. Pray for wisdom as I tell our children the news. Pray for Ricky, his sister, his brother, his mom and all his extended family. Pray for our everyone that will be attending the funeral that God’s name will be lifted high and that sorrow will quickly be replaced with joy.
I’ll be on the road tomorrow, but will try my best to check in as I can on here…
