We had gone over to see him the weekend before he passed. He was sitting up in the living room on the sofa, propped up with pillows. He was having a difficult time eating. Colin had just gotten the movie "Cars" and we brought it over to watch. My mom, sister, and I were sitting at the dinning table talking while the boys watched the movie. Marsh seemed to like it! Even though he was tired, he still managed to play around with Colin, and even picked him up for a hug before we had to go home. I know that Colin is going to miss his PopPop ... they always had so much fun together.
Although Marsh did not want a Memorial Service, my mom decided to have a small gathering where the ashes were located in Forest Lawn Cemetery in Cypress, with the Reverend who came to see him from hospice care. He said a few words and prayers and sang Amazing Grace, which was Marsh's favorite song. My mom just couldn't let him go with out something ... and I can completely understand that ... and I'm sure Marsh does too.
