RIP Marshall Haas

My mom's husband and my stepdad, Marshall Haas, passed away on Tuesday, Sept. 14th 2010. He had been quite ill for a while, dealing with his diabetes and pulmonary hypertension. He had been in and out of the hospital numerous times over the past year, usually due to low oxygen levels. He also had to be on oxygen 24 hrs a day. He came home from the hospital at the end of the previous week and was put on hospice care, as it was determined that there wasn't anything else that could be done for him. He passed away 3 days later, peacefully in his sleep.

He was always happy and in good spirits, never complaining about his ailments. He will be greatly missed.

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.
