Its never good bye, it’s see you later.

Dad passed away tonight shortly after I posted the previous note.  He left us around 6:57pm CST.  He went peacefully, which is how he specified he would like to go.  Things are pretty down in the household tonight.  This is a very new feeling and experience for us all. Mom is doing as well as she can.  She has expressed many times how extremely happy she is that everyone made it back home for Dad – Emily, the baby Sean, and I made it from Cincinnati; Sean flew in from Seattle.  Megan was here from across the river and Uncle Robby made the trek up from North Carolina.  Uncle Robby was a great help with everything.  He has worked with Hospice before and knew what to expect and let us know ahead of time.  It was nice hearing things from a loved one instead of a nurse (although the nurses di do a great job).  Mom expressed a number of times how happy she was that Emily and I made it up with little Sean.  When she spoke to dad a few days ago, Dad said the only thing he never got to do was hold his grandson.  We made sure that happened for a long while today.  Sean laid in Grandpop’s arms very peacefully and even slept for a while.
The next few days certainly won’t be easy for any of us.  There are a lot of steps to take care of and many feelings going around. We are all happy that dad has made the next step.  He went very peacefully.  We are surely going to miss him more than anyone knows.  Colonel Lawrence Cahill Jr. will be missed be many people – Air Force, American Red Cross, Friends, Family,.  We love you Dad! Keep watching over little Sean!

    Paul & Sean,

    Greeting and hugs. It so hard to hear the news today. Me and my families thoughts go out to you and yours. My father just passed from Liver Cancer 5 months ago, and I know how hard this is. Just want you to know that we’re think about you guys, and if you need anything just ask. Congrats on the new baby Sean! He’s a beautiful boy.

    Peace & love

    Travis, Victoria & Oliver Stampley
