I waited for @ 3 hrs
for him to come home after work for supper. couldn't understand why he was so
late. Keep looking out the door & window......Thought I heard my name called
once but dismissed it??????Later I went outside and found him in the driveway(
it was about 10:00 or 11:00 at night in Dec. so it gets dark early. Ran inside
,called ambulance, grabbed a blanket & by then my daughter could hear me and
went screaming crying with me . I kind of remained calm to help him even thou I
knew. I think he had hung on just long enough to see us before we went on the
journey but clinically they said he had suffered a major heart attack & died
when he hit the ground.
