Grandpa Barney

Wednesday September 23, 2009, the same day our sweet Presli entered this life my Grandpa Barney left. He passed away at the Richfield Hospital. He went into the Emergency Room Tuesday morning after a rough night. He had severe pneumonia and a bowel obstruction. They prepared my family that the end probably wasn't very far away. So Wednesday morning as I was being prepped for my c-section in St. George many of my my family members were saying goodbye to my Grandpa in Richfield. My dad was a bit torn as to whether he should be with his dad or me. In the end my Grandma Barney told my dad he needed to be there for me. The doctor came in that morning and talked to Grandma and some of my aunts and uncles. After he left, Treasa, my aunt, bent over and told him it was ok to go. About 2 minutes later her passed. He passed peacefully and we feel very blessed that he did not have to suffer very long. My Grandpa was such a neat man and I have so many wonderful memories of him. I feel feel very blessed to have been loved by him and to be one of his granddaughters.
