The Thunder Rolls and the Lightening Strikes

J~ slipped away from us at 2:45 this morning.

Immediately afterwards the sky shook with thunder and lightening for almost an hour.

Like his mother (my grandmother), J~ loved thunderstorms.

Perhaps there is a scientific explanation for the timing, a change in atmospheric pressure...

Perhaps it was merely coincidence.

But I am choosing to believe it was his grand farewell.

I am so sorry for your loss, and at the same time glad that the anxiety of the anticipation can now begin to end. It was a grand farewell. We even heard it up here. ;)
