Threaten Me With Heaven. Another beautiful song by Vince Gill due out the end of the month. When my husband I first heard this song was just a few days before my father in law Burley Ludwig passed away. It gave us some comfort and sure to be a source of comfort to many others. If you get time be sure to listen to it. Its a song sang by a father to his child.
(These pictures were taken of Burley earlier this summer,he was just regaining his strength. This was his first time back up on the tractor in a very long time and one of the things he loved to do,cut hay )
Burley was diagnosed with Multiple myeloma about 5 years ago. After a long, long winter of chemo,stem cell transplant and emergency surgery to repair a whole in his intestine,Burley was in remission. Then one month ago he had to undergo surgery for his gall bladder.When the surgeon & his team went in to remove his rotted gall bladder things were much worse than they were prepared for. He was in ICU for 3 weeks before passing away.
We kept his funeral short and no sad songs. That was something he & I always agreed on was how horrible funerals were and to have such sad music only makes them worse. The song playing was the only song we,the family requested to be played at his grave side service but sadly the funeral home got it mixed up and nothing was played. The song you hear now was one of Burley's favorites and one we think he would have been happy we choose for him,it "fit" him. Burley was always laughing and loved to tell jokes. Even when he felt so badly in the hospital he would still try to crack the Doctors & Nurses up.
Gone but like so many of our loved ones who have passed,he will never be forgotten. For those who knew Burely,we all have our stories of him to tell & his stories will live on.
