Frances Zola Obituary, Death -I am forced to tell you the terrible news despite the stabbing pain that it causes in my chest. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can do to change the situation. Yesterday evening at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Gary went away in a calm and serene manner after an extended illness. On his travels, he was accompanied by his niece, Victoria Callaway, as well as his nephew, Justin. The entire location was completely silent; there was not a peep to be heard anywhere. We were given the prognosis that he had two to three weeks to live, and we had planned to bring him home on Monday so that he could receive hospice care; but, he did not survive.
We were given the information that he only had two to three weeks to live. I would want to take this opportunity to thank you for praying for me over the course of the past 11 and a half years. Your support has been invaluable. At long last, after what seems like an eternity, he is finally able to take a breath without having to force it. He was very brave in spite of all of the health problems that he was experiencing, and he will be missed extremely, significantly, and very much. Despite the many challenges he had with his health, he did his best to maintain his charming sense of humor, and he was ultimately successful. I felt it was incredibly thoughtful of Cedars to allow me to say my goodbyes to him in front of his dog.
He was gracious enough to do that for me. After giving his hand a quick lick, he proceeded to jump into bed next to him. After that, he kissed his hand. Reggie has shown a wonderful degree of control today despite the fact that she has been crying for him nonstop for the past week. Despite this, she has managed to retain a remarkable level of composure. I give appreciation to God for implanting that concept in my mind and for allowing me to handle the subsequent events with such composure.
