From Daughter Cindy on Facebook:
So here we are at Day 7 and there is still little change in my Dad’s status over the past couple of days. This is a difficult update to make, but we just can’t reach everybody at once so I was asked to get this out tonight. I apologize from all us kids if you didn’t get a call first. We’ve tried to contact as many as possible beforehand. As I mentioned in an earlier post, my brothers (Jeff Cooper, Miles Cooper, Jr), sister (Jody Hartman), Mom (Lonice Cooper) and I were meeting with Dad’s doctors to decide what our next steps would be pertaining to his care. We had that meeting today and it was difficult to say the least. Asking, “if we do this……..what will happen? If we don’t do this……will this happen?” Back and forth we went until a final decision was made. Sometime tomorrow, we don’t know exactly what time yet, Dad will be removed from life support. If God wants him to live, he will live and we will take care of him as best we can. If God wants to call him home heaven will gain another lead singer and Daddy will reach his final reward. His whole life has been centered around Christ and His love for him and anyone who would believe so they could have everlasting life too. So we don’t think about this as losing Daddy because we actually “lost” him on Wednesday afternoon when he pretty much stopped responding to us. But, we are thinking of Daddy reaching his final reward and we will be looking forward to the day when we will see him again. Blessings to you all.
