Glenn Beck’s Father Has Passed Away…

The following statement was issued by Mercury Radio Arts:

“It is with a heavy heart that we share the sad news that Glenn’s father passed away at the age of 86. Glenn’s father was a man who understood hard work, believed in the promise of America and will be missed by his children and grandchildren. Times like these remind us what is important in life and Glenn and his wife are deeply grateful for your thoughts and prayers. Glenn asks that, in lieu of flowers or donations, you would do one act of kindness for someone in your life and help spread the universal message of love.”

Beck posted the note below on Facebook as he flew from New York City to Washington State on Wednesday to be with family:

It has been a tough week. I was in NYC for a funeral of an “aunt”. Then last night I got a call from my sister Michelle. She said my father was in the hospital.

Hours ago the nurses said that we should all gather. Tonight I find myself flying to see my father as he heads back home to see his Father.

Tonight, I am chasing the sun and racing against the clock trying to arrive before his escorts do.

Pray for my sisters and children as they love dad and grandpa as much as I do.

May they live to feel just a second of the end of The Snow Angel.

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
