My father passed away on May 30th. I flew up to see him when I heard he was sick and was there when he woke for the last time, I got one last big smile when he saw me and one last wonderful kiss. I was there when he left us surrounded by his children and grandchildren and lots of love.
Today is hard, if you still have your father please give him an extra hug, kiss and “I love you”, not just today but as often as possible.
Thank you to the people who emailed to ask where I was, during a difficult time you made me smile.
My sincere condolences in your loss. Many gentle hugsReplyDelete
Sorry for the loss of your father. I understand. I lost my father in 2009. Luckily, I was with him at the end, too. So glad you got to say goodbye to your father. It will stick with you forever.ReplyDelete
Hugs to you. I am hoping that both your precious memories and time will help ease your loss.ReplyDelete
Beautiful tribute. Peace and healing to you.ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry for the loss of your father, Dana. I hope the passage of time will give you peace with your memories of him. I didn't email you, but I did notice you were missing and wondered what was up. Take good care of yourself, my friend.ReplyDelete
Oh, Dana :( I'm so very, very sorry. I'm glad you got the gift of that last special visit with him. I wish I hadn't been absent from Blogland at the same time. It's hard when we lose our parents.ReplyDelete
My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Thinking about you!ReplyDelete
I was thinking of you yesterday. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm very happy for you, that you got to have those good, sweet, last moments with him. I hope that they can bring you some comfort.ReplyDelete
Dana, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I'm also joy filled that you had such a loving father and that he got to experience being surrounded by the love of his family when he passed away. I have found thinking about this poem extremely comforting during times when I am grieving for and missing a loved one: http://www.itinerantpreacher.org/gone-from-my-sight-by-henry-van-dyke/ReplyDelete
