Losing my dad.
It’s been a week today that he’s been gone. It still feels unreal. There are days when I wake up feeling like it was all a bad dream…and he’s just a phone call away…
The day we lost my dad was the hardest – longest day of my life. He was the sweetest, most gentlest man I’ve ever met. He was devoted to his family and loved my mom, sis, brother and I so much. He always wanted to be a grandfather and I feel so grateful that he was able to meet my babies before he left us.
It gives me a little peace writing this post, as I look back on photos of my dad and me and reflect back on the times when he was well.
No matter what my dad faced he never complained.
My dad left us too soon. Never take for granted the time you have with loved ones. Life goes by too quickly.
I’ve come to realize that you never truly get over the loss of someone you loved so much. You just learn to adjust to a new life without that person in it.
“Miss Me But Let Me Go”
When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little-but not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me-but let me go
For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone.
It’s all part of the Master’s plan
A step on the road to home
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me but let me go.
