Goodbye Dad!

I'm not good at words but I know I'd like to say that my Dad is now "resting peacefully" without further pain or misery and hopefully on his final journey, back into the arms of his loving wife Vicky!  He hated the last couple of years as he said "he was taking up air and space from someone else" because he was not the man he once was, the breadwinner, a hardworker, and proud man in charge, the Father I remember!

November 17, 1913 - February 26, 2011

"Perhaps they are not the stars, but rather openings in heaven where the love of our lost ones pours through and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.
May we take comfort in knowing an angel is watching over us.
Like a bird singing in the rain, let grateful memories survive in time of sorrow."

Losing a parent is so hard - and the loss of the surviving parent is especially poignant.
As long as you remember your father, he will never be really absent from your life.
You will find strength to cope with this grief, and it will take as long as it will take.
