I was thinking of you today. When I saw the picture of your dad, some of his features reminded me of my dad. I've attached a profile picture showing the "apples of dads eyes" my mom, my daughter, my son and me. I'm so grateful for all the memories. Yesterday was hard, it's been 2 months since he passed and I think I'm finally making/finding the time to grieve. In some ways I thought if I ignored it, it wouldn't be true - does that make sense?
This is my cute Dad... He suffered for 20 years before he left this world. I loved every second with him but watching him slowly die was so hard and I felt it was unfair. I know that this sounds bad and in a perfect world neither of us would have to ever deal with any of this but I wish that my Dad would not have suffered for so long. What a blessing to be taken quickly and not have to hurt for no reason. I am so sorry for your loss and wish that things for both of our Fathers could have been different. I wear something of his everyday and I dont know that I will ever stop doing that. Its the only thing that keeps me from falling apart.
Thanks for sharing with me, I am here if you need to vent...
