Hi Julz, I'm sorry for the loss of your Daddy. My Daddy this past August 6, 2009. It has been trying times for my family and me. I pray for your continued strength in the Lord and please keep us in your prayers also. Take care.
My name is Sandra and I also lost my Daddy on Feb. 13, 2009. My Mom and I took care of him for 4 years and we were able to keep him at home. The Lord took him straight to Heaven from he own bed in his own room with my Mom and I there. I know exactly how you are feeling and will keep you in my prayers. I have never had to go through anything this bad in my life. I miss him everyday and the only thing that makes it better is that I know someday I will be able to see in and live forever with him in Heaven. In the last 6 months I have had to leave my house of 21 years and move in with my Mom. They were married 54 years and she got sick right after he went to Heaven. She mostly stays in her room and I take care of her with my 2 granddaughters. There has been so much change in our lives. I just wanted you to know someone else feels your pain and know that I will keep you all in my prayers. God bless you. Sandra
Julz, My Dad's been gone for 8 years now. There is not a single day that I don't think about him. Some of the stuff I think about is how I may have disappointed him, in some small way. We were very close. We worked together for 25 years. It took almost 18 months, before he finally died of cancer. In that time, I saw him, twice a day. I cut his grass, and shoveled his snow. I would bring him breakfest on my way to work. For me, I couldn't do enough for Him. Sometimes I had to pull off the side of the road, because I would think about him, then start crying. Only time I can remember crying in all my life. I miss him everyday.
I was able to move on with my emotions, when I realized he really wasn't dead inside of me. He is still very much alive. I get myself into situations, and I think, what would my Dad do?
So now, I just think to myself how lucky I was that I was His son, to know this man, and I am grateful. I think of the good times together, and that's enough to put a smile on my face. In time, it will get better.
