Not Quite A Year , missin my Sis and now......

Dec.8 will mark the 1 year aniversary of my sisters sudden death .The pain of losing her is still fresh,and now I'm holding up as best I can after losing my Dad on Oct.11.He was 89 yrs. old and I'm blessed that I had him as long as I did,that still doesn't make the pain of losing a loved one any easier.The 3 of us were quite close,the day she passed I knew my Dad had all the tragedy one can take.He began to eat less and in aug. the dr. confirmed the news that my dad was declining.On Sept.17 ,I had hospice come in to help me out since I was the only careprovider.I always thought my sister would be here with me and we would care for my dad together.He lasted 23 days on hospice.It was so hard for both of us to let go and be seperated.So hard that one nite while he was having visions he asked out loud "can you take me & my son at the same time ? " I haven't even had the services yet.My birthday is only a few weeks away,and I thought how close to have to have a day that I'll be missin him deeply.I couldn't make it any other day , being that I put him before myself I thought what better way to honor him.The day will not be about me it will be all about him.Now I'm grieving for the sister who I was so close to and my Dad who I really became close to in these last 8 yrs. A brother & son left alone............FREDDIE
