Hi ladies this has been a challenging year so far for me.  As many of you know I lost my Mom in February of this year and on Monday my dad passed away.  He had prostrate cancer which had eventually spread to his bones.  I am telling you I saw him go through some moments of pain that I myself would not have been able to stand.  He went into the Hospital on Friday and on Sunday night he went to Hospice and by Monday at 6 he passed away.  He was not just my father but he was my daddy.  He was one of the special special ones.  His cremation service is tomorrow morning at 10.  In April of next year which is both him and my mom’s birth month, my brother and I with our families will travel back to the Islands, tomb our mother’s grave and place the ashes within the tomb of my mom.

It is so hard, painful, rough, emotional roller coaster.  We had a beautiful relationship especially as I was able to have him live with me.  I cannot continue right now as it hurt really bad.  Please pray for us.

    • Hello Brimstone, I send my love and condolences to you and your family in your time of loss, I shall keep you in my prayers and if you need me I'm just a few strokes away. Remember the great times with you father knowing he is at peace now and that God will heal your weeping heart. He is a healer, "earth knows no sorrow, that heaven can't heal"

    • Brimstone, may the peace that passes all understanding guard your heart and mind during your time of bereavement.  May the  love of God keep you covered.  The bond you shared with your daddy will always be in your heart and you are blessed to be the holder of sweet memories of your daddy.  In time, your mourning will turn to joy.

      You will be kept in my prayers Brimstone.heart  

      An act of kindness is a gift given

    • Denise....I am so sorry to hear about your loss. My father passed suddenly 4 years ago in Feb. It was the most devastating thing for me. I was so very close to my Dad. He had been not only my Father, but my Mother as well. My Mom left my sister & I was I was only 8. So Dad...was my everything! I also went through a divorce that same year, after 19 years of marriage. I felt as though my whole world was crumbling...and for a little while, I was truly losing myself. I was going out, drinking & was trying to mask the pain anyway I could. But after about a 9 months...Dad started coming to me in dreams....and I do feel he was there to help me get back to what was important...my family, my daughters & myself! I have found love again, in a man who similar to my Father. I felt too that Dad lead me to him....so even though he is not here in the physical sense...I know he is always with me! watching me & guiding me as he always did....I pray for much peace in your life and although this is a void that will never truly be filled...your Mom & Dad will always be with you! Much blessings my friend~ Carey

    • Thank you Fab ladies for all the condolences and encouraging words.  When we have to go through something the words of friends really helps to make the journey a little less painful.  The homegoing service for my daddy was so peaceful.  As the saying goes “so you live, so you die“.  I encourage everyone to love, love, love your family and spend time with them.  I had two great parents and time spent with them are precious memories that will help me live on.
