GOODBYE DADDY


 I am deeply saddened. It is with a heavy heart, I tell you, my father passed away this week. There won’t be a funeral or viewing. So I won’t have a chance to say that final goodbye. I am grateful I had a nice phone conversation with him the night before he passed. I will always treasure that. My dad was one of a kind. He was a veteran. A Navy man. He was witty and wise, highly opinionated. He loved his family with all his heart. He kept up with technology navigating a smart phone and the internet.  He never missed a New Years Eve or birthday without calling.  He would call at exactly 2pm (the time I was born) for my birthday every year and at midnight for New Years Eve.  He worked in the television business for over 40 years. He saw a lot of changes in this old world.  I will miss skyping and text messaging with him. I love you daddy. Rest in peace.

Ahh sweet lady, I am so sorry to hear this. I know you will miss him, it would be impossible not to.
Thinking of you and wishing Fair winds and following seas to a shipmate on his last voyage. God's speed!

My heart is breaking for you and I got teary-eyed when reading this. At devastating times like this, mere words seem useless.

I'm deeply sorry for your loss. Your Father was a treasure. You will always have his memory in your heart - and his love.
Take care.

So sorry for your loss; I lost my Daddy 8 months ago and it still is hard to believe. But do believe he lives on in my heart, as your Daddy will with you, forever in our memories. I know you will miss him every day. My prayers to you and your family during this sad time.

Taryterre, I'm so sorry to hear your Father passed away. It sounds like you and him were close. How special that he called every year on your birthday at the hour you were born. You had a wonderful father for many years, and you can take comfort in that. Thinking of you today, Taryterre, and wishing you a Happy Easter.

love, ~Sheri

Dear Taryterre...Oh, my dear friend, my heart goes out to you. It is never easy to lose a parent. I am sure your Dad is now resting peacefully in the other realm of life. But Taryterre, it is never, ever easy for those left behind. May the Lord comfort you and let you know that your father will live now, forever, in your heart. Hugs. Susan
