  • R.I.P., dad.....

    I haven't been around as much lately, my dad has been in and out of the hospital the past month. He passed away and went to be with mom on Friday morning. I've lost both parents within just about 6 months of each other, my world will never be the same. Dad was ready to go, however. He told me a couple months ago that he was tired of his body not being able to keep up with what he wanted it to do..... he could get around the house with little trouble, but he couldn't drive or lift anything, and he'd fallen down during the night a couple times when he got up to go to the bathroom, resulting in a couple bad bruises and a couple of nasty skin tears on his arm. He told me that he was ready to go lay crowns at his Savior's feet and be with mom. He and mom would have been married 64 years on Valentine's day of this year had she lived. Visitation is tomorrow evening and the funeral is Tuesday morning. I'm pretty ok with things right now, although I was home with him (along with 2 of my 3 sisters and my brother) when he passed away and that was hard, and I'm not sure how ok I will be with things when visitation and funeral time roll around. I hope my kids handle this ok, they were pretty torn up when their grandma (my mom) died.

    Sorry for rambling, I just wanted to share this and get some of it off my chest. Those of you that pray, any prayers you want to send our way would be greatly appreciated.

    Jon

      I feel your pain. I am 29 yrs old. I lost my father when I was 8 and my mother when I was 22. It is sad to see people you love go but they will always remain in your heart. Hope you feel better.

          You have my sympathy.

          I lost my dad about 10 years ago, it was horrible. The pain fades in time.

          Peace.

            I can't imagine what it's going to be like, honestly. It's something I don't like thinking about.

                Sorry to hear that, Jon. If he believed in the Lord, then your comfort is knowing he is with Him. He's feeling nothing but joy right now.

                        Your dad reminds me of Kevin Arnold's dad from the Wonder Years. Stern and never one to take ****************, but also the kind of guy that manned the grill and taught you to drive stick. Keep your head up brother.
