Thinking of you Diane and wishing you and your family the best during this diffucult time. My dad passed away five years ago from cancer in October. He was still young to us, 72 and full of life and died less than six weeks from his diagnosis. We were not prepared to say the least...but I don' know if you ever are. Things are never the same and time does not heal...but that's okay because I don't need to "heal"...we all continue to miss him and do not make any apologies about it. My niece just got married on his birthday last Oct. 25th (he died on the 24th...ironic I know...he was planning on going gambling for his birthday)...anyhow, we honored our loss of him and my niece specifically wanted to get married on his birthday because we honor him so. Again, best wishes for you and your family, fondly, Roberta

I'm so sorry. Life seems to stand still, doesn't it?

Ah, there isn't much one can put into words, except a great sympathy and empathy as you live this pain.

An ache that is there even when you smile--and feel alone in any crowd.

I'm praying for you right now, this minute.

I was blog wandering and came upon your blog. I found myself compelled to comment and offer my sincere condolences in your time of loss. Last September, within that months time, my family lost their father too, my grandfather. It still hurts and so I reach out to you and offer hugs and prayers for comfort. May you feel God's presence holding you in this most difficult time.

I just came upon your blog. I send my sincere condolences to you and your family. I started a blog in January after the sudden death of my daughter. I then lost my mother four months later. I am still reeling. I will be praying for all of you. I've never experienced pain like this before...my heart goes out to you.

Spice said...

My condolences. I hope you remember the good times you had with him and your family, those are the best gifts. I wish you and your family the best during this difficult time in your lives.

I just came across your blog and felt I need to say something. I also understand "numb" as I lost my father in January of this year. He was my anchor and rock in life! I really do understand your loss. There is nothing like it. My prayer is that, in time, you will find peace and comfort thru the words of Christ. "God is my refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble" Psalm 46:1. His presence has been so very real thru this trial. God Bless!

Jesus Christ boldly promised: "Just as the Father raises the dead up and makes them alive, so the Son also makes those alive whom he wants to. Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his [Jesus'] voice and come out." (John 5:21, 28, 29) Yes, Jesus Christ promised that millions now dead will live again on this earth and have the prospect of remaining on it forever under peaceful, paradisaic conditions. (Luke 23:43; John 3:16; 17:3; compare Psalm 37:29 and Matthew 5:5.)

I was just looking through blogs, clicking on the "Next Blog" and yours came up. My heart hurts for you with the loss of your father. I know they say time heals all, its been 5 years since my father passed and I still miss him. I can say the pain will ease but the missing is still heartfelt. Take it day by day, that is all you can do and I will pray that the lord will ease your sorrow.

God's Blessings to you and your family.

I was wondering what a blog was and yours was an example... It made me understand what and how they can be helpful.

I feel your emotion...

I know this sounds strange, but all my loved ones have come to me in my dreams and I was able to talk to them and tell them how much I missed them and loved them, hope you can do the same.

they are with us always...Peace, Matt Day
