Default Thank you for all your kind words about my dad

I can't begin to express how much I appreciate each of you for your support, encouragement, thoughts, and prayers. My dad's illness and recent death has really thrown me for a loop. I can barely think straight.
Again, I appreciate all the kindness you have shown. Even though we don't really know each other, you all are accepting of me and ready to help anyway you can. That means a lot to me.
Thanks again!
Sam

My thoughts are with you at this difficult time. I lost my dad in February 2006 at the age of 91. I still have tough times but it is getting easier even though I miss him so much! I just happened to be listening to a song that really reminds me of him when I read your post and thought I would share it with you. It is Phil Collins, You'll Be in My Heart. I heard it on the radio the morning after my dad died, and it was really comforting to me to know that he is right there when I need him.

I am so sorry to hear about your Dad. My Mom just passed away a few weeks ago, so I definitely have an idea of what you are going thru. It has been hard but she had very strong faith and she lived a very fulfilling, long life. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

My dad was sick last summer and I had to care for him until he passed. It was the hardest thing to go through, so I am thinking and praying for you. The good memories will get you through.

With Sympathy

Thank you to everyone for all your encouragement. It really means a lot to me. Father's Day was really hard yesterday. I had made his Father's Day card several months ago never dreaming that he wouldn't be here to receive it. I made an arrangement for his grave and put the card in the arrangement. Maybe that's silly, but it made me feel better to do that. I know in my heart that he already knows what it says. He was a wonderful father--not perfect--just always there for whatever you needed. It still boggles my mind that he is actually gone--I'll never talk to him, see him, or touch him again. It just hasn't sunk in. Please keep up the encouraging words and thoughts.
Thanks
Sam

I'm sorry for your loss. My Dad has Esophagael Cancer and we do not know how much longer he will be with us. All of my siblings and spouses flew or drove up to see him for Father's Day. He said it was the best present he could have ever asked for!
Keep on keeping your chin up!
