Bye Dad!

This afternoon, my brother in Arizona texted me.  Wanted to know if I was home.  I said yes and he called.  I had a feeling this would not be good.   It wasn’t .  Our father passed away this afternoon.  It was completely unexpected.  My dad served his country in the Marine Corps.  He fought in Viet Nam.  He volunteered at our church, he was a scout leader.  He was an amazing man.  You will be missed dad.   Semper Fi!

    I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my dad 8 months ago and I’m still trying to deal with the reality of that. May the love of your family and friends get you through this difficult time.

    Lisa – there are no words for me to express how deeply sorry I feel for you and your family. Phone calls like these are never easy. Please know that your Central Park Bulldog Family is with you during this time. My prayers are with you.

    The suddenness of it all. We never feel our time is finished with those we love, so the time is never right….but this was just so sudden. Take care of yourself. Keep writing. It truly does help the healing process. Just look at Colandra’s slice today.

    Dear Lisa, I have typed, and retyped what I want to say to you about thirty times, but could not find the words. Please know that you are loved, and that my thought and prayers are with you and the girls. The blog you wrote in your father’s honor is testament to the man he was. You are strength, courage and love shine through the sadness of your words. I am sorry for your loss my friend.
