My life began in a family of two wonderful parents and a older sister and brother; Today was a day of saddest when my father passed away. I am thankful that he now has no more pain and that he is with my mother now.
He was a very wonderful man, he taught me right from wrong, and asked that I be strong and I would go a long way in life. The military was most of his life, and he fought in the Vietnam war and then educated other sailors from his experiences in his last years of the military. He retired twice in his life, one the military and the other as a bank vice president.
He preceeded his wife Josephine in passing and is survived by one brother Kenny, of Ohio, and a son from Beeville Texas, and a daughter in Louisanna, and of course me.
I am so happy now that he is with my mom and I can hear her asking why did he do this and this and this. I can see the love they both shared and now the love that is forever. The last words I was able to say was that I have lost some more weight and he was happy for me. In fact, he said he would buy me a car if I lost another 300 pounds ( that was his dementia talking, but it made all of us kids laugh). Then I ended the phone call with I love you, and he returned the words.
The one way I can honor him is to stay strong, and make sure my life style change is a success.
With this I would like to thank all my Sparkfriends and Dawgie Team mates for love love and concern.
