MY DAD DIED TODAY


Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Hi Guys,
Just got word this afternoon my Dad passed away. I am so glad I got to see him in July for his 93 b-day. You can see his picture with the family on my Spark Page. I'm waiting to hear back from my brothers and then find a flight to Pa.It's been exactly 2 yrs and 2 weeks since my Mom died. Dad's wanted to be with her ever since and now he is. Praise God! He is happy now. He was a wonderful Dad and a great man. He will be missed. We are ready to celebrate Dad's life as he would want us to do. I have some funny stories to tell at the service. I'll tell them later in another blog.
Love,
Elayne

    So sorry for your loss. It's so hard to let them go, but knowing they're in the arms of Jesus makes it easier.
In Christ's love,

    I am sorry for your loss. It is comforting to know that he is with your mom now, and that he is not suffering any more pain or loneliness.
I am so glad you had some time with him just a few weeks ago.
I know you will miss him dreadfully, but take comfort in the knowledge that he is with your mom and his parents and other family members who have gone on before. He will be preparing a place for you when it is your turn to join him.

    Sorry for your loss, but so happy he was set for Eternity! My Mom died in 2010 and my Dad is in a care home. Do we ever get too old to stop wanting our parents to be a phone call away?! God Bless you and your family as you celebrate his life!
