My father has passed away

Wednesday, October 10, 2012

Thank you for all your kind comments in my previous posts when my father was on life support. He passed away tonight, a great man and the best Dad. He was in bed, not conscious when his heart finally stopped beating, but I am sure his spirit saw him surrounded by his whole family, all the people who loved him. I will miss him so much, but also remember him with great happiness and love, as will all the many people whose lives he touched. Yes, I am sad, but I know he wanted us to be happy when we think of him, and so we talk about the funny and happy memories we have of him.

Dad, we had so many great times together and memories, thank you for being there for me when I needed you, I am so happy and proud that you were my father.

    Aren't you lucky to have had such a close person to you who loved you just as you are, his little girl. My Dad died similarly and left us early but I carry him with me everyday. And my relationship to him is just as strong even though he isn't present. He continues to be Dad and support me without saying anything. That's what love does. I hope you can keep your Dad's love for you close and get comfort from it.

Best wishes with your running.
