Dad died 26 years ago. And I still miss him. But the thing that hurts the most is that Today we closed on the sale of the home property that my Dad loved so much. Signing the paper's releasing it to the new owner was both a relief and bittersweet. We stopped by the property before going to the appointment and it was sad to see how the weeds have taken over. The fruit tree's Dad worked so hard to plant and was so proud of, are still there but very overgrown and very little fruit on them. The house that we loved so much is run down and really needs to be torn down and I guess the new owner plans on doing exactly that. I know times change and life goes on after we lose someone important but sometimes it can just be too much to deal with. I can't help but wonder how Dad would feel about the sale of the property that he loved so much. This is one decision I will have to live with. I just pray he knows it was as hard today to let go of that property as it was the day I had to let go of him. I love you and miss you Dad. Thank you for everything you have done for me even tho at the time I didn't see the wisdom in it.

    emoticon emoticon I can only imagine how painful it is to lose your father. When my late husband died in 2003, selling the house that he worked so hard to buy (it was actually paid in full!) was the hardest. It felt final and I almost felt like I was betraying him by selling it.

    I know just what you mean. Just try to think of how much your dear dad loved you and all he did for love when you were growing up and how he'd want you to be happy now. He sure wouldn't want you to be sad. I've gone through alot of the same as you have. Lots of emoticon to you. Karen emoticon

    This is a beautiful blog that honors the love between a daughter and her dad. I know it is hard to sell the property and let it go. We had to do something similar so I am familiar with that sense of loss over the life known at the homestead. Your dad does, and always will, live on in your heart.

Thanks for your encouragement on my blog. I appreciate it so much.

Wishing you a wonderful Thursday. emoticon

    I recently went home on vacation and showed my childhood home which was my grandmothers to my kids. My mom passed away 20 years ago so yes I know exactly how you feel it was hard to let go 20 years ago and it's still hard today. emoticon
