Prayers PLEASE

Wednesday, October 09, 2013

Please pray for my family today and in the days ahead. We lost an amazing man last night, someone who stepped into the role of step-father to myself and my siblings when my brother and I were adults and my sister was almost an adult herself. He never tried to pretend he was our 'dad' but he didn't love us any less than if he had been our dad. He is my children's 'papa' having married my mom when my oldest daughter was only a year old. I have no words to tell my children who spent weeks with Grandma and Papa this summer that he won't be there with his 'invisible' beating stick and he can't 'throw them in the mud' anymore. Life is too short and our family will never be the same without 'Papa Paul'. I love you Paul, I know I never called you dad but you and mom were my 'parents' to anyone that asked. I can't thank you enough for loving me, my siblings, my babies, and my mom.

    There are never the perfect words to say when you lose someone close to you. I'm sorry for your loss Heidi. If you need an ear or just need someone to talk to or at while you are going through this, drop me a line.
