Rough Road Ahead

Sunday, March 09, 2008

Well friends & SP of those really rough roads is up ahead...see, tomorrow, March 10th-is the 3rd anniversary of my fathers many of you already know....he was my everything... as he was to my mom, my brother and to each of his 6 grandchildren... he helped to raise each grandchild... and helped his own children in more ways than can be counted... the pain is still as rough as it was the day we found him.... though i know he walks with me every step of every day... this year, i am going to try to do what he would do... what he has taught us all to do... that is to smile (even through the tears) laugh (even through the sobs) and reach out to help those that need just need a little help from a friend (even through my hands shaking)

as a challenge to all of you...i ask that in memory of my father... you will do the same. hugs to each of you and thank you... you each have helped me, though you may not realize it, by just being there....laughing with me...crying with me...and encouraging me to take one more step.

    I lost my father when he was only in his mid-50's. It has been over 15 years, but I still miss him a lot, especially on holidays. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family on the 3rd anniversary of your beloved father's passing. May fond memories you shared with him bring you some comfort on this difficult day.

    On the 26th of February I was going through what you will be tomorrow, it was the 2nd anniversary of my Daddy passing. I kept myself busy and made it through the day a lot better than I expected. Keep the happy memories up front, stay active and keep the mind very busy. Take care.

    Kitty Darlin, you have me crying here. My father taught me so many things. My love for history, to always try to be honest in the things you do and to respect other peoples beliefs. My dad passed in 1992. He never saw any of his Great-grandchildren. The oldest one was born nine months later and four days after he would have celebrated his 84th Birthday. God Bless you Honey, I'll be thinking of you.

    I lost my dad on April, 2007 and I don't know how I'm going to feel when that day comes, but I do know that it's been difficult for me since he passed. We were very close and there's not a day that goes by that I don't miss him. You are in my thoughts and prayers as you continue to grieve his passing. It always help to know that there are other people in your corner who understands your pain and are there to help. Continue to be strong, Kitty.

    Many of us have lost- untimely -a family member. I lost my baby sister (cancer) and my father (and best friend) (heart attack) within 6 months of each other. So I truly do understand your pain. I will shed a tear for you, I will be strong for you and hope that this day passes without too much agony. Remember the beauty he brought into your life...remember the good stuff....that's what he'd want if he could say. Hugs and kisses to you today
