An appreciation for my dad



  • halohalo Posts: 5,570
    A sincere thank you to all of you for your support.

    My father passed away this morning just after 7 am.

    He was not alone as my sister, nephew, and cousin were there. He wasn’t in any pain. He simply stopped breathing while he slept. This is what he wanted. We should all be so fortunate. He is at peace. I will miss him.

    He was met at the gates of heaven by those that went before. May he be welcomed into the arms of our Father, and blessings be upon you and your family at this time and always.

    My dear friend Victor. Just catching up on this thread even though I have contemplated and prayed for your dad during this time. I was hoping to connect with you last week, but as you said your Dad and family needed you during this time.

    I am so sorry to hear that your Dad has passed. But even though with tears in my eyes I am heartened by the fact that he is in Heaven, with the Father, and he is looking down, at his own beloved son, knowing that his son loves him very much.

    Your Dad I know is very proud of you Vic! You have endured, but overcame many obstacles that life has thrown at you. I for one, as many of us here, are also very proud and blessed to have you as a friend and member of this community.

    Take care my brother. And your family too, in this time of great sorrow, but also one of great joy!

    Sorry to hear the news, Victor. However, I'm very glad that he was surrounded by loved ones, and that you got to spend some quality time with him this past week. May he rest in peace.

    Very sorry to hear, my condolences to you and your family.
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?
