We’ll see you later Dad

I knew it would be hard, but not this hard.  How do you say

good-bye?  How do you find the words to write about it?  I

have written and deleted so many times.  It is so hard to

write down your feelings, to do them justice.

We laid Dad to “rest” yesterday.  Of course in true fashion for

this family it was not the “norm”.  Or what others will

perceive as the “norm”.  But it is what Dad wanted and

it was the last request of his we could honor.

So Dad was cremated and laid to rest in the lake he and Mom

lived on.  No ceremony, no memorial, just family.  He loved

being on the lake.  He loved to fish, swim, boat and just sit in

his chair and look out the patio doors onto the lake.  I think or

I like to think that these were his happiest years.  He was

living on the lake, his children were near, his grandchildren

were near.  Oh how he loved his grandchildren!  They brought

him a happiness that is unsurpassed by any.

 

So, this is NOT good-bye.  Dad will always be with us.

We love you and we will see you later DAD!

Oh Sandy, I am so sorry to hear that he went Home early. I know you're heart must just hurt right now and will pray for you all. Sorry I got so behind on reading blogs that I didn't know it happened. Praying for a much better 2011 for your family. Thanks for your encouragement on my blog. My faith wavers when I'm in trials too. But, faith as small as a mustard seed can do mighty things. Blessings, Kelly
