My dad was respected by all that knew him. But none more then me! He was my Sunday bingo Buddy! I cherished that time with him! When either one of us won we gave a high five! ;). I was with him for his last hrs on this earth and held him in my arms, I told him to rest a while before we opened Xmas gifts with grand kids. So he said ok. I told him to think of good things like winning at bingo and he gave me my last high five with a beautiful stare that told me just how much he loved me! He closed his eyes and went to sleep for ever! I will miss him deeply and he will always be in my heart I LOVE YOU DAD! Dear God I hope you realize you did get best Xmas gift this year! Take care of him :(.

This is my story....reading it I know I forgot something
by: Cris

I didn't even touch on pain I'm feeling! I close my eyes and see the life of the man I loved and got so close to leaving his body! I yelled Daddy Daddy and he was gone! I'm trying so hard to be strong but I'm not strong! I'm falling apart inside! I miss him so much....I need him here! I pass cemetery 4 times a day but know he's really not there either! My whole body aches! The pain is unbearable! I want to scream help me! But no one can! I need my job.....but have hard time working dealing with people! They mean well but for Gods sake I know he's in a better place, I know it takes time, please don't tell me I'll be ok! Just tell me u care and keep me in your prayers, be there if I need someone to talk too but don't judge me or tell me I should feel better because it's been a month! Dear God help me find peace! Give me strength to deal with all that I'm feeling!
