I miss you Pops

My dad died at 4:57 pm on Monday April 8th 2013. He was killed at work. It wasnt an accident infact it was a routine thing that he had done a hundred times before im sure. He was the go to expert on falling trees and all that it entailed so its so strange that it was what he loved that killed him in the end. I was informed that he died instantly and didnt even see it coming so he didnt suffer. I can get some comfort from that but it still feels like my heart was ripped out. The suddeness of the accident is so hard to grasp. I didnt get to say good bye. I recieved a text from him at 4:16 pm that same day so when my brother told me that he was gone i couldnt believe him. I just kept saying that it couldnt be because i just talked to him! It hurts so much to think that the last time i saw him i didnt even tell him i loved him. I never do that! I miss him so much. He was our rock, he was always there for us kids. He believed in our dreams and helped us accomplish them. He was my Pops and i will always miss him. I love you!
I am only 25 and my dad was 59, so young...too young to die.

Allaina I am so very sorry for your loss of your Dad to a sudden death.
What a sad and very tragic accident. One just never knows what will happen from one day to the next. We take each day for granted never knowing if it belongs to us. Worse in fact if you had just talked to your father on the phone. It will feel more unreal. Many of us will go from day to day and feel secure in our family, thinking they will always be there for us. We don't say I LOVE YOU! as a regular habit. It is just understood. As in close knit families where there is deep love and respect for each other.
This will be a tremendous loss to recover from. Your dad was still a young man.
I sat in the car with my husband and in conversation we watched people go by. I suddenly thought that they all have a story to tell and no one knows if they are walking around with a cancer that could kill them. Little did I know that my husband was the one with the worst deadly cancer that was inoperable, incurable, and aggressive. It was the most horrendous cancer journey for over 3yrs of treatments to prolong a life that had no quality of life. I lost my husband to this deadly cancer one year ago. I feel as crushed as you do from your/my loss. My husband was 65yrs. of age when he died and he lost out on his well earned retirement just as your father did. Life seems to be so unfair to claim the lives of our men folk.
I pray that God will cover your family with Love and Blessings and Comfort you all in your grief and sorrow.
