I just don’t have it in me to post much today.
I posted this in my community last night…
- At 12:01 a.m. my Dad passed away. I am so happy that he did not suffer for years like so many others, but I am so sad for me.
I wanted to thank you all for your constant prayers and well wishes on his and my family’s behalf. Your encouragement has been appreciated more than my written words can express.
I just scheduled Tweets on Twitter and posts on Facebook to honor his memory all day long. I am going to share happy memories with everyone and it helped being able to express them as I typed. I hope you will read them and count your own blessings.
Life is so very short. Dad was only 68 and I desperately wanted him to live with me so that I could recapture a childhood that I didn’t have with him. Now, I can’t and I feel a huge empty loss for me.
Once again, thank you so very much for your support through not only my Dad’s passing, but also a few months ago when I nearly lost my one and only child. If I could, I would hug you all.
You do not have to have a Twitter account to read the things I wrote about my dad. Please feel free to read them. They started way early the morning of October 15th and won’t end until later that night. If you click “more” at the bottom of my Twitter page, it will keep populating all my tweets (tweets are little messages I post on Twitter)

I did find out today that Dad will be buried next to his grandparents on Sunday.
I’ve cried all day. I wish my tear ducts would go on strike.
Hold your family and friends tighter because unlike me, you may not have any time to say your last goodbyes. People leave this life in an instant and we just don’t know who is next or when, where, how and often why. My daughter just found out one of her friends also died last night. He was only twenty years old.
Don’t waste the opportunity you have now to forgive, forget, love and move on together with a happy life. Take time to be with one another so that you have beautiful memories when they are no longer around.
I’d like to believe that Dad had a lovely greeting from his family and Jesus after he stepped out of his cancerous body last night. That is what I’m trying to dwell on now…Dad is finally pain free and happy.
