Daddy, I love you! I didn't have much time with you and it breaks my heart! I miss you so much I can't breath! You will be missed until I see you again in Heaven! I love you! I am so happy that you are healthy now and without pain! You endured that here on earth long enough but I sure wish I had a moment more with you....if for nothing else just to hug you one last time and to tell you how much I love you!

I miss my dad. I wish that he was still a phone call away. I wish that I could hear him talk, giggle, or complain. I wish that I could have seen him just one more time. I wish that I could have hugged him just one more last time. I wish...I wish...I wish. All of my wishes won't change the fact that he is no longer roaming this earth with me. I find comfort in knowing that God is almighty and that He sustains me and my family during this time. I'm thankful that my youngest daughter hugs like he does. I gently asked her for one last night and I didn't want to let go. Much like I don't want to let go of Dad. I was so thankful for the opportunity to share in his memories with his community of friends. It was an awesome tribute to who he was deep inside. As kids we saw much of this, but as adults, we're not in the midst of it so much with families of our own and such. Thank you, Advantage Funeral & Cremation Service for your gentleness in making the arrangements with my mom. Dad will be missed for years to come. I thank Jesus that, although it may be difficult, He sustains me. He allows me glimpses by memory of our life with Dad. My perspective will make all the difference in this healing process. Will this remain difficult or will I seek the Giver of Life to take my burden and let Him keep it? I choose Christ. I choose His path. He will be my Rock and my Fortress and it is in Him and Him alone that I will trust. Over the last several months, I'd asked Dad how his relationship was with the Lord. He told me over and over again that they were "ok". This is what I hang on to when thinking about seeing him again. This was between Dad and God. I trust this and will look forward to seeing him again some day in Heaven.
