Encourage one another and build one another up. Pray without ceasing. Test everything. Keep what is good. Avoid all evil. -1 Thess 5:11,17,21,22
Dude. Thoughts and prayers from here.
I'm sorry for your loss. I was fortunate to move past my idiot teen years and have a good relationship with my Dad. I would have liked more time, but we aren't allowed to chose the time of passing.
As an American Legion Post Chaplain, I always close my funeral service with this statement: We will all meet again, some sunny day.
Sincere condolences for your loss.
I pray God's peace and comfort upon you and your loved ones.
So very sorry for your loss, and so grateful you shared the process as things moved along. Prayers for you and the family.
Thinking of you here. Your posts showed a job well done. He will welcome you again someday.Don't feel bad for feeling relief. It is harder work than most understand.
I thank God that your Dad is no longer hurting!Peace.
May he rest in peace. Prayers for the family.
My prayers are on you and your family. I grieve for thee.
B, John, Martyn, Aaron, Rich, Ralph, Engineer, Mark, Jim and Cederq:Thank-you for your kind words and prayers. I assure you that they are working.There is much to be said for "leaving it all on the field".In many ways, I am very lucky. I had him for a long time. 94 is a darned good run. He was still lugging ladders around until 89 and mowing grass until he was 92ish.I will be proud if I can be half the man he was.And yes, I do look forward to seeing him again.
You will see him again. I lost my own dad when I was still too young and stupid to fully appreciate his character, and too soon to seek his wisdom when it could have helped. But I was still blessed to have him in my life. And you have been blessed with his long life and, I am guessing, many other things. And you will see him again. Condolences and Best Wishes.
Don't get me wrong. I'm happy for you.Your dad had a good run.I trust he's in a better place and in a better frame of mind than ever before.I don't miss my dad. I hear him often in my voice. I know the advice he'd give. I certainly heard every story he was willing to tell. Twice.I'm sure it will be the same for you.
Joe, Although we don't know one another, it wouldn't be right to have read all that you've shared in the final months of your father's life and not offer you my condolences. I pray that he rests in perfect peace and is held lovingly in the memory of those left behind.
Very sorry for your loss. From your writings it’s clear you were there when needed.
Sorry for your loss. Prayers for you and family.
Deepest condolences and dittos to all the above.
Joe, I'm sorry about your Dad. Losing parents sucks, no matter what the circumstances.
Joe: Please accept my belated condolences for the passing of your father. My father also died at age 94. I loved him very much, he was a good father and a good man. But it was only after he died that I fully realized bit by bit over a long period of time, just how good of a guy and how good of a father he was. You may experience something similar with the passage of time. And if you do, it will just serve to remind you all over again just how lucky you were to have him as your father.
I am sorry to hear of your loss.
