In Memory of My Dad...

In loving memory of my father who passed away on this day July 17, 2006. Every night in my prayers I ask God to tell dad, "mom and I love him and we miss him very much". Our hearts still ache when we think of that July day. I love you dad. When it's my time to pass, I hope you are the one that opens up the gates for me.

I am so sorry for your loss. I can imagine hwo hard it is to go on without your Dad. Coincidentally, I lost my brother on the same day, only 15 years ago. He was only 25.
I lost my Mom 2 days after Christmas 2007, and we just found out that my Dad doesn't have much longer to live.
Life sure isn't fair, is it? Sending you a cyber hug, and one for your Mom as well.

I lost my dad in 2006, also, as a result of cancer. I am sorry for your loss as I can understand what you and your mom must be going through.

Lisa, I'm sorry for your loss. It's sad to lose your dad, mine's been gone 14 years...and my younger sister's been gone 8 years. It's NEVER easy! But...the Lord has gotten me through.

Thanks for your visit tonite and your comment on my drop-leaf table and the Rose chair...and everything else! LOL!!

On your next visit...check out our upcoming Tea Party...and other events.

~Blessings,
Jan

Oh boy, this just gave me goose bumps all over! What a precious post in loving memory of your father. I just have a feeling that he is looking down upon you and beaming with JOY that you love him so much. What a wonderful wish for him to open those marvelous welcoming gates to the place that we will call home someday.

Blessings to you and yours,
Becky

What a great tribute to your dad. I'm so sorry about your loss. My husband's dad passed away in 2004, a month after our 4 year old was born. It definitely stinks! We miss him very much.

On a much light note...Thank you so much for you nice comments on my blog! Yes, paint can transform the ugliest things! My cabinets were a great example! I wish we had the $ for new cabinets but had to use the second best thing! Have a great rest of the weekend!

So sorry for your loss, Lisa. I know how much it hurts. My dad and I were estranged for many years, but when he passed away several years ago, it still hurt tremendously. Hugs to you.
