Topic: Dad Journey Ended

I made it back to Ohio last Monday and Dad passed on Thursday June 27th. We were all here with him as he passed.  He had slipped into a coma his last two days, but we knew he could here some of what we said to him.  The past few days have been a big blur with his funeral this past Wed.  He had over 600 people come to his viewing alone.  The amount of love and support that has been given to our family from the community, family and friends has been amazing!  I will greatly miss my Dad.  May his live forever!

A huge thanks to all of you for your continued love, support and wisdom!

Re: Dad Journey Ended

Dearest Rena I am so very sorry to read about your Dad. I know that you know he is now at Peace. Your parents certainly were loved and very well thought of, my goodness, 600 people to wish him a good Journey. Please accept my humble condolences, you are a wonderful daughter and I just know he is very proud of you! Rena you know I love to send poems and if you don't mind I would like to send this one from Dad to Mom:

If I should be the first to go,
And leave you alone, my Dear,
Let not your heart be lonely,
Nor in your eyes a tear.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
I’ll not be far away,
With petals of love and tenderness,
I’ll pave for you the way.
To join me in our sanctuary,
And ne’er again we’ll part.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
I live within your heart.
Take joy again in living,
As you did in years gone by;
God knows what of he’s doing,
And not be questioned why.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
My life with you on earth
Each moment filled with happiness,
And love so few be worth.
I’ll be waiting for you Sweetheart
Where skys are ever blue,
With eager heart and open arms
Patiently, for you.
Grieve not for me, my Darling,
May faith and my love keep.
Your soul filled with contentment
Eternally, I sleep.
