Still Numb

I am still very numb everything seems so surreal . I heard from the coroner and he determined that my Dad had a massive heart attack, he would have not even known. I feel very blessed to have had some extra time with him. But I do miss him so very much. We will be having a viewing tomorrow, and a celebration of life service on Sunday.

I know there could have not been any better circumstances for his passing and I am so happy he was here with his Grandchildren boy did they love him so.

Thank you so much for all your thoughts and prayers left here and in emails, it means so much to us at this time.

My mom and sister will be arriving here any minute now and I know this will reopen the still very fresh pain, but an grateful that we well be able to grieve together and support one another through the coming days.

Here is the song that my Dad wanted played at the celebration of life service, the River By Garth Brooks

Oh Kelly, Please accept my most sincere sympathy on the death of your Dad. How very painful this must be for you, but I'm so very glad that you were able to spend some precious moments with him over the past month.

You are right, God does have a plan and I believe that our lives are already planned out for us before we even arrive on this place we call earth.

I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers over these next few months. You are going to need all the spiritual support you can get.

Your Dad chose a nice song. We played this at the memorial service for background music when my brother passed away a few months ago.

Peace and comfort to you and your family during this difficult time.

Big hugs,

I'm so sorry to hear about the death of your father. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. It's coming up on two years since my dad died and I still have days that I just can't believe it's true. But each day does get better. Enjoy those around you, none of us know when it's out time to go.
Hugs to you!

I am so sorry for your loss. I have not experienced the loss of a parent yet and can not imagine the pain that you must be feeling. What a blessing it was to have your Dad with you for these last few weeks. I hope that you are able to find comfort with your loved ones.

I hope you can feel the love and concern that surrounds you right now. You have so many people, besides your immediate family and friends who are with you, who care. I hope you find joy in your memories and peace in the knowledge that you had extra time with your dad and he died what must have been a quick and fairly painless death. May God bless you all.

I am sooo stunned. I just got back from holidays and was looking at your blog. I am very sorry for your family's loss. I am so glad that you had the time together that you did.

I know there's nothing we can say to make the pain go away. I'm so, so sorry. Numb is okay, you don't have to take on all the emotions all at once. The nurse in me who has helped others through it and gone through it myself will tell you to take care of yourself. People will want to feed you but your body may be in shock, too. Just try to get as much rest as you can. We're thinking about you! Linda

My prayers are with your family during your time of grief. What a wonder song by Garth. God has a plan for everything and the fact he was with you was a part of that plan. Cherish your memories.
