My dad passed away this morning
Monday, August 01, 2011
Just wanted to thank all my Spark friends for your prayers, thoughts, and well wishes. His passing was quiet and peaceful and i'm certain that he is in a much, much better place now! He is having a happy reunion with my mom and my brother, and his Maker.
Everyone who met my dad fell in love with him instantly - especially children - because he is gentle, kind, funny, and compassionate. I wish everyone could have a father like him. I miss him so very much.
I feel tired already and dread all the arrangement planning, paperwork, and legal stuff that comes next, but i suppose it's all necessary.
Tonight i'm subbing a Zumba class. Focusing on giving a good workout to a full class will help get my mind off of my grief, at least for a little while. I'm pretty sure my dad would want me to jump back into life as soon as possible.
