Thursday, 9/3/2009 at 11:37AM I lost my beloved father. Myself and my sisters sat by his side holding his hands when he crossed over to be with our heavenly father, playing gospel music and singing. Dad loved gospel music and I know he could hear this beautiful music. It has been a week since his death and today is the first time I could write about our father.
Is this a dream ??? NO IT IS REAL, he was 89 years old and four days away from his 90th birthday. My heart is breaking, but I know, I would not bring him back to pain and suffering.
He was a decorated war hero, winning the 2nd highest metal for bravery "THE SILVER STAR" in WW2 and our hero.
We each expressed our good-byes, our family circle now has a huge gap---but one day it will be connected again. Dad will live in my heart always.
