I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. ALS is such a nasty disease. I loved your fishing story when you wrote it back at Father's day and it's soo special now to see it again. Please know that my prayers are with you and your family. ***hugs*** kris
Love your "Memories of Your Dad"...My dad made the mistake of taking 5year-old me to the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade...I sat on his shoulders, he said it was "freezing out" but I never noticed....his mistake? I wanted to go every year after that.....the next year, thinking he would "distract me with an alternate plan" we went stopped at an amusement park on the way to Grandma's for Thanksgiving ...he never stopped talking about the "Ferris wheel that I insisted we ride on...that got stuck with us way up on top." The next time we passed one of those places with rides he talked my mom into joining me. After that they avoided all parks with rides. My next op was "Teacups" at Disney World in Fla....I was all grown up by then....but that didn't stop me from getting very sick. Now aren't you glad we're friends?
It seems this is a bad week for us both. I am so deeply sorry to hear about your dad and I thought your tribute lol was so moving. I have no doubt that he would have loved it. The memories will last far past the pain. Try to remember that.
Well, I totally understand. I've lost both parents now. Dad to Cancer in 2000, and Mom to a stroke in 2006. It's a hard thing to go through, and life moves on. But I hope knowing he isn't suffering anymore helps ease the pain in your heart. It will get better... just takes awhile! My thoughts and prayers are with you.
