Goodbye Daddy...

My Dad passed away at 4:46 this morning. I already knew. I woke up about ten minutes before. Alex came in to my room at 4:50 this morning, saying she got woken up by something. I know it was Daddy. He loved her so much. Mom and my two older kids and myself went to the hospital this morning to say our final goodbye. It was so hard. Mom was a wreck. For all her stoicism, she was laid low, stretched across his bed, telling him how much she loved him and how a part of her was now missing. Killed me. I kissed him goodbye several times, and rubbed his head and shoulders.

About three hours later we got ready to go, and we asked that the nurse take the pictures that Alex drew, and we had taped up on the wall be removed and sent to the funeral home with him, they will be cremated with him. I think he would have wanted that.

My Dad was a hard man, and we have been at odds many times in my life. I am just so thankful that the last eight years were good, and that I was able to be with him before he passed. There is more to write, more to tell..things that happened over the last three days...but right now, I have no more words. I have to save them for when Alex wakes up and I have to tell her that her Papa is gone...although I think she already knows.

Until next time...

Rest in peace Daddy. We love you. Watch over us. Say hi to the family who left before you. See you on the flip side....
