We say goodbye

Dad passed away last evening.

There is sadness, some relief knowing Dad no longer has to struggle day to day and peace knowing he is with Mom.

The loss of both of my parents in nine months is too much.   They had a long life together, 64 years in fact.  They had a good run.

And for those of us left behind, we will move forward, one step at a time.

I am so sorry, Debbie.
Losing our parents is hard - no matter how old we ourselves are, how much we have accomplished. They are our parents and have played such an important role in our life.
I miss my parents every day. I don't think this will change very much.
Wishing you strength and faith.

I'm sorry about your lost Debbie. Loosing both parents so close together is difficult. I went through the same thing with my dad and 9 months later it was my mom. They have been called home and are in eternal peace now. Wishing you strength and courage for the days ahead. It's a tough way to start a new year.
Hugs,
JB

I would give you a long, strong bear hug if I could, just to try and ease your pain a bit. I haven't had to say good-bye to a parent yet, but enough friends and acquaintances have died the last few years to leave some holes in my heart and life.

Awww Debbie, I'm so sorry for you and your family to go through this so soon. But it does give some comfort knowing your parents are now together forever again. It's hard losing parents, but they loved you dearly I'm sure. Sixty four years is an amazingly long time together! Take care, and hugs and prayers to you,

Awww, I am so sorry for your loss. Especially losing both parents so close together. I lost my Mom almost 3 years ago, my parents had been together for 62 years. My heart broke for you when I read your post. Take care and just take 1 day at a time and you will get there.
