a place...

this world has lost a charming man..

my hero...

my dad..

:(

gone from this place..but onto a beautiful, painfree place amongst the clouds..

a place where he laughs, hunts, and fishes once again with his father and a son.. and holds his mother's hand....

a place where he'll wait for the rest of us to travel to..

tho this place seems very far away...his place in my heart is just a thought away.

i will miss you dad.

Nobody Knows it But Me


There's a place that I travel, When I want to roam

And nobody knows it but me.

The roads don't go there, And the signs stay home

And nobody knows it but me.

It's far, far away and way, way afar,

It's over the moon and the sea,

And wherever you are going, That's wherever you are

And nobody knows it but me.

-Patrick O'Leary

Sandy, sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. Even though we know they are now pain free, it's still sad to see them go.
That's a lovely poem, makes me think of my Mom and my Sister...........

Love, and hugs, and peace to you, my friend. I am just so sorry to hear of your loss.

I have this idea that our parents are our compass, that while they share the planet with us they help us find our way. When they leave us, we feel lost, untethered, and directionless; our compass has gone. Then slowly, over time, we realize that while we have lost them as our compass, we have everything they taught us, everything they shared. We have their memory. And at some point we discover that they left us with the tools to make our own compass and to carry on. Every time we check that compass, we remember who helped us build it....

Sandy, I've just now seen this. I'm so sorry. What a loss. I know how hard it is to lose a parent, sometimes you feel adrift in a big, wide sea...Just hang in there and lean on those who love you.

Thinking of you, sister-

Sandy: I am sorry to read of your loss. My own Dad died in January so I know a bit about what you must be feeling. It takes a while and I am still not completely adjusted to life without my Dad but I am glad that he is no longer suffering. I wish you and your family peace and happier times. Jen
