For my Daddy

  • on: March 10, 2012, 05:39:38 PM
We buried my daddy last Saturday at age 90.  He had a wonderful life.  Thus the reason I know for my depression today.  So in memory of him, I dedicate this video by his favorite cousin and longtime best friend.  Missing them both  :cry:  Possibly before your time, but in my childhood a constant.

Sending Love & Strength your way in this time of your heartache.  It's very hard to lose a parent at any age I think.  I lost my Mother over 20 years ago but can still remember the feeling of that moment like it was yesterday.  Mothers (and Fathers) are the ones who shaped us and were there to take care of us from our earliest memories.  Losing the cornerstone of my foundation left such a void even though I was grown with children of my own.  I almost felt like I didn't know who I was supposed to "be" anymore.  It didn't take me long to realize though that the part of my Mother that she so carefully and lovingly instilled in me was always going to be there as long as I nurtured it.  That realization happened after her services when several people approached and complimented me on being "so much like your Mom" and how great that was.  I miss her still and often wonder how differently my life might have gone if she was still here...but I accept that all things happen for some reason or purpose and it's not for us to question their timing.  I'm glad that your Father had a long and wonderful life and that you had him with you as long as you did.  I can tell you loved him very much and I bet he loved you right back the same.  The intensity of the pain will ease over time but you will always miss him.  Hugs to you and prayers for healing.

A big Thank You though for the music.  It's really nice to be taken back to the good ol' days when life was so much simpler and sweeter.

I'm so sorry hesouttamylife.  I love my Dad so much and it hurts to imagine how you feel.  You will always keep his memory alive and take comfort from that, and knowing that he had a long and wonderful life.

Oh sweetie....my thoughts and prayers are with you.  I have been down that road and know your pain all too well.  My dad is always with me...I think about him everyday.  Music has always played such an important factor in my life.  May the music of his sweet memories live on in your heart forever.......he will be with you always. 
I am sending out a showering of blessings to you and your family.....love you.

PS> I also picked one star in the night sky to gaze upon and think of him....as I did with my mother and grandmother.  It's just my special personal dedication/remembrance thing......it always makes me smile to see his "star"

Blessing Always

I'm also sorry to hear about your daddy. I lost mine way too soon, as well as my mom, and they are both in my thoughts every day. I still miss them even though it's been years and I don't think that will ever change. I am thankful though that I have fond memories to hold on to.

You'll be in my prayers.

Blessings

He is so fortunate to have lived to be 90!  My stepfather is 92.  I'm sorry you're feeling sad....maybe you can make a journal and write all the things you loved about him and some things he used to say.

Thank you for the music- great stuff!

Your Dad lived for 90 years and had a good life- wonderful! Of course you are missing him but things will get better over time.
My own Dad will be 90 this year and my MOM will be 89. They have both had spells in hospital during January and they are now back in their home with daily assistance from the health care services.

My Dad has always loved music, magic and  Charlie Chaplin. He enjoyed making drawings of Charlie when he was younger. And he used to be an amateur magician.

However, we have totally different tastes in music LOL! Each to their own!

Sorry to get long winded.
Anyways take care and think on the bright side!

Music always helps I feel! bearhug

Dear hesouttamylife.....I don´t know you and you don´t know me....but I really feel your loss. He was 90 and he had a good life you say. That is a wonderful thing and we thank God for this blessing....but still....he was your dad and that leaves you with that vast feeling of loss and grief. But remember....he´s still your dad and even though he´s not with you any more here in this life, he will always be by your side. One day, hopefully far away from today, you will be together again. Until then rejoice in your memories. Everyone loved will never be forgotten.

Here´s something for you:
All Is Well

Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped into the next room
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used
Put no difference in your tone,
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was,
Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It it the same as it ever was, there is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near,
Just around the corner.
All is well.

Wishing you strength and courage.
With love

Hesouttamylife...my heartfelt condolences go out to you and your family.  I, too, have experienced the pain of losing a dad...my dad passed away when I was 17, he was 52.  The fact that your dad was 90 and lived a wonderful life, although great to hear and great for you to have witnessed....still doesn't take the sting of loss away.  Time is a friend, though....as it helps to lessen the pain of loss and replace it with memories of laughter shared, moments experienced, and gratitude for the priceless love we got to feel and witness with those who graced our lives.  My thoughts and prayers are with you....always.

For you, hesouttamylife...and for all who have experienced the loss of a loved one...

This is why I know that this forum will always be a part of me.  Thank you for the comforting words and encouragement.  When I first came here, led unquestionably by Michael Jackson, I knew that I was in the right place for me.  It feels like home.  I would have shriveled up and faded away from depressionand hopelessness had it not been for this forum and you guys, who are the best  bearhug  Sometimes it gets a little rocky, but isn’t that just the way families behave?  So we take a licking and keep on ticking.  Let bygones be bygones and forge ahead with the business of the day.  No grudges, no hate, just love for each other and the Maestro himself.

My father lived a good life, full of joy and friendships and family.  He suffered an incident less than 2 years ago that led to him losing his independence.  It wasn’t all down hill and there were mny months of him being his old self again.  But we felt his spirit dying.  When you lose your spirit, you lose yourself and then you just kinda give up.  :cry:  I guess that is what saddens me most, seeing the light go out in his eyes little by little untl it was completely extinguished., because he was such a firecracker as long as I can remember.  He never let things, issues, get in the way and wisely told me that life is always filled with problems that we will never be able to solve, but we could give it our best shot and lend a helping hand.  If we didn’t solve it, at least we made it more difficult for it to hang around.  8-)  That was his philosophy for most things.  Do what you can at least.  If you’re not a part of the solution, you become a part of the problem.  But you can’t do it alone so work together.

I will surely miss him  :cry:  90 years is a Blessing so I know I am blessed to have had him all of my life.  That over whelming sadness gripped me yesterday I know because of it representing that "1st" that we all experience when we lose a loved one.  The first week, the first birthday, the first father’s day, and all the firsts to come.  He will be missed dearly, but I know that he is always with me.  So if I come here a little dog earred at times, just offer me a little soft spot, in the corner in the back of the room to lay my head for a minute.  It’ll clear and I will be okay  bearhug

Thanks again for the kindness.  You just don’t know how grateful I am that you are here. 

Love you more as Michael always said.  Isn’t it funny how we know exactly what he meant when so many just didn’t get it.

How wonderful that you shared with us an image of the kind of person your Daddy was.  It's those same wonderfully caring yet strong characteristics that will carry you through this time of sorrow and will bring a sense of peace to your heart.  I have no doubt that your Daddy will continue to live on through you forever.  You will be just fine with time.

The loss of a parent is devastating no matter the age of either child or parent.  Great choice for a tribute to him, though.  So full of life and joy!
