End of an era

Postby Kickaha » Fri Feb 23, 2018 12:39 pm

I’ve joined those of you who have had bereavements recently, sorry if I didn’t always respond to those posts. I don’t always respond if I don’t feel I have something to add, but sometimes just saying something even if other people have said it is a contribution.

My father passed away yesterday, he was poorly to the point of declining, last time we saw him he didn’t respond, but even so it came out of the blue. In the morning he was there, in the evening not. His influence on my life, from what work I to to my interests, is immense. I cannot but miss his life.

You will not ever miss his life but you will eventually realise his influence on your life is to be celebrated. If not now immediately but in the near future you will rejoice not just to have had him in your life but to have had him be a guiding factor in all you did and have done. My sympathies to you and your family Kickaha. ♥

My deepest sympathy, Kickaha. The wound will be raw for a while, and you will go back and forth from tears to feeling better, then back to tears. I have a quote on my bedroom mirror by Robert Pollok which reads: "Seasons come and go, and go and come, to teach men gratitude." I've often thought the same with the people in our lives. I am grateful for the time I had with my Mom (and Dad) and I'm certain you feel the same about your Dad. I don't know if you are a person of faith...if so, thank the good Lord through your tears, and rest in His comfort.

My very deepest sympathy. Yep, we miss the person that we remember. I know my mother is going to go soon, but I still see her as the lady on the tractor and then cooking dinner at night. I guess we need to remember the good times and the things that were important to them and to us. God bless.

So sorry hear this, Kickaha...

Thank you all for those kind words, really appreciated.

JKEerie faith matters to me, it does indeed fortify one at hard times like this.

So sorry to hear of your dad's passing, Kickaha. Even at my age, I felt a little unmoored when my mom passed away. I think our parents and their influence on our lives becomes even more obvious when they are gone. My deepest sympathies for you and your family.

Thanks Draclvr - I shall have to decide what to say about my father when I do a eulogy at his funeral. I think his influence on my life is exactly what I shall talk about.

I'm a little late here, but you have my deepest sympathy for your loss. I lost mine many years ago but still find myself remembering things he said and did, as you will.

So sorry for your loss Kicka. I lost my mil, bil and cat one right after the other. It takes about a year but you still miss them not being there especially when you're close. Remember the happy times you had together, trust me it will bring a smile :(
