My Dad 1923 - 2012

It's so hard for me to imagine a world without my Dad but that time has come.  Dad passed away this weekend.  I miss him so much and my heart is broken.  I'm told it gets easier as time passes but right now that doesn't seem possible.  Thank you for your kind emails, cards, and messages.

Till then.

xoxo

Oh, Liz, I'm so sorry. My deepest condolences to you and your family.

My father passed some years ago. There is still a hole in my heart, but it's not as raw as the memories soften much.

I'm so sorry. It will get easier, but the sense of loss will never go away entirely. In time, though, your good memories will be able to override the pain you're going through right now.

There isn't anything to say really. So sorry for your loss barely even covers a smidgen of the heartbreak you feel when you lose someone you love so much but nevertheless I will say that I am sorry you have to say this sad goodbye to your father.

Best Wishes to you and your whole family.

Oh, what a handsome young man he was! Yes, you'll miss him always, but it does get easier with time. My father died in 1995 when I was 55 years old. I have a handsome picture of him as a young man on my wall!

Condolences to you and your family at this difficult time of parting.
