It was a hard day

Today was my dad's funeral. He passed away on Saturday night. I feel blessed that our family was all there when he took his last breath. I am so happy that he was peaceful when he left this world. Our family has been so blessed to have so many friends and family to support us thru this tough time. He had gone down hill so quickly with his battle against cancer. He had lost so much weight and was so frail. This is how I want to remember him. I will sure miss you dad, eventhough I know you are in a much better place. I will see you again! Love always.

  2. Lisa, I am so sorry to hear about your dad. It is hard to know what to say. Please feel my long distance hug.

    We will pray for you and your family, that you may be at peace in your hearts.

    Jesus is there for you. He knows exactly how you feel. That is one of the reasons he suffered so. He felt every feeling that we have so that He would know how it feels. So that he would know how to help us. He loves you so much. Call upon Him.

    Take care, Janet W ((BIG HUGS))

  4. Lisa, I am sad to learn of your Dad's death. What a privilege and a blessing to be there with him. My Dad also died at Christmas time, December 23, 1990. I thought that Christmas would then be forever sad. But it isn't because I have so many happy memories of family. My prayer is that you will find peace.

  9. Lisa, I am just reading blogs from the holidays and was so sorry to read of your dad's passing. It wasn't long ago that you posted about his illness ~ we don't want anyone to linger but it's hard to part with them. My sympathies to you and your family. Alice
