Hey, all. Pop slipped away peacefully last night at 8:14 pm. I'm going to miss him terribly but know he's finished suffering and in a much better place. Thanks for your support these past weeks.

Peace,

John

John,
I am so sorry for your loss. I remember that it was difficult to let my father go a few years ago. He was able to be on hospice for the last year of his life and went very quickly one night after watching a baseball game (his passion) on television. I feel his presence with me every day and am so fortunate that I was able to heal the wounds of our past before he passed. Please know you always have my support!

My fraternal brother, John.

I offer you my condolences on the passing of your father.

A loving father and son now seperated.

I am sure that he has earned his place in heaven from being a great father. You will meet again in love forever into eternity.

My prayers go out to you and your family.

God Bless & heal well.

Pete..Irishmoose.

Buried Pop today. Held it together pretty well. A little choked up at the end of the graveside service. Many family members came up to me to hug me and thank me for taking such good care of my parents. Made the day bittersweet. Hoping I can get some sleep tonight.

Peace,

John

Some pics of my father:


With his parents (my grandparents) at Niagra Falls, around 1930.


May 9, 1953, with Mom and her parents on Mom and Pop's wedding day.


A very recent picture of Pop, just months before we lost him.

Thanks for looking.

Peace,

John

I'm just seeing this thread now... still exploring the boards, I guess. Anyway, this hits home for me as well - both my parents and two of my siblings are gone. Like you, my dad was a wonderful role model and excellent father.

I hope you are doing better. I am not the standard religious type, but I do have my own system of beliefs. And I will light a candle for you, and one for him. Our ancestors never go anywhere truly, they look down at us every night when we look up at the night sky and see the stars.
