You will be always with us…i will always hear you calling my name…. I lost all faith that night. I have written and published three books, the kind I know you would love me to read to you. The funeral would be held tomorrow at 10am. Tell your children, from the time that they can walk, that the world is theirs for the taking. I knew I needed to say something at his funeral, but I couldn't find the words.
Whether they passed away when they were young or when they were grown losing a dad or loved one is the hardest thing. My father was my only hero I could look up to, the only person I could talk to who would listen to me. Know that my heart is always with you and I always wish you were here with me. My father died in October last year of stomach cancer. I saw him take his last breath, it's something I will never forget. However, the gentleman that he was is what I cherish most of him.
I feel so angry at so many people and so boggled it bothers me so much he wont be there to share the great and bad moments in my life he always was there for me in the hard time he would take me out of bad situations, talk to me help me understand. He got a parisite called a liver fluke. He had Pancreatic Cancer 20 years ago and it was a miracle that he survived that. People who cross the road rather than figure out what to do or say are cowards. In order for your kids to feel close to you, they need to feel like they truly know you. As you may know he was my accountant for many years and always looked after my business affairs to perfection, with unfailing accuracy and patience at my disorganised book-keeping… I know he had a very happy family life and was devoted to you all — lucky man. The last time I saw him it was the week of my 17th birthday and he said with every bit of energy he had to say I love you boo and that was the last thing he said.
I had to pay for my own clothes, haircuts and if I want to play sports I have to figure out how to make the money. I don't know why this had to happen, but I have to trust that it was for a reason and it will affect me for the rest of my life. This poem is so very poignant. I love him and always will. We are planning my wedding and I will miss the fact that I won't be able to call him, seek advice, spend time with him or have him walk down the aisle with me. I love You Daddy Bear. I miss him dearly this poem touched my heart and I am very thankful for you sharing this beautiful poem.
But I always saw your face. He died from metastatic lung cancer. You were truly my hero. My father died on August 29th, 2011 at the age of 58. The way it can sneak up on you. Daddy raised us kids with respect, love and honor.
This poem gave me release to my feelings for the first time since he died. The next time I asked to play with your dolls, I made your mother cry. It seems you miss someone more as times goes on rather than less and it still feels like yesterday I was with him. He died exactly ten years after my mom passed away. But most of all don't give up always keep on trying, and that things can be worse. I see you in so many faces.
We prayed constantly for Medicaid to go through so that he could get a liver transplant. He was and still is my hero, this poem brings tears to my eyes. I am the biggest Daddy's girl. And how much love means. He left behind three children and a wife who is currently battling cancer. I was older, but you always stood up for me, saying that if you did a good deed you would get a reward.
We got back to the house and it was still sunny but raining over the bike. I wrote this letter of condolence when my first boss died and I wanted to express my sympathy to her surviving daughter. I can relate to you so much because I am only 20 years old. Have fun fishing and playing poker in Heaven, and know that I'll be joining you with my pole, ready to spit in the water when I get up to Heaven too. I miss him a lot, and when I was growing up he was in and out of jail because of his drinking. It went from a dad taking care of his daughter, to a daughter taking care of her dad. Anyway, I hope you like it! I find the whole thing utterly fucking ridiculous.
Write a letter to someone in your life that has passed away. It's exactly how I feel. My father passed away six months back from brain cancer. The company loved me but Fired me. Either way, the letters below can be a source of inspiration and comfort offering expressions of love and support while offering promises of better tomorrows.
And I do know that he was very highly respected throughout this community. He is an ordained Elder. Give everyone the respect and kindness that they deserve. I was his one child that stayed by his side for the month and a half fight. Bailey Sellers shares a photo of her father's card addressed to her on her 21st birthday.
