My scheduled time to sit vigil by your bed

was one o’clock this afternoon.

I was there, but you were gone.


RIP, Daddy.

    (((HUGS))) . . . .

    So sorry Shawn. Hope you’re doing OK. Reading this was so powerful- it had a childlike naivety about it, perfect to capture the bond between father and daughter. “I was there, but you were gone”. May he forever be in your heart.

    Tough times, my dad has been gone a while now, but the value of what he was to me has never diminished, and perhaps has somehow even grown. Wishing you well in your dark hour. 🕐
