My scheduled time to sit vigil by your bed
was one o’clock this afternoon.
I was there, but you were gone.
I am so sorry for your loss. May he Rest in Peace. Sending my condolences and hugs. ❤
Sorry for your loss Shawn. My dad died three years ago and I still miss him.
Sorry to hear about your loss. Your words have touched a stranger (me) in cyberspace.
(((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.
Mes sympathies…I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Cheryl-Lynn
I’m sorry for your loss. ❤
You are the grand lady he raised. That will never go away.
Sending big hugs. I am so sorry for your loss, Shawn, and I’m hoping that you’ll have everything you need–including lots of support from your circle of friends and family–so that you may move through this time as best you can. ❤
Sending you prayers for comfort and healing as you weather this great loss..
Sorry for your loss, my mum left yesterday too 🌺💐
Blessings on you.
I hope God Blesses you Herb
It’s difficult to know what to say but I sincerely feel for your loss.
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. 🕐
condolence. Be strong.
Shawn, having faced the same thing exactly six months, I feel your pain. I am sorry for your loss and hope you can pray for him and also be happy.
I’m sorry for your loss, Shawn. May he rest in peace.
My heart goes out to you with blessings and prayers. I lost my mother 7/25/02. It’s never easy when a piece of you move on while the whole remains behind.
Powerful piece. I am feeling your loss also. Sorry
Feeling that. 😦
I lost my mom a year ago. We are never ready…
I’m sorry for your loss– wishing comfort and peace to you and your family
