I just received new that my father passed away a couple of days ago.
My deepest condolences on your loss. Prayers up for you and your family. God bless.
So sorry to hear of your loss. May God Bless you and your family at this time.
Prayers for your father and your family.
My condolences and prayers to you and your family.
prayers, so sorry.
My deepest condolences for the loss of your father.
Sorry to hear about your loss. Your family has my prayers.
I’m sorry for you and your family. I’m praying for you and for them. My father passed away last November from a rather suddenly appearing non-small cell carcinoma of the lungs.
Very sorry for your loss.
I remember how I felt when my dad dies suddenly.
It was awful.
dies = died
My condolences: may God bless him and all who mourn him.
Condolences and prayers for you and your family.
I missed being there when my father died as well. It’s hard. I had a dream of him shortly afterwards, it was like a still, formal portrait. He was dressed in a familiar suit and tie and looking very healthy, gazing off into the distance.
It was as if he had sent me a formal portrait of himself in farewell. The dream was a great blessing.
Sorry to hear about your loss. Perhaps there is some comfort in knowing that he did not suffer much or long? I pray your family finds peace in the faith that this is not our home, it is where we find our way home, and that we’ll all be together again in paradise.
My deepest condolences. His decision to go quickly and with strength is one of the greatest gifts he could have given to you and your family. He obviously loved you very much.
I am sorry for your loss and have just sent up a prayer for your father. May he rest in peace, and may angels lead him into paradise.
Prayers for you and your family.
Condolences and prayers for all.
It’s a terrible news to hear especially from so far away. Deepest condolences and prayers for your family.
Condolences to you and your family. May he rest in peace.
Prayers here. Deepest sympathy.
My deepest sympathy. Prayers for your family.
I’m very sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers.
prayers up for you and your family on the loss of your father....
May The Creator keep you and your family safe in this time of turmoil.
My Father died two weeks shy of four years ago. I will never be the same. My world shifted that day.
I still talk to him and I hear echos from the past in reply. There is a poem that helps me sometimes...
I did not die
by Melinda Sue Pacho
Do not stand at my grave and forever weep.
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glints on snow
I am the sunlight on ripened grain
I am the gentle autumn’s rain
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night
Do not stand at my grave and forever cry
I am not there. I did not die.
My mother died this past Jan. I miss her every day.
My deepest condolences. Prayers to you and your family.
My sympathies to you and your family.
Outlaw76, you post has me tearful. My Father passed away on June 19 and we buried him this past Friday. He was 86 and lived a full life and he left a legacy of 6 children, 16 grandchildren and 36 great-grandchildren. I chose this same poem, “I did not die,” for his remembrance folder.
My Father also had lung cancer which he fought valiantly for four years. He was dignified and brave to the end and I will miss him dearly.
The Rose Still Grows Beyond The Wall
By A.L. Frank
Near shady wall a rose once grew,
Budded and blossomed in God’s free light,
Watered and fed by morning dew,
Shedding its sweetness day and night.
As it grew and blossomed, fair and tall,
Slowly rising to loftier height,
It came to a crevice in the wall
Through which there shone a beam of light.
Onward it crept with added strength;
With never a thought of fear or pride.
It followed the light through the crevice’s length
And unfolded itself on the other side.
The light, the dew, the broadening view
Were found the same as they were before;
And it lost itself in beauties new,
Breathing its fragrance more and more.
Shall claim of death cause us to grieve,
And make our courage faint or fall?
Nay; let us faith and hope receive;
The rose still grows beyond the wall,
Scattering fragrance far and wide,
Just as it did in days of yore,
Just as it did on the other side,
Just as it will forevermore.
My great grand Aunt Lou gave me this poem about a year before she died and I treasure it.
I am sorry to hear that. I will pray for you.
Thank you all for your support..
I send condolences to auran and Angelwood...
I hoped I would never see this day, but it has come.
For anyone that is interested, the link below is his Obit:
and a vid tribute (below). He was a Navy SEAL in ‘Nam and passed away as a true Texas lawman.
My hopes and prayers also go out to anyone with family or friends that are suffering from any ailments. I hope when the time comes, they too can rest in peace quickly.
Condolences and prayers your way.
I lost my dad 2 months ago. I think of him every day.
Prayers for your dad. My deepest sympathies to you and your family.
May the love of Jesus Christ, our Savior, surround you and your family Bikkuri.
Your father looks like a very fine man and I know you will have many good memories to cherish of him.
If it's any consolution to you, the fact you weren't there to see him at the end is a mixed blessing.
I pray you will always remember him as he was before the cancer took him. He'd want that.
