My Daddy

Smiling Sally's Blue Monday Meme

I have sad news to report. My Dad passed away peacefully at home
on 6/6.
We were with him and I was so proud of how our whole family
handled his care since he was sent home from the hospital
on 1/7. Someone was with my Mom around the clock helping to care of him.
 If you have elderly parents please spend a lot of time
with them. I will miss him horribly but know he is in a better
place and breathing easily.  I know he is with his older sister
and Parents along with my Mom's,  Parents in Heaven.  Two of my sisters
have said they have already received signs from him.  Later
when I have more time I am going to scan some of the older
photos I have of him. He looked so awesome in his Coast
Guard uniform! 
Here a copy of what was written on his webpage at the funeral home.

Oh Joy,

I am so very sorry for your loss. It is wonderful to note that he had his family demonstrating their love for him.

Thanks for sharing.

A time we all must face. Time takes care of a lot of the pain. I have been with all my family including a 10 year old girl, so I understand what you are going through. I worked for the telephone company for 40 years.

I am so sorry for your loss. I am also grateful for memories and photos. We share so much with these precious bits of the tapestry of our lives. God bless you all! When my uncle Louie passed away in 1990 I said Lord let me have a sign that he is ok. My uncle was married later in life, had no children but treated all the nieces and nephews so wonderfully. He invested well and made a lot of money. He would give his money away and it would come up to him! So I said Lord would you let him toss me a penny or something? Well, lots of times I find pennies or nickels etc and even once had a dollar bill blew under my shoe while walking! I do love those signs and he is the only one I get them from. I am grateful and thank God that he is there with him. I want to send my love to you and yours and a big Colorado hug. Take care.

Condolences on the sad passing of your father, Joy. May you and your family be well and remember him with love.

You left a comment on my blog asking what the blue flowers were in a photo I published. They are Felicia amelloides (blue daisy, blue marguerite), which is a species of flowering plant of the family Asteraceae, native to South Africa. F. amelloides is synonymous with, and formerly known as, F. aethiopica, Aster amelloides, Aster capensis, and Aster coelestis. It is a perennial and repeat flower many times.


Deepest sympathy to you and your family.
