    What a beautiful yet poignant post…

    You know, he even had an impact on people he never met (in person anyway) you gave us a glimpse of his love and devotion and he was an inspiration. There werent very many pictures without that smile, and it was a smile that made you smile back.

    I am so sorry you lost him so soon. I am glad you got to tell him you loved him and he went on his own time. I am also glad you have his beloved dog Meadow.

    Peace be with you and to your family.

    I am so very sorry. I have lost my parents and two siblings. People say it will get better…. as you know, it is not better, it just feels like pain won’t stab you heart so much that day. I am glad your father left on his own terms and he is out of pain now. May you find some peace and know many have thought of you this past month while you were gone.

    I lost my mom 3 years ago in May and my dad 5 years ago also in May so it is a tough month for me. My dad reminds me of your dad and my parents are always in my thoughts. Sending much sympathy in the loss of your father.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I lost my father year’s ago, unexpectedly and,as another poster pointed out, it doesn’t get better, but it gets easier. It feels miserable now, I know, but you will begin to find yourself reminded of good things, things that make you smile, that you know he would like. You will go places and think, “he would love it here” but the truth is he’s there with you.
    It sounds like you loved him very much and I am glad that you told him you loved and that he loved you back. Those were the last things my father said to me, the last things he said to anyone in this world and I look back on that with some sort of peace.
    Again, I am so very sorry.

    I am so sorry for your loss. I never wanted it to end this way. I kept up with all the post and I am really so very sorry you have to go through this. You are a great daughter and I was so happy to read about the love you two shared. You and your family are in my prayers.

    I am so sorry for your loss, Jennifer. We lost my husband’s father late last year and it has been so devastating.

    Bless you. I am reading backwards catching up on posts and just read about Jason and your nearly losing him and now I’m reading this post. My love and prayers are with you. There are no words to ease the pain and grief. I do know that firsthand. I lost my dad a few years ago and didn’t know how well he was respected and thought of until his funeral and there were not enough seats. People were standing out the back of the funeral home. Anyway. I am truly sorry for your loss. Someone stated he had a smile that made you want to smile back and he did. My hugs are with you.
