Three years ago today I stood beside my Dad as he took his last breaths in his fight against lung cancer. We are going to the cemetery today to place flowers and let his grandchildren see his headstone.

Give your Daddy a hug today and tell him you love him!

I miss him SO much.
I love you, Dad.

May 16 will be 16 years that my dad's been gone. I know he's with me, watching me, holding my hand. Just like your dad is with you.

Take comfort in your wonderful memories of him.

Hugs to you, Jennifer!

Last night I started crying because I missed my own daddy so much... and he died in 2000.

The pain gets less raw over time, but I still miss him because he was such an important part of my life.

May our memories of our daddies remind us of the important ways that they shaped us over the years.

Hugs!

Hi Jennifer. I read your blog regularly and I just had to let you know that today you made me cry. I just lost my precious dad on January 30th after losing my mom one year to the date last year. It's been really tough, but somehow it helps to know that life goes on and although I will always miss him, I want to honor his life by living my best life. It would make him happy. I wish you peace.

Thoughts and prayers to you and your family. I lost my Dad to an accidental drowning 19 yrs ago and my Mother to alzheimers 17 yrs ago and it seems like yesterday. But the last words I ever said to both of them was I love you. Those three words are so important. Like someone else said, the hurt gets easier and the memories more precious. God Bless.

Thank you for this powerful reminder. I lost my dad in January 2000. He was proud he made it to the next millieum. But I will hug my mom...she needs one right now.

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your father. I lost my dad 2 1/2 years ago to cancer. I know exactly how you feel. Anniversary dates are SO hard. I know I wish I could only turn back the clock and spend just one more day with him.

My thoughts are with you. May your father be in your dreams tonight.

Maija said...

I am grieving for your loss, and with you. My mom died from lung cancer 9/2007, and it was awful watching her die.
