One chapter ends, Another chapter starts

Post by gutemensch » Mon Oct 19, 2020 6:12 am

Too much to rant about but rants are just about anger and I am not angry. So, thank you, dad, for allowing me to look after you for the past five and a half years and the past seven months as your care giver. The time you and I spent together is some of the best times we shared. The talks, stories, jokes, and just watching tv together will be something I treasure. It's time no one else got to experience with you. That in your final moments, you opened your eyes and made eye contact with me and then my wife then the smile you left on your face. You know you were loved and we loved you.

Thank You Dad, it was an honor to have care for you and an experience I would not trade. The joy we shared now overshadows the pain of your loss.

Very sorry to hear that.

I lost my Mother in 1982 and my Father 25 years later, after being his carer for most of that time. The loss tears you apart. Nothing I can say at the moment is likely to help you in you time of need.

However, please accept my sincere condolences.

Condolences for your loss.

You've been truly blessed in having been able to look after him for the past five and a half years as well as providing care during the last months of his life.

May friends and family provide you with much comfort and may you find solace in your memories of your time together with him.

It was an experience I wouldn't trade away for anything. What defines family now to me.

What's fixing to happen. I'll give away to anyone that wants it.

What a wonderful time you spent with your dad and such a magnificent sharing.

I feel the love. Truly touches my heart.

Thinking of you and your family, during this time.
I think it's part of what makes a family stronger.
Good food, lots of conversation and memories to share
