Never ill in working life, having retired he sadly succumbed to cancer. He would want to be remembered for whom he was in health

    I Miss You Dad

    You never said “I’m leaving”
    You never said “goodbye”
    You were gone before I knew it,
    And only God knew why.

    There are no words to tell you
    Just what I feel inside
    The shock, the hurt, the anger
    Might gradually subside

    A million times I’ll need you
    A million times I’ll cry
    If Love alone could have saved you
    You never would have died

    In Life I loved you dearly
    In death I love you still
    In my heart you hold a place
    That no one could ever fill

    It broke my heart to lose you
    But you didn’t go alone
    For part of me went with you
    The day God took you home

    Things will never be the same
    And all though it hurts so bad
    I will smile whenever I hear your name
    And be proud you were my Dad.

    Well its near that time of year again,
    A time when i was sad,
    A time when you left me,
    I miss you DAD

    My tears will be of sadness,
    But i will also be glad,
    Because you do not suffer,
    Because you are my Dad

    This always asks to share a memory...I have sooooo many :-) coosing one is always difficult...however this time I had a dream about my dad the other night (probably due to the fact that I knew the anniversary of his death was near)

    In the dream,which was actually a faint memory I think. I dreamt of my dad coming home one evening from work with a friend or two ,one a huge bear of a guy with a bushy beard and hair to match..They were all merrily tipsy laughing and joking around.Dad had a stuffed toy (a buffalo ! ) for my son who was very young at the time..They insisted on waking him up to receive this gift much to mine and my mums annoyance ! and my sons delight...not at the gift but at the sight of his granda and his mates being silly ....still got the Buffalo in the attic somewhere .This happened over 30 years ago ....
    next time I will share another of my memories with you...I have over 50 years worth
    love you always Dad
    your princess xxxxxx

    Dear Dad

    I thought of you today,but that is nothing new,
    I thhought about you yesterday,and days before that too.
    I think of you in silence,I often speak your name,
    All I have are memories ,ans a picture in a frame,
    Your memory is a keepsake,from which I'll never part
    God has you in his arms,I have you in my heart

    I wanted to call you today to say I love you, but your old number is no longer in service. I tried the operator but she said sorry I have no number for you. I tried to go to your house but you don't live there anymore. The post office has no forwarding address. I guess heaven is just to far away. I love you, I miss you. You are in my heart always.

    I pinched this from my sons status on Facebook...as ever thinking of his beloved granda ...
    miss you as much as ever dad 'specially at Christmastime xxxx
