Dad ~ We Miss You

Peace in the Garden by ann marquette

It has been 40 years this month since you left us.
John and I miss you. We can still see your face in our minds, and we keep you lovingly in our hearts.

It was sad when you were so sick for so long. I know you were in a coma the last several days of your time here on earth, and I’m sorry I was not there with you at the end. It was midnight in Ireland where I had been for three weeks with my company, when John called to say you were gone.

We knew your cancer wasn’t curable, but we hoped and prayed for a miracle. But God knew it was time for you to go home. We were happy for you to be at peace and pain free, but we do miss you.

Some months later I woke in the night and swore you stood at the foot of my bed. I had the sense you were trying to take me out of that place.
A couple years later I had a dream that was so real. You and I were talking, face to face, and it was wonderful. Then you began to disappear and left me. I woke sobbing.

You were a good Dad to us, and we are grateful for you in our lives, our hearts.

Love You Dad.
