Just me

Boy, it has been a long while since I have blogged. It hurts to touch the keys and know that I will be writing a final earthly goodbye to you, my gregarious Daddy.

Daddy, I want you to know that your transformation is bitter sweet to me. I will miss you madly, but you have  always been  in God's hands and he was gracious to you. There was no fear and I hope little pain in your metamorphosis. You are now a new creature, one that I will probably not be able to communicate with again until I join you, as I trust you went into the light. 

I hope that Terry was your guide, but you were loved by many who passed before you and it is hard to say who would have the honor to be your escort. If you are able to watch over me, I pray you will. I know I have not lost your love but it has transcended this time and this space, for now.

I thank God for giving me the opportunity to spend time with you here. Some believe we choose the life we live here and the souls we encounter. If I did, then bully for me for choosing you. You were not perfect and neither was/am I, but we loved each other and this did not waiver. You brought joy and wonderment to my life. Opening my eyes to see the splendor of the world. Your eyes sparkled and your smile and laugh made everyone happy. You always had a song on your lips. May your voice be heard again in heaven and may the Angels join in for a good old fashioned hymn.
