Yesterday we said goodbye to a great man, my sweet Daddy!
The day was actually wonderful. Not because he is gone from this life but because we got to acknowledge his greatness, celebrate his achievements, and be surrounded by those that were blessed to have him as part of their life.
I smiled a lot yesterday thinking how my Dad would have cringed at the arrangement of his funeral service because he was so thrifty and never liked a big fuss over anything especially himself. But it was perfect and he would have grinned from ear to ear knowing that we were at the Drumminor where he once worked when it was restaurant. He would have laughed at our stories, been touched by the musical choices and felt honoured to see his guests in the room.
The tears rise when I realise I won’t get to make new memories with my Daddy. And my heart, stomach and brain all throb in pain when I think about never being hugged by him again or seeing him dance in his kitchen. But the memories will remain and I will never live in misery for his death only with joy, love and happiness for his life.
I will miss you incomprehensibly Daddy. You will always be in my heart. Thank you for the life you gave me ❤️
