Celebrating Dad

 
Dad passed away
a little after midnight today
his suffering is over
I was by his side
at the end
 
 
Mom is sleeping still
no need to wake her to tell her
the days ahead
will be difficult
 
 
We will celebrate his life

Sorry for your loss. Losing a parent is never easy, losing a spouse after so many years would be even harder I think. Praying for you and your mom and wishing you warm memories.
