Another loss for me

Well I was dealt another blow. My dad died last Thursday (21st). Only 19 months since I lost my mom. He was at home and had a major stroke. He was 75. He'd had a stroke last October. He died instantly from what we can tell. I'm having a hard time with this because I'd just talked to him that morning and he was fine. We can narrow it down to him passing away about 45 minutes after I talked to him. Still hard to believe he's gone. I won't be on here much. I'm the executor of his estate so I have a lot on my plate right now. I'll pop in when I can.

Sizz, I am also sorry to hear about your dad. Please remember to take some time for yourself during this busy and stressful time. Don't forget to lean on members of your family or friends for help, if needed.

Hugs, SC

Thanks Luvs and Sierra! I'm trying Sierra......its hard though. I'm the type of person that tends to hold their feelings inside around people. I've got the ole', "I'm okay" down pat. Its so much easier hiding behind this monitor. I feel such an emptiness inside. I've now lost 3 very important people in my life.....my parents and my brother. I only hope and pray that the lord give me some peace for many many years before I have to experience this kind of pain again. I'll be okay though.....its just going to take some time. Thanks again!
