Hi LP, Sorry to hear about your dad. You have to remember to take care of yourself too. It's easy to get caught up in running back and forth and everything that goes with it. I pray that your dad continues to rest easy and for you and your family.

Thanks everyone for your prayers, thoughts, support, encouragement, hugs, love. I still need it all.
You still have it all. I'm glad you feel at peace and I hope your sister finds peace too.

PAG said it well for what I am sure is many of us.
No matter how simple it seems, it's complicated.

Thank you all so much for your kind words and love.

PAG, my sister is very much at peace. We have had two good long talks and are on the same page on everything.

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow;
I am diamond glints of snow;
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush;
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds encircled flight
I am the soft star that shines at night
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.

Laurie, I'm sorry for you loss and, be sure, I know how you feel..
It will hurt for the rest of your life, and there will be days where it's better and there are days, when it is really bad.
And there will be this moments, when it strucks you out of the sudden, like it does now with me - the moments when you think you get along with that and something happens that makes you miss him like hell.

Life will never be the same without his love, his words, his humor... but it is still there, it's inside you and noone can take this away from you, it's his treasure he gave to you.

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"
