  •  I want you all to know that (20+ / 0-)

    every word ..every sentence has comforted me at this time.  I am in a fog of sorts and been down for a couple of days and did not know why.  Daddy was telling me he loved me over and over yesterday.   He broke his hip back in December and I am so fortunate to have had him this long.   He had Alzheimers but was pretty spry.   He was doing well.....Well when I had my post up my sister called and said, he had asked for a cup of coffee...  He drank it and fell into a coma/sleep.   He never woke up.   They hooked him to a machine but he is gone.  I did not want that.  I am heading to Georgia tomorrow morning as leaving tonight will not bring him back.   That machine will keep him superficially but he is gone and I know that.  My aunt told me she knew he was gone at 9...Just that fast.
    Not sick.  Just tired.

    The songs, the sympathies..the beautiful Go Rest High on the Mountain is ..was ..Daddy's favorite.  My little one finally laid down.. She cried herself to sleep.   Tears are streaming on my face because I know I was the pick..and we were close.  I am sad but will keep all of your thoughts and comments close to me as if OPOL had not done this diary I would have been in so much worse shape.  I am /was a Daddy's girl.   My Mother passed in April 04.  
    I love you all.  thank you and God bless you all.
    I will check back in when I get back....
    I was planning on seeing him on the 1st for the meetup in Ga.   Well.  I guess that is not possible now.  This is the last time we were together , and the other was a tribute to him....Thank you beautiul people..

    I plan on contacting OPOL and Racheltracks after all this is  finalized.   I would not have made it through the night very well without your thoughts.
