“Dad”

  

Description from MoonBell: I got a call just after 2am from my Mom this morning. My dad had passed away, somewhat suddenly and unexpectedly. We just found out that his liver was failing. I have been back and forth between being OK and not today. Friends have kept us company today, and we were moving my beads and sewing stuff to my new dedicated nook (Yeah!). I was measuring for where to put tables & shelves when I thought of calling my Dad to get his advice on how to set it up. And, suddenly, I was not OK again.
So, my pick is about as scattered as my brain today, but I figured it was OK to be honest. Beads and tools, purse fabric, ribbon. And in the midst of everything, thoughts of my Dad and what he means to me.

    I am so sorry to hear of the sudden passing of your father. I understand your feelings — my mother passed a year ago on Oct. 30 and my feelings are still all over the map. Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. I’m sending mega-hugs your way. Also, we’re here if you ever need to talk.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. And so understand your feelings. My dad was an “artist” of sorts. (upholsterer and interior decorator) and I often want to ask his advice on a design or decorating. I can’t believe he’ll be gone 4 years next week.

    My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

    So sorry to hear of your loss! I know it feels weird when you are trying to go on with the every day things in your life, and then you think of your Dad and are shocked to discover that you *are* being normal when it is an abnormal day! As Dawn said, don’t be hard on yourself about it, and know that your beady-buddies are sending good thoughts your way.

    Oh dear heart, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. There is much good advice in all that was said above. Lean on any of us if you need. Take comfort in the fact that he is not gone forever, only crossed over to the other side. You WILL see him again!

    My deepest sympathies on the loss of your dad. It’s always difficult to lose someone you love, but when that loss is so unexpected, it’s even harder to try to adjust. Just know that he will always be with you, and your love will help you heal. You will be in my thoughts and prayers as you work through your grief, and be assured that your “beading family” will be here for you.
    Hugs across the miles.
