I'm just sitting here going over the weekend and day I just had.
I kind of automatically come on here whenever I sit in front of the computer. I kind fo needed to put into words a few things and this seemed like as good as place as any.

I lost my uncle over the weekend. Hell of a thing to loose a loved one around the holidays. The funeral is planned for Monday after Thanksgiving. I got a call from my sister last night . She left a message telling me what time the funeral was. I was planning on calling her form work today to tell her I would be there on Sunday. (Most of my immediate family live 2 hours away.) I kind of got busy at work and didn't call till around 2PM. My neice answered the phone and told me I needed to call my brother. She told me my Father had an accident. I called and my Mom answered. My Mother is a strong woman. She told me I needed to sit down. I knew what was coming and told her I didn't want to hear it. She snapped at me and told me I had to hear it. My Father passed away this morning.. The man I wanted to be like all my life is gone.

I'm not writting this to get sympathy. I don't want that. I just needed to sit here and type. I guess I just needed to let someone else know. None of you guys knew him but he was special. If you knew him you would have liked him. Everyone liked him. He was a quiet strong man. I don't know how else to descride him to someone who dosen't know him. I could go on and on telling you what made him special but I won't. Everyone already knows what makes certain people special to them and it's not always what made that person special to someone else. I guess it's enough that you know he was something very special to me. He was/is my Father.

Some of you on here know that I am a Christian. I may not always come off like I am but I am. The one comfort I do have right now after loosing two very important people in my life is that I will see them again. Both my Uncle and my Father were/are Christians.

The Holidays are coming and families usually get together during thet time . If you are fortunate enough to be able to spend time with them do yourself a favor. Cherrish them and let them know they are important to you. If you aren't able to spend time with someone who is special to you shoot me an IM. There is always room in my life for 1 more important person .

Give me about a week to respond. I will be out of town till a week from Thursday.

You guys have a fantastic Thanksgiving and thanks for letting me ramble on about my Father. He will be missed but he will always be with me.
I love you Dad.

I have a fair assessment of how it feels to lose a loved one. Take as much time as you need and I'm sure we'll all be here for you if you need or want us to be.

PackersHome.com will be here when you're ready. I assure you that.

Oh, man. I'm so very sorry for your losses. I know how it is to lose someone you love. I lost my grandfather in 2004 and I was very close to him

Anyway, take your time getting back to here.

May the Lord be with you.

This hurts my soul. I am grateful you took the time to share it. I hope that when you come back to this forum... well I know that when you come back to this forum...we will try and hopefully succeed in ameliorating some of the hurt, some of the time. I will give it my absolute best shot. My tears are for you and yours. So are my prayers.

Dave
I could tell you that I know how you feel...and that would be true.
I could tell you that my prayers go with this day...and that would be true.
I could tell you that with time the pain will lessen (but never be gone)...and that will be true.
But sometimes those words do not provide much solace.

So I would like to leave with you something that my Father left to me. He was a much wiser man than I.

Id like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
Id like to leave an after glow
of smiles when life is done.
Id like to leave an echo,
whispering softly down the ways.
Of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days.
Id like the tears of those who grieve
to dry before the sun.
Of happy memories that I leave
when life is done.


Take care my friend, may you go with God and may God go with you.

My condolences to you and your family. Anytime is a terrible time to lose a close family member, especially a parent. But the holiday season makes it even tougher. Just hang tough man and make sure to stay in contact with friends & family during such a rough time.

I am so sorry for your loss. Been there and still miss my Dad.
I know that both your Dad and Uncle are in a much better place than we are but I also know that we would much rather have them here with us.

God bless you and your family.

I wish there were some magical words that would make the pain go away..........but i know no such words exist.
Just know that you are in my prayers.
My Dad has been gone 34 years now, and i still miss him and his guidance.
The pain will ease with time, but never go away.
In a way thats a good thing........you are never truely gone as long as there is someone here that thinks of you and misses you.
