Saying Goodbye.....

It's a hard to say goodbye to a parent.....my Dad passed away this weekend and today is his funeral back in Michigan. That's where he lived along with the rest of my family.
I was not there to say goodbye as I was not there to say goodbye to my Mom when she passed 13 years ago.
I feel so disconnected these past couple of days. I have so many things swimming in my head....I have to come to terms with this and figure out a way to let go and say goodbye in my own way!
I am hurting inside and I need my heavenly Fathers' help, I can't do this on my own!

Noel, I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I know the pain, and I also know you have to deal with it in your own way. For me, I created madly, and cried a lot. After 8 years I still feel such loss as if it were yesterday but I do have great memories to rely on.Take it day by day, and if you ever need a should, I have two!
Gentle hugs,Pat
