At the end of last year my Daddy passed away.  It was very sudden, which was how he would have wanted it if he'd been given the option.  Two weeks before he passed, he and I spent the afternoon laughing and talking and carrying on and that is the memory that I carry in my heart. 

As I grieve and miss his physical presence in my life, I have a peace that he is in Heaven, and his humor, knowledge, love, and just who he was lives on.  I miss him but I am also thankful to have had him as my Daddy.

I've been doing some knitting (mostly stockinette), and a lot of un-knitting and re-knitting too.  When I'm ready to share things with the blog, I'll be back, but for now, I'm just not ready.

You have my deepest sympathy. Losing a parent is hard but all the memories of him will stay with you forever. Even when you feel that you heart will never heal, remember his love for you and how long you had with him, not everyone has that.

I am so sorry for your loss. It is so difficult to lose a parent. I have lost both of mine and I think you adapt your life to it never really 'getting over it.'
Remember the memories that make you smile and your father will be forever in your
heart.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad you have good memories. I lost a good friend right before Christmas, and I have not found a new normal yet either. Prayers for peace to you and your family!
