My sister posted this on facebook in memory of my dad.....I thought it was perfect.
Yellow roses grow in heaven.
Lord pick a bunch for me, place them in my daddy's arms and tell him they're from me.
Tell him that I love and miss him. When he turns to smile, place a kiss upon his cheek & hold him for awhile, tell him I love him still. Remembering him is easy, I do it every day. There's an ache in my heart that will never go away.
I lost my father just over two years ago to a sudden heart attack. At the time of the loss I couldn't help but be tormented by feelings of confusion, disbelief, anger, hurt and fear. It hasn't been that long but it has been long enough to look at my time with my Dad in a different way then with sadness and pain.....I now see him as my angel of strength and as a guardian - to my mother, my two sisters, my brother and me. My father was the sweetest man. He was always chuckling, (which apparently
i inhereted) he was so affectionate and he was so caring to us all. We were his priority and his passion and wow, did he love my mom. I used to love catching him gazing at her from across the room. It was a love to be admired. They were true soul mates and best friends. Thank you dad for being so incredible. Thank you for all your support, unconditional love, easy talks, protection and affection. Thank you for instilling patience, empathy, strength, drive and understanding into me. Thank you for teaching me about the value of respect, trust and family. Thank you for believing in me and along with mom always being my number one fan. Thank you for making me into who I am today and being my inspiration for this new journey I have begun.
I'll always be your little girl....all my love and kisses to you in heaven. Christy.
