I've been unable to blog as the business is blessed to remain incredibly busy. Any free time away from Vintageweave has been spent with my ailing father, who has suffered from liver and kidney disease the past 20 months.
On Tuesday, September 22, the beautiful man I have had the privilege of knowing as FATHER, DAD, DADDY, POP, PA, was welcomed into the loving arms of God. He left this earth into the gates of heaven at 7:pm PST. My family's grief is overwhelming at times, and other times we laugh or smile and remember the wonderful, wonderful man who touched the lives of so many.
My father was one of the most generous souls ever to walk this earth. I was blessed to enjoy an extremely close relationship with him...he was my hero, my rock. While my heart aches, I take comfort in knowing God is smiling, the angels are dancing and we still feel his love.
Shared by a friend, which I find so beautiful:
"Losing a father is like losing that one wing when needing to fly... Life seems unbearable without you, but knowing you want me to go on with life gives me the strength to do so.... I miss you so much... I know whatever I do in life you will be there because you are not only my father but you are now my angel, too....."
