Sorry for your loss. March is a tough month for my sister. We lost our father in March. She lost her husband in March. Some good friends passed in March. We welcome April.

Rev. Paul said...

WSF, I thank you - and hope the remainder of March goes quickly, and well.

April sounds like a good idea, right now.

Rev Paul, it's hard on those special days when our loved ones are no longer with us.

Condolences my friend...

Rev. Paul said...

Thanks, Sarge. My dad & I had a rocky relationship, but had come to terms in the last two years of his life. I'm grateful for that; our last visit was the best ever, and had weekly video-chats for the last six months of his life. That helped immensely.

I know...my Dad has been gone for l7 years and I still miss him. The pain lessens over time, but the ache will always remain. Hugs....

Rev. Paul said...

Thank you, ma'am. I appreciate that.

Cathy said...

Rev. Paul. We never stop missing them.
Our dad has been gone 23 years and my husband and I still mourn him. In fact . . . my husband just said that he dreamt about him again last night.

Rev. Paul said...

I understand, Cathy. There's a hole in our hearts created by their passing, and nothing will ever completely heal it.

Max said...

You are right, we never completely heal. I think most of us grow a lot, and change a lot and become better people.
The memories, photo's, stories, those live on and give us some comfort.

Rev. Paul said...

I believe you're right too, Max. Thank you.
