Saying Goodbye

This photo says everything about my Dad.  The last few years of his life were not easy, but he did everything with strength and grace as the caregiver for my Mom who is in late stage Alzheimer’s.  When my daughter told him about her upcoming marriage, he said all he wanted was to dance with her at the wedding. And he did.

He fought to be there and be an example for his family.  He lived his marriage vows.  We will miss him greatly.



  1. What a beautiful photo and memory. I'm sorry for your loss.

  2. So very sorry for your loss sweet friend. What a precious memory of your dad for you all to share.

  3. I am sorry for the loss of your father.
    A father is a daughters first hero.
    My father was my hero until the day he passed almost 2 yrs ago.
    Your father helped make you the woman that you are and he will always be a part of you. Blessings to you and your family at this time.

  4. I am so sorry for your loss, Vicki! Take comfort in the wonderful memories of him! And you will cherish this lovely photo always!

  5. That photo is priceless! I know exactly what you're feeling, my dad died on September 11, just 10 days ago. I'm so sorry for your loss and will pray for you as you navigate this difficult time.

  6. Such a precious picture, wonderful memories of your Dad! SO sorry for your loss:( A life well lived! Sending HUGS and PRAYERS your way!

  7. I am so sorry for your loss. He sounds like an amazing man in every way. Thinking of you and your family.

  8. I am so very sorry, Vicki. It's so difficult, the sorrow and grief we have, in losing a parent we love so very much. He sounds like a wonderful man.
