Dear BOO~   You are one of my favorite monkey friends because of your wicked sense of humor and big heart, I'm so
              sorry to hear that your father has passed away. I don't know which is harder, when they leave us suddenly or
              when each day is feared as their last. Either way the loss is devastating, please know that my thoughts are
              with you. I'll miss you here and hope that you get thru these hard days ahead with your family by your side.

                 lots of hugs,   Janet

DEENIE~  I'm sorry that I was gone from the forum for a few days and didn't hear the news of your loss also. I haven't lost my father yet, thankfully, but my sweet mother left us at Christmas time, so I know it's such a strange passage for us as children. It's so difficult to want or feel the need to have a parents attention and have to realize that we can only reach out spiritually.  I pray that each day becomes easier and each fond memory clearer.

He sounded like a wonderful man and maybe he gave you your great sense of pairing just the right music for any emotion or situation like you do with those terrific youtubes!  If he did, it's our gift here at SM.

hugs from another monkey sister,  Janet

Boo lost her father this morning. Please pray for strength for her and her family during this heartbreaking time.She asked me to let the board know as she will not be around for a bit. 
Boo, JSM has no words but to say I feel so sorry for you and your family. I can't imagine your pain right now. If you need me, you know how to reach me. Hugs and Love to you.

Luv you Boo,

BOO, I see you up there and all of this has me remembering those awful heartaches that you are probably feeling right now. I even would drop in SM sometimes just to be "normal" for a minute, knowing that the rest of the day would be full of tears and even laughter with tears, all those memories of small funny stuff  and then more tears.  Take care.

Sending you another hug.    j

Thank you all Monkeys for your prayers. It was devastating. I was going to go see him today with my twin sister Julie. I was waiting for Julie to call to say she was on her way, then I would meet her. She called and said Dad's dead. For the past few months I just kept thinking Julie's going to call and say Dad's dead. He hasn't been doing well, he was on oxygen tank, a diabetic and had heart problems. He wrote us an email the other day saying he was having trouble breathing and the stairs were so hard on him. I called and had a nice conversation with him. Now this.  How do people function? When driving home I kept thinking how are these people out here going on with life? My Dad is dead, I'm never going to see him again, never feel his arms around me, never hear his voice, never get another email. OMG I can't stop crying.   

When I got there the LE met me, said they didn't advise going in b/c he was still slumped over in his chair. But if I wanted they would go in with me. I wanted to see him. I was there for my Aunt and I needed to be with him. He couldnt' be alone a second longer. They walked me in and I asked them to move the sheet so I could see him, just a little bit. I will never forget that. Then Julie and her daughter showed up. Strange how we each act so differently. When I started to cry, she became strong, when she cried I was strong. She could answer the ME's questions regarding his heart history and medication, but she couldn't call the funeral home. I called the funeral home and they guy answered asked my father's name. He knew him! He goes to Kiwanis with him! He would be over in 20 minutes which according to LE is record time for a funeral home around here. When they brought him out of the house there was a flag over him. OMG I snapped a few pics from my phone, it was so beautiful, so respectful. I just let the tears flow. I have his watch on now.

I called my sister is Mississippi then my daughter then SunnyinTx. Why in my hour of need, I felt so strongly about calling a monkey? I needed my monkey family with me, some way some how, I needed you all. That's why I got so angry with Steel, he didn't understand what you all mean to me, to others too. When you don't have a large family or they are all far away you cling to those who have shown you love and kindness. That's my Monkey family. For anyone to come in here and slam my family is not tolerated by me. Thank you so much, I can truly say I feel your love and prayers coming from miles away. I needed you and you were there. I'll touch base here and there over the next week, but mostly lurk for a while. Both my boys drove up from Milan to be with me and they took me out to dinner. I just sat there looking at the menu, ready to puke. My daughter told me what to order and made me eat. I didn't taste a thing, but I know I needed it, I hadn't eaten all day. God sent that girl to me, she is my right arm and my whole heart. Tonight she made me up a mojo bag, she put in a crystal, an amethyst, mustard seeds for faith, an herbal bag she made me years ago when I was going through a tough time and other things. She placed in my purse so it would be with me all day tomorrow and help me through this. Then she put in the Dr. Horrible DVD so I would smile a little and she sang along with the songs and stayed with me. I am so blessed to have such family and friends. I love you all.

Boo, oh my God, I read your post and was so touched.  What is so weird, is that I made my Hub and one of my twins watch the Dr. Horrible DVD tonight.  We're big Joss Whedon fans but have never seen this show.  I loved your connection with your sister. And your monkey family is also with you.  Here's a thought for you,  you have his watch, and ultimately, you have his time.  I will be praying and thinking of you.

Deenie I am so sorry about your father.  When my father passed I cried for almost a week straight, night and day.  My mom was so worried about me as I could not stop crying.  Then one night I had a dream.  I saw my father very peaceful in a beautiful orchard with fields rolling forever behind him.  He told me that he was ok, he was not in pain anymore and that he loved me.  He told me he was at peace and this would be the last time he was coming to see me until we reunited.  He told me to love his grandchildren and that he would be there for them especially his grand daughter who he had waited forever for.  I had the most peaceful feeling come over me it was amazing.  I awoke and was still wrapped in that peace.  I knew then that he was fine and that we would see each other again.  My father passed 3 weeks after my daughter was born.  He wanted a granddaughter so bad that when I was pregnant with my second son he was so sure that it was going to be a girl he had already started buying girlie girl dresses and beautiful dolls. There is 10 years between my second son and my daughter.  My father had a stroke shortly after I became pregnant with my daughter.  When she was about a week old I took her to see my dad, placed her in his arms in his wheel chair and he wept.  He had had several strokes by then and we were not sure how much he could even understand.  When I saw him holding my daughter and crying I knew though his body had failed him his mind was trapped.  That was the first time I had ever seen my father cry.  My father loved gardening and the outdoors.  As my daughter was growing up she would be fascinated by bugs and flowers and come in and tell us about them.  When either my mom or myself would ask her where she learned that she would always say Papa.  It sent chills into my mom and I but we soon realized that he was holding her hand and sharing his love of gardening with her.  She told us things that there was no way she would have known or got from watching TV.  It has been 12 years since my father has passed and I am sitting here weeping sharing this with you.  What I am trying to say is that I know that your Dad will always be around you, will be proud of you, will be there to hold you and guide you even though you can not see him.  My heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to you.



I know this pic is for Deenie, but it blessed my heart tonight too. Thank you.

Boo..
i haven't been a monkey very long, and you really don't know me...but the loss will stay, the pain will not.  i'm sorry your daddy died, nothing will bring him back.  but you have the memories, thoughts, and the wisdom he instilled in you.  take that wisdom and love into every thing you do and your daddy will always have a voice.  you mentioned the ebb and flow of strength in your family...thats ya'll lookin' out for each other.  i can't imagine a family with that much love that didn't come from a loving center.  you loved your daddy and he loved you, very much.  the fact that you can share this with us lets me know that he raised as a very strong and loving daughter.  lean on your daughter now...she wants to be strong for you and you need a strong heart to hold you up and a soft shoulder to rest your head on.  oh, honey, i know its hard, but you will get through this...and when the pain subsides and you can joyfully remember your daddy, he will be there an angelic monkey to smile with you.

Boo, I am sitting here crying and sharing your pain. I lost my daddy too, and I was a daddy's girl, and a tomboy. I had two older sisters and I was the boy he never had. He always wanted me to be feminine and wear girly clothes and shoes, and have my hair just so. But he would take me to college football games, show me how to cut wood with my own jigsaw in his shop and go to Sears with him to buy new tools. I was still a daddy's girl when he died, and I was a grown woman with kids of my own.

I want you to know how much it meant to me last night to take up for me when I was really down. I know what you mean about needing your monkeys. We are far from each other, but connected at the heart.

You will never forget your daddy, and you will never forget the pain of his leaving so abruptly. But it will ease in time and you will get used to the feeling. You never get over it, you just get used to it. You will be happy again, it will be different, but one day you will realize that you feel happiness again, and you will not feel guilty. Your daddy wouldn't want that for you.

Lean on you family, your daughter and your sons and sister. And you know you can lean on us too. We are here for you, patiently waitng and praying for all of you.

With much love,
Fanny

Thank you Fannie, I remember the trips to Sears too. He would buy warm cashews and share with us and walk around the tool department. I loved it. Thank you bringing back such a great memory. I have such a hole in my heart. My Mom died when i was 13 years old and now him. I'm an orphan and i just can't wrap my mind around it. Dad's are supposed to be made of steel, always around to pick up the pieces of your life and make it all better. It hurts so bad, I just want to sleep but it won't come. Grissom is keeping me company and my daughter checks on me every few minutes. I feel a tingle every once in a while around the his watch that I'm wearing. Probably my imagination, but I feel him here, standing in the room.
