2014 Snapshots

Thursday, May 13

Only memories now. Good Bye Dad, Bamahuta.

DSCF4853 I  remember so clearly the stories my grandmother used to tell me and my sisters about my father,  and his love for the ocean.  How he would run away from school and follow his Dad to the sea begging him to go fishing with him instead of sitting in a classroom.

He loved to go fishing and he loved taking us with him.

tonight my heart’s heavy because Dad lost his battle to cancer this afternoon.   I’m sad, really sad  but I know in my heart that he’s  passed onto a place where there’s no more pain and no more suffering.  only joy,  peace and happiness…… and maybe fishing to his hearts content!

I love you Dad.

You will always live in my heart,  so although you’re gone in the flesh your memories will live on. 

R.I.P.

I’m flying home this weekend.  I don’t know how long I’ll be away.

Oh Kari, I am deeply sorry! There are no words to ease the pain. It will be 2 years in Sept that I lost my dad and my heart still aches. Sending you many hugs my friend. xo

So, so, so sorry to hear of your loss. I cannot imagine your pain; my father is the one person whose loss can always make me cry, even if it hasn't come yet. Dads are so important to daughters. I am certainly feeling for you and hoping that your wonderful lifetime full of fond memories with him pull you through this tough time with tears, laughter, and reasons to make more memories with your own offspring :)

I'm sorry! I know how it feels to lose someone you love. Not my father, but people very close to me. I hope you feel better!

God Bless!

Love, Skylar
