Give Thanks

My Dad died a few days ago. He was 94 and had been ill for a long time, so it was not entirely unexpected.

It took awhile, but the grief has started to hit. As today is Thanksgiving, I want to talk about how much he meant to me, and how much I am grateful to him for being my Dad.

I really appreciate hearing this, Zhana. I feel I've been introduced to your father. I can imagine you'll miss him hugely over the years ahead... But how fortunate you are to have had such a loving relationship with him and so many positive memories.

Love Santavajri

Hi Zhana

Condolences to you for the loss of your father. My father passed away recently too, he was 90 years young. A remarkable and special human being. All I can say in comfort to you is, when you have thoughts of him and when you look at his photos; smile. You like me have been blessed to have had them in our lives for so many years. Not many children have that blessing.
