This was read yesterday 5/18/13 for my dad’s memorial service.
Dad has always been my rock
Now he’s gone
and that hurts.
38 years together
66 years on the Earth
Married 42 years to my mom
4 1/2 years with brain cancer.
I wanted two more decades
We all wanted two more decades.
I am glad he is no longer suffering.
But would love to have years at Ferry Beach
and the ocean of Maine together.
Walking, laughing, being together and listening to jazz.
Dad has always been the rock in my life,
it hurts, it will always hurt.
I miss you dad.
Sadness comes in waves.
