Dear Hive, I sat down to write this for the past 2 day but I just couldn’t do it. So here goes nothing.
My dad is dead. My dear sweet father who was my hero and my everything is dead. My mom and I found him late Monday night. We had been out at the florist’s for a final appointment before the wedding. We came home and found him blue and cold. He looked so peaceful. Not wanting to believe it and being the RN that I am I tried CPR. But I knew from the second I saw him that he was gone. The only joy I have right now is knowing that he is in heaven with my Heavenly Father. We are a very religious family and I know my dad is dancing those streets of gold with my Savior. That is the only joy I can possibly see right now.
My wedding is in less than a month. My dad was supposed to walk me down the aisle, officiate the ceremony, give me away, and dance with me. Now, he won’t be there for any of that. Mom says we have to go on and have the wedding. It was what dad wanted. But I feel so incredibly selfish for even thinking about the wedding right now. I told my fiance that I know there is such joy in our wedding but right now I can’t see any of it. I am too overwhelmed by sorrow. I feel like it will never go away. I can’t believe this is my life now. I feel like I’ve woken up to a nightmare.
But we will be okay. We will carry on. Through God’s strength alone we will survive. Please pray for me. Pray for my family. We are all having an incredibly hard time at the sudden passing of my beloved daddy.

I know he would want you to. you can have a little piece of his like jewelry or something in your bouquet so he is with you the whole day. I hope you know you are not alone and i will be praying for your family. Cheer up hun, things do get better.

Oh, sweetie, no one should have to go through this and I am terribly sorry you are. I will put you and your family into my prayers. Just remember that when you turn and see only one set of footprints behind you that it is he that is carrying you.

@TP to Bee: I’m so sorry for your loss. It’s hard. I lost my dad when I was 19 and it’s still hurts almost 10 years later. I’m sure he would have wanted you to go along with the wedding.

I have goose pimples as your post touched me in indescribable ways. I lost my Beloved Mom last Christmas morning.
What you wrote? that at least you can take comfort the he is with your Savior? It’s true honey.
And my Mom’s last wish was to see me married. So although I felt we should wait a year, we got engaged in January and married in September. My Daddy’s been my anchor now and he guided me telling me that it’s what my Mom wanted.
I still talk to her everyday and think about her more than once a day. She, like your Dad, will never be forgotten.
God Bless you and your family and your Daddy
PM me if you need me
