***warning sad serious post***
My father past away this past November. Our relationship is what people would say, non-existent…BUT between dad & I, it was a deep and personal love that no one could understand. Why or how? My parents have been divorced since I was 3. The first couple of years after their separation, he was stil healthy and strong enough to come visit and play. (He was 73 when he past and I’m 24. Quite old already when I arrived)
Anyhow, as time past and age took hold of his life, so did it take hold of our relationship. Basically, there was a large amount of time that he was absent. I never had or will ever have any anger or grudges against him. Oddly enough, it’s hard for people to understand this.
I was able to spend the last 7 days of his life with him, by his side, taking care of him, holding his hands, telling him I love him, and just keeping him as comfortable as he could be in the hospital.I was sadden to realize that he would not be able to walk me down the aisle and let alone, be there.
So I would like to reach out to you bees and ask for your thoughts and ideas on what we could do at our wedding in memory of my father during the walk down the aisle, the father and daughter dance. We know he is and will always be with us, but we still want him to be part of our day in a much more special way.
Thanks in advance for all of your suggestions!!
