I am finally heading home tonight after a whirlwind few days. We can hopefully start establishing some sort of "normalcy" again. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. We are doing okay ~ taking it one step at a time, day by day. Thank you also for your comforting words and support. You never know what a day will bring so please, try to savor every moment. The following is a poem I would like to share that I wrote for our dad after his unexpected passing.
God Wouldn't Wait
We wanted to keep you longer
But God just wouldn't wait.
Is it supposed to make us stronger?
Will we ever have answers of your fate?
We knew the time would come some day
And no one ever knows when.
We can't waste time wondering
Or thinking of what might have been.
Dad, you were a special man
Unique- as some would say.
We loved your sense of humor
And your funny, quirky ways.
We know that you are healthy now,
Better than before.
God chose to end your suffering
You will be strong forever more.
For now please walk beside us,
Guide us on our way
Until God decides He just can't wait
And we meet again one day.
Rest in Peace, Dad
We Love You
Mom, Rachelle, Andrea & Eric
