My thoughts are with you Jerry...

I've been through a very similar experience with one of my close relatives who died suddenly and know the pain, shock and sadness that you must be going through.

My deepest condolonces to you and your family.

Buried my dad yesterday.

It has been a rough few days which felt like a week.

Things went ok except for his ex-wife had to make her appearance at the funeral home the night of the wake. It had to get down to my mom had to call my step brother and ask for her not to be there for the funeral.

I had know my step father for 27 years and his real children would never take the time to come see there dad until it was already too late.

He was a great dad to me and my sister and mom for 27 years. My real father died when I was 6.

Now after seeing two dads gone out of my life has just been hard on my mom.

Things will never be the same again.

I can say only one thing if your parents are still living take time out if it is only too pick up the phone and let them know from time to time that you love them.

Just also wanted to say thanks to all of you my family here on aidsmeds for all the support and prayers it really means a lot to know that you really care. Just would have never thought something like this would have happened so quick.

Thanks for everything. :-*

Jerry

A special thank you goes out to my dear friend Lisa she has been my rock and shoulder to cry on my best friend thanks for being there for me any listen to my crys. Your the best. Love you mean it. :-*

Jerry, there is no way to explain how hard it is. The main thing is for you to be strong and stay strong. I'm sure your mom is going to depend on you more than ever now. You won't ever get over it, but it will get easier. You know where to get a hold of me if you need to.

Thanks Rodney.

My dad at the remaining days was special it was like he knew he would not be around much longer but had too much pride to not tell any of us what pains he was going through.

He put that water line into my home and put a new roof on my home and was really a great dad and friend till the end. :'( :'( :'(

He had planned to do a lot more but did not get to finish a lot of his projects around the home like he had planned to do.

He will be missed. :'(

I'll personally do so. Thanks for this reminder !
Your message is a reminder that we are not immortal.
It remind me that it's only after that we figure out it.

Thanks again Jerry. I'll now definitely see my family next January.
Again, sorry my friend.

you know you can depend on us. Wished I live closer and could be of help.
But you and your mom are in my heart, and of course your dad....

Dear Jerry,

My deepest condolences on the passing of your father.  Words of comfort can be difficult at times like these, so let me simply offer the following from Andre Patri, he writes:

“In one sense there is no death.  The life of a soul on earth lasts beyond their departure.  You will always feel that life touching yours, that voice speaking to you, that spirit looking out of other eyes, talking to you in the familiar things they touched, worked with, loved as familiar friends. They live on in your life and in the lives of all others who knew them.”

Dream as if you will live forever and live as if you will die tomorrow.

I feel your pain as many of us do. I lost my parents too. My biological mother about 7 years ago and my adopted father more recently, going on 4 years ago. Reading your post made me glance at their pictures. I keep them in my bedroom and I still think of them to this very day. Stay strong..
