    Here is a poem I found for you:

The Gift

© Lea Gomez

I will never say goodbye to you my Father
cause I know this is not the end for us to see each other.
You will only be going to a place where there’s no pain nor suffering.
I am happy for you, for you will be with God.
For now we need to go in separate ways.
I remember how your arms hold me and give me strength.
You were always there to listen, love, and defend me in everything.
You were my very best friend.
In my triumphs you were always proud.
I’m very grateful and proud to call you my dad.
Here deep inside my heart you’ll always be.
I would give up everything I have just to hug you one more time.
I remember the last time I hold you’re hand and how you looked at me in the eyes.
If only I could turn back the time I would have never let you go.
I felt the world stops and my heart stop beating when they told me you’re gone…….
How I wish I was only dreaming.
Just like the rain; tears fell down from my eyes, I couldn’t speak for a while.
Thank you Dad….
For always understanding, listening , caring, and loving me for the rest of your life.
The greatest gift God gave me was YOU…….. my Dad…
It’s difficult to let you go but I must…
I must return the gift God gave me…
Till then;
See you in Heaven………

OM Gosh. This is so wonderful and sweet.

I love all of you so much.

I can't even tell you.

Thank you.

This is horrible for me to have lost my Daddy but having you here to love me helps me so much.

Star-ship please transport me to a happier place. LIKE TO A HOME OF ANY OF MY BP FAMILY!

Kalena I so love this beautiful creation you have made for my Daddy and the Angels :) and for me.

I love you.

I love you all and if you were here I can't even tell you the hugs you would get from me. (And tears). Do you mind that I would be buried in your shoulder? I bet you would NOT! xoxo

Thank you ALL and I want you to know how grateful I am to have you in my life. Each one of you.

Tears here.

xo-Laura

Lala, you are always welcome here! :) You are ALWAYS there for us and now we are here for YOU!

xo,
Kalena

(P.S. Not that it matters really, but this post says it is from NancyJ/MumJ with her Avatar? Strange!)

I think Tinkerbell did that! :)))) I have seen BP do this before...so let's see if this will be ME or will it be YOU on the avatar here? :)

I love this so much Sister. Thank you again. And guess what? I saw two more butterflies!!! One last night and another today! 20 feet up at my bay windows in the Dining room and Living room.

An Orange one and then a yellow and black one! :)

I think the Lord might be reminding me that I am not alone. Or that everything will be okay? Or that Dad is still around for a little bit and in the care of the Angels :) I guess we might understand these things perfectly one day when it happens to us? :)

I am so grateful for my BP family!

BIG HUGS BACK to ALL OF YOU!!!

Love, Sister Laura and BP Daughter to Mumj. :))))))

Lala, it could be that (about the butterflies) or it could be that you are like the "Beauty" in the "Beauty & the Beast" where the birds, butterflies, etc. just flock to you! :) (Btw, look closer...there are LOTS of butterflies!)

:) Thank you :) And I love the beautiful poem you left here too. Lorna was to my Daddy's dedication and she left a photo bucket and it has 3 butterflies, too...so if I only ever get to see 3 in the next while I will know it was a sign. If I see lots more, I will know you are so right. That it's time to take in nature and all of our friends out there. Lady bugs like to land on me. :) I always thought that was special.

Have you ever gone to the butterfly hut at your local zoo? Now that is fun! Wear a floral print and you will be in for a treat!

Thank you and thanks again all of you.
Love Laura :)

Hi Big Sis Pat, Jo Ann and Sis Christine!

Isn't this a beautiful card that Kalena made?

Jo Ann, you are so right. He will be in my heart until my last breath. My brother asked me to speak at the Memorial (it has been postponed for now) and I had to decline for the same reason he did. We would cry. Maybe by then I can stand a tell one story of him? :)

Thank you again for making this card, Karen. :) It's beautiful!

Love, Lala :D
