I remembered you said goodbye

My father passed on at midnight, Thursday, July 12th 2007. Only a few moments after I said goodnight.

The emergency ext alarm was blaring, a short they said. My uncle reminded me that it was the same shrill whistle that was made when some one was coming aboard {Navy Ship} And that they were announcing his arrival.

We are Waking.

I will be absent from the blog for 3 days.

Thank you all for your kind words. If you drink, tip one for my father, TM1 Phelan.

In dreams I walk with you. In dreams I talk to you.
In dreams you're mine. All of the time, we're together
In dreams, in dreams.

So sorry for your loss. I deleted my comment in your last post because I was confused...didn't realize it was your father who was passing.

I've always found comfort in this poem:

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there.
I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft starts that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there.
I did not die.

~Mary Elizabeth Frye, 1932

I am so very sad to hear of your father's passing.

I came to find you so I could donate for the blog-a-thon again.

Though I've been away, I never forgot you. I send love.

I have been away from your blog too long...I just wanted express my condolances as well. Very poignant post-grief "practice" most certainly does not help.
