I so wish my dad could have met my child before he died. coffeejitters (Judy Haley)´s most recent post: Here or There, as long as the deed gets done Shangrila 10 years ago You just broke my heart. My husband and I have often talked about the loved ones we’ve lost, and how we wish they’d lived to see or spent time with our children. It’s a beautiful photo-thanks for sharing it! Shangrila´s most recent post: Spin Cycle-Rhyme Time Marianne 10 years ago Seeing that picture of your dad with your boys brought tears to my eyes. It reminded me of the wonderful man who became my second dad. He let me see what having a good dad could be like. When he was in a hospice dying of lung cancer and emphysema, he called me at work and told me that he never considered me his daughters’ best friend but one of his own. That meant a lot to me, after I hung up the phone I had to leave my desk because I was crying hard. He is gone now back home to be with the woman he loved for 48 years. I loved them both and know I will see them again one day.
