Deer in the headlights…..

deer in headlights

It’s been a rough week, Pauls father passed away hours before my father, we both still have the “deer in the headlights” “what the heck just happened” feeling.

We are, along with our families deeply saddened at the loss of the two wonderful men we both called “Dad”.

We had a service for my dad on Sunday…

My daughter chose the following passage to be read on Sunday,  it couldn’t have been written more perfectly…

God saw he was getting tired and a cure was not to be,
So He put His arms around him and whispered “come with me”
With tearful eyes we watched him suffer,
And saw him fade away,
Although we loved him dearly,
We could not make him stay,
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands out to rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best!


≈Laugh loudly, Love generously, Care deeply, Speak kindly≈

    So sorry for your loss, and Paul’s loss. How shocking it must be to lose both at the same time.
    May you both find all the support you need.
    The poem is perfect.
