we said goodbye

 
It was a quick and fierce battle. 
 
It still doesn't feel totally real.
 
He was so very loved.

what a whirlwind for you. when my mother and father each lost a parent within six months of each other when i was in middle school, i was struck with the difference...one went quickly and suddenly with no warning...just gone. the other battled for a few months and everyone was able to say goodbye and share together in the grieving...a lot of healing happened before she passed and it was such a beautiful time...i don't think either one was GOOD in the sense of death being GOOD, but there is something GOOD in the way your family came together around your father...it is a beautiful thing that other Christians were able to watch him go so WELL. thanks for sharing about your loss...it hopefully divides your sorrow a little to remember how much he was loved. i'm so very sorry for your loss and rejoice with you that he is in his eternal home!!
