In Silence
I love you Dad.
At 12:08am this morning my dad passed away while I read out loud from the bible. It was peaceful and he didn’t suffer. My brother got in a few hours prior, and we all let him know that it was okay – Tony was here now and he could rest. My brother and I printed a bunch of family photos, and stuck them all around the walls so he could see.

He smiled before he passed on. Although it hurts with every ounce of my being – I know he’s happy now and no longer suffering.

I know I may not know, or your father. And you don't know me. But tonight I will go to bed and add one more person to pray for.
You're right, he's in a better place, so like they^ had said, celebrate his life ^_^ Because that's where you must've smiled the most.

May you and your family be blessed.

Thank you all, truly.

It's rough right now, but I know that he wouldn't want me to sit around and waste away. So my mamma and I have been taking it just one day at a time. Everything seems dark and damp right now, but I know that eventualy wheel break through.

I love my dad with all my heart, and I know that if he was here today - he'd say:

"Aye, aye! Teresa, stop being such a candy a**."

Which is basically his way of telling me to toughen up. The last, truly coherent thing he said to me was 'Stop crying. I love you and everything is going to be okay'.

I have really taken that to heart. It hurts, and it's going to hurt - but I think moving on and not staying frozen in those last few days - is honoring his wishes.

Sorry if this made no sense, it's really late.
