"Dear Dad,
3 years gone just like yesterday, there is not a day that I don’t think about you.
No one knows how much I miss you; No one knows the bitter pain
I have suffered since you joined the Saint triumphant. Life has never been the same.
The memory forever lingers in my heart, loving and kind in all your ways; sweetly tender, fond and true.
Upright and just to the end of your days, the vacuum you left behind is yet to be filled, sleep on Dad till we meet to part no more."

I miss you dad.Wherever you are I just want you to know that no matter how much we’ve fought and argued, you were right, is what my heart always knew.
Dad!!!  How ironic is it that I wasted my early days in the college not listening to you. But now that you’re not here, I’m living life exactly how you told me to, your death will always remain a blurry memory. But your life will always be a vivid one, the epitome of greatness and sacrifice. I miss you dad..........Sleep on until we meet to part no more"

""For those we love within the veil,
Who once were comrades of our way,
We thank Thee, Lord; for they have won
To cloudless day." .........William C. Piggott, 1915.

Despite my training as a shrink with adequate knowledge of grief and bereavement, i am still utterly bereft vis-a-vis this painful loss. I still shed tears regularly and freely. For me the sudden exit was most painful. We had so much unfinished business....'Indeed the graveyards are full of indispensable men" .

Rest in peace dad"
