ForeverMissed

This memorial page was created in loving memory of my dad, Daymond Larry Prater who was born in Mingo county ,west Virginia on May 19th 1956 and passed away on April 21st 2016, 59 years of age.

If I could have just one moment with my dad again

I'm not sure I could take it or withstand the pain.

You see,a moment is not long enough and I dont

think I would survive loosing my dad a second time

If he didn't stay alive.

My heart it whimpers badly at the thought that he is gone

But it's those special memories of him that gives me the

Strength to go on.

I know that there will come a day when life is done for me

That I will return to the place where my Dad will be.

Dad,

I know your life on earth was troubled,

but now you've truly been set free.

Dad,I want you to know that I'm thankful

for the special times That you and I shared,like

The times we we're laughing and kicking it on

The phone and just hanging out or the times I got

To visit you when I was a little girl...I hope I made you Proud.

I love you dad,always on my mind and forever in my heart

Until we meet again

Can't believe its been 4 yrs already, Its crazy seems like it was yesterday that I had to say my goodbyes to you, but then it also seems like its been forever since we talked. I really do miss our convo's an us laughin. So much has happened in my life in the last 4 yrs. I really wish you could've met ur granddaughter an great grandbabies. Really wish we would've had a chance to hang out an make up for lot of time missed. But I am greatful for the time we did make up. I'll be scattering ur ashes soon, doin it in a way I think u wouldve wanted an where I think you felt the most free at. I hope ur at peace now, love ya dad, talk to ya soon

Daymond you have been a good brother to me all my life, we shared a lot of happy times together. I'll never forget... your smile,... your laughter,... your jokes but most of all ...YOU.

Daymond you will always have a loving place in my heart, one that I will NEVER forget! I love you! May God wrap his arms around you, comfort you and keep you safe until we see each other again. Rest In Peace.

I'll always remember daymond for his knowledge of computers and his willingness to share it with my younger brother and I. It's hard to believe it's been nearly 16 years since I saw him but I'm reminded of good times and it is with respect for Daymond and God's will that I send my sincerest condolences.

Uncle Daymond it still seems unreal. So hard to take in. You have been there most of my life. You will be missed dearly. I know you are in good hands, no more suffering. I know you are with gramma. We all love you and we will all be together again one day. Fly high and rest in paradise.

The first time I had ever been fishing, my uncle Daymond took my brothers and sisters and myself across the street In Adams County to a creek. He taught us how to bait our hooks, cast the pole, reline our poles, the whole nine yards. In the midst of fishing some us also would go swimming, with the exception of my older brother Donny. He would get into the water, but man oh man did he hate to get his hair wet. First time I listened to my uncle Daymond and tried to dunk him under water and it was the last time I listened to him lol.  Man was I in trouble when in got home. We had a lot of fun fishing trips and road trips to see gramma Barton. It is sad to think we won't have that again . I will never forget how big of a part Daymond was in our life's.  We love and miss you Daymond.
