Missed and Loved

Shared by Emileigh Blackburn on May 27, 2016

We didn't even see it coming, never got to say goodbye, never got to pray to the Lord that all would be okay and that you would live to an old man. You left to soon, you were so kind, caring and loving and one of the nicest men in the world. You were the best father, no matter how hard I try not to think about your death I just can't stop thinking about it. I think about you every second my heart beats and more, I love and miss you so much. It's so hard seeing other little girls with their Dads, having fun, laughing, hugging, having a good time, but what hurts the most is not being able to look at you and hug you and say I love you Daddy and seeing my little sisters growing up without a father and knowing that the people who killed you are free. I love and miss you so much.

We never got to say our  goodbyes. You left us to soon. We where devstated by your death. We never exspected that life would be so short for you. Knowing you where nolonger on Earth, but that your spirit was near our hearts. Even though we miss you teribly we want your spirit to be free and not trappped in our grief. So lay grace and piece over you and let your spirit go to Heaven and enjoy the  beautity of Heaven itself.

We didn't get to say goodbye

We're devastated that you're gone

We would have done anything to keep you here with us

Right here is where you belong

We didn't know that life would take

Such an unexpected path

That you'd be separated from us so soon

Heartbreaking reality we struggle to grasp

And bitter though our losing you has been

And so profound is the pain that we bear

We're sadder still at no chance for goodbye

No final expression of our deep love and care

Yet believing that you're not too far away

That your Spirit still lingers quite near

We'll say our goodbyes in our words and our thoughts

Trusting that each one you'll hear

First, know that you were loved in the truest of ways

So deep that only our hearts can give expression

You'll be forever surrounded by our love

For we're sending it straight up to Heaven

Please know that you'll be cherished by each one of us

For your example and kindness we'll treasure

We understand now how your life was a gift

That was meant to bless us forever

And though we'll miss you terribly

We want your Spirit to be free

Free to enjoy all the wonders of Heaven

Not bound to us in our grief

So watch over us with happiness from Heaven ..."
