So it goes like this! I'm going to try to keep it nice and simple. This is my Father's 3rd year Heaven Anniversary. I politely went out my way, yes out my way (because l am in a lot of pain), to find some pretty flowers and balloons. Well l tried to budget it right and went to Food City and purchased some cheap pretty white balloons, with mint green strings. Ohhhh!!! They were So pretty!!! With the helium in them.
My awesome husband met me at the grave site, wrap the balloons on an artificial rose, stuck it deep in the ground. While we were putting the flowers in the ground, Snap!!!!!!! Yes!!!!! Only a person, or spirit can make a clothes pin snap and undo like that. that BIG ! HUGE CLOTHES PIN! YES HE DID IT! My poor husband tried to catch them but he couldn't .
Daddy! It was funny but not that funny!. Do you have any idea what l been through today!
But it was good knowing you're still with me and will never will leave my side.

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Bithday........ dear daddy! Happy Birthday to you......
I love you daddy from Earth. You're so far away, but yet so close to my heart. 
As you can see, l stil have my moments of bursting tears. I still hear your voice without hearing recordings. You are stil very much alive but it hurts so much not to see your face. I wish l can complain about getting out of bed to come see about you. I wish we had more time together daddy. Can you see me crying, you're probably saying stop, you just don't understand but you will but until that day comes, lm going to always cry.
I love you daddy. Happy Heavenly Birthday.

Happy 66th Birthday daddy!
Seem unfair that you're not with us but l know you're saying, "Stop saying that, because if you only knew, l wouldn't change it for the world, to come back". "If you only knew how beautiful it was, how peaceful it is, you would not come back either". "I have no more sickness, no more diseases, no more pills and no more worries". "If you knew that one day, we will be together again, just live life and continue to take God with you and you will see" 
Well daddy! You don't have to tell me because you just spoke those words through me. I am okay, although l may still cry, l know you're with our loving Father. I know you are my Guardian angel now and you will see that l transition with no complications. You will see that when l travel through the shadow of death, l will fear no evil, because you will be right there by my side.
I love you daddy forever and ever!

I can't stop crying daddy
Posted by paula lay on July 13, 2016
Daddy my heart is still sunken.
I'm crying almost every day, sometimes So bad it hurts to cry. The feeling of guilt is still there, it has not gone away.
Why did you ask me? I should have said wait a while.
The feeling l have inside is so real. I miss you so much, why did he take you so soon. I wish l knew the answers, it still runs in my head. Did they take you away or was it God? I won't rest until justice is served. l know one day it will happen, God sees all.
Sometimes l feel l Iike l'm losing my mind. I do things that not pleasant because l often get upset. I feel like l have to carry your toughness inside of me at all times. It is the only way to get by these days. So until, l see you again, l will carry on this pretentious attitude.
I love you so much daddy, your baby girl.

I didn't really know my Uncle Ralph firsthand. My father Larry Church, his brother told me many stories about him and my Uncle growing up together. I have met him. It was when my Great Grandma passed. I wish I would have gotten the opportunity to grow up knowing this side of my family more. Hopefully someday soon I'll be able to travel there and re-meet and get to know my Tennessee roots! I love y'all from here in Myrtle Beach,SC! Take care and God bless all of my family! Love, I know what it's like to lose parents.. It's hard but we have to find it in us to keep on going and living because you know that's the way they would want us to do. Love you!! ❤️
