    Default Lost my Father

    My father passed away from a heart attack Thursday afternoon. He was 69. I haven't been prouder of my dad than when he quit smoking 2 years ago, after smoking 3 packs per day for decades.

    I got to spend the Memorial day weekend with him at the beach and we had a great time with all our immediate family and lots of friends too. Oddly enough, I found a private moment and asked him what he would like us to do with his remains when he passes.

    For the last eight years, Dad has been taking care of Mom, after she had a stroke during brain surgery. She can get along but has memory and confidence problems, so the next several months will be figuring out what where when and how.

    If I could ask, please pray for my mom, Linda.

    Skooteri, Thank you for your prayer request. I lost my father 2 months ago. He was a Commercial Fisherman by trade and loved freshwater fishing as a hobby. I would be honored to pray for your mother and will put her on our prayer request at work. God will give you the strength you will need while you grieve and work through your challenges. Keep looking up and all you have to do is ask Him.

    So sorry to hear of your loss. It will be tough, but time will ease the loss. I lost my dad at 67, ten years ago. I still think of him often and smile when I think of all the things he taught me. Prayer sent.
