Goodbye Dad

It is with a heavy heart that I post the news of the death of my father. He passed away last night right after we had all just left his house. I had just gone to bed when I got the call. He passed peacefully without a sound. We all raced back to his house to say our last goodbyes. I know he was still there, lingering, telling us not to cry, but to celebrate what a good life he had. But that is hard to do. My heart is broke in a million pieces. I just want to lay my head on his chest and hear him tell me it's going to be alright. I will never be the same. He meant so much to me. I will never have coffee with him on Tuesday mornings again.....well maybe when I join him in the beautiful place he is now. I know he is smiling down on me from above. I wonder if there are slot machines there.....if there are he just hit the jackpot! Goodbye, my precious daddy.
