My Dad passed away yesterday evening at 7.30pm. He was sleeping peacefully in bed at home with Mum and I at his side when it happened with his favourite ipod music collection playing softly in the background. While we are struggling with our loss like anyone does we can gain some relief in the fact he is free from pain. I know he'll always be the guardian angel on my shoulder.
Thanks to all for your kind words and support in recent months.
You are an outstanding group of people.
Abbey

    I'm so sorry for your loss. It's a great comfort knowing he was with you and your mum when he passed on. It's so hard to lose a parent (or any loved one for that matter), but you are right he will be looking over you, just as I know my mum always is.

    I am very sorry
    I am very sorry for your loss, I hope the fond memories of your dad will help bring you peace. Grief is such a hard journey, it takes you where it wants to take you and you have no choice but to go along. I still miss my mom every day and look forward to the day when I join her in Heaven. {{hugs}]

    We are so very sorry for your loss. I lost my father about 9 years ago and still miss him. I do feel him around me though, like an angel. I'm sure your Dad will do the same for you.

    My condolences and thoughts are for you
    Abbey... there are no words that ever do justice to the passing of someone we love, and I am not even going to attempt to come up with some because they'd never be right.

    You just have to take everything a day at a time and know that it is totally normal and healthy to grieve... and all your friends here are thinking of you and your mom through this very hard time.
