The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

Life is a funny thing. Only sometimes, it doesn't make us laugh. For those of you who have known me for more than a minute, you know that my dad has always been my hero. (Heck- how can you not love a guy in a uniform with Toblerone in his pockets?) Anyway, I lost my dad unexpectedly yesterday. I don't have it in me to write about it at this moment so here's a link of one of my favorite memories.

Oh Dana...I'm so terribly sorry.  It says so much about both of you that you call him your hero!  Much love heading your way from Topanga.

I know you know he's always with you and I also know there's not much I can say to make this time any easier for you. He lives on in the the cells and souls of those he's touched. Much love to you, Dana. I think we all love him too. He gave us you.

Words are inadequate and pale. None of them will make much sense to you for a while but that's all we have here... Time will hold onto him just as your heart and mind will, always. You will take him with you in everything you do.

♥ I know how you feel... It does get easier over time when you see/understand/feel(?) just how how deeply your hero is woven into you, your family; your life. It's a good legacy. The best.

I'm sorry for your loss. 

When my dad died I swear I was in shock for a week?  It hit home when my brother went to handle his personal items.  My dad was organized and clean dude so when my brother saw that he had left his breakfast dishes in the sink that morning (my dad died in a car accident) he broke down and cried.  I totally get why it made him cry and of course when he told me the story I sobbed for the first time since his death.  It was like this story made his death real.

I hope when you are able you will blog about everything.  Man, I wish I could hug you, but if you're like me any attempt at kindness when I'm emotionally distraught just makes me cry more - I hate it...ha.

I know how you feel about your dad from reading many of your blogs, Dana. You must feel like you've lost the sun and the moon. I hope you find comfort as your days resume their normal revolutions through the universe, and that you'll always feel some part of your father within you.
