Goodbye Dad

This morning my Dad passed away whilst on holiday in the South of France with my Mum. We are all devasted. He was the rock in our lives; loving, happy, charming, a real flirt, and capable - he was the best Dad anyone could ever have wished for. I miss him already. My brother and sister are driving down to Mum as we speak, and as I don't have a passport at the minute, I'm holding the fort here. The waiting is the hardest bit. I'm in touch with everybody and yet I feel like I'm doing nothing.
This is how I will always remember him; laughing and happy

How I wish I could have just one more hug from my Daddy.

Goodbye Dad, I'll always love you.

Im really sorry to read of your loss. Its hard to find the words to say at such a time.
Its strange that it hurts so much to remember someone thats gone but its your memories that keep you warm...and make you smile. Lovely photos. Take care

I am so sorry for your loss, Samsara. You father sounds like he was a wonderful person. I know it's hard to feel like you are doing nothing (I remember from when my mother died), so I hope your mother and brother and sister will be back soon so you can all be together. You and your family have my deepest sympathy.

I know how hard it is to feel you can do nothing, but there will be plenty for you to do in time. Take this time to try to collect yourself and look after yourself.
My thoughts and best wishes are with you.

I'm very behind in my bloglines, but I just wanted to pass along my condolences.
