I love you dad!

Friday, January 27, 2012C Riches





Not sure what to write. Or even if I should at all. but going through these photos I can "hear" the laughs and it's comforting somehow...a therapy of sorts.


Bye dad. I'll miss you. I love you and always will. Thank you for being my dad!



"Um homem inteligente, engraçado, estressado, bom, carinhoso e grosso.. tudo ao mesmo. Perfeito em seus defeitos. Meu papai. Quantas lembranças!" Meu Pai, por minha irmã, Ludmila. Exatamente como ele era!

"An intelligent man, funny, stressed, kind, caring and grumpy...all at the same time. Perfect in his imperfections. My daddy. What fun memories!" - My dad, as described my youngest sister, Ludmila. Exactly how he was!

TE AMO!!!

  4. I know there is no words to express the sorrow you feel and I know exactly how you feel. It will be 3 years in the beginning of March since my dad passed. I think and miss him every moment of the day. There is a huge loss that can not ever be replaced in my heart. But I see parts of him in Lauren- like his smile- that just melts my heart. Hugs to you from so far away!

  19. I just lost my father in October - there are no words to describe the man who made you who you are - that gave you the example of a husband to find and to raise your children to cherish. May the memories, pictures, and laughter that you have been comfort for you.

  24. I always read your blog but never commented. Perhaps the difficulty of communication, since I am from Brazil, but reading the post today, I was very excited and could not leave this page without letting my feelings. I wish that God give you strength to overcome this moment, and that can comfort you.
    My father is being treated for cancer, even commented on my blog a while ago, and I know what it means all this love and sense of loss.
    Receive a loving embrace.
    xoxo

    1. HI dawn, yes, i don't usually share too many intimate posts..;but I guess it was grief doing it. I felt the need to communicate with dada somehow, and since he was my No. 1 cheerleader and read my blog every day, it seemed natural...I felt closer to him!
      Thanks for the well wishes!
