Dad's Death
Two weeks ago, Dad drew his final breath.
Now I have no parents because of his death.
He was battling leukemia and took a turn for the worse.
It was unpleasant to see him being hauled in the hearse.
He passed away on the 13th of July.
When I went to his funeral, I had to say goodbye.
He suffered tremendously while he battled cancer.
Why did he get leukemia, only God has the answer.
During all of this, people were by his side.
He couldn't beat his illness even though he tried.
When I saw him in his casket, it was sad.
Many people came to pay their respects to Dad.

I am terribly sorry for your loss Randy. Both of my parents have passed on too so I do know how sad this

time is for you. Wishing you comfort in knowing your dad is no longer suffering and is resting peacefully.

Dear Friend:  it is really sad when both parents are in Heaven.  You obviously had wonderful Parents and you are a wonderful son.  Lovely loving tribute to your Mom and Dad.
