And let it be hard. Don't deny it. I lost my mom in March. Cancer, but it was quick. I was there when she passed...I was alone. Within an hour I had to call the hospice and the funeral home and watch them take her away.
BUT! the night before I prayed hard over and over for her parents to take her home. She was in such an awful state. She brought me in to the world and it was my task to help her out of it peacefully.
Your dad went peacefully........you have so much love within you and around you. It is a time for sharing that love, and you are doing that. No one will ever be prepared for the death of a parent or loved one. But it happens, and it's part of life and love. We love you, we support you. Let it happen as it will.
