"H" is for HEAVEN

Hello everyone.

Today is going to be one of the hardest days I've had to face in this journey we call life.

We have all gathered here in Phoenix to say goodbye to my Dad.

Today we are taking him off life support.


It's time for him to go to Heaven!


I'm happy to bring him to the gate.



My dad will be loved and missed by many!

It's time for him to move on, and meet up with family and friends in Heaven!


I LOVE YOU DAD!!!!!

oxoxoxoxoxox,
Jess

Jessi
My heart goes out to you and your family. What a blessing that you will be there for your Dad as he makes this journey into the next chapter of his life. He knows how much you love him and he knows you are byhis side. Many prayers sent your way

Simply Me Art said...

Oh Jessi, Im so so very Sorry. What a very difficult decision you all have had to make. I'm sure your Dad knows you are all there with him as he goes on to his next chapter. Exactly nine years ago today, my husband and his three sisters and mother did the very same thing for his father. He is in your Heart forever and I'm sure he is so Proud. Be strong and know so many people are thinking of you. Big Huge Hugs, Jamie

I just found your blog today, what sad new I had to find.

I was with my dad when he passed 5 years ago - it was the roughest thing I've ever done - but on the same hand, I'm so thankful I was there!

I'll keep you in my prayers today -

I have an AWESOME poem I had printed and framed - I put it up at the funeral home and it's now in my bedroom (about a daughter losing her dad) - if you'd like it, just let me know!

Love you! XO,Jenn

sandra Lee said...

I know exactly how you are feeling as I had to say goodbye to my dad April 22, two weeks before that I had to say goodbye to my mom. They were a lively couple and a team for 56 years and my dad just could no longer go on without my mom. The time you will have with your dad is so precious and I am so thankful to God for giving our family the chance to thank them and love them as they left this place. Bless you and know that you are definitely in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs

Jessi, I am so sorry! I will have you and your family in my prayers in the coming days. We had to take my mom off life support on Thanksgiving Day 2005, the worst time of my life, and while the devil likes to make me doubt our decision, I know my mom is rejoicing every min. If there is anything I can do please do not hesitate to ask.

Dear Jessi,
You are such a brave girl. I am happy that you were able to be with your dad one last time. That is such a blessing. My favorite quote of all time is: “The greatest thing you'll ever learn is to love and be loved in return.” You'll always have your daddy in your heart, Jessi. Wishing you and your family all my best.
Holly

Jeanne said...

Jessi - I know how difficult losing your dad must be. I am glad you were able to get down to see him one last time. It's one of life's most difficult experiences, but it brings families closer and you learn how much strength and faith you really have. I've lost both of my parents - my mother when she was the age I am right now - so I know what an emotional roller coaster you are on. Remember, you dad will always be with you in your heart and mind. The memories never fade, they actually become more vivid. Take care sweetie - you and your family are in my prayers.
hugs,
jeanne

I am so very sad to read this. Im just getting around to catching up on my blogs since switching internet providers.My heart breaks for you. I lost my Daddy a year ago July 2nd. I don't know how in the world I've made it a year without him. It's the hardest thing I've gone through to date. I miss him soooo very much. I know exactly what you are going through. If you ever need a listening ear or shoulder, Im here. Again, I am so very sorry for your loss.
