A few months ago as many of you know I spent a very trying period with my Dad as he got very sick.
Im sure many of you remember me talking about it. For those who dont here is the story of what happened.
http://hubpages.com/hub/Heart-Attack-I- … Given-Back
Well now I come on here to tell all my friends that even though we thought Dad was doing so much better at 430 yesterday he passed away.
I need to thank all the Hubbers who helped me pray when Dad got sick. Now he will never worry about anything.
Some may ask why I am here only hours after my Dad passed and that is a fair question.
Good or not writing has always been an outlet for me and today is no different.
In fact in the next day or so I will do an entire Hub about my father celebrating his life. I will ask all Hubbers at that time to just take a few minutes to read about my father so they can understand what a great man he was.
So thank you for now.
To my Dad I have always loved you and you are so sadly missed already
Rest In Peace my pops
Sorry to hear that Dale!
At least he will be at peace and in no pain.
That's what makes hubpages so cool, you can have the money making hubpages and drop in the personal hubpages too!
I wish you well and sorry for your loss!
I do not think I was on the site when your dad first had health problems, none the less I am sorry for your loss . I hope that everyone here has a read of your hub when its finished. Hub pages seems like a really great place to ask for and get support. I will check out this thread for a link to your hub when it is finished. I am honored that you come to us for support and you will be in my prayers .
Take care during this time of sadness and let us know how you are......
Oh, Dale, I am so sorry to hear that. I hope your writing proves to be cathartic for you. My thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family.
My condolences Dale! Really sorry to hear about your Dad. Hope you and your family will be okay.
So sorry to hear of your loss Dale. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
kindest regards Zsuzsy
Everything happens for a reason Dale, sorry you had to go through it all. Best of wishes to you and your family.
Thank you to everyone. Periodically through the day I will be checking in but today is going to be a very busy day with company and making plans.
Dale I am so sorry to hear this. We are all thinking of you at this sad time. My heart goes out to you and yours.
Peace be with him and your family at this time. I will light a candle for his passing and for your family to remain strong. Blessed be to you and yours.
Just stopping in to check out comments and say thank you. A place like Hubpages really helps in good and bad times
So sorry to hear this Dale, my condolences to you and your family.
My condolences, Dale. A difficult time.
Glad you are finding an outlet that works.
Now he will never worry about anything.
Even if I am not yet a member when you post the first news about your dad, reading it now made me think about the things your family went through and finally you said those words....Now he will never worry about anything......may he rest in peace and condolences to your family......
So sorry to hear that your dad passed away Dale. I understand about the writing being an outlet. I joined HubPages exactly a month after my dad passed away. My dad, and a tribute to his life, is why I use the clapping monkey as my avatar (I have a hub about it). Take care of yourself Dale.
Dale, I'm so sorry for the loss of your Dad. My thoughts are with you and your family.
Hi Dale, my thoughts and best wishes for you and your family today. I know that the wonderful memories of your father will sustain you.
I'm so sorry Dale to hear that you lost your dad. I lost my dad early this year, so I can empathize with what you might be feeling at this moment. I will be praying for you and your family during this difficult time.
I'm so sorry Dale. I had no idea. Thanks for sharing in your hub and the hubs to come. I will be thinking of you and your family.
Dale, I am sorry you lost your Dad and hope you are coping. I'm about to go back and re-read your original Hub. My thoughts are with you and prayers going up for comfort.
May you stay strong and focused in this difficult time.
May you be a pillar of strength to your family.
May the memory of your father live on and not be forgotten.
May you be comforted that he suffers no more, my friend.
This is a perfect example as to why I cant stay away from this place. The overwhelming support from people I only know through their words is so very special to me.
It was my wife who encouraged me to post in the forum because she knows what HubPages means to me.
I will be following up with a special hub for my Dad but that will be in a few days after we start to wind down.
I am sorry for your loss Dale. *hugs* to you and your entire family.
Again I must stop in and say thanks. The support is greatly appreciated.
My Dad called me on the phone every night, it has now been 3 nights that I havent talked to him. I know things will get easier but dammit they are getting harder first
Once again thanks
Dale - As you celebrate your dad's life, celebrate yourself and those of your family, remember you are his legacy. My prayers are with all of you. Blessings....
Really sorry to hear about your Dad Dale and my condolences to your family circle. I think writing a Hub about him is a good idea, I just think that will help you in a way, take care !
Dale, I hope you find comfort in your family, and writing. I know writing helps me a lot when I am going through difficulty. I am sorry to hear of your loss, but it sounds like you are at least able to be relieved for your father's sake. No more pain, ever. That can be a bit of comfort. At least its what I try to remind myself of, when I think of my loved ones that have passed. Hang in there Dale. Well be thinking of you and your family.
I'm so sorry to hear this. I agree that writing a hub to honor him is a great idea. My thoughts are with you and your family during this tough time.
Well this was a long day. Many hours since I have been here but thank you again to all my Hubpage friends
Condolences, Dale. My own Dad passed in 1997 but helped save us two years later. We were "homesteading" on a remote Montana acreage when hit with a wildfire. I had no choice but to grab our only shovel and start fighting the flames. Pam was frozen in fear on the couch (her bed) in the cabin when Dad appeared to her--she's a sort of real life Ghost Whisperer but took 5 days to get around to telling me--and told her it would be okay AND what to do.
Once she swung into action, she didn't see him again. The two of us saved our place that day, lost very little when we could have lost everything, and what Pam accomplished as her part of that effort was awesome beyond belief--but only because Dad helped her break her terror-induced paralysis.
I look forward to reading your forthcoming Hub about your Dad. Who knows? He may well be looking over your shoulder as you write. After what we experienced, I'm not sure a loved one that close to us is ever truly gone.
I did see the previous post, and would like to offer my condolences.
Your dad will always be with you through your loving memories.
Such a good man leaves you a wonderful opportunity to honor him everyday in doing what he taught you to do. Love!
My hearfelt best wishes to you and your loved ones at this time.
I lost my beautiful daughter in law at the age of 39.
She was so loving, I remember her daily by emulating things she did better than me.
Dale, heartfelt condolences to you and your family. There aren't words that will help at a time like this, but those of us who have gone through what you're going through right now can truly, truly, sympathize.
I'm new here in HP. I didn't know about the story of your dad.
Sorry to hear about that, Dale. My condolences and prayers to you and your family.
Hugs Dale, sorry to hear of your loss. Prayers to you and yours.
I havent gone online much the last couple days but I try to get on HubPages at least once or twice a day.
The responses I read help me get through the day. I know he was 73 and I am 42 but that doesnt make things any easier.
For many months I have talked to my Dad everyday on the telephone and now it has been 4 days since I have talked to him and the hardest part of that is I know that number is growing everyday and there is nothing I can do.
Thanks again to all at Hubpages
Sorry to hear that Dale - our thoughts are with you in this difficult time.
I just got on for a few minutes and wanted to thank all the Hubbers for their prayers and great words.
Well my Dad is now buried and it is time to set out on the long track of moving on.
I need to thank all the Hubbers for their well wishes and prayers.
In the next day or 2 I will be doing my dedication Hub to my father. I hope you will all stop by and see what a great man he was.
Once again thank you very much.
Again condolences, Dale. It's long road back to feeling like the "old you" again, but each day will bring you that much closer to it.

My pet dog died today. I am devastated and it seems will never recover from this tragedy. It almost seems the end of the world for me.
