An Update To All My Hubber Friends About My Dad

    Dale Mazurekposted 8 years ago

    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

    Love Dale

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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, 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.

    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! smile
    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. smile

    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 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

    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.
