I can't believe it yet, but it happened.
My dad passed away yesterday morning 5:55am (german time).

I know I haven't seen much of him since my move to the US in 1990, but I've thought about him each and every day.

I thank god for the opportunity of seeing him one last time before he passed.
He is in a much better place now.

My mom seems to be doing okay with it all. She's been with him through good and bad times and will miss him dearly.

Wish I could talk her into coming over here for a while. maybe in time, who knows.
Thank you for reading this. There is so much more I'd like to say, but I don't think I can manage yet.

My heart is breaking for you! I'm so very sorry for your loss. Though I hope you can take comfort in knowing you saw him one last time. I know he was probably thrilled to see you. I'm here if you need anything.
