A Last Farewell



My father passed away on Friday, the 4th of June, 2010.
Although he had been ailing for the past few months, it was a gentle passing, and he was able to speak almost till the very end. (He actually had some juice and buttermilk five minutes before he slipped away).
I like to think that he and my mother are together again.

Goodbye, Daddy, and thank you for everything.
More later.

dipali ji...further to the FB note Im sure Baisali's dad and yours will be arguing to do away with one river of milk and honey to accomodate for one with tea (or dipping tea bags in milk and honey)

Hugs Dipali! I think too that your parents are now together. Wish you peace and strength.

just from your description alone, somehow even a person who has not interacted with either one of your parents can see how they would be watching over each other.

our prayers are with you Dipali.

hmm if you are in a subbing mood would it be doing away with "a" river in the third line or "one"?

Love you, Dipali.
It must be painful losing both your parents so soon after one another. But I guess he didn't want to live much longer without his wife. Love like that humbles you.

So Sorry to hear it Dipali. Hugs to you and yes the short time it took, really makes you wonder that they are meant to be together up there as well.

Whatever age one maybe - it is tough to lose a parent. Not only will both of them be together again - I also get a feeling that they are taking care of me from up there!!

I am so sorry for your loss Dipali. Losing both your parents, that too in a year is hard. I hope you find some solace in the fact that he lived a full and happy life. Hugs to you.

I wonder why people have to die. I keep asking myself the same questions everytime a dear one dies. Why do people have to die?

Dipali, I just saw this. My most sincere condolences. Losing both your parents in such a short span of time must be tremendously difficult. But as you say, they must be with each other now. Thinking of you!
