I need to talk, I need to share what I have been going through this past week. Right now I am so thankful to have this blog as an outlet.

Last Monday my dad died. His death was a SHOCK to say the least. It was devastating and the most traumatic experience I have ever had to deal with.
My dad and I were very close,we spent alot of time together each day, my children ADORED him. My 2 younger sisters still live at home, they are 20 and 14. My stepmother had been married to him for 24 years.

Life seemed great for all of us until Monday morning.

We got a call that my dad was not at work, he was not answering his cell phone and it had been 2 hours since he left for work. I must have called his cell about 25 times in a one hour period.
No Answer.
To make a very painful story short, my uncle came to the house at 8:00AM on Monday morning and told us that my dad had jumped off of a bridge. He took his own life. He was gone. No warning, no signs,no good-byes. Complete SHOCK.
None of this will ever make sense, it will never be better and I am certain I will NEVER get over this completely.
I will talk more later, right now I am just asking for your prayers.


  1. Oh sweetie - I am so sorry you are having to go through this. I wish I could send hugs and love and hope to you through the internet - please know that I am sending them your way. I can't imagine the shock and hurt you and your family are feeling. You have friends out here - I can't (and won't) say that I understand what you are going through but know that I am out here should you need anything. My thoughts are with you!

  2. All of our prayers are coming your way. May God grant you the strength and peace to get through this terrible time. You will be in my thoughts. I cant imagine your devistation. I am so very sorry.


  3. I really don't know what to say during this tragic time, other than I am praying for you nd your family.

  4. Oh, I am just speechless...with big goosebumps. There are no words. I will definitely be thinking of you.
