The king is dead

The man that helped raise me died on Sunday.  Calling him my stepfather isn't enough.  He was my dad and I love him.  He had been sick a long time. 

This man walked me down the isle when I got married.  My kids called him Granddaddy. 

They won't remember him.  They're too young.  It hurts my heart. 

Thank you so everyone who has checked in on me recently.  I've had a great deal of things going on.  It's been hard for me to write anything.  I appreciate you all very much.  All my love to you.

Hey hun! I already told you, but I'm truly sorry fr your loss. I wish I could make you feel better. Maybe I'll use my friend's secret weapon. So here it is, brace yourself... http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/388907_220468591360524_126894987384552_502479_667891885_n.jpg

Love you. All my thoughts go to you and your family.

My condolences on your loss.

*hugs you tight* I'm so sorry for your loss =(

If it's any help I was pretty young when my grandmother died and I still remember her. Not like I remember events that happened later but I have images and feelings associated with her. I'm sure your children will remember him in their own way.

Don't worry about not writing, it's a hobby that's supposed to make you happy and not feel worse.

I wish you all the best and if there is ever a way I can help you just let me know *hugs* My Inbox and Twitter are always open.

I'm sorry for your loss. As for your kids remembering their 'Granddaddy' that is a whole other thing. I'm sure you have pictures around and you can tell them all about the good man that raised you as they get older. They may not remember him personally but they will remember his legacy in you.

Take care of yourself.

Honey I'm so very sorry! My thoughts are with you and your family as you go though this!

Oh, honey, I'm so sorry...
I know I don't know you personally, I know I only read your amazing work, but I can relate. I can't begin to imagine your loss. I'm sure he was proud to have a great daughter like you..
My heart goes out to you and your family..
Much love <3 xx

I'm a huge fan of your writing. I just noticed this post today while looking up fics to re-read.
I am so sorry for your loss. Family is more than blood, and fatherhood is more than genetics.
Your children might not remember him, but they could come to know him through your stories and memories. It's inadequate for me to say that right now, but writing down stories about my deceased loved ones helped me.

I lost my father after a long illness a few years ago. It still hurts. My youngest doesn't remember. We keep him alive with stories and pictures, and I try to remember how blessed I was to have him for the time I did. I'm so sorry for your loss and I wish you peace and comfort during this difficult time.

Hi, just checking in to see how you are doing and to let you know that there are people all over the world who are thinking of you.

Hey hon. I'm so sorry for your loss, and I apologize that it took me this long to see this. I've been thinking about you and wondering how you are, but I haven't been on LJ all that much so I didn't see this until now. I'm sending all the love to you and your family. <3
