I just had a feeling....

8 February 2012

You were on my mind when I woke...
I even had a little conversation with you.....totally in my head....
I messaged Mum to check....
She said you were so unwell......but still hanging on....
I was glad I had phoned.....and I sent my love to all.
I couldn't shrug the feeling I had though....
I went out for lunch with a friend....and even mentioned that I just had a feeling Id know.
(I didn't)

Dad phoned no less than 30mins later......and as soon as I heard his voice...I knew.
You had gone....my dear Parps.... thank you for everything....for being such a huge part of my life.

and remember..." wherever you are......and wherever we are.....we are always together"
Love you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~edited to add~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thank you so much for all the lovely thoughts and cyber hugs....
I do feel so very lucky.
I've had an amazing Parp.....well into my adult life.
He has seen not only my kids grow into adults...
(plus all of his other grandies)
but also his great great grand-daughters come into this world.
I've shared a bond.... I've smirked at his views....and laughed at his way with words.

How lucky are we....another guardian angel to watch over us.
