Dear Stark and Family. :(

"Sympathy prayer

:pray: Dear Lord, please comfort those in grief,
Love them, lift them, give relief
For loss they’ve suffered, sadness felt;
Make this sorrow slowly melt.

Lord, let happy memories ease,
Creating peace like a gentle breeze,
And as you help them make it through.
Draw them closer, Lord, to you". :pray:

~ Joanna Fuchs ~

Sincere condolences on your families loss (Dad).
Stark, you are in my Prayers.

Stark wrote:Hi all,

My father passed away peacefully in his sleep over the weekend. I was able to spend 2 weeks with him in hospice before he slipped away, and it was a chance for us to reconcile the past. I won't lie, it was difficult. But my sisters and I forgave and were there for him.

I fly back home again in a few days to lay him to rest. This will be difficult too. Please keep us in your hearts - the kind words given to me earlier are still with me.


Sorry to hear of your dad's passing, Stark. Wonderful that you reconciled; it is important to move on with peace and acceptance in one's heart. You are all in our prayers.

My condolences to you, Stark, and your family including your sisters. It's always sad to lose someone close to you, no matter what the relationship was like. May you be comforted in the days to come with the knowledge that you and your Dad had the time to reconcile the past. My thoughts are with you.

My very sincere condolences to you Stark at this difficult time. You are in my thoughts and prayers. It is a very difficult time and I sympathise and empathise with you.

My Mother passed away last month and we travelled to the coast on the weekend to scatter her ashes. I am thankful for my siblings and SO who were there for me in the last few weeks and I am glad your Sister was there with you.

It is good to know that you took the opportunity to reconcile and that is a blessing in itself.

You are in our thoughts.
