Elwood Walter Kipe 1929-2013

I am totally heartbroken to lose my Dad today. He was truly one of a kind and I pray that he is at peace and happy in Heaven with my Mom.

I am so sorry, i could cry! I love my Daddy so mutch... thinking he would die... i feel with you!

Im so sorry, my english is soooo bad. i hope the following words could give you a Little hope...

Death is nothing at all

I have only slipped away into the next room

I am I and you are you

Whatever we were to each other

That we are still

Call me by my old familiar name

Speak to me in the easy way you always used

Put no difference into your tone

Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow

Laugh as we always laughed

At the little jokes we always enjoyed together

Play, smile, think of me, pray for me

Let my name be ever the household word that it always was

Let it be spoken without effort

Without the ghost of a shadow in it

Life means all that it ever meant

It is the same as it ever was

There is absolute unbroken continuity

What is death but a negligible accident?

Why should I be out of mind

Because I am out of sight?

I am waiting for you for an interval

Somewhere very near

Just around the corner

All is well.

Nothing is past; nothing is lost

One brief moment and all will be as it was before

How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting when we meet again!

Canon Henry Scott-Holland, 1847-1918, Canon of St Paul's Cathedral

So sorry, Joann. I lost my mother 3 months ago. It is really hard to lose your first parent, but seems so much harder when the other one passes. Will be praying for you.

Deepest sympathy on your loss. June 18th was my Dad's birthday. He passed in 1980 and there isn't a week that goes by that I don't think of him with a smile. He will happily remain with you the rest of your life.
