Good bye, Dad

My father passed away yesterday, which means at some point I will resume my writing here.  As his health declined, I experienced a wide range of emotions, and much confusion. Now it is all in the past and I believe I will be able to put things more into perspective.

RIP, Dad.  I love you.

  1. Shelia – we spoke a couple of times on Marc’s blog last year – I’m a universalist Christian. I liked your posts (I think you are a nurse and a liberal Catholic). Just came upon this thread and I hold you, your Dad, and your family in the Light.

      I am a LPN by trade, although I have been on total disability for a couple of years. I started off as a true conservative Catholic, and, you are correct–I’m now a liberal Catholic. I’ve dropped the idea of an eternal physical place called ‘hell’, and believe everyone has a chance to advance the Kingdom of God. If not now, then in the hereafter, where I think there is still hope for the wayward soul. I have been completely changed by my dad’s death. If I ever get disciplined, it will reflect on this blog! Thanks for your kind words.

      • Hope for empty hell teaching is really gaining ground in the Catholic Church now. Your Dad is in good hands journeying into God as we all are but just in a different way now – and all manner of things shall be well 🙂 Well if you get disciplined that happens to all the best people – including many a saint 🙂

    I believe that my Dad can now talk to God/Jesus on our behalf, so there’s that comfort, too. I believe that those who remain alive on the other side can help us.

      This is a comfort. I am sure your Father is happy and has already learned so much that is hidden to us.

    Sheila, I am so sorry about your Dad. My dad died a couple years ago and I miss him so much. I pray that you will come to find comfort and peace after this great loss.
