Sigh Another Loss...

Nick- grandson, Aunt Laura, daughter Susan, Uncle Lee Dent
Today we received the sad news that my Uncle Lee Dent had passed away yesterday morning. Lee was the uncle I spoke of in prior posts that had Alzheimer's and who was in a nursing home. His wife (who was my Dad's favorite sister) my Aunt Laura was the one on life support not expected to live awhile back. She is recovering now thanks to much prayer and will be able to leave the hospital soon.
I had to take my mom to the funeral home tonight to see my uncle and it was hard to do, hard on us all so soon after losing Dad. I told my cousin Susan, Lee & Laura's only daughter that I wasn't happy to welcome her to this Sisterhood of those with Deceased Dad's....I love her and am always glad to share with her but wasn't wanting to share this with her or anyone else I love....
We both had wonderful fathers and no one can replace them on this earth. God sure picked a couple of good ones to take home to be with him.

My Dad, Me, My daughter

Dad and Mom

Thanks my friends for giving me this outlet to share my grief lately, it sure has helped to know that some of you are Daddy's Girls too and some of you have dealt with the loss of your dads to.

Thanks again,

Deb, I'm so glad that you do share. It gives us all a clear way to pray for you. Your family has experienced such loss and trials as of late and your testimony is one of seeking God, strength, and God is using you to teach those around you.
I'm glad I know you.
I'm sorry for the loss of your Uncle.
Love T
