August 29th, 2012.

I would like to start off this post by thanking everyone for your thoughts, love, light and prayers that you sent my way after the last post. I never got around to emailing people back but please know that I appreciated every single one. 

On August 29th, 2012, sadly my father lost his life. 
Thankfully, my sister and I were able to get there and spend the night with him...
Just the three of us. 
I probably gave him thousands of kisses. 
I must have told him a million times how much I love him. 

He waited for us.
His girls to come. 

On August 29th, 2012, my life changed forever. 
There is a piece of my heart missing, a piece that Daddy took with him, that he will hold on to until we meet again. 

I feel better having told all of you... my wonderful friends... 

Much Much Much Love, 
Courtney

So sorry for your loss, the pain you are feeling, and what you had to go through. If there is any comfort at all, it's so good you got to say your goodbyes and be with him. Prayers for you and your sister.
