My father was my biggest fan and my greatest role model. I could call him at any time and he always has a solution to my problem. Life is different without him, but I am grateful I got to call him my dad. My dad was my hero. He was the most courageous and resourceful man. I never questioned if he loved or cared for me because he made it so obvious. I still feel him with me each day and I am living life for the both of us now. Farewell Dad!
Dad I really miss you, never knew you would leave us so suddenly, you were a good man, you advised me and did your best to provide for my siblings and I. You tried your best in helping people, I am saddened that death took you away, but God said in all things we should give him thanks. Your death left a scar in our hearts but your legacy will stand in our life. We miss you Dad.. Adieu….

Your Loving Son

Dad only made it through the 10th grade, but he managed to raise 4 kids by working hard in the same factory job for over 47 years. By responsibly saving, he was even able to have a financially secure retirement.

He was a silent man, rarely expressing his opinion. Because he would be exhausted at the end of his work day, we hardly talked; he would fall asleep in his chair. Yet I knew he loved all of us kids, even when we disappointed him. His kids and good deeds are his legacy. Mom was at his side when he died, and after 65+ years of marriage, all she wanted was “20 more minutes.” You were a great man dad. We are proud to be your kids, yet heartbroken that you are no more. Adieu Dad!!

Well he was the best father I think anyone could ask for. Always had a smile on his face, never let anything get to him, he was in a coma for a long time. But even so I would always see a smile.

My father was born on the _____________. I was raised by my dad alone as an only child. I basically followed in his footsteps which made me what I am today. I am forever grateful for that.

I can’t be accurate of when my dad was in a coma but when news had originally hit I refused to visit him (Not out of spite, mainly because I didn’t wanna get upset in front of my Nan). But luckily he pulled through, and I was ecstatic the old fart has to spend more years with me.

But on the (Insert death date) my life came to a complete stop. I was fast asleep in my room and I was supposed to be going out with a couple of friends. I had noticed my dog wasn’t in my room so I went to check outside (My house is a bungalow). And the second I turned the corner he was laying on this chest. At first I thought we was messing around because we had this childish bond, but I called his name 6 times and no response. I think in these situations you don’t think you only react and you go numb for a while.

I don’t want to explain more because I know it’s too soon to post this but I’d rather get it out because leaving it in my head isn’t great. But that’s the life of my dad, soldier, father, best friend. He gave me the best 21 years of my life and to that I’ll remember him as he always was; childish but caring.

Sleep well dad, I’ll never forget you.

A giant pine, magnificent and old
Stood staunch against the sky and all around
Shed beauty, grace and power.
Within its fold birds safely reared their young.
The velvet ground beneath was gentle,
and the cooling shade gave cheer to passers by.
Its towering arms a landmark stood, erect and unafraid,
As if to say, “Fear naught from life’s alarms”.It fell one day.
Where it had dauntless stood was loneliness and void.
But men who passed paid tribute – and said,
“To know this life was good,
It left it’s mark on me. Its work stands fast”.
And so it lives. Such life no bonds can hold –
This giant pine, magnificent and old. Adieu Dad.
My dad never met a stranger. He was a good and honest man who just loved to talk about his pride for his brautiful family to anyone who would listen. I lost him to _________ at the age of _______. He was a workaholic and loved doing anything outdoors. He never seemed to feel that it was work. It was really hard watching such a strong man go down like this. He was always handsome, even until the end…just in a sick way, of course. Dad, you always told me that having two sons, that I would get my little girl one day through my boys—and, I did. I have a couple of picture’s of you in the living room and she always looks at you. I tell her who you are, and she repeats your name now. I tell her how very much you would have loved her. It tears me apart that I will never be able to sit her on your lap, like I did with her brothers. I love you with all of my heart and miss you more and more with each passing day. It hurts so much that I feel I cannot breathe at times. I pray that God is with you and has his loving arms wrapped around you! Gone, yes..but NEVER FORGOTTEN!! RIP DAD..
I don’t think I can be able to type all the things you did for us (your kids).
You were quiet mostly, but also funny. You never judged us by gender, you treated us all equally, you made sure you provided all we needed, all you asked us in return was just to make good grades and bring home our certificates. Now, you left without waiting to see our certificates, you couldn’t even give us a sign that you would soon leave. I regret leaving the house in a hurry last Christmas, if I had known that was the last time I would see you, I wouldn’t have gone back to school in a hurry. Now I miss you every single day. You are all we ever had, and now you are gone, I just wish this was just a nightmare so I can wake up to your call tomorrow cause I miss you so so much. I can’t get over this. I miss you a lot .. I LOVE YOU DADDY..
Dear Daddy
I still cannot believe you have left us- we will always remember and love you. You have a left a big void in our lives and life will never be the same again. You will always be in our thoughts, prayers and in our hearts. I wish we expressed how much we loved you when you were here with us. I wish I could turn back time. We will never forget you -and you always remain our dear daddy.
Love from your children.. Adieu dad!!
As we look back over time
We find ourselves wondering …..
Did we remember to thank you enough
For all you have done for us?
For all the times you were by our sides
To help and support us …..
To celebrate our successes
To understand our problems
And accept our defeats?
Or for teaching us by your example,
The value of hard work, good judgment,
Courage and integrity?
We wonder if we ever thanked you
For the sacrifices you made.
To let us have the very best?
And for the simple things
Like laughter, smiles and times we shared?
If we have forgotten to show our
Gratitude enough for all the things you did,
We’re thanking you now.
And we are hoping you knew all along,
How much you meant to us. Farewell Dad. We love you!
My dad, (Insert Name) was and still is in memory, a strong, intelligent, dedicated and honest man. He sacrificed his years doing good for his family, without wanting or expecting anything in return. My dad set an example to others, for his integrity and loyalty. There wasn’t anything my dad wouldn’t do to make our life better. His joyful, positive spirit was remarkable, along with his acceptance of everyone he knew. My dad was a very dedicated leader, and gave his all in everything he set his heart to do. We were always taken care of very well by my dad, and we always felt so proud of him, for who he was. Now, he is in the afterlife. We still feel so proud of him, and we marvel about all he was and all he did. Our love for my dad stays strong as the days go by.
He’s still our hero!!
Daddy as a young man you taught me determination. I thank you for that so much. I learned appreciation from having a dad that provided for us. You taught me the importance of education! We had so many good times, memories, love that no one can ever take from me. You fought through many surgeries and survived! I survived many things in life with the determination I learned from you. You taught me to love so hard! I live with that! I understand that now as I’m grown. We loved going looking at antiques for a bargain. I guess that’s where I get that bargaining from. Thanks for teaching me to do it myself if I really wanted something, never let anyone drag me down! When those grandbabies were born you loved them so much as they loved their Grand daddy! Thanks for being my Daddy! I love you. You went through many trying times. You amazed me. As your baby girl! So many things you taught me, but the greatest thing was I was truly loved! Adieu Daddy..
Daddy I never believed that you will leave us on that faithful day. It happened like a movie and now you are no where to be found. The legacies you left behind and the unity you always bring amongst your family will never be forgotten, I promise to start from where you stopped dad. Having you as a father was the best experience I have had. You were the brother that I never had . Daddy I feel pain when ever I remember that you did not wait to eat from my hustle after all your struggles to see me out of school. You were a man of peace, honour and dignity. May the Almighty Lord grant your Peaceful and gentle soul rest in his vine yard Amen. Love you plenty Daddy and you know that!..Adieu.
When the mirror is broken you no longer see your image. On that dreadful day (Insert the date he died) that you departed this world to join the saints it has not been same again for me.
Daddy you were the mirror at which I looked at my life, the mirror at which I looked at myself and now that you are gone my life is so empty that I feel it in my soul. My solace is the fact that you live a righteous life. Every moments of your life is like a book on a path towards heavenly bliss..
Daddy when I close my eyes the image of you is all I see… The summary of our togetherness from cradle to your exit lingers on my mind it’s a memory that even death cannot erase…
Your departure has made me broken and transformed me into a man. Not by gender but by willingness to do what great men do knowing that death is the end of every mortal. The transformation that life is vain and everything in it is vanity.
This death won’t separate us as I would soon grow old and exit just like you did and we meet again soon to continue as father and son. Then my son also would pay tribute to me like I am doing this morning to your blessed memory.
Rest in the Lord true soldier of faith. Adieu my mirror.
I don’t have the words to express how much I miss you. I was with you when you breathed your last. Me, daddy’s girl. From a tender age you told me that you loved me, and I grew up knowing it is normal to openly tell my father that I love him and vice versa. This is not common in the African tradition but you loved me and said it out loud and that was it. I’m glad that I told you that I loved you, glad that you knew. I will always cherish all the wonderful memories. I know you are watching over all of us, mum(the love of your life) – whom you loved so much ever since high school, my 3 brothers whom you brought up to be respectful men ,and me, daddy’s girl. We all miss you terribly. I miss you terribly. I speak with you all the time and I know you can hear me. I love you Daddy.
Adieu my Hero!!
He never made a fortune, or a noise
In the world where men are seeking after fame;
But he had a healthy brood of girls and boys
Who loved the very ground on which he trod.
They thought him just little short of God;
Oh you should have heard the way they said his name –
‘Father.’There seemed to be a loving little prayer
In their voices, even when they called him ‘Dad.’
Though the man was never heard of anywhere,
As a hero, yet somehow understood
He was doing well his part and making good;
And you knew it, by the way his children had
Of saying ‘Father.’He gave them neither eminence nor wealth,
But he gave them blood untainted with a vice,
And opulence of undiluted health.
He was honest, and unpurchable and kind;
He was clean in heart, and body, and in mind.
So he made them heirs to riches without price –
This father.He never preached or scolded; and the rod –
Well, he used it as a turning pole in play.
But he showed the tender sympathy of God.
To his children in their troubles, and their joys.
He was always chum and comrade with his boys,
And his daughters – oh, you ought to hear them say
‘Father.’Now I think of all achievements ‘tis the least
To perpetuate the species; it is doneBy the insect and the serpent, and the beast.
But the man who keeps his body, and his thought,
Worth bestowing on an offspring love-begot,
Then the highest earthly glory he was won,
When in pride a grown-up daughter or a son
Says ‘That’s Father.’ Adieu My Father.. I miss you!
