RIP Sarge (Updated)

This is one of the hardest posts I've ever done.

This morning Lu's father, our own beloved Sarge, passed away.

I'll have some thoughts and things to say a little later but for this week I'm going to maintain a silent blog in respect for a man we all loved so very dearly. He leaves a gigantic hole in all our hearts. Another warrior and good man is gone and our lives are sadder and drearier. I'm sorry. I am undone.


Goodbye my father in spirit. May you soar on the wings of angels. We miss you so very badly.

Six

Update:
Thank you all for your words of sympathy and love. Lu has read each of them and has been moved and touched by them all.

Viewing tonight with the services and interment  tomorrow.

Sarge's Obit. He was the real deal.

Please pray for Lu and her Mom. I don't know how they're going to get through this.

I am so sorry for your loss.

I wish I could say something besides that, but I am not that eloquent.

Hugs to you both.

My sincerest condolences.

Six, Lu, you have my sympathy and prayers. It is so hard to lose a parent, especially during the holidays. DH lost his mom last year in December, and his father back in '03 at Thanksgiving dinner. We share your pain and grief.

Six, I will email you that ph# you asked for after the new year. Give y'all plenty of time to take care of business and such.

Prayers for you all.

Mike was truly a great guy. A warrior, but gentile spirit. His last several years were filled with physical challenges. No more pain for him.

Rev. Paul said...

Our condolences to you both. I'm so sorry.

Old NFO said...

Sorry for your loss, thoughts and prayers sent. May he rest in peace.

LauraB said...

What sad news! First, give Lu a tight hug from us and a kiss on the temple. Such a difficult thing, that letting go of a parent. And a beloved father-in-law...he always seemed more than that to you. Perhaps Trooper was glad to see an old friend...

Our prayers are with you all...
