Next weekend is my Fathers memorial service. When he lost his battle with pancreatic cancer it was 5 five days before Christmas. My Mother made a hard decision, and decided to forego a traditional funeral, and plan a “Celebration of His Life” later on.
I have never made a speech at a family gathering. I had never felt the need. I am compelled by a daughters love for her father, to stand up in front of family and friends and talk about my Dad. All I know is that it has to be good. I never wanted to disappoint my father. Only make him proud of me.
Writing my Father’s eulogy got me thinking about what people will say about me when I die? What I have learned writing about my “Father” is that now that he is gone he did no wrong in life. The good outweighs the bad. Hopefully people will be so kind when I cross over?
I will miss my Dad until the day I meet him at my “Welcome to Heaven Party.” Then I will find out if the Eulogy made him proud? God Bless!
